A presentation was made to the LAUSD School Board on Reopening. Families responded that 35% wanted students to attend school on campus full time. 37% requested a blended approach, whereas 28% wanted to remain online. However, only 44% of staff were willing to return to campus.
LAUSD is surveying parents to find out what their preferences are regarding reopening schools in the fall: remote learning, on campus full time, hybrid and the details surrounding all that.
Beginning Friday, June 12 the following are permitted to reopen/resume: gyms and fitness centers, museums, galleries, hotels for leisure, day camps and their pools, film, TV and music production, stadiums and arenas (without spectators)
Restaurants, barber shops, and hair salons may now choose to reopen, but under specific guidelines. For example, hair salons and barber shops may only serve one client at a time, and everyone must wear a face covering. Nail salons and businesses providing spa or massage services, or other “close-contact services,” remain closed. Restaurants may operate at 60% capacity, but their bar areas remain closed.
