Need Internet Connectivity at Home? Complete our Form
The LAUSD is offering Wi-Fi HotSpot devices for students without home internet connectivity. A HotSpot will provide internet access for all of your devices at home. This is more important than ever as our students rely on connectivity for much of their class attendance, and school work. If you need a device to connect to the internet at home, you can request one by filling out this form. Whether you need a device or not, we would ask all families to fill out the form so we can verify that all of our students and their families have connectivity.

• At Hale, we have been preparing for a possible school closure. Each teacher has developed a curriculum based on the use of a variety of resources including Schoology, school textbooks, paper printouts, and other online resources. Your child should know the learning expectations for each class, and work to meet those expectations during their time out of school. You can support your child by developing a regimen to follow, that works for your family, so that they make consistent progress during their absence from school.
 
• Attached are resources for parents and students that should be useful during the school closure.
