With sanitized spaces and enforced safety precautions, we are thrilled to open our doors for full-time, in-person instruction. However, if a student needs to be at home, for any reason, they can interact with teachers and classmates, just as if they were in school through our new virtual classroom: Lions Online. This synchronous, hybrid model allows students at home to learn right alongside their peers at school!

We invite you to explore this section of our website. The detail pages, movies, and Q&A explain how we've designed a learning environment that is healthy and safe for all. Whether online or in person, we can't wait to welcome our lions back to school.

Please be advised the following policies and procedures may change before the opening of school, based on guidance from state and local officials.

What to Expect:

Physical Distance.

Our traditionally small class sizes uniquely position us to consistently achieve six feet of physical distance. Desks are now spaced apart and alternate learning spaces, staffed by faculty, may be utilized. Additionally, arrival/departure times and room changes will be staggered.

Physical Distance

Hand Washing

Students are required to sanitize their hands on the way in and out of each class. A sanitizing station will be located outside every classroom door and antimicrobial soap is available in all restrooms. Further, supervised hand washing breaks have been added to the daily schedule.

Hand Washing

Sanitized Spaces. 

All surfaces on campus that students touch (including the playground) will be sanitized frequently throughout the day. Deep cleaning will also be conducted each evening. Additionally, essential school supplies will be assigned for individual students’ sole use and any community supplies (such as in the Art Room) will be thoroughly sanitized prior to use.

Sanitized Spaces

Face Masks. 

All employees and students in grades K–12 are required to wear a face covering while at school. Students may remove masks for eating and drinking purposes. It is each family’s responsibility to supply and clean student masks.

Face Masks

Daily Temperature Checks. 

Students and staff are required to take their temperature each morning before arriving at school. Community members should stay home if they display any symptoms of illness. Parents who are contacted to pick up their child due to illness, must do so within 60 minutes. We have expanded our nurse’s office to include a separate, isolation room.

Daily Temperature Checks

Operational Plans

If there is a government mandate or outbreak of illness in the coming year, we are prepared to smoothly transition between in-person learning, in-person learning with modifications, and a closed campus with robust distance learning. Since Lawrence has campuses in both Cuyahoga and Summit Counties, and our students come from many communities, we will consider a variety of factors in relation to movement between levels, including:

  • National and state guidelines
  • County level status, according to the Ohio Public Health Advisory System and the county of residence for the majority of Lawrence School students.
  • Student and faculty illness and absence levels.
  • Local health department guidance.
  • Guidance from Lawrence School’s Medical Advisory Board

If there is a change to operational status, parents can expect to receive timely notification.

Parents who are not comfortable with their child returning to campus, can at any time throughout the year, opt to enroll in Lions Online. This synchronous option is a hybrid classroom available when the school is operating in green and yellow levels. Web cams will allow students to join their class from home, just as if they were in school. Lions Online is different from full-school Distance Learning (RED).
