Here's what we know about plans for Los Angeles Unified schools on the first morning of a scheduled two-week closure of the nation's second-largest school district:

  • Principals will be on campus this morning to redirect families unaware of the closure.
  • Staff represented by the teacher's union “will not be penalized for taking time off for child care purposes."
  • Any teachers or non-school-based administrators will not be expected to report to work if they are over 60, pregnant, or have health conditions that increase their risk of a more serious COVID-19 case, or are ill.

The guidance is included in a memo sent over the weekend to staff. It also includes directions for a range other other positions in the massive district from custodians to food service workers and financial managers.
