Beginning August 26 after 5 pm, the new way of finding out your child's class assignment is by viewing it online in Parent Vue. Therefore, if you have not done this, please make it a point to do so within the first few months of school. If you need help please see Claudia after the first 2 weeks of school as she'll be really busy the first 10 days.
None the less, as of August 29 you can also come in with your ID to find out your child's class assignment but you'll need a little patience as we'll have to verify emergency card information.
Middle School students will receive their schedules in the class assigned to them on the first day of school.
Enjoy these last days of summer vacation and be safe.
Mark your calendars and set your alarms. The new school year starts earlier . . . at the end of August.
First day of school is August 31.
Students who do not present themselves on the first day of school may be inactivated and lose their spot.
Gompers is proud to be a Uniform School: Red, White & Navy Blue polo shirts and Navy Blue or Khaki pants
Gompers Uniform Dress Code
Please keep in mind that the purpose of the uniform dress code at Gompers School is to present a professional and academic atmosphere for our students. Uniforms also promote a safer more secure campus. We believe the dress at Gompers reflects an attitude of self-respect and a commitment to a productive, safe and focused learning environment. Thank you for your support in helping our students be serious about school.
See back of this page for more dress code requirements
Dress Code for All Students
All students must adhere to LBUSD School Dress Standards as found in the Guidelines for Parents and Students, and our school policy.
We have a small variety of programs in place to assist economically disadvantaged students in obtaining uniforms. For information or to request assistance, please call the school office at (562) 925-2285.
If you have uniforms your child has outgrown, which are still in good condition, please consider donating them to our uniform loaner program. Donations of clean uniforms will be accepted in the school office.

Lakewood Deputy City Manager, Carol Flynn Jacoby reminds everyone of the Lakewood Municipal Code 3273 that forbids drivers from dropping off or picking up children (grades K-12) in any way that encourages them to jaywalk through traffic to get to or from school.
Double parking or stopping at the curb and waving children through traffic are both infractions of the code and are punishable by a substantial fine. The only safe way to drop off or pick up a child is at the curbside adjacent to the school or at a location near the school where the student can cross at a controlled intersection. Attached is a copy of the ordinance. Together, we can work to create a safe environment for our kids.
Please use the Valet Drop-off program that eliminates the need for drivers to get out of their vehicles and assist their passengers. It provides a quick and efficient process for getting children into school safely. This program provides a more controlled environment for dropping off children, resulting in increased confidence for both drivers and pedestrians.
Did you know that if you forget to return school books you will be held responsible for them up until you're due to graduate from high school. You will not be able to graduate or participate in senior events until they are returned or paid for.
Check with your teacher(s) for return date(s).
All middle school students are welcomed to tryout for sports throughout the year. Look for postings and/or listen to the morning announcements.
Students must have a minimum of a 2.0 GPA and can not have unsatisfactory conduct grades.
See attached schedule.
