LAPD Holds Virtual School Assembly
Campuses may be closed the rest of the school year, but school assemblies are still happening — virtually.
The Los Angeles Police and L.A. School Police hosted a Facebook stream Friday for kids. Police Chief Michel Moore introduced his colleagues and sought to offer the students reassurance during a scary time.
The speakers encouraged students to follow the LAPD's tips for keeping safe at home, including staying 6 feet from others when walking outside, washing your hands while singing the ABC song, and staying calm.
Here's School Police Sgt. Rudy Perez:
"I know at home sometimes it can be a little frustrating right now because we're all so close to each other, but we have to maintain calm. The police officers are out in the streets. The police officers are protecting our schools at this moment. We can't wait for you to come back to school, because we're going to be here to make sure you're OK."
