We Are Safely Open for In-person Classes!
The Monrovia Community Adult School is following Center for Disease Control, and California and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) guidelines for re-opening our campus for in-person classes. The foundational principle of the CDC, California, and County guidance is “students benefit from in-person learning, and safely returning to in-person instruction in the fall 2021 is a priority.” California guidelines explain, “Recent evidence indicates that in-person instruction can occur safely without minimum physical distancing requirements when other mitigation strategies (e.g., masking) are fully implemented.” Links to state and CDC guidelines are below:
