Every weekday afternoon, children play behind Valerio Street Elementary School in Van Nuys, running along, darting across and throwing rocks over the railroad tracks, said parent Vaneza Vera, who walks her 7-year-old son home. Although she is concerned for the youngsters' safety, she cannot be every child's parent, she said. "They are not going straight to [their homes], looking both [ways] or listening for the train," Vera said. "It's very dangerous and very unsafe.

Michelle Rojas smiled widely as she slid back in the dentist's chair Friday, showing no fear as USC dental student Bill Contente prodded. But Michelle's smile revealed her whites were less than pearly. How many cavities? "I guess I have three," said the 9-year-old, who had never before visited a dentist.

The school, which opened in 1963 and became a model for women's education, was unable to raise enough money to continue offering classes, Executive Director Laura Selwyn said Saturday. Last summer, the school's board of directors announced it would close in November unless sufficient money could be raised to cover an $80,000 deficit.

The financially strapped West Covina school district may close one of its two high schools and up to four other schools in an effort to cut expenses. District officials said that some schools are under-utilized and that by consolidating operations, they can offer a greater variety of courses. The district has been seeking ways to cut costs since it was forced to borrow $3.3 million from the state to cover a $2.7-million deficit in the 1987-88 school year and to cover operating expenses.

Nearly a year after the failure of a $100-million bond measure aimed at rebuilding and renovating Burbank's public schools, school board members say they are considering a less expensive option for voters to consider in 1996. The idea for a $30-million bond measure came from a committee of Burbank residents and met with strong approval Thursday from board members, who acknowledged they must work harder to find other potential sources of revenues.

Rob Newbill wanted to help schools out of a bind. So he dropped off a heap of three-ring binders at San Fernando Elementary School on Friday, thousands of them that made a pile 40 feet long, 4 feet high and 4 feet deep. In a scene reminiscent of a stampede in a toy store, each of the school's 1,100 students got to pick out one binder. Beginning at 8:30 a.m. with teacher Madeline Johnson's third graders, one class at a time was allowed to pick through the pile for about five minutes.
