We’re excited to be welcoming back students at the start of the new year! Due to the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, new protective measures have been issued for all LAUSD sites.

All Head Start staff and children – regardless of vaccination status – who will be returning to a LAUSD site will need to comply with the LAUSD Covid testing requirements. Our preparations for the new school year include continuing to require masking for all students, staff, and visitors; physical distancing; and comprehensive sanitizing efforts, including frequent hand washing.

For the latest information on school-based vaccination sites, please visit: https://achieve.lausd.net/covidvaccineappt.

If you have any additional questions, please contact your Head Start Center Director.
