2020 Return to School
Strategies, Practices, and Procedures
La Salle College High School is dedicated to its Mission and the teachings of our founder, Saint John Baptist de La Salle. For over 160 years, La Salle College High School has provided a college preparatory education for young men in the Philadelphia area through a rigorous curriculum that is faith-centered, academically challenging, and designed to prepare young men for the future. We are committed to providing a vibrant learning experience and academic program, a deep sense of community, and curricular and extra-curricular activities that make for a well-rounded student.
In an effort to provide a safe and healthy environment for the entire La Salle community, we have created a Health and Safety Plan based on stacking best practices from among recommendations and guidelines offered by various health organizations. These best practices constitute our detailed effort to open school safely, mitigating the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Our Health and Safety Plan can be adjusted at any time based on local health and data.
The Health and Safety Plan of La Salle College High School was submitted to the Board of Trustees and received unanimous approval on June 26, 2020.
- Promoting behaviors to reduce spread (decisions as to when to stay home, personal hygiene, face coverings, etc.).
- Maintaining a healthy environment (clean/disinfect, ventilation, modified layouts, school vehicles, one-way halls/stairways, meal service, etc.).
- Maintaining healthy operations (master schedule, operating hybrid or full virtual if necessary, non-essential visitor limitations, wellness checks, etc.).
- Planning for someone who gets sick (share with school positive COVID or exposure to COVID, isolation room, communicate to community with confidentiality).
