To Our Wonderful Fairfax Families,

As we approach Thanksgiving Day, we'd like to reflect on the many things for which we are thankful. In the spirit of the season, we would like to thank the LCS team - teachers and staff for their dedication to ensuring that our students have a nurturing environment in which they can learn and grow, particularly during this challenging year. We would like to thank our wonderful LCS families for their unending support and partnership that so enhances our school community. And last, but certainly not least, we're grateful for our amazing students who make this school come to life each day whether on Zoom or in-person.

We hope you have time to connect with those who are important to you and that you have a moment to reflect on the wonderful aspects of your lives. We wish you all a healthy and happy Thanksgiving holiday and we'll see you back on Zoom on Monday, November 30th.

Warmest regards,

Andi, Mersedeh, & the LCS Faculty and Staff


Upon our return from Thanksgiving break, we want to remind everyone that students are expected to attend all classes during the school day, including enrichment classes. We have noticed a decline in attendance during enrichment classes. Our enrichment program is a central part of the Whole Child Larchmont education and a key part of our overall instructional program, particularly because so much of what we teach is integrated across content areas. In addition, as mentioned at the beginning of this current school year, schools have been instructed to return to pre-COVID mandates regarding progress reports and progress monitoring. Students who are not attending classes will have that information reflected on their progress reports.

Please ensure that students are in attendance for the entire school day and for all classes during distance learning. Thank you for your support.

We have an exciting development on the tech front!

Larchmont has contracted with a tech firm called TechaBee. We have hired this firm to help support families and teachers by answering your tech-related questions, supporting your technology, and managing your devices. TechaBee is here to help with tech issues regarding Chromebooks, Zoom, technology apps, and much more! We have taken this action to be as responsive as we can as a school to your tech needs during this distance learning period. 

The help desk is available 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Monday through Friday. During COVID-19 families are also free to email the help desk at any time! 

Email all requests to techabee@larchmontcharter.org, CC belinda@techabee.com & terence@larchmontcharter.org

This email address (techabee@larchmontcharter.org) forwards straight to the TechaBee help desk so we can more quickly resolve your tech issue. Please be sure to cc Belinda and Terence so we can keep track of your tech request. 


Our Fairfax phone line is currently down, but we're continuing to work with the phone company to resolve the issue. In the meantime, if you need to reach the office during the school day between the hours of 9 am - 3 pm, please call the following number for assistance: 213-505-4711. Thank you, and we apologize for the inconvenience.


Teachers will be taking attendance every day in their live Zoom classes. On Wednesdays, the completed independent work will indicate that your child is present asynchronously and your child will be marked present accordingly. If your child is going to be absent (both synchronously and asynchronously) for any reason, please email your teacher and ffxattendance@larchmontcharter.org.

To receive credit for attending asynchronously (not live/zoom) students/parents must both:

  • Log into Seesaw or view the teacher's assignments via their websites to access and complete assignments AND

  • Complete the Distance Learning Attendance Certification Form

  • Please notify your teacher & email ffxattendance@larchmontcharter.org when you know your student cannot attend synchronously or asynchronously. 

Questions about attendance?  Email our office manager, Tess, at maritess.trillo@larchmontcharter.org.
