Dear Families and Staff,
As many of you have heard, the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) schools are closed today due to an isolated threat, specific to that area. Be assured that all of our LVJUSD schools are open today and we have confirmed with local and federal authorities that there is no threat to our area schools. All schools in our District will continue as scheduled.
As always, we are in regular communication with our partners in local law enforcement and our administrators and staff are well-trained and vigilant. We know how concerning this is and want to reaffirm our Board and District commitment to ensure our students and staff are safe while in our care.

Emergency Contact Information
- During an emergency, please do not call the school or district office. If the phone lines are working, they are to be used only for emergency communication.
- Ensure that your child's emergency information is up to date with correct and current home and work phone numbers including a list of individuals allowed to pick up your child. To update your information, contact the school office.
- In a non-emergency situation, if you have questions about potential emergencies or preparedness, call your child's school office. You can also call the district at (925) 606-3200.
Emergency and General Announcements
The Livermore School district uses a phone-based communications system to rapidly alert parents with important information and has the capacity to reach all families in a given school, or the entire district, within five to 10 minutes from the time the first call is placed.
While the system is instrumental in alerting parents to an emergency situation on campus, it is also used for general non-emergency announcements such as an upcoming open house, report card mailing information, picture day reminders, and the statewide testing schedule. Traditional means of communicating with parents is continuing as before. However, this automated system ensures that the district can reach every family in a timely and organized manner.
We will continue to make every effort to communicate the status of emergency plans to parents and the community. Our number one priority is always the safety and security of students.
