A Los Altos School District nurse collects a nasal swab from a student as a part of the pooled testing program in February 2021. According to the district, the need for health services work has gone down since the heigh of the pandemic.

While the Los Altos School District is in a better financial position than last year, administrators are facing major upcoming expenses with the development of the 10th school site, the monster of inflation and a possible recession in the next few years.

To address the impending expenditures, one of the first difficult decisions LASD officials had to make was to lay off two full-time nurses to free up money to increase staff salaries.
