Dear Lab Parents, Faculty and Staff,

CHANGE OF PLANS FOR MONDAY AND TUESDAY MARCH 16 AND 17
Due to continuing revision of recommendations from respected health experts, we have decided that faculty and staff will plan for distance education at home on Monday and Tuesday and will not be coming on campus.

The main castle building at Reservoir will be open from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm on Monday to pick up any student devices or necessary items that were not picked up today. Access instructions will be posted on the front door.

HEALTH REPORTING TO LAB
As we continue our thinking and planning for the next few weeks and beyond, we ask that all of you continue to report any illnesses of your own or a member of your household to our school nurses:

Adriana van Breda (Foxhall) Adriana.vanbreda@labschool.org  

Ruthanne Neary (Reservoir) Ruthanne.neary@labschool.org

  1. Please report any communicable illness of any kind of yourself or a member of your household – please provide the nature of the illness and where in the DMV you are located.
  2. Please report any reason for quarantine or isolation of yourself or a member of your household – either self-directed or directed by a health professional – please provide the nature of and reason for the quarantine and where in the DMV you are located. 

This information is critical as we make judgements about potential re-opening of school.

TRAVEL
As you or your family members consider whether or not to travel, either domestically or internationally during this period of Lab’s closure, be reminded that Lab may require a 14 day self-quarantine before returning to campus.

ARMANDS CREDIT
Anyone who purchased lunches from March 13 through April 3 has had full credit for those purchases credited to their accounts. Those credits can be applied during checkout the next time a lunch order is placed.

Please be careful, practice careful social distancing if you are around others and stay safe and healthy!

Sincerely,
Katherine Signature Firstname
Katherine Schantz
Head of School
