With sanitized spaces and enforced safety precautions, we're offering full-time, in-person instruction. However, if a student needs to be at home, for any reason, they are able to interact with teachers and classmates, just as if they were in school through: Lions Online. This synchronous, online 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 and Q&A explain how we've designed a learning environment that is healthy and safe for all.
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, are sometimes utilized. Additionally, arrival/departure times and room changes have been staggered to minimize contact between students.
Students are required to sanitize their hands on the way in and out of each class. A sanitizing station is 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.
All surfaces on campus that students touch (including the playground) are sanitized frequently throughout the day. Deep cleaning is conducted each evening. Additionally, essential school supplies have been assigned for individual students’ sole use and any community supplies (such as in the Art Room) are thoroughly sanitized prior to use.
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.
Students and staff are required to take their temperature each morning before arriving at school. Community members are required to stay home if they display any symptom of illness. Parents who are contacted to pick up their child due to illness, must do so within 60 minutes. Our expanded nurse’s office, includes a separate, isolation room.
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:
If there is a change to operational status, parents can expect to receive timely notification.
Lions Online is available to all students when the school is operating in green and yellow levels. Web cams 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) and families are asked to make a three-week commitment when selecting this option.
In education, one size clearly does not fit all.
We're committed to reframing the conversation about the way children learn.
