Daily Pass

The Daily Pass app is designed just for LAUSD students, families, and staff to facilitate a safe return to school. In order to enter a school campus, you must complete a quick daily health check through the app and generate a QR code for the specific day and school site. A "Welcomer" at the school site will scan your QR code and take your temperature at the school entrance. The Daily Pass app is also available through Microsoft Power Apps, which can be downloaded on your iPhone or Android. View the resources below or visit the LAUSD Daily Pass Website for more details.

COVID-19 Testing

 Los Angeles Unified is providing COVID testing for all students and staff. In accordance with the most recent guidance from L.A. County Department of Public Health, all students and employees participating in in-person instruction will undergo weekly COVID testing at their school site, regardless of vaccination status. You can also schedule a test here.
