After School Recreational Enrichment Program

In early October, the L.A. County Department of Public Health began accepting applications from schools for waivers for in-person instruction for grades TK-2. Waivers will be granted to 30 schools per week, prioritizing those with higher percentages of students qualified for free/reduced meals. Learn how to apply at publichealth.lacounty.gov.
K-12 schools may offer in-school services for small cohorts of (up to 12) students with:
- Individualized Education Plans (IEP);
- Requiring instruction for English as a Second Language;
- Or needing assessments or specialized in-school services
As long as the school is able to fully implement the Health Officer's guidance and protocols and submits an operational plan. This change will get children who are in the most need of in-person learning back into their classrooms.

PVPUSD COVID-19 Dashboard
In an effort to provide accurate and transparent information regarding COVID-19 cases on PVPUSD campuses while also maintaining privacy and confidentiality for students and staff, PVPUSD has created a COVID-19 Dashboard for confirmed positive cases among district students and staff. The data shared on the dashboard will be updated regularly as COVID-19 positive cases are confirmed at campuses for in-person instruction only. The data for a positive case will be removed from the dashboard when the individual is cleared to return to campus.
To access the dashboard, please visit www.pvpusd.net/dashboard/
