I hope you are all enjoying a restful and safe winter break.
On Monday, December 28th, the LA County Department of Public Health released new guidelines mandating a 10-day quarantine for all individuals who have recently traveled outside of Los Angeles County.
This new health order would make it extremely difficult to appropriately staff our in-person programs when we return to school on January 4th. Additionally, there would be a high likelihood of having to navigate a multitude of quarantines involving students, staff, and entire classes, which would deeply impact the continuity of learning for our students.
Given this new requirement, coupled with the recent surge in COVID cases throughout our county, the District has made the decision to pause all in-person programs for the next two weeks.
As such, all in-person programs that have either returned or are in the process of returning to campus will return to/remain in a remote learning environment with a targeted return date of Tuesday, January 19th. This currently impacts all TK-2nd grade hybrid students and all Kids' Corner students.
Thank you for your continued flexibility and understanding. This was a difficult decision for our District, but we believe that it is in the best interest of all staff and students to return to school on January 4th in a remote learning environment.
I will continue to update you on all activities and targeted start dates related to the return to on-campus instruction for our Hybrid students over the next few weeks.
I look forward to a safe return to school once permitted and wish you all a Happy New Year!
