Health Protocols

Creating and maintaining a safe campus that supports the health and welfare of all members of our community is our priority. To do so, we require the support and cooperation of all. Each member of the LJCDS community plays a critical role in keeping our community safe and preventing the spread of COVID-19. Our goal is to understand where the virus is present and where it isn’t within our community. Therefore, it is the mild symptoms that are of utmost importance to identify in children attending school.

On-Campus Visitors/Guests

To help reduce the number of people on campus, parent/guardian and guest visits will be limited. Staff members may continue to work remotely as their responsibilities allow. 

 

Physical Distancing

Seating/desks will be spaced 6 feet apart and facing forward when feasible
 
All community members should adhere to physical distancing at all times. Please respect personal space. Avoid any unnecessary contact, including hugging, kissing, shaking hands, holding hands, etc.


Face Covering

Face covering is required at all times, indoors and outdoors, while on campus. This requirement is . If an individual does not have a face mask, one will be provided by the school. 

Face coverings may be removed when an individual is alone in a private office, or when eating or drinking in a break space with proper physical distancing. 

LJCDS will provide each faculty, staff and student with two reusable cloth masks (3-ply with a filter pocket).
 

Types of Face Coverings

, when face coverings are properly fitted over the nose and mouth, they prevent the wearer from dispersing potentially infectious aerosols and droplets into the environment where they can contaminate surfaces or be inhaled by others.

Masks can be made of various materials only if it is form-fitting. Acceptable masks include cloth masks, disposable non-surgical grade masks and KN95 respirators. Unacceptable facial coverings include bandanas or similar loose face coverings, and masks with an exhalation valve are not allowed as they do not protect others by preventing the dispersion of aerosols.


Temperature checks 

We ask all families to perform daily temperature checks of their child before coming to school each day. Students with a temperature of 100.0 °F or higher should stay home.



Health screening questionnaire

Before arriving at school, families, faculty and staff are required to submit a brief questionnaire daily to assess the symptoms of illness and exposure to COVID-19. The importance of having accurate and timely data on the spread and impact of disease cannot be overstated, as these data will be critical to safely reopening and keeping students in school. Daily data is ideal to monitor the spread of the virus across groups and places.

On-campus testing

Testing will be required before students, faculty and staff arrive on campus for in-person teaching or learning. Testing will be coordinated through . Our provider for testing will be managed by Joy Hardison, M.D., and her team at Healthtopia Clinics in Encinitas.

Type of Test
LJCDS will test all faculty, staff and students using the , which provides automated and objective results in 15 minutes. The test employs immunofluorescence technology used with Sofia and Sofia 2 to detect nucleocapsid protein from SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 virus in nasal swab (NS) specimens. 

The test was designed and is manufactured by Quidel in San Diego, California. 



 
Testing Fee/ Insurance Coverage
An individual’s insurance should pay for the testing. Currently, most insurances are waiving patient costs for COVID-19 testing until further notice. If insurance does not pay for the testing, the school will absorb the cost. At this time, testing will be available for faculty, staff and students only. 

Frequency
Every student, faculty member and staff must be tested the week prior to joining the on-campus community, be it at the beginning of the year or whenever they begin on-campus learning.  Throughout the year, students, faculty and staff who have been away from the campus for at least two consecutive weeks will be required to take a test before rejoining the community. 

During the school day, individuals on campus who display COVID-19 symptoms will have the opportunity for immediate antigen testing on campus and use of telemedicine with our provider to assist in their medical care. We will evaluate the prevalence of COVID-19 in San Diego, and may require testing on a more regular schedule to increase the safety of our community. 

Protocols 
If a member of the community tests positive for COVID-19, all students, teachers and staff members in the cohort and/or members who have had close contact with the individual will be notified immediately. Learning and teaching will occur remotely. 

When there is a COVID-19 infection, the school will:
 
If the individual who tested positive is a student who has a sibling or siblings, the sibling(s) will likely have been in close contact with the student. If it is determined that someone has been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case:

Quarantine and contact tracing

The Lower School world language room LS6 has been converted into a second nurse’s office. This will be the designated isolation room available if a student or employee develops COVID-19 symptoms while at school. Parents, guardians and caregivers will be notified to pick up the child. Employees will go home immediately. 

A trained LJCDS staff member will reach out to the individual who contracted COVID-19 to identify other individuals they may have been in close contact with. In the event of infection, contact tracing will occur, CDC protocols will be exercised and cohorts will be quarantined.

The purpose of contact tracing is to promote public health efforts. The names of positive people will not be disclosed to the individuals with whom they may have had close contacts.
 

Cleaning


LJCDS uses cleaning and disinfectant products approved for use against COVID-19 on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) “List N: Disinfectants for Use Against SARS-CoV-2.” “List N” labeled products are effective against emerging viral pathogens. 

We are making efforts to select products on List N with asthma-safe ingredients, such as hydrogen peroxide, citric acid, or lactic acid. As best we can, LJCDS will try to avoid products that mix with peroxyacetic (peracetic) acid, sodium hypochlorite (bleach), or quaternary ammonium compounds (Quats), which can cause asthma.
