I’m a new parent. How can I make sure I’m in the loop?
Make sure you’re signed up to receive our email newsletter. Newsletter sign-up here. Come to a Friends of King meeting if you can.

When is the next meeting of Friends of King?
Our meetings are on the second Tuesday of every month @ 6:00 pm and will be posted on our calendar.  If there are any changes to that time, you will be notified both on this website and in Constant Contact. Please plan on joining us! Your thoughts, ideas and volunteering are important to us!

When is the first day of school in the fall?
First day of Instruction for 2015-2016 school year is Tuesday, August 18th. 

How do I get to school?  

If possible, don’t drive! Too many vehicles coming to school at once creates a dangerous situation for the hundreds of students who do walk. Consider choosing a drop-off point a few blocks from school, taking transit, or walking or biking to school.

HOT TIP: There are some GREAT places that open early where you can meet up with friends, and for parents to get coffee or breakfast near TS King.  To name just a few:

  • MIXED Co. at Hyperion & Sunset.
  • 7-11 on Virgil & Santa Monica
  • Lyric Theater Cafe at Hyperion & Lyric.
  • Cafe Vita on Sunset Drive & Hillhurst.
  • Dinosaur Coffee on Sunset Blvd. at Sunset Junction.
  • and at 8AM, you will beat the line at Sqirl!
