District News and Resources


Dear Paramount Unified School District Families and Friends,


We have learned that our Paramount High School ASB advisor was one of the many victims shot last night in the mass shooting in Las Vegas.  She is in critical condition.  Please keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.


Counselors will be available on high school campuses to provide support for students and staff.


We are living in difficult times, where large violent acts have become much more prevalent.  While we stand together to support our PHS teacher, other members of our Paramount community may also know people who attended the concert and who may be witnesses or a victims. Please know that we are all working together to ensure our students and families are safe and to provide the emotional support needed to get us all through this moment. 


If you have questions or need information regarding your student and support, please contact the Superintendent's office at 562-602-6011 and we will provide crisis counselors and support at any school.


Thank you.



Dr. Ruth Perez, Superintendent
