Director's Message


Dear South Bay Adult School Community,


I am so thrilled to announce that we are OPEN for business this Fall. ESL, Citizenship, High School Diploma, GED and Career Pathways will all be back in person. Pearson VUE GED testing will also be back soon. We will be make a few changes, like having fewer students in a classroom and regular cleanings of classrooms. Also, all students will be required to ask themselves the following questions before they come to class:


Do I have any of the following symptoms:

    1. Fever (at or over 100.4°F)
    2. Chills
    3. Cough
    4. Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
    5. New loss of taste or smell
For students that are not vaccinated, you will also need to answer the following question:
    1. Have you been in contact with a person know to be infected with or suspected to have COVID-19 within the last 10 days
    2. Are you subject to a quarantine or isolation order?
If the answer is YES to any of the above, PLEASE stay home and contact the front office at 310-937-3340. All students will also be required wear a mask while they are in the classroom. 
We will continue to offer a limited number of online classes for ESL students as well. However, our goal is to get as many of you to return back to campus! We are also thrilled to announce the addition of a K12 Success class. This class is designed specifically for parents that are English Learners and looking find the best ways to make sure that their children are successfully in the Elementary, Middle or High School environment. As for our Community Education program, we currently still anticipate resuming those classes in the Winter Term. Stay tuned to this website for an updates.
Thank you and we truly CAN"T WAIT for you to be back at the South Bay Adult School!!!


Take care and stay healthy,
