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.

Toyota Family Literacy Program

Together with the Long Beach School for Adults, McKinley Elementary, and King Elementary, we proud to be a part of the Toyota Family Literacy Program.  This program provides our Spanish speaking parents with a tremendous opportunity to participate in their child's education while developing their own English literacy skills.

The three key components to this program include:

  • Adult ESL (4 hours per week)
  • PACT (Parent and Child Time) - working side by side with the student in the classroom (2 hours per week)
  • Parenting Time (2 hours per week)

The results of this program are very exciting!  We see improved attendance, achievement and motivation from the children.  The parents have become more involved in the events on campus and are more comfortable in the classrooms and helping their children at home.

Thanks to Toyota and the National Center for Family Literacy for selecting Chavez and the Long Beach Unified School District to be a part of this amazing program!
