Elsinore High School

Welcome students and parents! I have been teaching at Elsinore High School since 2008, and I love this place! 
Communication is very important to me. If at any time you would like to contact me with your concerns or comments, please feel free to do so. The best way to reach me is via district email: crystal.hofmann@leusd.k12.ca.us.

Online grading is done through Infinite Campus. You will want to download the Infinite Campus app to get immediate information regarding student attendance and grades. The website is: ic.leusd.k12.ca.us/campus/portal/lakeElsinore.jsp.
The access code for the app is: ZLLXZJ
Absent? Check the shared calendar I sent to you on Office365. My daily DOL is here: www.hofmanndol.weebly.com
