I.            INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM

1.                  Will LLCSD schools reopen in the fall?  

As of now, we are planning on the two models including in person instruction.  We are in close contact with the LA County Department of Health and will take our guidance from them. If things change and we need to return to 100% Distance Learning, we will update parents accordingly. Please note that based on the status of COVID-19 at the time of reopening and the recommendations from the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, the LLCSD Virtual Learning Academy may be the only option offered to all students. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed.
