Parent/Student Handbook

Note: A title followed by an asterisk (*) indicates language that is consistent across all LUSD school sites.

Dear Ophir Families,

On behalf of the Ophir staff, we want to welcome you to Ophir STEAM Academy! At Ophir S.T.E.A.M Academy, we believe in the traditions that foster a safe, inclusive environment for all students. We also believe that education is a joint effort between school, student, home, and community. Our school takes great pride in working alongside students and families to maintain a positive school culture that allows our students to develop socially, emotionally, and academically.

The Ophir Student Handbook provides an overview of our policies, programs and procedures. Please refer to the tabs on the left sidebar to review all sections of the handbook with your student(s). You will acknowledge that you and your student(s) have reviewed the handbook when you complete your "Parent Data Confirmation Process" through the Parent Portal.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions or are in need of support. Feel free to stop in, send me an email or make an appointment by calling our front office. We look forward to working together to make this another positive and successful school year.
