Welcome to the Home of the Panthers
Welcome to the home of the Merced Elementary School Panthers! We are one of eight elementary schools in the West Covina Unified School District located in the beautiful San Gabriel Valley of southern California. We are proud to be a National Blue Ribbon School, which is largely due to the tremendous effort of our talented and dedicated staff. We know how important these first years of school are for your child, and you can be assured that we do everything possible to help him/her succeed.
Take some time to become familiar with our new website, and see for yourself how simple it is to find answers to your questions, whether it be about the lunch program, our enrichment activities , or how to contact a staff member. We consider you to be an important part of our educational team, and we encourage you to get involved.
We Are the Panthers....the Mighty, Mighty Panthers!

The West Covina Unified School District is committed to providing a safe school environment where all individuals in education are afforded equal access and opportunities. The District’s academic and other educational support programs, services and activities shall be free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying of any individual based on the person’s actual race, color, ancestry, national origin, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, or gender expression; the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. Specifically, state law prohibits discrimination on the basis of gender in enrollment, counseling, and the availability of physical education, athletic activities, and sports. Transgender students shall be permitted to participate in gender-segregated school programs and activities (e.g., athletic teams, sports competitions, and field trips) and to use facilities consistent with their gender identity. The District assures that lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission or participation in District programs.
