We understand that travel poses many challenges. However, students should make every effort to arrive and move in on Monday, August 31. (A future correspondence will discuss what to expect on August 31, Registration Day.) Students and families must let the Student Office know their travel plans as soon as possible. Contact either:
Mr. Bornt at (626)799-5010 x 234 or email@example.com or
Mr. Shriwise at (626)799-5010 x 208 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes. All students will have to be tested and provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result obtained within 7 days prior to arriving on campus. Students/families must present this document when they arrive on campus.
If a student tests positive before returning to campus, he or she must remain home for at least 14 days prior to coming to campus. In the event of this happening, notify the Student Office immediately (information above). We will be in touch with the family concerning the details of the student’s return.
It is important for students to be very careful before arriving on campus, especially during the 14 days prior to arrival. Following stated public health guidelines such as wearing face coverings, maintaining social distancing, washing hands frequently, and minimizing contacts and exposures are very important during this time.
Yes, all new and returning students to campus will quarantine for two weeks in the dormitories upon their arrival.
During the time of quarantine, students are expected to stay in their assigned dormitory. As instruction begins, students will work from their dorm rooms. All meals will be delivered to the dormitories. We will need students to cooperate and not congregate in rooms or visit other dorms. We’re planning some fun on-campus, outdoor activities, conducted at safe physical distance, for individual dorms.
No, unless in the future the student exhibits symptoms of the virus.
In order to care for every member of our school community certain practices will be required of everyone. These include, but are not limited to, use of face coverings, social distancing, hand washing, daily temperature testing, and participation in contact tracing (as necessary). If students are unable to comply with these standards, they will lose the opportunity to be on campus.
Yes. All students, faculty, and staff will have their temperatures taken every day, and each person will have to affirm that they do not have the symptoms for Covid-19 virus nor have they been in contact with anyone who has the symptoms. If other symptoms are present with or without a high temperature, students will be tested and isolated in a dorm until test results are returned. Faculty and staff who have recognized symptoms including a high temperature will be asked to stay at home and self-quarantine until tested negative for the virus.
If a student tests positive while on campus, he or she will be isolated in a dormitory set aside for this purpose and the family will be consulted as to the next steps that will be taken.
We will share updates with students and families as they become available. After arrival on campus, an orientation followed by regular student meetings will inform students of changes and updates.
