Q. My child will be starting at Chaparral in the Fall. What do I need to do?
A. If you are not registered yet, please contact the LVUSD office. For the 2020-2021 school year, a selection must be made for either the Virtual Academy, or On Campus (when safe to return). Please visit lvusdupdates.org for more information.  

You may also call or email the school office after August 4, 2020.

Q. Is there an on-site after-school program available?
A. The Dr. Richard Grossman Club is on-site and run through the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Conejo Valley. For more information, visit bgcconejo.org or contact the Club at (818) 224-3097 or clubchap@bgcconejo.org for further information.
Q. What is the PFC?
A. PFC stands for Parent Faculty Club. There is no membership fee and everyone is welcome. There are many ways for parents to be involved in the school (through classroom volunteering, special events, and fundraising), and the PFC helps to coordinate all these endeavors and more! Within the PFC, there are Executive Board and Event Coordinator positions (all held by volunteers). The PFC funds many technology purchases and capital improvements as well as field trips, assemblies, and art, music and PE classes.
PFC meetings are usually held the second Friday of each month at 8:15am in the MPR (Multi-Purpose Room). For now they will be on Zoom. All parents are encouraged to attend whenever they can. Meetings typically include an overview of past and upcoming events as well as a report from the principal on school events and developments.
Please go to the About section of this website for more information about the PFC.
Q. What is “Donor Drive” and why is it so important?
A. Donor Drive is the PFC’s biggest fundraiser, generating more than half of the needed funds for the entire school year. 100% of the money donated goes directly to our school. Click here for more details on Donor Drive and how it benefits your child.
Q. Why are Wednesdays short days? Why aren’t they called Minimum Days?
A. Wednesdays are school “banking” days. Teachers spend the remainder of the day meeting by grade level to collaborate and develop standards based curriculum.
Q. Why can’t I get my teacher assignment before registration?
A. Class assignments change throughout the summer due to late enrollments or changes in class sizes, so to ensure the most accurate information is provided to families, the administration provides teacher assignments on registration day.
Q. What is a Room Parent and how do I become one?
A. Room parents are the primary liaison between the teacher, class parents, and the PFC. Primary responsibilities include forwarding PFC Emails to your class, participating in and staffing your assigned weeks of Traffic Duty, working with your teacher to organize classroom parties and special projects and assisting with Staff Appreciation Week. Room Parent Volunteer forms are included among the registration paperwork, and the positions are assigned shortly after registration is completed in August. Even with Distance Learning we need Room Parents!
