Los Angeles County Tier:
Note: Currently, Los Angeles County's metrics meet the criteria for the Moderate (Orange) tier. In order to move into a less restrictive tier, counties must remain in a tier for at least 3 weeks — which means Los Angeles County may be advancing to the Moderate tier in the coming weeks.

What this all means for Wiseburn
Over the past few weeks, we've been thrilled to see the county's progression from the Widespread to the Substantial Tier and to know the COVID-19 impact on our communities continues to lessen. We remain hopeful that as we remain vigilant in reducing the spread of COVID-19 and as vaccines continue to be distributed, we will continue to approach the light at the end of the tunnel of this pandemic.
With the improving metrics, we've been able to reopen our schools this month for some students in the hybrid instructional model, and to also maintain the distance learning instruction option. As we continue to devote our efforts to a strong and safe finish to the school year for our distance and hybrid learners, we are retiring the Wiseburn COVID-19 Dashboard newsletter. We hope this newsletter has provided our community with information and updates that were helpful as we navigated some of the more difficult months of the pandemic, and we thank each of you for following along and engaging with us.
Though the newsletter is coming to an end, we will continue to maintain an updated Wiseburn COVID-19 Dashboard on our website. This Dashboard takes the place of this newsletter and instead offers a glimpse of Wiseburn's COVID-19 data, updated weekly. You can find the Wiseburn COVID-19 Dashboard on our website through our COVID-19 Operations and Learning Plan page, or bookmark the Dashboard page here.
As of this week, there continue to be 0 confirmed active COVID-19 cases among District students and staff on its campuses (in-person instruction only). We aim to maintain the safety of our students, staff, and community and ask that we all do our part to remain vigilant as ever, even as we approach Spring Break and hopefully continue to see case rates decline.
Thank you to each of you for reading, and may your families stay safe and healthy as we approach the end of the pandemic, hopefully in the months to come.
