Spring Break Update:
When we return from Spring Break, the week of April 12th will be a virtual-only week for all, with noon dismissals April 14-16 (Wed-Thurs-Fri) for K-6, and parent-teacher conferences in the afternoons for K-5. We thank you for your understanding and support of these important changes to our school calendar.
Traveling & “Buffer” Week
Given current travel advisory mandates, and knowing that families are traveling over the break, we will be fully virtual the week of April 12th. According to the current advisory from the California Department of Public Health and LACDPH, all individuals returning from outside the state or country are required to complete a 10-day quarantine. If you are leaving California and your child will be returning to campus on April 19th, you will need to be home as of Thursday, April 8th in order to complete the mandatory 10-day quarantine. Regardless of your method of travel out of the state/country, Laurence will require a negative PCR COVID test taken within 72 hours of your child(ren) returning to campus. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Please note that the purpose of this virtual week is to keep our community healthy and safe. While we will continue to offer our hybrid-remote program for those families that wish to remain virtual due to health and safety reasons, this option is not to be used to extend a long weekend or to take a vacation. Please recognize that teaching and learning in a hybrid format is challenging as our teachers are required to continually toggle between virtual students and on-campus students. Thank you for your adherence to these guidelines. We want to remind you that our ability to keep our campus open is incumbent upon every member of our Laurence family remaining vigilant.
