Dear Summer School Families:

We will not be offering our Summer School program in 2014. Over the past year, our school's Buildings and Grounds Committee has been working on a comprehensive assessment of our physical campus. Through this process, it became clear that there is a need for improvements to our existing buildings. It has been decided to begin some of these projects in Summer 2014. Therefore we are unable to offer our Summer School program in the coming year. Some of our teachers will offer classes through the UCLA Center X Young Scholars Program. Please visit their website for more information.

Please know that the decision to cancel was a difficult one. Summer School is a much loved program and involves many children, parents, teachers and staff. However, the majority of the work that will be done will affect learning spaces in such a way that it will not be feasible to have children on campus.

This renovation is a huge step for our school. There hasn’t been work of this scale done on our older buildings since they were built 60 years ago. Our school facilities will be significantly improved, for the benefit of all children, teachers, staff and visitors who use these spaces.

Please know we will miss our students, families and fun experiences from the summer very much.

We wish everyone well this year, and we look forward to beginning our UCLA Lab School Summer Program once again in 2015.


Laurie Ramirez
Summer School Principal
