SPUSD announced it will close school campuses for the rest of the school year on Wednesday, Apr. 1, under the discretion of the Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools and state officials.
Students will continue to learn at home as the district plans to implement its Independent Study Distance Learning Program (ISDLP). SPUSD Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) will continue to provide free breakfast and lunch during this time.
SPUSD announced its original school closure on Mar. 12, extending the district’s spring break by two weeks before extending once again to May 5.
“As we embark on this journey together, please know that we are committed to maintaining a quality learning environment,” Superintendent Geoff Yantz said in a statement to parents and students. “Many others within our district are working behind the scenes, around the clock, to make this type of learning a reality for our students.”
SPUSD’s online learning program will launch on Apr. 6 and last until June 3.
