Los Angeles Unified School District is officially set to reopen all campuses, stating they will reopen in a staggered fashion by the end of April.
Along with their reopening plans, the nation's second-largest school district also announced it is opening 25 school-based vaccination centers in “high-needs communities.”
In a news release, LAUSD states that this vaccination expansion effort was made possible through a partnership with the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor and Northeast Community Clinics. They both share the common goal of making sure families with children in schools receive access to vaccinations to help their children return to school in the safest way possible, the news release adds.
LAUSD adds that students will need to get a COVID-19 test prior to returning to campus.
Here is LAUSD's staggered timeline for the return to in-person learning:
- Kindergarten and first graders will return to school on April 13
- Second and third graders will return April 14
- and fourth and fifth graders will return April 15
- 61 elementary schools and 11 early education centers will open the week of April 12
- All remaining elementary schools will open the week of April 19
- Middle and high schools will return to campuses the week of April 26
