  • Return to Campus Family Guide

    The Los Angeles Unified is pleased to share this Return to Campus Family Guide. It has in it much of the information you’ll need to make the decision about whether your child will return to school for the remainder of the semester or continue with online instruction. Once you have a full understanding of the choices, we ask you to let us know whether your child will return to the classroom or complete the semester online. Schools will need that information to finalize plans to make sure every student gets the best possible education. You may complete the questionnaire online at reopening.lausd.net/familyselection.
