COVID-19 UPDATE TO ALL LEARN EMPLOYEES
March 23, 2020
Here is an update on the current efforts underway with districts. LEARN is currently in discussion with El Monte City School District regarding the potential to assist students virtually via Zoom. We will know more regarding this potential resource in the next 48 hours. We have reached out to both Whittier Union and El Monte Union High School Districts regarding the same effort and will report back when we have something substantial to report on.
We hope that all are remaining safe during this time and that all are heeding the warnings regarding social distancing and personal safety measures. LEARN will be providing updates on the progress with school districts as they emerge. Again, if you have any questions, reach out to your site coordinators accordingly.

To All LEARN Employees,
We know that this is a difficult time we are all going through currently, both personally and financially. Here are some things we are currently working on. LEARN is in the process of discussing ways for LEARN staff to assist students with schoolwork at El Monte City School District. We will know more about this early next week. When we know more, we will be in touch with your Site Coordinators with details. We hope the same efforts will occur at Whittier Union High School District and El Monte Union High School District soon.
LEARN hopes to be able to have more information as it develops and will be sending out weekly updates on the current situation, or more often, if developments require it. If you have any questions, please reach out to your Site Coordinators or Supervisors via email.
We don’t have a definitive date on school districts re-opening, yet, but it would likely be after April 19. However, I know our governor recently suggested that we should prepare for schools to be closed for the rest of the school year. Given the uncertainty we’re facing as a county, state and country in combating the virus, we do not know if that will happen.
In response to the new “Stay at Home” and “Safer at Home” orders issued by the state and county, respectively, as of March 20, our main office will be closed through April 19, assuming the county’s order is lifted April 19. However, essential employees will continue to work from home and remain on call, so please feel free to contact your Site Coordinators or Supervisors with any questions or concerns pertaining to your employment with LEARN. Due to the office closure, employees that are not currently enrolled for direct deposit with us should note that they will be getting their paper check mailed to them on Thursday, 03/26/2020. Paycheck pick-up will not be available on pay date 03/27/2020.
We continue to work with public health and education officials to follow their lead during this time. We will keep you posted on any changes that may come.
We hope that everyone is heeding the warnings to stay at home and to only go out if necessary. Your efforts will keep us all safe.
