Off-Campus Lunch Privileges
La Cañada High School is a closed campus. However, the Governing Board, pursuant to Ed Code Section 44808.5, allows students to apply for a permit to leave school grounds during the 30-minute lunch period ONLY with parent permission. Parents must sign the Off Campus Lunch Permit Application linked here. Parents are encouraged to give this privilege serious consideration to ensure the child is responsible enough to handle her/his time wisely. Some parents save this privilege for the senior year. The Education Code states, “Neither the school district nor any officer or any employee thereof shall be liable for the conduct or safety of ay pupil during such time as the pupil left the school ground pursuant to this section.” Students who have parent permission to leave campus during lunch will have such privilege designated on their ASB/ID card. Students who leave campus without permission are subject to disciplinary action, including suspension. Students returning late from lunch four or more times may have their lunch and/or parking privileges revoked. Off-Campus Lunch Permits relate to the lunch period ONLY. Students in possession of an Off-Campus Lunch Permit are not permitted to leave campus during break or any other time.
