Along with installing cameras and wifi access points in preparation for families who chose to start the school year online, Lausanne also spent the summer making enhancements around campus to help ensure the health and safety of our Lynx returning to the classroom.
"Adapting to the circumstances happening around us while still being able to provide the best possible education is a huge priority at Lausanne," Headmaster Stuart McCathie said. "We spent a lot of time researching and implementing different ways to keep the campus clean, safe and ready for on-campus learning,"
Some of the adjustments included new cleaning and disinfecting solutions, HVAC upgrades, and changes to how we supply water to students.
Using an electrostatic sprayer, the hospital-grade disinfectant, SNiPER, was applied to all learning areas, followed by an application of Enviroshield Endure, which provides a durable coating that seals the disinfectant for up to six months.
HVAC system safeguards were implemented as well – including more than 50 ionizing air filters that help with pathogen reduction to attack and kill viruses and bacteria.
To provide students a hands-free alternative, Artesian water bottle filling stations also were installed, replacing the water fountains around the school.
"We want our students to have the opportunity to learn in the classroom, so we're going to do whatever it takes to help make that happen," said Director of Operations Stewart Crais. "In addition to the upgrades, each classroom is equipped with sanitizing wipes and dispensers and we disinfect student surfaces on throughout the day and on a nightly basis."
