2020-2021 Return To School Plans


 2020-2021 RETURN TO SCHOOL PLANS
 

All decisions continue to be based on the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations
and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health guidelines, and as such, are subject to change.


Guidelines for the Potential Reopening of Campus
OUR PRIORITIES REMAIN THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR COMMUNITY, COMMITMENT TO OUR MISSION, 
AND THE ONGOING ACADEMIC AND SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING OF OUR STUDENTS, FACULTY, AND STAFF.

Westmark School is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all its students, parents, employees, and guests. 
We have developed the following Pandemic Response Plan (PRP) for the 2020–2021 school year to guide our decisions regarding the reopening of our campus to students, faculty, and staff.

We strive to balance our mitigation policies with the known benefits of children experiencing in-person learning at school. 


RETURN TO CAMPUS PLANNING 2020-2021

Whether in-person learning on campus, or online during distance learning, Westmark is committed to delivering our hallmark individualized instruction in a safe learning environment, addressing the academic, physical, and social-emotional needs of all students in Grades 2-12.
