Office is Open from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Greetings Panther Community.  Our office is open for in person support if needed.  We are available for 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Parents & Guardians : Please take a moment to fill out the device and connectivity forms on Parent Portal

Dear Parents/Guardians,

To help support your child’s computing device and internet connectivity needs this year, please take a moment to visit https://device.lausd.net  and answer a few questions. The same form also allows you to provide consent for computing devices checked out to your child (only one form is needed for all children you have enrolled in an LAUSD school).


We understand that many of you filled out the paper version last week that came home with your students; however, LAUSD is requiring all students have parent/guardian consent via Parent Portal. Attached is a step by step guide for anyone who may need additional help.


We need these forms filled out before we can issue your student a device.

For more information, contact your child’s school or visit https://achieve.lausd.net/connect. Looking forward to partnering with you for a great 2021-22 school year!



Thank you.

Welcome Yorkdale Parents & Students!

Yorkdale Elementary School: A Great Place to Start! 


Recipient of the 2020 California Distinguished School Award!


Welcome to the 21st century one-room schoolhouse. Just like in great days past, we are bringing back the small schoolhouse feel, where every adult knows your child, and everyone in the village works together.


Yorkdale is a public elementary school located in the heart of historic Highland Park, where we ensure your child is prepared for college and a rewarding career. Yorkdale provides a rigorous learning environment, and equips each child with encouragement, enthusiasm, and high standards.


We hope this website communicates our desire to be open, and encourages you to visit our school and get involved. Enjoy your time at the hidden jewel of Highland Park!
