On Tuesday, Gov. Gavin Newsom said it was unlikely any California schools would reopen by summer break.
LAUSD, the second-largest school district in the nation, originally planned to open school resource centers where students had the opportunity to continue learning and engaging with one another. However, those plans were altered once President Donald Trump and health officials said gatherings should be limited to no more than ten people amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

The Grab & Go Food Centers will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. on weekends where students can take home two meals a day.

In addition, the district has provided a document for free online learning resources.
