Things are slowly returning to normal!

LAUSD has announced plans to fully reopen for in-person learning in the fall.

The second-largest school district in the nation made the announcement during a briefing Monday morning, outlining what the rest of the school year will look like.

The school district's Superintendent Austin Beutner said during the briefing that an online option must remain in place for the next school year for students who are unable to or chose not to participate in the school's in-person instruction.

LAUSD will have returning students on campus five days a week for a full day of instruction, which will mark the first time since March of last year that middle and high school students will change classrooms for each class period.

Also resuming are the after-school programs, staying available until the end of the school day around 6 p.m.

Beutner added that he expects students and staff will continue to wear masks until more children have been vaccinated.

The district is planning to offer vaccines at each middle and high school campus at least once before the school year ends on June 11 and again during the summer.
