The library is closed throughout the summer session.  We kindly ask students and parents to make other arrangements for all studying, photocopying, meeting/waiting, and researching needs.


Loyola High School is a closed campus during regular summer school hours. In order to ensure a safe and secure learning environment for our student body all parents, visitors, and guests are required to check in and be issued a visitor’s pass before entering the main grounds of campus. Due to safety and security reasons, Loyola’s security personal will not issue visitors’ passes to anyone wishing to pick up students at regular dismissal times. Anyone wishing to pick up students should wait outside the gates to the main campus. The main areas we hope you use for meeting your children at dismissal are: the main parking lot behind the school (Dewey Lot), the east gate at Malloy Commons, or the circular drive at the front of the school (Hayden Circle). For those choosing to remain in their vehicles, please use the drive-through drop-off/pick-up zone on 15th Street or any unreserved parking space in the Dewey Lot. If you have any questions regarding these procedures, please see security at any of the entrances to campus.


You will not be allowed to use the circular drive in front of Loyola between 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Students are not permitted to meet their drivers on Venice Boulevard.

In order to promote safety and efficiency for our students who are being dropped off and for parents who are dropping off before school or picking up after school, we would like you to review and practice the following procedures.

Morning drop-off:
All vehicles that are dropping off students should enter one of two main drop-off locations. 1.) Via Dewey Avenue by way of Pico Boulevard, enter the Dewey Parking Lot. Vehicles that will be parking to drop off can park in any unreserved parking space. Vehicles that are dropping off on 15th Street should follow the directions of security as follows: Pull forward to either the north or south white curb. Vehicles may not drop off along the main aisle or block the driveway. Students need to exit the vehicle on the curb side to avoid passing vehicles. Students must use the sidewalk and may not cross the street/jaywalk when entering the campus. Students need to be prompt when exiting the vehicle and getting their school supplies. 2. Via Berendo Street by way of Venice Boulevard, pull into the Gym Parking Lot. Drop off behind the bleachers or in any unreserved space.

Avoid dropping off on Venice Boulevard; please use our drop-off zones. In the event you must drop off on Venice Blvd., you may not drop off in the red zone or block the driveway. Students need to exit the vehicle on the curb side to avoid passing vehicles. When crossing, students must use the pedestrian crosswalk with the light. Additionally, the front circular drive on Venice is not available for drop off.

After-school pickup:
All vehicles that are picking up students should enter the campus via Dewey Avenue by way of Pico Boulevard in order to enter the Dewey Parking Lot. Vehicles that are picking up should follow the directions of security to 15th Street and pull to either the north or south white curb and forward to the next available spot. The students must enter the car on the curb side to avoid passing vehicles. The aisles along the marked reserved spaces inside the parking lot may be used as an overflow pickup area. Make sure to pull forward and to the far right or far left to make a center lane for exiting. Vehicles may not pick up along the main aisle or block the driveway. No-stopping areas are clearly marked and coned off; please do not pick up in these areas.

There is a considerable safety concern for students being picked up on Venice Blvd. Traffic moves fast and cannot always avoid vehicles that are slowing and/or pulling to the curb. You may not pick up in the red zone or block the driveway. Additionally, the front circular drive on Venice is not available for pick up.

These procedures may change for various reasons when necessary and are not meant to supersede California Vehicle Code or common sense. These procedures are meant to serve everyone’s best interest during peak drop-off or pickup time. The posted speed limit is 5 mph on campus. In all instances it is best to follow the instructions of security personnel.

Uber or other drive share apps:
If your son or daughter is using Uber or any other drive share app, all drop-offs and/or pickups should be done via Dewey Avenue by way of Pico Boulevard in order to enter the Dewey parking lot. The address to accommodate this is 1499 S. Dewey Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90006.


On the online registration form, we will ask the parents to provide emergency/disaster information with a number of options available for the release of their son or daughter after an emergency or disaster. The information provided will greatly increase our ability to quickly and to safely dismiss the students when we are confronted by an emergency situation. We ask parents to consider carefully the choices and to discuss those choices with your son or daughter, as we will act according to the instructions provided.

Parents, faculty, and staff will be notified in the event of an emergency or unplanned event that would be threatening to the safe commute of our students and faculty and/or causes early dismissal, school cancellation, or a late start. Classes would not resume until such time as the Loyola High School administration decides that it is reasonably safe for commuting to the campus and attending classes.


For those students who are driving to Loyola, free parking is available in three student lots. Students may access these lots from Berendo Street via Venice Boulevard, 15th Street, or Dewey Avenue.

Do not park in the following areas reserved for faculty and staff between 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on school days: Anywhere in the circular drive in front of Loyola; in the gym parking lot, in spaces specifically reserved for faculty (numbered 1-18). In the 15th Street parking lot, please do not park in spaces reserved for school officials (Assistant Principals, Dean, Athletic Trainer, and Director of Buildings and Grounds) marked reserved. Also, there is no parking in the reserved faculty spaces (numbered 1-70). DRIVE SAFELY AT ALL TIMES!

Hours of gate operation: The Dewey/Pico gate is open from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.   Monday-Friday.  The Catalina/15th Street Gate is open from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Monday-Friday.  The Berendo/Venice gate is open from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Monday-Friday.


Full-time security personnel are on duty from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day of summer session.  All students should be picked up by 4:00 p.m.


MTA bus service is available.  Please check with MTA for bus service near the Loyola campus.


Loyola’s food services caterer, Zlicious, will have hot and cold food to purchase each day between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. There are also microwaves available outside the student center for students who bring their own snacks or lunches. No gum chewing is allowed on campus.  No food or beverages are allowed in the classrooms or school buildings.


Loyola High School is very proud of the positive activities, honors and achievements of our students. Student photographs/video images may be taken for use such as school newspapers and newsletters, school websites or broadcasts (with the understanding that the child's full name will not be published on the internet when an image is posted), and/or publications for Loyola High School advertising for the purpose of showcasing the accomplishments of our students and/or promoting our summer session. During the summer session, there may be situations where your child is photographed/videoed. We understand, however that some parents may have objections to this.

If you do NOT want your child to be photographed/videoed, please notify us by emailing and we will contact you to complete an Opt Out form.
