Los Alamitos High going Virtual & Closing Due to Surge of Covid Cases

Los Alamitos Unified School District Superintendent Andrew Pulver announced that Los Alamitos High will move to online learning and will shut down for a month due to a rise of Covid-19 cases.

Another bump in the road:

The high school's closure will start Wednesday, December 16, and will last until Thursday, January 14. Superintendent Pulver wrote in his statement that while Covid-19 cases "among students and staff at LAHS is still well below the 5% threshold set by the CDPH." Los Alamitos High School has been disrupted continuously by an upsurge of students and staff that have to be quarantined because they have come into close contact with a person infected with the coronavirus.

  • Elementary and middle schools will remain open in their current hybrid schedule.

  • Los Alamitos Unified has been open for hybrid teaching and in-person learning for all grades since October.

  • All extracurricular programs, district-wide, will be suspended from the start of winter break through January 19, 2021.

Keep this in mind👇:

Los Alamitos Unified School District was the first in Orange County to reopen due to a state waiver, according to a report by ABC 7.

  • 👉Last week the Los Alamitos Unified's dashboard showed the school had 23 cases. On Thursday, the school had 27 cases, and as of today, Dec.15, there were 37 cases which is over 1% of the school, per The OC Voice.
