Daily Pass / COVID Testing and Information

What if my student tests positive? 
Individuals who test positive may be released from isolation on Day 6, provided any symptoms are improving, are fever-free for the past 24 hours without fever-reducing medication, and have a negative (antigen) test result from a test taken on or after Day 5. 
Students who test positive should not take another PCR test for 90 days. 
Beginning the week of January 24th, and until further notice, students are required to wear well-fitting, non-cloth masks of multiple layers with a nose wire. Our school can provide your child with this type of mask if needed. 
Please see the Isolation & Quarantine Calendars to determine the timeline of next steps following a positive COVID test or close contact.

Due to the Pupil Free Day (1/10/2022) and the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday (1/17/2022) our regularly scheduled Thursday COVID testing has been moved to Friday for those two weeks. We will test as many students as possible on January 14th and 21st. 

Dear Los Angeles Unified Family, 

I hope your winter break was filled with rest, relaxation and quality time spent with loved  ones. 

In preparation for schools reopening on January 11, and in light of the rise in COVID-19  cases due to the Omicron variant, we are making changes to our health and safety  protocols. 


Please note the following updates: 

The first day of the Los Angeles Unified Spring semester for all K-12 students  will now be on Tuesday, January 11, 2022. 

● Monday, January 10, 2022, will be designated as a Pupil Free Day for school site  employees. 

Los Angeles Unified now requires COVID-19 testing for all students and  employees, regardless of vaccination status, before the first week back from  winter break. All students and employees will be required to have proof of a  negative COVID-19 test in order to come onto campus on January 11.  


○ Employees and students can get a baseline test beginning Monday,  January 3, 2022. 

○ For information on testing centers and to make a COVID-19 test

○ COVID-19 at-home rapid self-tests are available for K-12 students.

Weekly testing will continue for all students and employees through the  month of January.  


Masking will be required at all times, indoors and outdoors. It is strongly  recommended that all students wear well-fitting, non-cloth masks with a nose  wire. All employees are required to wear surgical grade masks or higher. 

○ Los Angeles Unified will continue to provide these kinds of masks to  students and employees if they need them. Additionally, these masks will  be available at our testing and Grab & Go sites.  


Vaccinations remain a key element in reducing the impact of COVID-19 on  individuals and communities, and will be required for students 12 and older  at the start of the Fall 2022 semester. 

○ Anyone 5 years or older is eligible for the two-dose Pfizer vaccine.  

○ Booster shots are available for anyone 16 and older, at least six months  after their second dose.  

○ For information on available vaccination sites, please visit  achieve.lausd.net/covidvaccineappt. 


Daily Pass health screening is required for all who enter school campuses. 

Keeping our schools safe is a top priority for Los Angeles Unified. We all have a role in  keeping our schools safe. Thank you for doing your part. Your feedback and partnership  are appreciated. As a united Los Angeles Unified community, we will work together to  ensure the safety of our students. We also thank our families and employees for the  ongoing support and patience as we continue to provide our students with the best  possible education in the safest possible environment.
