  • Welcome Back Students and Parents!


    McAuliffe Middle School WEB Days  

    On Wednesday, August 26th and Thursday, August 27th, McAuliffe will host its annual Welcome Everybody (WEB) event. This event is for students NEW to McAuliffe and gives them the opportunity to meet fellow students, to get their 2015-2016 class schedule, to get their book locker and combination lock and tour the campus. Parents may choose to stay with their student or pick up their student at the end of the event. Please consider joining us on WEB Days! For more information, please see the flyer.


    When is WEB?

    Wednesday, August 26th – 9a.m. -10:30a.m. - Students with last names A – K

    Thursday, August 27th– 9a.m. -10:30a.m. - Students with last names L – Z





    “0” period classes: Will begin on the first day of school, Wednesday, 9/2 at 7:45 AM. Students taking classes at LAHS start class on the same day at 7:48 AM.




    Supplies: The first day of school, students should bring: pencil, pen, paper and notebook.


    Textbook Checkout: Textbooks will be checked out the first 4 days of school during class. Please have your 7th or 8th grade students bring last year’s ID (if they have it) to help facilitate the checkout process.


    Lockers: Will be issued during the first 3 days of school, 9/2-9/4. Returning students are encouraged to use their locks from previous years.


    PE Clothes: Will be issued in PE classes on 9/4 through 9/8.


    Drop Off and Pick-Up Information: The two school parking lots (Bloomfield Ave. and Cerritos Ave.) are busy with cars/trucks as fewer students are riding busses.


    Bloomfield Lot:

    AM drop-off between 8:15 and 8:45 AM is recommended. You may experience some delay exiting the lot onto Bloomfield due to the signal light at the Bloomfield/Cerritos intersection.


    PM drop-off between 3:10 and 3:25 PM is busy. If you arrive early to park in a stall, you may find your exit blocked by a waiting vehicle. If you arrive closer to 3:25, you will find less traffic. Again, exiting the lot onto Bloomfield may be slow due to the light at the intersection. It is our hope that courtesy and patience will carry the day. An alternative pick-up location is the church parking lot east of the school.


    Cerritos Lot:

    AM drop-off between 8:15 and 8:35 AM is recommended. Buses should arrive between 8:35 and 8:45 AM and their arrival prohibits other vehicles entering the lot. However, the Cerritos curb is “white” and vehicles may drop off and pick up at anytime.


    PM pick-up is prohibited between 3:00 and 3:25 PM to permit bus entry and exit. Vehicles may park in visitor space and along the Cerritos white curb. The church parking lot to the east of the school is also available for pick-up.


    Traffic seems to be the busiest the first two weeks of school until ALL figure out how things work. Please be patient and courteous.

Principal's Message

Ann Allen, PrincipalWelcome back to all of you for what I hope was a beautiful and restful spring break!  The upcoming weeks will be busy. Registration for current 6th, 7th and 8th graders will take place. Two Parent Nights for 8th graders will be taking place before the end of the month, and I encourage all parents and students to attend.  When making the transition from middle school to high school it is critical to have all the information you need to feel confident about your children  moving forward.  

This time of the year is bittersweet. I always feel happy, as I know our 8th grade students are well prepared and ready to move on. I also feel some sadness, as do our teachers, for we have watched your children transform into amazing young adults and have a place in our hearts for all of them. Middle school is a precious time, and I hope that we have served you well.

Although we will be busy, please do not forget that we are here to support and serve our students and our parents. Please do hesitate to drop in or call us if you need anything - we are happy to h
elp you.


Annie Allen
