In September 2021, Larchmont Charter School’s Board of Directors adopted a COVID19 vaccination mandate for students and staff. The mandate took effect 12/1 and called for all students 12+ and all staff to be fully vaccinated with limited exemptions not to exceed 10% of the population to be honored with medical exemptions given preference. Larchmont is proud to report that 96% of staff and more than 90% of eligible students are fully vaccinated.
Larchmont Charter is committed to providing accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on our campuses, while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for our students and staff. This data will be updated regularly and as cases are confirmed.
Larchmont Charter School abides by LACDPH public health requirements and LAUSD policies where/when applicable. As such the policies and procedures listed here are updated periodically in keeping with updates from LACPDH.

Larchmont Charter School is pleased to announce our partnership with School-Pass to simplify the ease of communicating your child’s required daily health screening along with their arrival and dismissal plans. An added benefit is that there is also a School-Pass app that allows LCS parents to use their smartphones to quickly communicate changes to the teachers and the office staff. Parents will still need to sign their child in and out of the school office for late arrivals and early dismissals.
Once the account has been created, the parent will be able to add other parents as well as other persons authorized to pick up your child. Please look for this activation email. If you do not receive it, contact your school office. After you have created your account, you can download the School-Pass app on your smartphone. If you have any questions about School-Pass, you’ll see that there is contact information in the activation email.
