2021 Campus Procedures

As you and your family prepare for the school year at Lausanne, please review the information below. 

VACCINES REQUIRED FOR SEVERAL OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES

Several activities at Lausanne will require students to verify they have received a coronavirus vaccine. We highly encourage students to receive their vaccine as soon as it becomes available for their age group. Proof of vaccinations may be required during or in other special circumstances, such as contact tracing. 

According to the CDC, people who have been vaccinated are not required to quarantine because of close contact. Knowing the total number of students that have received the vaccine will also help us determine when we would be able to have masks off inside our buildings. Additionally, proof of vaccination will be required to attend some activities, such as overnight trips and lock-ins. 

If your child has been vaccinated against the coronavirus, please share the proof with us by clicking here to share a picture of the vaccination card. Please include the person’s name and grade level.

QUARANTINE PROCEDURES

If your student tests positive for COVID-19, or has been exposed to the coronavirus, they must quarantine for at least 10 days. People exposed to the coronavirus must quarantine for seven days with a negative test on day five or later. Following CDC recommendations, vaccinated students DO NOT have to quarantine. If a student must stay home for an extended amount of time due to the current CDC Covid-19 guidelines, age-appropriate learning accommodations will be provided. Please contact our school nurse to let them know of the possible exposure and to begin contact tracing. 

MASKS GUIDELINES ON CAMPUS

Beginning August 2, following AAP recommendations, to protect the 350 students that are not able to receive the vaccine at this point in time, all students, faculty and staff will be required to wear masks on campus, both indoors and in our campus breezeway. At the discretion of their teacher, masks may not be required outdoors outside of our breezeway where social distancing of three feet or greater can be maintained.  Members of athletic teams may also be allowed by their coach to go without a mask while practicing and competing. 

This policy will be reevaluated at fall break, when it could change as vaccination availability becomes more widespread, coronavirus transmission rates decrease, or the number of vaccinated students on campus grows. 

"Picking fall break would allow the school to witness the severity of the peek in a region where vaccinations are low and while children under 12 are still not eligible for the vaccine," explains Covid Task Force member Dr. Neil Hayes.

Visitors to campus should continue to wear facial coverings regardless of vaccination status.

SOCIAL DISTANCING

Students, faculty and staff should still practice social distancing of at least three feet per CDC recommendations issued in March.
