Dear LAUSD Parents,
As a result of a safety threat made against Los Angeles Unified schools and, in an abundance of caution, Superintendent Ramon C. Cortines has directed that all schools be closed today to ensure the safety of all students and school-site employees.
We are deferring to law enforcement on any questions relating to the threat. The District has no further information or details at this point.
Campus administrators and law enforcement are doing a walk-through of every school, checking for anything suspicious.
LAUSD students can ride Metro buses and trains today for free.
The District has set up an information hotline at 213-241-2064. In addition, half-hour updates will be provided at lausd.net and on KLCS-TV.
