Northwest STARS: Students and families, Teachers, and Administrators Realizing Success!
  • Urgent Message Regarding Conditions Related to Wildfires

    From Joseph Nacorda, Superintendent of L.A. Unified Local District Northwest

    This is Local District NW Superintendent, Joseph Nacorda with an important message for our students, families and employees. I am happy to tell you that the schools in our Local District that were closed this week because of the wildfires will reopen on Monday, December 11. This decision is based on improved air quality and the lifting of mandatory evacuations that impacted our school communities.

    The safety of our students and employees is always our top priority. District crews will be working this weekend to install new air filters at the closed schools and ensure that facilities are ready for teaching and learning to resume. However, we may continue to limit outdoor activities until air quality returns to normal levels. Please visit for updated information and on-going resources for our students and families.

    We realize that this has been a trying time for our families and employees. We are very grateful for your cooperation and understanding and look forward to seeing you back at school again on Monday.
