LAUSD middle and high school campuses are now reopening. Here’s what to expect

Starting this week, principal Heather Karuza’s students at Fleming Middle School in Lomita face a choice.

“Do I stay on Zoom at home, where I can go to the fridge and not wear shoes?” Karuza says with a laugh. “Or do I get ready, and get dressed, and come to school, and sit in my class and Zoom?”

Karuza’s referring to the L.A. Unified School District’s plan for offering on-campus classes to middle- and high schoolers. Starting this week, students will get the option to come to campus every other day — but they’ll continue to attend their courses via Zoom, and they won’t change classrooms in-between class periods.
