While some adjustments will be necessary, we are confident that our students will find their return to campus a joyful and inspiring experience with their peers. As always, we are fortunate to have an exceptionally dedicated and nurturing faculty, spacious campus, small class sizes, and superior technology to help us accommodate students throughout this evolving situation.
Our plan recognizes the dynamic nature of our current situation and allows us to pivot to meet the needs of our community and to transition to distance learning as needed when the state of California places Placer County on the Covid-19 Watchlist.
Our primary goal is to have students in the classroom. We agree with the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatrics that the best place for students is to be physically present in school with their peers during this time, and we are creating the safest school environment to do so.
We will continue to review all mandated safety guidelines for onsite learning. We hold ourselves to St. Albans’ rigorous educational standards. We base our decisions on the most up-to-date information available from local, state and national resources, state education guidelines, as well as our internal expertise and knowledge base for children’s education and best practices.
We are counting on our entire community to help ensure our school environment remains healthy. This includes the actions and interactions taking place in your home environment.
We have created a robust plan including contact tracing, symptom checking and protocols for responding to scenarios. As we return to campus, new health and safety measures will be in place.
Students and teachers will become learning communities by class year and will limit exposure outside of their immediate classroom.
We are able to limit student movement in between classes and interactions between classes during recess and lunch. Additionally, we have new outdoor learning spaces designed to allow socially distanced, fresh air activities with classmates.
Masking is required for all students and adults while on campus, unless a teacher uses the outdoor learning space which accommodates open air and social distanced interaction.
At the beginning of school each day, every student will have their temperature checked by their teacher.
Students will remain with their classmates, and will not intermingle with other classes during recess. Lunches will individually prepared, wrapped and delivered to each classroom, where students will remain with their cohorts.
We have planned for both in-person and distance learning scenarios, and will transition readily in response to state mandates. We do not currently offer a combined virtual/in-person option because the lessons that work best in the classroom do not translate into effective virtual work. Lecture style classes do not work for our youngest students and our hands-on learning program.
