Dear Community Member,
Thank you to all parents who have responded to our survey regarding online learning. We are taking your feedback into account as we develop responsive plans for the coming semester.
As you likely have seen, Los Angeles County, like many other parts of the country, is experiencing a surge of infections, and LADPH has confirmed our analysis that it is unlikely that LA County will move to Tier 2 in this calendar year. As Thanksgiving, the December holidays, and the new year approach, we realize that many may be feeling “quarantine fatigue.” We encourage our community to remain mindful of the preventative health measures and practices that we have been asked to follow by LADPH. Research shows that maintaining physical distance, wearing face coverings, self-monitoring, and minimizing interaction outside of your household reduces the risk of transmission of the virus.
LADPH has indicated that middle and high schools may bring small, stable cohorts of students on campus for outdoor, physically-distanced programming to meet special needs not being met through online instruction. In response to this new opportunity, Prep is planning to bring each grade level on campus for an in-person event, following these guidelines, prior to the winter break. In addition, we continue to work toward a program that will provide a weekly, in-person, small cohort activity to meet social and emotional needs for each student in the second semester. Participation in all such activities will be completely optional. More information will be forthcoming.
