Returning Permit Students for 2017-2018:  If your child is already attending an ESUSD school and continues to meet eligibility criteria while on a permit, there are no requirements to reapply to your home district for a release with the following exceptions -- if your student is moving from 8th to 9th grade and your home district is Lawndale, Lennox or Hawthorne, you need to apply for a permit release from the Centinela Valley Union High School District. Current ESMS students in good standing will receive a letter of acceptance in late February or early March to include with the permit release application.
