COVID-19 Student Testing
Parents/Guardians now have the opportunity to have their child tested for COVID-19 at an LAUSD testing center. While participation is not mandatory at this time, the District is strongly recommending it as information gained from these initial tests will provide valuable data for the medical and science experts who are working with the District to develop its plan for a safer return to in-person instruction. Please see the attached letter below on how to schedule a testing appointment.
