    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    As Superintendent Austin Beutner explained in his October 5, 2020 Letter to the School Community, Los Angeles Unified School District is offering free COVID-19 tests to all students.

    The virus testing program is now underway and it’s time for our school to be tested.

    We are asking parents to make an appointment for an initial test now to help us prepare for the opening of school for in-person instruction.  Although the date when schools will re-open for in-person instruction is not yet known, taking an initial test now will provide valuable information about the incidence of COVID-19 in the communities we serve.  This information will help the scientists, researchers and epidemiologists who are assisting with the program. The baseline testing will help reduce the spread of the disease by identifying those with the virus so they can be kept apart from others.

    Immediately prior to the reopening of schools, all students and staff who will be returning to schools, will be provided with a further, back-to-school, baseline test.

    Please schedule an appointment beginning on October 9th for your child at this link.

    You will need your child’s student ID number to schedule an appointment.  You may obtain your child’s student ID number by accessing the Parent Portal here or by calling our LAUSD hotline at 213-443-1300.  Once you’ve made the appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with details.  Please be prepared to show the email on your phone or print out the confirmation and bring it with you to the appointment.

    Thank you for  your participation on this important program.

    Mr. Merritt

    Estimados padres y tutores,

    Como explico el Superintendente Austin Beutner en su Carta a la Comunidad Escolar del 5 de octubre de 2020, el Distrito Escolar Unificado de Los Ángeles está ofreciendo pruebas de COVID-19 gratis a todos los estudiantes.

    El programa de pruebas del virus está ahora en marcha y es hora de que se hagan las pruebas en nuestra escuela.

    Les estamos pidiendo a los padres que hagan una cita para una prueba inicial ahora para que nos ayuden a prepararnos para la apertura de la escuela para la instrucción en persona.  Aunque todavía no se conoce la fecha en que las escuelas volverán a abrir para la instrucción en persona, hacerse una prueba inicial ahora proporcionará información valiosa sobre la incidencia de COVID-19 en las comunidades a las que servimos.  Esta información ayudará a los científicos, investigadores y epidemiólogos que están ayudando con el programa. Las pruebas iniciales ayudarán a reducir la propagación de la enfermedad al identificar a los que tienen el virus, para que puedan mantenerse separados de los demás.

    Inmediatamente antes de reabrir las escuelas, todos los estudiantes y el personal que regresarán a las escuelas recibirán una prueba de referencia adicional, para el regreso a la escuela.

    Por favor haga una cita para su hijo a partir del 9 de octubre en COVID testing appointment.

    Necesitará el número de identificación de estudiante de su hijo para hacer una cita.  Usted puede obtener el número de identificación de estudiante de su hijo accediendo al Portal para Padres en Portal para Padres o llamando a nuestra línea directa de LAUSD al 213-443-1300.  Una vez que haya hecho la cita, recibirá un correo electrónico de confirmación con los detalles.  Por favor, esté preparado para mostrar el correo electrónico en su teléfono o imprima la confirmación y tráigala a la cita.

    Gracias por su participación en este importante programa.

    Sr. Merritt

    "The public health crisis created by the coronavirus is not something any of us could reasonably have expected to happen, and we’re in uncharted waters as we work to prevent the spread of the illness. We have been following the guidance of public health experts on how we can keep all who are part of our school community -- students, staff, family members and visitors -- safe in the midst of a growing health crisis. We are now at a point where the balance has shifted and the appropriate path is to close schools. We are taking this step to keep our school communities safe. Effective Monday, March 16, we will close all Los Angeles Unified public schools for two weeks (March 16-27, 2020, with students returning on Monday, March 30, 2020) while we evaluate the appropriate path forward. While our school facilities will be closed, plans are in place for students to continue to learn during this time, and we will open 40 family resource centers to provide care for children if families need it.

    This is a difficult decision, but necessary, as we try to slow the spread of the virus. Los Angeles Unified serves a high-needs population, and our schools provide a social safety net for our children. The closing of any school has real consequences beyond the loss of instructional time. This is not an easy decision and not one we take lightly.

    Each student will have a plan which they will take home with them today and additional support will be provided to assist students as they transition to a different way of learning and teachers to a different way of teaching.

    For some students it will be continuing the lesson plan and instruction they have already been working on with their classroom teacher. For others it will be engaging with the curriculum and lessons which we and PBS SoCal will be providing. And for some, it will be a combination of the two.

    While our special education centers will also close, students and families will continue to have access to services from the regional centers they currently rely on.

    The Family Resource Centers will open on Wednesday, March 18 and will be staffed weekdays from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. with trained professionals. Children will be able to have a warm meal, engage with their peers and pursue their different studies. And they’ll be safe.

    We are developing a family resource guide that we will provide to you before Monday, to help answer your questions.

    I want to thank all on our staff who are working tirelessly to help our students and planning for them to remain connected to the school community. We know the adults on a school campus are an important part of a student’s life and will do our best to try and maintain that connection. All employees should rest assured knowing they will still be paid during this time, even if they are not directly involved in providing services to students.

    And to our families, we thank you for your patience and trust as we work together to maintain some sense of normalcy in these difficult times. These next two weeks will be difficult and we are not certain what lies ahead after that. You have my unwavering commitment to do all we can do to help you and your children.

    We will continue to do our best to keep you informed. Facts and circumstances may change quickly so we encourage you to check our website regularly, my Twitter @AustinLASchools or call the following phone hotlines."
