L.A. Zoo Offers Free Student Admission and a “Community Safari Day” Program in the Event of LAUSD School Closures
The Los Angeles Zoo will offer free admission to Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) students in grades K-12 as well as a “Community Safari Day” program for grades K-5, providing a safe and educational space for students in the event LAUSD schools are closed this week.
Free admission will be offered to all currently enrolled LAUSD students grades K-12, along with a $5 fee for accompanying chaperones. Students need to show proof of enrollment by presenting their school identification card, report card, school newsletter, or similar proof of enrollment. Complimentary admission will be offered only on days LAUSD schools are impacted by the pending closures. Tickets must be purchased in person at the L.A. Zoo box office. This is a limited time discount and is not available online.
In addition to free admission, the L.A. Zoo will also be offering a “Community Safari Day” program for children in grades K-5. Under the supervision of the Zoo’s Learning & Engagement staff, students can spend the day engaged in fun activities and crafts while learning about their favorite animals. This program will be offered from Tuesday, March 21 through Thursday, March 23 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., with extended morning (8:00 – 9:00 a.m.) and afternoon (4:00 – 5:00 p.m.) hours offered for free with paid registration. Admission is $50 per student. Space is limited and online advance registration required. In the event that school closures end, any fees paid for future dates will be refunded. No refunds will be permitted for other individual cancellations. To learn more and register, please visit www.lazoo.org/lausd.
