    textbooks & devices
    • RETURNING MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS - You may keep your devices but we will need you to return your hardcover textbooks. As a rule of thumb, if the textbook has an LAUSD barcode, it needs to be returned. If the textbook has a soft cover, you may keep it. In addition, if you have anything with a Carlson barcode, it will need to be returned to the office.  You can find barcodes on the spine, the inside cover, or the back cover.
    • RETURNING ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS - You may keep your devices and you do not need to return any books.  If your teacher from last year left materials with you, s/he will contact you if they need it returned.
    • NEW STUDENTS - You will let your new teacher know what devices you need.  Teachers will know what textbooks to give you.
    • ALL FORMER STUDENTS - If you are returning to your home school, you MUST return all Carlson devices (including hotspots and Chromebooks) and hardcover textbooks with an LAUSD barcode or other materials with a Carlson barcode.  You will be issued textbooks and devices at your home school.

    You may drop off textbooks and/or devices in the designated boxes outside of the Carlson Parent Center (Look for the orange car.) starting Monday, August 10th from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM until Friday, August 14th.

    If you CANNOT return materials during these scheduled dates and times, please email our Dean at to make alternate arrangements.

    About Carlson

    Carlson Home Hospital School provides temporary instructional services for any LAUSD student in grades TK-12* who are unable to attend their home school due to medical or psychiatric issues. Face-to-Face teachers provide five hours of instruction each week in two core subject areas, typically English Language Arts and Mathematics. Eligible secondary students at Carlson have the opportunity to participate in the innovative Carlson Home Online Academy (CHOA) which offers real-time instruction, up to five, sometimes six courses each day, from a live teacher in a virtual classroom setting with other students. To enroll, you must complete and submit the appropriate Home Medical, Hospital Medical, or Psychiatric Referral to Carlson Home Hospital School and can obtain one by asking in the office at your child’s home school or by calling the Carlson office.

    *Preschool-aged students with disabilities are served by the LAUSD Early Childhood Special Education Program rather than Carlson. 

    For information regarding LAUSD Home Hospital instruction for preschool-aged students with disabilities please, contact Early Childhood Special Education at 213-241-4713.
