Los Angeles Unified School District campuses remain closed for in-person learning due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the district wants parents to tell them whether or not they’d send their kids back for in-person learning when the time does come for the morning bell to ring again.

LAUSD has sent a survey to parents in the district that aims to collect information on where parents stand in terms of desire to have their kids back in school in a hybrid model or to remain at home doing distance learning. The district has provided some details on what the hybrid model will look like, but has not given any specific information on things like whether kids would come in for morning or afternoon instruction and which grades would be on campus when in-person instruction resumes.

Today on AirTalk, we want to hear from LAUSD parents and students wrestling with this decision. What is the reasoning behind what you’ll choose for your child on the survey? How are you balancing your child’s safety and making sure they receive the most comprehensive learning experience possible? Join the live conversation by calling us at 866-893-5722.
