The Los Angeles Zoo announces free student admission and a “Community Safari Day” Program in the event of a Los Angeles Unified School District Teachers’ Strike

The Los Angeles Zoo will offer free admission to Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) students grades K-12 as well as a “Community Safari Day” program for grades K-5, providing a safe and educational place for students during the LAUSD teachers’ strike.   

Free admission is offered to all currently enrolled LAUSD students grades K-12, along with a $5.00 fee for accompanying chaperones. Students merely need to show proof of enrollment by presenting a school ID card, report card, school newsletter or similar proof of enrollment. Complimentary admission will be offered Monday through Friday and only on days LAUSD schools are impacted due to the teachers’ strike. Tickets are available at the L.A. Zoo box office only. This limited-time discount is not available online.  

In addition to free admission, the L.A. Zoo will be offering a “Community Safari Day” program for children grades K-5. Supervised by the Zoo’s specially trained, experienced adult staff, students can spend the day engaged in fun activities and crafts while learning about their favorite animals. This program is currently being offered January 14-18, 2019 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with extended morning (8-9 a.m.) and afternoon (4-5 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.
