Zion Lutheran Schools Board values your family. We want to make sure we are preparing our students for the future and meeting your expectations in your students learning process. We want to find out what you believe is important in the education of your child as well as what Zion Lutheran School can do to provide for your child in the future.

A survey will be sent out tomorrow Thursday, May 21st , please take a few minutes to give us your feedback and complete the survey. Responses will be kept anonymous. 

  • We pray that the Lord of all will bring healing to those who are sick, comfort to those who mourn, and an end to the spread of this virus.
  • Prayers for strength to all who are on the front line of this pandemic
  • Prayers to our Zion families
End of the Year

We are scheduling times for parents/students to stop by the classrooms to pick up items in desks or lockers and other belongings and to drop off any textbooks, library books or computers belonging to the school. To be sure we follow the social distancing guidelines we will need parents to schedule a date and time. Parents and students must wear face masks and gloves while on campus.
The MyHopeRock campaign aims to use simple painted rocks and the caring hands of Lutheran school students and church members to spark a movement in Orange County California.

Zion's School Office is closed but our dedicated team is still working and available to you.

ECEC Distance Learning

Distance Learning is continuing ... This is provided for free to all our ECEC students who would like to participate. The teachers have been missing your child/ren and are eager to have some face-to-face time with them. Please be patient as we are all new at this and I am sure many areas will need tweaking.
