In an effort to provide a clean and safe environment for your child(ren), we will follow LA County Department of Public Health and ESGVJCC safety guidelines. We will be asking families to help with setting up/cleaning up/disinfecting the classrooms for September's in-person class. Learning platform for the remaining school year may change depending on various factors including, but not limited to pandemic status, changes to LA County Department of Public Health guidelines, and whether families will be able to participate in helping with classroom set up/clean up/disinfection. We will communicate with families of any changes as we progress through the school year.
