We are asking parents to make an appointment for an initial test now to help us prepare for the opening of school for in-person instruction. Please schedule an appointment for your child at https://achieve.lausd.net/covidtestingappt.
Greetings Lo.V.E. Families, this is Dr. Smith with your Weekly Updates.
Thank you to all the families who have taken the Baseline COVID-19 test. As we continue to prepare for the opening of school for in-person instruction, an initial test will provide the District the valuable information it needs about the incidence of COVID -19 in the communities we serve. Immediately prior to the reopening of schools, all students and staff who will be returning to schools, will be provided with a further, back-to-school baseline test.
Please schedule an appointment for your child at https://achieve.lausd.net/covidtestingappt.
You will need your child’s student ID number to schedule an appointment. You may obtain your child’s student ID number by accessing the Parent Portal at https://parentportalapp.lausd.net/parentaccess/ or by calling our LAUSD hotline at 213-443-1300.

As we approach Parent Conference week, Parent Portal will be the way for you to access your child’s report card.
