Students and staff at Beach Cities school districts will have the option to do this screening, developed in partnership with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, through their mobile device before entering the school. Families are also encouraged to do daily temperature checks at home, so they are able to accurately answer the screening questions. In-person screening will also be available for students and staff who are unable to access the screening through their mobile device by entering through the “ADDITIONAL SCREENING” line at the school entrance.

If you have additional questions regarding health and safety, please call BCHD’s Assistance, Information & Referral line at 310-374-3426 and press option 2 on school days between 7:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. Please mention which school you are calling from to be connected to a BCHD COVID-19 Care Navigator.

Health Guidance and Protocols for Schools


Reopening Schools in Los Angeles County
Los Angeles County’s adjusted case rate has remained under 25 new cases per 100,000 people for more than five consecutive days, meeting the state requirements for schools to open on-site learning for grades TK through 6 if they are in full compliance with state and county directives. All schools wishing to reopen must submit plans to the County Department of Public Health and the California Department of Public Health certifying that they have implemented a full range of safety measures to permit a safe reopening. While Beach Cities school districts reopened for in-person instruction for K-2 in early February, this will allow more students in grades 3-5 to return to campus.
