LHP continues to carefully monitor the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our planning and response efforts remain focused on protecting the health and safety of our students and employees while continuing our crucial educational mission.
CAMPUS CLOSURE & LEARNING CONTINUITY PLAN
Updated March 27, 2020
LHP campuses are closed through Wednesday, April 15. We have instituted the LHP Learning Continuity Plan for all students PK–12 to ensure that learning continues while our campuses are closed.
We must all do our part to limit social interactions during this time. As Highlanders, we should be leaders in our community and refrain from congregating in groups for study, play, or socializing. We encourage you to be creative and come up with safe, alternative ways to socialize and connect with friends.
Campus Closure: Saturday, March 14 through Wednesday, April 15
LHP campuses will be closed through Wednesday, April 15. All events and activities (athletics, arts, practices, performances, field trips, clubs and other co-curricular activities) are cancelled through April 15.
LHP Learning Continuity Plan
The LHP Learning Continuity Plan launched on March 18 and will continue through Wednesday, April 15. As previously scheduled, LHP will be on Spring Break from Saturday, April 4 through Sunday, April 12.
- Learning continuity may take different forms depending on grade level and subject area, and learning experiences will vary in ways that are developmentally appropriate. Learning will take place both synchronously (everyone in a class will “meet” online at the same time) and asynchronously (students will complete work independently on their own time).

Travel for Families
LHP families or employees who plan to travel should regularly monitor the CDC Coronavirus Information for Travel and U.S. State Department Travel Advisories websites. With guidance from the Florida Department of Health, Florida Department of Education, and the Florida Council of Independent Schools, we strongly recommend all Highlanders:
PREVENTATIVE ACTIONS ON OUR CAMPUS
We have a concentrated focus on prevention and precautionary measures on both campuses. We have:
- Hired additional sanitizing crews to disinfect both campuses each night after our regular cleaning crews complete their operations.
- Continued aggressive sanitation measures by our Facilities crews to thoroughly clean and frequently wipe down commonly touched surfaces, including desks, doors, public spaces, and bathroom fixtures.
- Stocked all classrooms and offices with sanitizing supplies.
- Implemented daily treatment of all classrooms and offices with hospital-grade virucide.
- Ordered portable handwashing stations to install throughout our school.
- Installed 75 wall stations for hand sanitizing.
- Educated students and employees about best hygiene practices to help decrease the spread of any flu or virus.
- Posted educational notices about handwashing techniques, covering one’s mouth and nose. when sneezing or coughing, avoiding touching one’s eyes, nose and mouth, and staying home if sick.
