Schools around Los Angeles and Orange counties have closed in an effort to prevent further spread of coronavirus.
As LAUSD officials pointed out, that wasn’t an easy decision, because many families depend on schools for meals, child care, and services for students with special needs.
“Our schools provide a social safety net for children,” schools Supt. Austin Beutner said at a Friday press conference. “The closing of any school has real consequences beyond the loss of instructional time.”
We are compiling this list of resources for families who may need help, and we will update as we hear more. In many cases, particularly when it comes to school districts, meals will only be given to individuals 18 or younger who are there in person.
