If Los Angeles County officials get their way, school is going to be quite a bit different when it finally resumes.
A few suggested guidelines include protective face masks for students, classes to be limited to 16 students and lunches to be eaten in classrooms.
The suggested measures are part of the L.A. County Office of Education's 45-page plan, which was released Wednesday. "Our main priority is health and safety,'' says Superintendent Debra Duardo. "Unfortunately, some of the things that children could enjoy in the past-- they're not going to be able to do that.''
Duardo stresses the plan offers suggestions for individual school districts to consider; whether the measures are adopted are up to each district's officials. A reopening date for California schools has not yet been determined.
