Volunteers Needed

If you are interested in volunteering, please see Yazmin Cruz, our Community Representative,  in the main office.  

Volunteers are needed for: 

  • Drop and Go Valet Program
  • Breakfast in the Classroom

If you can give 30 minutes one or two days a week from 7:45-8:15 we could really use your help.

Remember you must complete an application in the main office and have a current TB test. All volunteers must have a current Volunteer Application on file in the office along with proof of a current TB test (within 6 months of volunteering).  The TB test is good for 4 years.   Any volunteer who works more than 16 hours a week must have a Live Scan completed through LAUSD.

Drop and Go Zone

The Drop and Go zone will be located on 247th St. The zone will be clearly marked with orange cones. To enter the zone you must approach the school from Narbonne Ave. We are asking that the Moon Ave. gate be for pedestrian traffic only.

For this program to be successful we need your cooperation. Please make sure to remember:


  • This is for your child's safety so please be patient
  • Have backpacks ready
  • Have your child sitting on the right passenger side of the vehicle
  • Say your goodbyes before you enter the Drop and Go Zone
  • Never let your child exit your vehicle outside of the zone



Test Results



Dear Parents/Guardians,

page1image2000 page1image2160

     As I start my second full month at Lomita Magnet, I continue to be amazed at the caliber of our students and the incredible parent/family involvement and participation rate. Our PTA continues to fundraise to benefit our students, our School Site Council had its first meeting and our English Learner Advisory Committee met as well. I am also very thankful to the many volunteers that help in our classrooms, our Breakfast in the Classroom program and our Valet/Drop & Go program. It is only through our combined effort and commitment that we make a difference at Lomita. Thank you all for your support of our school, the staff and I thank you and appreciate you.

     We had a fantastic Back to School Night last month, with every classroom visited by almost every student’s family. The classrooms truly reflected the wonderful environment your child learns in every day and I would like to take the opportunity to thank our teachers for everything they do for our children as well.

     We had a good start of our Valet/Drop & Go program and recently appealed to you for additional volunteers since there were days when only one or two volunteers participated during August and September. I am very happy to report that many families responded to our appeal and attended a meeting with Lomita Sheriff’s Deputy. I am looking forward to a very successful Valet/Drop & Go program this year and ask that you respect our volunteers, not “double stop” and proceed as far forward as possible before stopping your car so we may expedite drop off as much as possible. You will be receiving additional information regarding the program later in the fall, as soon as we coordinate with the City of Lomita for details.

     I would also like to remind you that the first bell rings at 8:16am and students are expected to line up at that time. Teachers come to the playground when the bell sounds and by the time the second bell rings, all students are in the classroom. Please leave your home a little earlier if your child is not getting to the line by 8:16 am since instructional minutes do start at 8:21 am. Thank you very much for your support and understanding.
