COVID-19 Quarantine FAQs
How is Distance Learning different from Digital Campus?
- Lower School:
- Digital Campus students are enrolled in all virtual classes for the entire semester.
- Middle & Upper Schools:
- Digital Campus students are enrolled in all virtual classes and may return to on-campus classes with 24 hours of notice to your child’s assigned school counselor.
- All School: Distance Learning is the term LHP uses for virtual learning during required quarantine periods.
If my child is in the same classroom as another student who has tested positive for COVID-19, are they required to quarantine?
- Not necessarily. The CDC defines exposure as contact within 6 feet, for 15 or more cumulative minutes within 24 hours, with someone who has tested positive. If your child is considered exposed, you will receive a personal phone call from our Health team to advise next steps, followed by communications from school administration to seamlessly shift from on-campus to Distance Learning, if necessary.
If my child is asked to move from on-campus learning to Distance Leaning because of a school-initiated quarantine, does his/her sibling need to quarantine?
- The CDC defines exposure as contact within 6 feet, for 15 or more cumulative minutes within 24 hours, with someone who has tested positive. Siblings of students who are quarantined are not considered exposed, per the DOH, because they have not been in direct contact with the person who tested positive.
If my student is asked to move from on-campus learning to Distance Learning due to quarantine, how will academic instruction be continued?
- Lower School: Students will continue with their established learning schedule with their classes’ assigned teacher, while maintaining developmentally appropriate amounts of screen time. More information will be provided by school administration or their teacher, if quarantine is needed.
- Middle School: Students will be provided a new Distance Learning schedule, which aligns with our Digital Campus. Students and teachers will interact through Zoom, and will use Canvas as their learning management system to keep up with assignments and grades. More information will be provided by school administration and individual teachers if quarantine is needed.
- Upper School: Students will follow their same schedule. Classes will be taught by the same instructors. Students and teachers will interact through Zoom and will use Canvas as their learning management system to keep up with assignments and grades. More information will be provided by school administration, school counselors, and teachers if quarantine is needed.
Any positive COVID-19 test should be reported to our Health Services Coordinator, who will work with positive and exposed students, families, and employees on a case-by-case basis.
