Letter from Torrance Unified School District

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As many of you already know, in the past several weeks, there has been increased reports of individuals dressing up as clowns and creating disturbances nationwide. Many of these incidents have occurred in and around public areas, including parks and schools. There is heightened anxiety and fear over clown sightings due to several incidents being reported of a disturbing nature.

Though nothing has been reported in our District, in light of these recent reports, clown costumes WILL NOT BE ALLOWED at any TUSD school site during the Halloween season. This rule ensures everyone (students, staff, and parents) is able to fully enjoy the holiday festivities.

Additionally, this allows us to easily identify any individual attempting to come on to our campuses to create an unsafe environment. Staff, security, and law enforcement, will be able to quickly identify anyone in a clown costume, and immediately know they do not belong. Such individuals will be dealt with accordingly.

If you have any questions, please speak with your student’s principal. It is always our goal to ensure the safety of our students, staff, and school community. We appreciate your cooperation, efforts, and support in helping us keep our students and schools safe.


Late Start - Every Tuesday

The campus will not be open until 9am on Tuesdays. The first bell rings at 9:20am and first period begins at 9:23am. There is supervision in the cafe from 7:45 to 9am.

Message from the Principal

Dear 7th grade families,

We are rapidly approaching the beginning of the 2016-17 school year.  If you have been by Casimir, you will find that we are not on campus due to construction.  We are confident that school will be ready for your child/children on September 8th, the first day of school.

Registration packet pickup will be this Friday, August 26th in the Casimir cafe.  In order to get a registration packet, you will need to bring the enrollment card that was mailed to the home address we have on file.  You will not be able to pick up a packet without the card. 

Registration day will be September 1st in the cafe as well.  

Thank you in advance for your patience with the process as we will be working in a limited space. 

Please email me if you have questions.

Susie Holmes
Casimir Middle School
