A Message from Monrovia Unified Regarding COVID-19 Response, School Reopening

While sharing an update to the roadmap to reopening the state in a phased approach, Gov. Newsom highlighted four stages:

  1. Safety and Preparedness
  2. Lower Risk Workplaces
  3. Higher Risk Workplaces
  4. End of Stay at Home Order
Under Stage 2, schools and childcare facilities would reopen and schools could begin the 2020-21 academic year in late July or August to address the learning losses that students have faced due to school dismissal. Though no definitive statement was made by Gov. Newsom, I want to affirm to you that the health and safety of our students and school community come first.

There are many unanswered questions that need to be addressed – most importantly, how will we ensure the health and safety of our students and staff. MUSD will continue to seek advice from experts and the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE). The District will make certain that every concern has been addressed to ensure the safety of our students and school community before we reopen.

We will continue to provide you updated information as we receive it. More can be found on our website. Pre-recorded messages are regularly updated at (626) 471-2084.

I encourage you to tune in to Conversations with Ralph Walker at 3 p.m. every Tuesday and Friday. The show airs on YouTube and features Board President Rob Hammond and Mayor Tom Adams, who share the latest local updates on COVID-19. Please submit questions to or by calling (626) 357-4974.
