With the 4th of July holiday fast approaching, the Long Beach Fire and Police Departments would like to remind residents, visitors, and staff that all fireworks, including those marked “Safe and Sane,” are ILLEGAL in the City of Long Beach. 

The Fire and Police Departments will be out in force the days leading up to and on July 4th to ensure compliance of the Long Beach City Ordinance that bans fireworks. Although both Departments seek voluntary compliance to ensure public safety, this duty often requires strict enforcement of all laws through arrests and citations. Anyone cited or arrested for fireworks violations may be faced with a $1,000 fine, sentenced to jail for six months, or both. The fines and penalties may increase depending on the fireworks’ classification. 

Fireworks may be voluntarily disposed at collection bins located at:

  • All fire stations
  • Lifeguard Headquarters 2100 E. Ocean Boulevard, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Any police station

For more information, alerts, advisories, and emergency news please visit www.longbeach.gov/fire, "Like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, or contact LBFD Community Services at (562) 570-2525. 

If you See Something, Say Something! Call Long Beach Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 or 9-1-1 if you observe dangerous or illegal activities.


Together, we can enjoy a safe holiday!

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.


Our School

Welcome to Chavez!

Cesar Chavez Elementary School opened in September 2004. The two-story school is built on 2.5 acres near the intersection of Broadway Street and Golden Avenue. It offers 65,000 square feet of facilities, including gleaming , energy efficient classrooms, a workroom between every two classrooms, and a large gymnasium that is part of an innovative joint-use agreement with the neighboring Cesar Chavez Park.

Chavez Elementary School was named after one of America's greatest modern heroes. Cesar E.Chavez, the American labor and civil rights leader, revolutionized the way owners worked with farm workers,  He also made sure that workers were given the proper tools to be more efficient and avoid disabilities. Chavez initiated union health benefits and implemented a credit union for farm workers.

The founding principal, Susan Rivard, stated in the dedication program, "We are proud to be named after Cesar E. Chavez, a man who persevered for what is right; he is our inspiration; we emulate and teach his core values, especially the values of equity, determination, knowledge and acceptance and responsibility to one another. These are our guides in our pursuit of excellence for ourselves and our students."
