LASD delayed its in-person return by a week.

The Los Altos School District (LASD) has delayed its in-person return to campuses by one week. LASD originally planned to have special education students return to campus on Monday, September 21, followed by ascending grade level students in the coming weeks — students will now return on Monday, September 28.

The delay, according to Superintendent Jeffery Baier, is a precaution the District is taking in order to ensure that staff members are prepared and taking all the necessary precautions before the return. 

The District still plans on following a hybrid model, where students will spend two days on campus in small cohorts and the other three days remote learning.

Baier confirmed in an interview with The Town Crier that non special education students will still return on schedule if all goes well.
