For now, the Online Parent Resource Center is here for you.  We hope to develop and foster community engagement, provide referrals to community based services, and give you resources to parent workshops, handouts and community events.  We encourage you to explore the educational system to become better advocates for your children and we will do our best to provide support to help our students and families achieve success.

Return to School in Three Easy Steps

 

Safe Steps logo

Step 1: Tell Us Your Choice

You may choose for your student(s) to return to campus in April or continue with online learning for the remainder of the school year. Letting us know will help your school in making arrangements for your student.

Please call your school directly to let them know your choice or fill out the the Program Selection Form to indicate your preference for your student(s) to learn online or in-person.

 

Step 2: Arrange for a COVID test

Arrange for your student to get a baseline COVID test the week prior to returning to school. This is required for all students returning to in-person instruction.
 

Visit the Los Angeles Unified COVID-19 site or call (213) 443-1300 to make an appointment.

 

Step 3: Use the Daily Pass

Practice using the Daily Pass which helps you to schedule COVID tests and complete the Daily Health Check.

The Daily Pass web app is your home for everything you need to get your student back to school safely. With the Daily Pass, you can:

  • Schedule your student's COVID test
  • Complete the Daily Health Check
  • Manage your student's testing and screening requirements

Log into the Daily Pass using your Parent Portal account information at https://dailypass.lausd.net

ELPAC RESOURCE

English Language (EL) Parents

The following is a video that demonstrates how you can practice the English Language Assessments for California (ELPAC) with your child. The Summative ELPAC test is administered annually in the spring to all English Language Development students. Practicing the test will help your child become familiar with the format and help ensure your child's best performance. The ELPAC test will most likely be administered remotely beginning in March (online) by your child's teacher. If you have any questions please contact America Castagnola, TSP Coordinator at axb5385@lausd.net.

Here is the youtube video: https://youtu.be/_O1TdYSSAko
