    Return to Campus Family Guide

    Guía para familias sobre el regreso al plantel escolar 


    We hope that you and your family are well and safe. With the continued decline of COVID-19 in the Los Angeles area, we are preparing to reopen our school in April. A Return to Campus Family Guide is now available, with detailed information to help you decide whether your child will return to school for the remainder of the semester or continue with online instruction. Please download the guide here or click on image above on any mobile or digital device, and read it carefully.  Check with your schools and join their town hall meeting to review these plans.

    In order to help us plan for the reopening of our school, we need to know how your child will participate in instruction. A Program Selection Form may be completed online here. Please complete this form for each child in your household. If we do not receive a response from you, we will plan to continue providing online-only instruction for your child. You will also have the option of changing how your child will participate in instruction every two weeks after schools reopen by contacting your school.

Update on Grab and Go Food Centers

  • LAUSD Logo

    Dear Family,

    After more than a year, we will reach an important step in the path to recovery when we start welcoming students back to school next week.

    The past 399 days will be remembered as a time of sacrifice and determination, but also of hope and optimism, as all of us at Los Angeles Unified worked to maintain a safety net for the communities we serve.

    We knew when we closed school campuses that hundreds of thousands of children counted on us for meals every day at school. In less than a week, Los Angeles Unified set up a food relief effort that has since provided children and adults with more than 122 million meals along with 26 million items of much-needed supplies.

    Behind each meal is a team of cafeteria workers, custodians, warehouse workers, truck drivers, school principals and staff and countless others without whom none of this would have been possible. Together, we provided meals to all who needed them without question because we knew it was the right thing to do. 

    Fortunately, Los Angeles Unified was joined in this effort by businesses, individuals and philanthropic organizations who understood the need. They contributed money and in-kind donations totaling almost $40 million to LA Students Most in Need, the charitable fund we created to help provide a safety net for the school community.

    This nation-leading effort is a great reminder of what can be accomplished when we all work together to help those in need.

    Now that students are returning to the classroom, we will be transitioning food service back to a school-based effort focused on children. Beginning the week of April 12th, students who return for in-person instruction will be provided multiple meals at school while students who continue with online learning from home can still pick up meals from their own school site. This will make certain every child can continue to receive meals from their local school.

    As schools open during the month, our Grab & Go Food Centers will close. April 9th will be the last day for 22 of the school-based food centers and the remaining 41 sites will close on April 16th.

    You will be receiving more detailed information from your school principal shortly, including available resources in the local community that can help those continuing to experience food insecurity.

    It has been our privilege to serve the community in this time of need. We will continue to do all we can to help the students and families in our schools.

    Student and Family Wellness Hotline


    As we work together to raise awareness about mental health, reduce stigma and discrimination related to mental illness, and prevent suicides, it is vitally important that we take care of ourselves. During this stressful time, we remind you all, to place an emphasis on your own self-care. Take time to breathe, meditate, exercise, get plenty of sleep, and take a break from the news and social media periodically. We encourage you to visit the EMM resource center where you will find self-care articles, graphics, and tips to share on social media.
