|An unannounced Required-3 year inspection was conducted on this date by Licensing Program Analyst (LPA) B. Emiko Bell. Upon arrival, LPA went into the Office and signed in and was guided (by pointing) to the pre-school classrooms by Darlene Quintana, an office staff from the Elementary School. P-4 is the only room licensed through CCL; it is located in a portable on the southwest side of the Temple Elementary School campus. The children share the playground with the T-K and Kindergarteners from the Elementary School. As there are no names associated to the license, all staff names are noted on the LIC 811 Confidential Names list.
