SCHEDULING
 
Our Lower School schedule will remain a traditional, M-F, 5-day rotation with a balance of homeroom and specialist instruction happening throughout the week. Specialist teachers will rotate to each classroom to reduce the use of shared spaces.

The Middle and Upper School is adopting a new, modified schedule that supports our values as a learning community and will help us meet the following goals during this challenging time: meaningful, rigorous, engaging academics; close community connections; a broad, balanced learning experience; seamless, clear transitions between in-person and remote learning, prioritizing safety for all in the community. 
DROP-OFF PROCEDURES

All Lower School drop-offs will take place at the regular drop-off area in front of the play area from 7:30-8:15AM. Students will be greeted at their car for temperature checks and health screenings before washing their hands and starting the day.
 
All Middle & Upper School student drop-offs—with the exception of Grades 5 & 6 who will be dropped off at the flagpole turnaround in front of the main office—will take place in the Rusack Parking Plaza by the gymnasium. All students and staff will undergo temperature checks and health screenings before washing their hands and receiving a hand stamp.
COVID-TRACING TEAM
 
In addition to preparing to COVID test faculty and staff, we have established a COVID tracing team through Johns Hopkins University training. We will also have a Health Coordinator on-site for the school year.


REMOTE LEARNING

Laguna @ Home is designed to connect, engage, and educate students when it's not possible to safely be on campus. Committed to fostering the community of learning that we are known for, and to ensuring the strength of our remote learning program, a team of faculty examined and refined the program during summer 2020, should it be required again.

THE TEACHERS!!!!! They are energetic and inspiring and bring a welcome enthusiastic spirit into our home each day that is fun to witness. We are so fortunate to have such caring and brilliant staff at Laguna!

Upper School Parent

This is tough all around and we think Laguna has really done a fantastic job making sure our children continue to learn and that their education is not slipping because of this terrible situation. Thank you so much to all the faculty and staff for everything you are doing to keep educating our children.
