Greetings, Seaside Dolphins!


On the third Monday of every January, we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s achievements.  In observance, we will not have school tomorrow, Monday, January 16.


Dr. King was the primary spokesperson for nonviolent activism in the civil rights movement to end racial segregation.  Indeed, he was the most influential African American civil rights leader in the 1960s and played a critical role in the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.  The Act outlawed discrimination in public accommodations, facilities, and employment.  He also played a key role in passing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace in 1964.  Dr. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968.  We are grateful for his impact in opening the hearts and minds of our citizens.  Let’s celebrate his life by practicing inclusion and acceptance of all!

Dear Parents and Students:

The Torrance Police Department cares about your safety. Traffic is a concern of schools nationwide,
particularly as parents pick up and drop off their children. Our goal is to make this process flow in a safe
and smooth manner. We can do it with your help. Please obey all traffic laws and parking restrictions!

To improve the situation, beginning in the 2006-07 school year, we started using video cameras to record
violations near our schools. The cameras will continue to be used for the 2015-16 school year. Citations will be
mailed to the registered owner of the vehicle. You don't want to become a star on our camera! Instead, help us
out by NOT picking up or dropping off in the following areas:

  • Driveways
  • Red Zones
  • No Stopping Zones
  • Double Parking
  • Crosswalks / Intersections
  • Handicapped Spaces

By following the suggestions above, we can work together to provide a safe environment for students while
avoiding citations. If you have any questions, please call us at (310) 618-5557. Remember, wear your seatbelt,
have a safe school year, and don't become a star on our camera!
