SHERMAN OAKS (CBSLA) – When a parent walked by Kester Avenue Elementary School Wednesday morning, she was shocked to see kids on campus despite the Los Angeles Unified School District keeping schools closed for instruction during the pandemic.
“Apparently, LAUSD is allowing dozens of kids on campus to work and do a shoot for Apple TV but they say it’s unsafe to have kids on campus to learn,” said Jenny Hontz. “What on Earth? This is completely insane!”
Hontz is a mom and the communications director for Speak UP, a Los Angeles grassroots parent organization. She said one of the parents that saw the show filming asked what was going on and couldn’t believe it.
“Parents are outraged by this,” said Hontz. “It’s absolutely clear that LAUSD has their priorities wrong.”
