Back to school NOV 01 2021

With the first fall school break and the perspective of travel, please find below the requirements and coming back to school protocols:

  • Quarantine: No quarantine is necessary for vaccinated individuals and the CDC now recommends quarantine for non vaccinated people who travel outside of the state or the country.
  • Coming back to school: Because of the lower number of cases, we are bringing flexibility to our re-entry protocols. All families are asked to upload before Sunday OCT 31 at 12pm  either:
    • a proof of vaccination (for students 12 and older) or
    • a dated picture of a negative rapid test administered within 24hrs of back to school.

Rapid COVID tests are relatively inexpensive (about $25 for two tests) and readily available at any local pharmacy. Please note that no rapid test will be available at school to meet this requirement, so please make sure to prepare adequately for your child to be able to come back to school on schedule, on Monday NOV 01.

Vaccination remains the strongest protection against the spread of the virus. Internally, we are working hand in hand with the Staff association towards a 100% rate of vaccination of our personnels, ahead of what we foresee to become soon  a requirement from State authorities.

2021 2022 Travel

LFSF is following the most current domestic and international travel guidelines from the CDC.

We would especially like to bring your attention to the following paragraph:

If you are not fully vaccinated (...) after you travel:

  • Get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel.
  • Even if you test negative, stay home and self-quarantine for the full 7 days.
  • If your test is positive, isolate yourself to protect others from getting infected.
  • If you don’t get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • Avoid being around people who are at increased risk for severe illness for 14 days, whether you get tested or not.
  • Self-monitor for COVID-19 symptoms; isolate and get tested if you develop symptoms.
  • Follow all state and local recommendations or requirements.
