Summer School FAQs

Can TLC/LCP guarantee my child will not get COVID-19 if attending summer school?
We have several policies in place to safeguard the health and welfare of the TLC/LCP families while on campus. These policies reflect the guidelines and requirements of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. While we will take every precaution to reduce risk, it is not possible for any entity to guarantee that a student or staff member will not be exposed to Covid-19.

What will be the cleaning protocols during the summer session?
High-touch surfaces will be cleaned multiple times per day. (Doorknobs, restrooms, light switches, etc.) The campus will receive a thorough cleaning each night including all classrooms, offices, restrooms, and common areas.

Overall, what is TLC/LCP doing to create a healthy and safe learning environment for children this summer?
In addition to our rigorous cleaning protocols, TLC/LCP will be following the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health on standards for keeping students safe. Additionally, wellness checks will be taken daily for all staff and students before being permitted on campus. Students will be required to wash their hands upon entering the campus. Students will be instructed throughout the day to practice and engage in healthy hygiene habits.

Will the children and staff wear face coverings?
Yes. Staff is required to wear masks at all times while on campus.  Students are required to wear face coverings when indoors but are not required to wear masks outdoors.  Please pack an extra mask and make sure face coverings are clearly labeled with your child’s name.  Extra masks are available from the office for $1.00.

What will be the health and safety policy for students and staff?
To reduce the spread of germs and groups on campus, visitors will be restricted from campus. Only TLC/LCP teachers and staff will be with students throughout the school day. Upon arrival at school, wellness checks will be administered to all staff and students. As well, we will implement our already rigorous cleaning, sanitization, and hygiene practices, including frequent hand washing and thoroughly cleaning high-touch surfaces and items inside and outside the classroom.

Will outside lunch service by Choicelunch be available?
No, our outside lunch service will not be offered during summer school. As part of our on-campus safety efforts, we will be significantly limiting outside visitors during the school day. Parents will need to provide a packed lunch from home as well as snacks and drinks. Parents may not drop lunches off in the office during the school day. Food delivery services are not permitted.
