According to the district's online dashboard, there are 11 confirmed positive cases among students and staff at the school, although only seven were the result of "school-based transmission." It was unclear if all the cases were among students or if they were a mix of students and staff.
"The cases are concentrated in a single classroom and Los Angeles Unified is fully cooperating with the Department of Public Health," according to a statement from a district representative. "The district has alerted all those potentially impacted and the quarantined class has been provided with instructional materials to continue their studies."
