COVID-19 UPDATES

LAS Students will be returning to campus shortly. Please be reassured that all families continue to have the choice of sending their children to physically attend a school or remain to utilize the virtual platform. All classes will be taught in a blended format (simultaneous teaching) addressing both those students on campus and those remaining at home attending classes virtually. For those attending school on campus, it is imperative that they strictly adhere to our SOPs.
The following SOPs are in place:

All faculty and staff have been vaccinated against Covid-19.

All visitors to campus must show proof of Covid-19 vaccination before entering.

Everyone on campus is required to wear a mask both inside and outside of the classrooms.

There is no food available on campus. Students must bring their own snacks, lunch, and refillable water bottle.

During PE class, students will be allowed to remove their masks, as long as they maintain a safe social distance from others.

If your child isn’t feeling well, please let us know, and keep him/her at home.

Please take a few moments to view the SOP video below.
