Re-opening of Schools » Message from our Superintendent

Message from our Superintendent

July 20, 2020

 

Dear Little Lake Parents,

 

On Friday Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all school campuses to remain physically closed in counties on the state’s monitoring list due to spiking COVID-19 cases. This includes Los Angeles County. Schools cannot re-open until their county has come off the state’s monitoring list for 14 consecutive days.  Also on Friday, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health issued a new Health Officer Order stating that schools in Los Angeles County cannot resume in-person learning next month.


Therefore, this order will mean that all Little Lake City schools will begin the school year on August 19 with virtual learning. On Wednesday, July 22, The Board of Education will take formal action on this new mandate.  Little Lake City schools will provide virtual learning to our students throughout the first trimester of the school year.  Trimester I ends on Friday, November 13.

 

Throughout the first trimester we will closely monitor the COVID-19 data that is provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.  At the time when we are granted permission to safely open our schools we will then begin the process of moving to the hybrid model of learning.  It is my hope and desire to be back to full time face-to-face learning by the end of the 2020-2021 school year.

 

This has been an incredibly challenging time for the entire Little Lake community. I want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with this unprecedented situation. We will continue to keep you updated as we move forward with our re-opening plans.


Sincerely,

 

William Crean, Ed.D.

Superintendent
