COVID-19 Response & School Reopening

At LILA, we are eager and ready to reopen once K – 12 schools in LA County receive clearance to hold in-person classes. Currently, LA County has still not managed to bring COVID-19 cases down to a threshold that would allow schools to reopen.

School resumed on Wednesday, August 26. We are holding in-person classes for preschool and Pre-K to accommodate our youngest students. Students in K – 12th grade have begun the year via remote e-Learning. This webpage will serve as your information hub regarding reopening timelines and protocols.

Latest Head of School Communications/Updates

Dear LILA LA Community,

It was lovely to reconnect with so many of you last night during our first Head of School briefing following the October break.

As mentioned during the meeting, LA County remains in the Widespread (purple) category in the State Reopening Framework. As it stands, Tuesday, November 10 is now the earliest date by which we could have confirmation of our ability to reopen for in-person K-12 learning.

In view of this, we have decided to move forward with waiver applications for Kindergarten – 2nd grade for our Los Feliz, Pasadena, and West Valley campuses. This process should take 2-3 weeks. We will keep our K-2 families apprised of any progress toward a potential K-2 waiver approval for their respective campus.

Until next week, a friendly reminder that our COVID-19 Response & School Reopening page provides convenient access to all Weekly Wednesday Updates, our health & safety measures and reopening protocols, and more.

Warm regards,

Michael Maniska
Head of School

Dear LILA LA Community,

Thank you to all of our families who joined us virtually for last night’s weekly Head of School briefing.

As mentioned during the meeting, LA County remains in the Widespread (purple) category in the State Reopening Framework. This means that Tuesday, October 27 is now the earliest date by which we could have confirmation of our ability to reopen for in-person K-12 learning. Should we indeed receive such confirmation on October 27, our LA campuses would look to begin staggered reopenings by grade level thereafter.

I wish you and your children a restful October break and look forward to reconnecting with you during our next briefing on Tuesday, October 20.

Warm regards,

Michael Maniska
Head of School

Dear LILA LA Community,

Thank you to all of our families who joined us virtually for last night’s weekly Head of School briefing.

As mentioned during the meeting, LA County remains in the Widespread (purple) category in the State Reopening Framework. This means that LILA’s LA campuses will not reopen for in-person K-12 learning before Tuesday, October 20, at the earliest.

I look forward to connecting with you next Tuesday, which will be our last meeting before the October break. Until next week, be well.

Warm regards,
