On behalf of the entire Knollwood Preparatory Academy community, I would like to welcome you to the 2018-2019 academic year!  I am honored to serve in the position as principal and I am looking forward to working with you to provide the best possible educational program for your child.  Our extraordinary teachers, dedicated support staff, and I are planning for a rewarding year filled with rich learning experiences for your child(ren).  Our focus is on building a strong partnership between staff, parents, and students to allow every child to flourish and reach his/her academic potential.  Together we will open the door to endless opportunities for all students in our school as they become college and workplace ready.

Principal's Message

Parent Student Handbook & Emergency Cards

You will be receiving the packet with the Parent Handbook, Emergency Card and much more within the first week of instruction.  The information in the packet answers many questions and helps you and your child start the year on the right foot.


Please make sure that there are at least 3 different phone numbers listed on your child(ren) emergency card.  This is imperative in an emergency.  On the first week, have your child give the form to their new teacher.  If you have different people whom you wish to be able to pick up your child(ren), make sure they are all listed on the emergency information sheet.  We will not release your child to anyone NOT listed; it is a safety issue.  If a phone number changes, please let us know immediately.  Additionally, you can access the form through the lausd.net homepage.  Once there, click on “Families”.  Then click on “forms and policies” for the Student Emergency Information form (available in multiple languages).  For those of you who have already enrolled students who will be attending Knollwood for their first year, you do not need to submit another emergency card.

YMCA Services

There is no supervision before 7:30 a.m.  Students Should Not Arrive on Campus Before 7:30 am.  If you must drop your child off before that time, you can enroll them in the YMCA. They provide supervision until the campus opens for students at 7:30 a.m. and until 6:30 p.m. after school.  Please contact their office at (818)832-4032 for specific information. Students who are registered and participating in this program must enter through the YMCA Barneston Gate before 7:30 a.m.
