2021-2022 Return to Campus Plan
We are happy to return to campus for the new school year. To help ensure the health and safety of our students, families, faculty, and staff, we are following the guidelines of the LA County Department of Health and the CDC. We will continue to review our campus safety protocols so that we may adapt as the situation evolves, loosening or tightening requirements as needed. Our decision-making is guided by our goals of keeping students in-person in classrooms and on-campus and protecting all members of our community.
Vaccinations: All faculty and staff have been vaccinated.
Symptom and Temperature Screening: A daily morning symptom screening must be completed before faculty, staff, and students enter campus. We will continue to use the Visitu app for health screenings.
Masks: Masks must be worn in both shared indoor spaces and outdoors, regardless of vaccination status.
Physical Distancing: Distancing measures are followed such as desk and plexiglass placement in the classroom. Students’ snack and lunch times are staggered to limit the number of students in shared spaces and in hallways.
Indoor Air Quality: The Oaks has upgraded the filters on all of our air conditioning units to the highest level possible. Air purifiers have also been placed in each classroom. Doors and windows will remain open while the rooms are occupied.
Travel: If you have been recently traveling domestically or internationally, you are required to adhere to the LA County Department of Health guidelines here.
Visitors on Campus: At the start of school and until further notice, visitors to campus, including parents, guardians, family members, and caregivers, will be on hold. It is our hope to allow families back on campus at some point this fall. We will likely require those who wish to come on campus to be vaccinated and follow all of our COVID protocols.
Exposure Management: Students, employees, and visitors who have had close contact with an individual who has screened positive for symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will be notified of the potential exposure by the school. These individuals are not required to quarantine unless the exposure has been confirmed through a positive COVID-19 diagnostic viral (PCR) test, a clinical diagnosis from a medical provider, or the individual with symptoms has an epidemiologic link to someone with confirmed COVID-19.
Unvaccinated and/or symptomatic individuals who have a confirmed exposure will be required to quarantine for 10 days. Fully vaccinated, asymptomatic individuals who have a confirmed exposure are not required to quarantine but must monitor for symptoms for 14 days, report any symptoms to the school, and be tested for COVID-19 three to five days after exposure.
