New Heights Charter School will implement 100% Distance Learning to start the 2020-21 school year, due to increased health risks in Los Angeles.
All students will log onto Zoom at 9:00 am on August 18th for a Welcome Meeting and to get directions for their daily/weekly schedule.
While Phase 1 of our reopening plan is now postponed due to county and state health guidelines, we will start Phase 1 when health conditions allow. Students choosing to engage in Option 1 will be given on-campus instruction 1 day a week.
AUGUST 3-6 PARENT 1:1 REGISTRATION SESSIONS will be held online on ZOOM.
Congratulations 8th Grade!
Congratulations 5th Grade!

New Heights Charter School is here to support you and your family during this COVID-19 school closure. LAUSD and New Heights Charter will remain closed for the rest of the school year, while we continue our educational programming through distance learning. As this health crisis continues, we will follow the guidance of the Department of Health, the state of California, and LAUSD. At this time, we are also planning for a Distance Learning Summer School. We will share our sign-up process in May.
We know that you are juggling many responsibilities while also having your children at home during this time. All important school information can be found on our website, www.newheightscharter.org. Also, please read the robo-texts we are sending to you with information related to our school closure. If you have not received a robo-call or text from us, please make sure you OPT-IN for robo calls and texts by texting YES to 87569.
Every child has been assigned a faculty or staff member to check-in with your child every day while we are closed. This “advisor” will be reaching out to you to make sure you are aware of where to find learning activities. All New Heights education programs will transition to distance learning beginning in full force on April 7th. Students can access most of the tech resources suggested below through our website: www.newheightscharter.org Additional links and resources can be found for each grade level on the website. Teachers may also send texts or emails to you with links for finding classwork for your children. We hope these resources help you continue a learning routine at home throughout the school closure.
