We are educators and we miss seeing our students in classrooms. But returning to schools without proper health and safety protections exposes our children and their families to COVID-19 — which puts them at greater risk of illness and death. 

Let’s be clear: The pressure to return to LA public schools unsafely is political. It is not science.

That is why we must stand united for a safe return to schools that our students and community members deserve. 

On Saturday, February 20, a 100-car caravan stretched through downtown Los Angeles sponsored by Students Deserve, Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment, Los Angeles Alliance for New Economy, Eastside Padres Contra La Privatización, Reclaim Our Schools Los Angeles, United Teachers Los Angeles.

“Before COVID-19, one in five children had a diagnosed mental health disorder.” - Supervisor Hilda Solis. We applaud this important step in the right direction for the health and wellbeing of our students.

In LA, parents and teachers worked together to win some of the strongest safety protocols in the country. Now we are on the ground making sure those protocols are followed to protect students and families.
