Harkham Hillel Hebrew Academy, 9120 W. Olympic Blvd. will remain closed until at least Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A sign on the school’s door says the school is closed, adding, “We will miss you” and “Have a meaningful Purim.”

The festival of Purim, which began Monday night, typically includes the giving of money to the poor and sending gifts of food.

The parent in question is believed to have attended the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. last week. The parent has reportedly been quarantined and the rest of the family has not exhibited any symptoms of coronavirus.

The newspaper says digital classes will be available to students.
