Responding to COVID-19

Flintridge Prep Return to Campus Plan

Our phased approach to a return to hybrid learning is consistent with our commitment to maintaining and protecting the physical and emotional health of our community, providing the best quality academic program and student experience possible, and being adaptable, patient, and caring as our parents and faculty navigate how these changes will impact their commutes, childcare plans, and other personal considerations. We appreciate our families’ commitment to the health, safety, and wellbeing of our whole community, and we look forward to a safe return to classroom learning.

We are committed to keeping our community informed, and this web page is the main hub for important communications. We will update this page with answers to your frequently asked questions, and whenever we have a major update, we will also send it 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.

Visitors to Campus

Any on-campus visitors who are not using the Magnus Health symptom tracker are asked to print and complete our Symptom Self-Assessment form prior to arriving to campus. Please bring the completed form with you to each event. If you forget this form, copies are available at all check in areas.

Travel Policy and the Community Commitment

If you plan on traveling, please follow Los Angeles County guidelines.

  • All travelers who are not fully vaccinated should get tested with a COVID-19 viral test 1-3 days before travel. Travel should not be initiated until a negative test result is returned.
  • All travelers who test positive or develop symptoms of COVID-19 must isolate and follow County isolation instructions. Do not travel when symptomatic or with a positive COVID-19 test result, regardless of vaccination status.
  • All non-essential travelers who are not fully vaccinated arriving in or returning to California from other states or countries must quarantine as described in the county guidelines.
  • Fully vaccinated persons may travel but should continue to take precautions. If asymptomatic, no quarantine or testing is needed upon return.

Definition of Fully Vaccinated

A person is considered fully vaccinated ≥2 weeks following the receipt of:

  • the second dose in a 2-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna);
  • one dose of a single-dose vaccine (Johnson and Johnson/Janssen).

Persons who don’t meet these requirements must follow the travel instructions for Persons Who Are Not Fully Vaccinated.

Student Testing After Travel and When Fully Vaccinated

Students do not need to provide proof to the school of a negative test result after travel. It is essential that families follow the county guidelines, the Honor Code, and the Community Commitment. Students should learn from home until their required quarantine period ends. 

When they return to school, students should continue to participate in weekly testing through the school. This is true under all circumstances, regardless of whether students are fully vaccinated.

If an Individual Tests Positive

Please notify Andres AlamilloKim Kinder, and Theresa King immediately and follow decision pathways provided by the LADPH if you test positive for COVID-19 using another testing service. You should isolate for at least 10 days from the date of the positive test and at least 24 hours after fever resolution and improvement in other symptoms. LADPH will be notified if any member of our community tests positive, and school-based close contacts will be identified and instructed to test and quarantine following exposure protocols. 

Health and Symptoms Self-Assessment for Campus Guests

Through the end of the 2020-2021 school year, all family guests coming to campus for events, including sporting events, must complete a Symptom Self-Assessment form and follow the protocols listed below, regardless of vaccination status: 

  • Do not come to campus if you have any symptoms of COVID-19, are quarantining after travel, or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19.
  • Follow the Community Commitment, Honor Code, and the On Campus Safety Plan.
  • Guests must complete this Symptom Self-Assessment form and bring it with them to each event.
  • All guests must have their temperature checked upon entry.
  • Masks should be worn at all times.
  • Six-foot distancing protocols should be followed at all times.
  • Parents/guardians should complete the Magnus Health app symptom check-in for their student 30 minutes before arriving to campus for an event. Share the GO screen with students.
  • Students who were already on campus for their Blue or Silver Day do not need to redo their Magnus Health app symptom check for an after-school event.
