COVID-19 Policies

There is nothing more important than the health, well-being and safety of our school community.
COVID-19 has presented complex challenges to our school community, but with your hard work and commitment, we have made tremendous strides forward. Keeping our staff and scholars safe and healthy is critical to fulfilling our network’s mission, and we are grateful for your partnership in this effort. The protocols outlined below are guided by two major objectives: maintaining in-person learning by reducing classroom closures due to outbreaks, and living our values even in the face of adversity.

These protocols are our best efforts to keep everyone safe and students in school.


LEARN strongly recommends ALL staff and students get vaccinated against COVID, including getting a booster shot when eligible. COVID vaccinations decrease the risk of getting infected and, more importantly, they drastically decrease the risk of severe illness and death. Click here for Vaccine FAQs to learn more about the benefits of getting vaccinated.



In addition to vaccinations and testing, masking is the best action we can all take to reduce the transmission of the virus and allow us to reduce outbreaks and closures.

At this time, all staff and students are strongly encouraged to wear a mask.

Please note that masks will still be required under the following circumstances:

  1. An outbreak has been identified.

  2. An individual is symptomatic and waiting to be sent home.

  3. An individual has been identified as a close contact to a positive case.

  4. Under the advisement of the health department or lead nurse.


Onsite diagnostic testing will be available for all staff and students who are symptomatic or have had a known exposure to COVID.

All staff and students are encouraged to participate in LEARN’s bi-weekly surveillance testing program.

In addition to proactive surveillance testing, any student of staff experiencing symptoms of COVID may be required to provide proof of a proctored COVID test result upon returning to work or school.

Please contact your campus nurse for questions about LEARN’s testing programs.

COVID-19 Exposure

If your child tests positive or has been exposed to COVID-19 please contact your healthcare provider, campus nurse, and school leader as soon as possible (prior to returning to work/school).

Please review the updated Health and Safety Policy for additional details.
