Dear Laurence Community,

In light of the low positivity rate on campus paired with the promising decrease in both the LA County COVID positivity rate and case counts, we are delighted to begin welcoming fully vaccinated parents back to campus in February!  We acknowledge that these past two years and the recent Omicron surge have been very challenging and frustrating for all of us. Your patience, love, and understanding during this challenging time are truly appreciated. 


*Please note that our plans are subject to change if public health conditions warrant.*


Updated Protocols 

As always, the health and safety of our community is a paramount priority. In anticipation of parents' return to campus, we want to remind you of important updates to our protocols.  

  • All parents/guests are required to wear upgraded (KN95 or N95), well-fitting, non-cloth masks with a nose wire at all times while on campus, per updated LACDPH recommendations. 

  • All parents/guests on campus must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. 

  • We strongly encourage parents/guests to obtain a COVID-19 booster shot before returning back on campus. If you have not already done so, please send proof of your COVID booster, if eligible, to healthoffice@laurenceschool.com.
