Two Beverly Hills Unified School District classrooms went to remote learning due to COVID-19 for one day after school returned from winter break, per the direction of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health.
BHUSD Superintendent of Schools Michael Bregy said on Jan. 25 that two Hawthorne Elementary School classrooms had gone virtual due to three epidemiologically linked cases two weeks ago.
“That decision didn’t come easy,” he said.
Bregy referenced the Culver City School District’s decision to cancel classes for a week, when COVID-19 cases “were out of control.”
“We have to make our best judgment,” he added.
Last week, the district entertained the possibility of hosting a study session to combat the increase in COVID-19 cases. As of Jan. 26, the district had 54 students test positive for COVID-19, as well as 12 staff members. The majority of cases were at Beverly Hills High School.
