Students were sent home from all Los Angeles Unified School District schools Tuesday morning, according to school police.
Los Angeles Unified School District officials plan to conduct a news conference after confirming the potential closure of all schools in the nation's second-largest school district. Details regarding the news conference were not immediately available.
Los Angeles School Police confirmed that all students already at schools will be sent home Tuesday morning. An employee at a school bus yard said drivers were told not to leave the lot.
The district did not confirm whether the decision was due to a potential safety threat.
LAUSD enrolls more than 640,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade at more than 900 schools. The district covers about 720 square miles in Los Angeles and smaller Southern California communities.
