COVID Protocols for 2022-23

To ensure the safety of our staff and students, LEAD Public Schools continues to monitor COVID-19 and establish appropriate protocols and procedures at our campuses. For the 2022–23 school year, LEAD’s COVID-19 protocols are focused on providing a safe and orderly environment while also minimizing absences and maximizing time on task for students in order to accelerate student learning.

As the CDC and our local health department recommends, LEAD maintains a comprehensive approach to preventing the spread of COVID-19, including:

  1. Washing and sanitizing hands 
  2. Maintaining social distancing of three feet when possible 
  3. Keeping and improving ventilation in our buildings
  4. Not allowing anyone in the building who has COVID-19
  5. Wearing face masks at student/family and staff discretion

Student Safety Protocols

  1. Any student who receives a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis should NOT REPORT  to any LEAD Public School (LPS) campus or extracurricular activities.
  2. If a student is showing symptoms at school but does not have a confirmed COVID-19 diagnosis, please send them to the main office.
    1. The student will receive the option of testing for COVID-19. School-level nurses will make the determination to return the student to class or ask for them to be picked up.
