Dear Catskill Families,
In order to keep our families healthy and safe, LAUSD has closed schools but will continue to provide distance learning to students. Our teachers worked diligently to get work together for your children. All students were sent home with work packets. School is now closed and our custodial staff have been working hard to clean and sterilize the classrooms for our return.
Here are the schools open for “Grab and Go” food resources in the Local District South Area:
