COVID-19 Communications, Updates
Dear iLEAD Lancaster Families,
We hope you had a restful summer. We are so excited and ready to start an inspiring year of learning!
It was reported to us this week that a student or staff member at our school has tested positive for COVID-19. iLEAD Lancaster is working with the Los Angeles Department of Public Health to follow up with the case and will reach out to all persons who are identified as having had close contact with the case to recommend home quarantine and COVID-19 testing. At this time, we believe your child is not a close contact. Close Contact is when both parties were wearing a mask but within 6 ft of each other for over 15 minutes cumulative. If you are not contacted, it means that your child was not identified as having been exposed to the case.
We will continue to be proactive and complete daily Health screening of students and staff for COVID-19 prior to entering the facility. This will help keep our Educational Setting safe. iLEAD Lancaster has a daily cleaning schedule that is followed and we disinfect high surface areas regularly. We are doing everything we can to keep our learners and staff safe. Please note that all information, including the name(s) of ill persons, is confidential in order to protect privacy.
We continue to encourage families to implement the Big 5 at school AND at home. These include wearing a mask in indoor settings and social distancing whenever possible, as well as washing hands often, covering coughs and sneezes, and disinfecting regularly.
By taking these precautions, we can limit the number of learners and staff who may become ill due to COVID-19, as well as limit the number of learners and staff that must quarantine (one or multiple times) during this school year. The frustration caused by lengthy or repeated quarantine periods is difficult for all of us. So we appreciate everyone’s help to ensure we stay in school.
