Dear Lakehill Community:
I am pleased that Lakehill Preparatory School plans to offer a health-informed, in-person semester this fall. It will reflect our commitment to promoting public health while fulfilling our fundamental mission of educating young minds.
Thanks to the thoughtful and deliberate efforts of our re-opening team, our cautious optimism about the fall has developed into a path forward. Their work has given me confidence that we can do this safely, and we will continue to plan and prepare in the weeks ahead. We now have the opportunity to begin a new journey together, equipped with the very best guidance and ideas from medical experts, government leaders, and innovative teachers and staff.
Because of the ongoing challenges of COVID-19, the semester ahead will look and feel differently than anything we have experienced before. Our plan to conduct an in-person semester relies on basic public health strategies including social distancing, wearing face coverings, washing hands frequently, and symptom screening. We are also continuing to evaluate other options, should a change of plans become necessary. The pandemic won’t change our commitment to the members of our Lakehill community.
I know there will be many questions as we continue to prepare for the year ahead. We will continue to update you weekly, and will release our comprehensive plan, based on current guidelines, by July 17. We look forward to being with you all again soon.
