We just learned from the El Segundo Police Department that Douglas St. is being closed down in the North to South direction due to a suspicious explosive device at the LA Times building, located at 2300 E. Imperial Highway.
Our students are safe and are not in danger.
Pick-up procedures will be altered this afternoon due to the partial Douglas closure. Pick up will be permitted by driving North on Douglas St. and turning left into our parking lot.
Please exercise patience during pick-up. Thank you.
Your feedback is important to us as we continuously look to improve our schools.
