Safe Steps to Get Ready
For many students and families, a full day of in-person learning will be a big change from the last school year. We strongly encourage parents to take the following steps to get ready to come back to campus:
1. Vaccinations for all eligible family members. Vaccinations have been proven safe and effective for anyone age 12 and older. Vaccines are an important part of protecting yourself and others. We hope eligible students and families can take advantage of our vaccination programs across LA Unified. Students and staff who upload a proof of vaccination on Daily Pass before August 13th will not have to participate in baseline or ongoing COVID testing.
2. Unvaccinated students and staff must participate in a baseline COVID test within the two weeks before August 16th. Your principal will let you know how to access a free testing site near you.
3. Enroll in and update your contact information in the Parent Portal. This is a great tool for parents and guardians to get in touch with their principal, see their child’s grades, and access a number of other resources! You can reach out to your local school or Community of School Office for support on signing up.
4. Practice new routines. Routines like getting up and getting dressed on time, wearing their mask for a prolonged period of time, eating on a regular schedule, and getting comfortable around other adults and children are all important parts of the transition back.
