Knowing that a Lausanne education is best experienced through in-person relationships, we are excited to have students back on campus. Safety measures are in place that address the Covid-19 pandemic.
Our task force, made up of infectious disease experts, doctors and members of our administrative team, is continually working on ways to minimize risks and keep students safe while giving our community a return to the routines we all miss.
All students return to campus for classes with safety protocols in place. Small groups interact, maintaining social distance in "protective bubbles" or cohorts as they move around campus and in their classrooms. Click here to see our plans for On-Campus Classes.
Understanding that some parents may not feel comfortable with their child returning, we're offering optional online classes for students to continue learning from home. These include cameras in classrooms that allow students to be present virtually, teachers to record lessons and posting assignments for students online. Click here to learn more.
Our campus has the ability to creatively utilize the 250,000 square feet of nine uniquely designed campus buildings to continue to allow for small groups to learn and move through campus while maintaining the safety of our community. But understanding that some parents may not feel comfortable with their child returning to campus for in-person learning, we're offering an optional distance learning plan for students to continue learning from home. This option includes cameras in classrooms that allow students to be present virtually, teachers to record lessons and posting assignments for students online. Click here to learn more.
If the campus is ordered closed by governmental mandates, classes are held online. The essential goal is to support student well-being and academic development during a significant disruption to our daily operations for an extended period. We also want to ensure that we continue to foster student learning without being able to meet our students in person. Our plans for distance learning can be found here.
Students returned to campus staggered by division beginning Monday, August 17. This allowed us to address issues as needed as we ramp up our on-campus activities.
More detailed plans were developed by division subcommittees. You can find those here.
AfterCare for Grades PK – 8th is available from 3:15 - 6 p.m. for Lower and Middle School students. Registration can be found here or on your Parent Portal on Veracross.
In order to maintain contact tracing and appropriate numbers and staffing, drop-ins will not be allowed. Further precautions such as cohorts, carpool and scheduling will be amended. Learn more by contacting Leslie Crais, Director of AfterCare at email@example.com.
Conservatory and Enrichment activities began in phases after Labor Day. This includes private music lessons, tutoring sessions, outdoor visual art and dance classes, virtual chess classes and more. Registration for these activities is now open on our website. More details and information on activities offered can be found at www.lausanne360.com.
Utilizing protocols for visiting campus (temperature checks, social distancing, facial coverings), we began welcoming students back to campus to resume practices for varsity fall sports (cross country, volleyball, football, etc.). Administrative staff also returned to school and began to work on redesigning areas to allow for the social distancing of students.
Summers@Lausanne begins following campus safety measures and testing feasibility of plan for social distancing inside of classrooms.
A decision on Middle School Athletics has been moved back to August 3.
Ensuring the campus can remain open requires us to think through lots of different questions, some of which we've addressed on our FAQ page. You can also submit your question or concern to the task force using this anonymous form.
