The Los Angeles Unified School District will keep schools closed until at least May 1, Superintendent Austin Beutner announced in a tweet this morning.

Schools were shutdown on March 16. The district had initially announced that schools would stay closed for two weeks from that date.

"I wish I could tell you it will all be back to normal sometime soon but it does not look like that will be the case," Beutner said in his tweeted message.

Beutner said further details will be released at 11 a.m. The announcement will be streamed live on the district's website.
