Responding to COVID-19
|School vaccination rates|
*Following county, state, and CDC guidelines, the school must inform families and employees if they were in close contact with an individual who was infectious with COVID-19 when on campus. This information is confirmed through lab testing and contact tracing. Community members who were not on campus when infectious are not included in our tally.
We are committed to keeping our community informed, and this web page is the main hub for important communications. Whenever we have a major update, we will also send it via to our community via email. An archive of previous communications will be posted here. Please note: The school’s plans are subject to change based on the guidelines from the LA County Department of Public Health and the California Department of Public Health. We are obliged to follow the guidelines that are most restrictive.
The health and safety of our community remains our number one priority. Flintridge Preparatory School is committed to following all Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) protocols for K-12 campuses, even as these policies evolve.
At various times of year, LACDPH may strongly recommend or require masks indoors and or in crowded outdoor spaces on campus. At other times, community members may be required to wear a mask in accordance with County-prescribed isolation or quarantine guidance. In these circumstances, individuals should not take off masks unless eating or drinking.
It is Flintridge Prep's policy that when masks are strongly recommended or required, they should provide the best protection against COVID-19 should be worn. Examples include a well-fitting respirator (e.g., N95, KN95) or a double mask (a well-fitting cloth mask over a medical mask). Cloth masks are not acceptable.
We continue to adapt to the health situation caused by COVID-19, and the spirit of our community is one of compassion, respect, and understanding. All community members will be welcome to wear masks as they see fit according to their individual circumstances.
All students, faculty, and staff must be vaccinated against COVID-19. Boosters are strongly encouraged but not required. Vaccination status can be updated by logging in to onCampus and visiting the Magnus Health portal. For instructions on this process, visit the Vaccination Policy section of the On-Campus Safety Plan.
