2020-21 School Year

Elementary schools in Los Angeles County are now cleared to reopen for in-person learning! Under L.A. County health rules, middle and high schools could be eligible to reopen soon if COVID-19 case rates continue to fall.

We also have more exciting news to share! Nearly 85% of TAS educators have already received their first vaccination. This means that most of our staff will be fully vaccinated by the beginning of April.

Given this progress and months of careful planning and review of evidence-based guidance, ACES/TAS/WAHS will welcome students to return to campus for hybrid instruction starting week of Monday, April 12. Parents and students still have the option of continuing in distance learning mode for the remainder of the year.

We ask that you start thinking about whether your child will continue the year with on-site hybrid instruction (approximately 2x a week on-site) or continue distance learning for the rest of the 2020-21 academic year.

When you’ve made a decision, please complete Parent Survey on Re-Opening indicating your family’s choice so we can plan accordingly.

We look forward to welcoming students as well as teachers and staff back to campus safely. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!
