The safety of our employees, students, families, and visitors remain TLS's overriding priority. We monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidancefor hygiene and cleaning, and we
have accordingly increased frequency of cleaning, adjusted sanitizing protocols, added hand sanitizing stations, and adapted air filtration systems as we have prepared to be Healthy at TLS.
CLEANING AND DISINFECTION PROTOCOLS Enhanced cleaning protocols are in place on campus for high-risk/high-touch areas (door handles, light switches, handrails, interior doors, door push plates, common spaces). Increased cleaning will be performed in restrooms and in common areas. Hand sanitizer dispensers are located at the main entrance and exit points for buildings on campus.
COMING TO CAMPUS As COVID-19 evolves, The Lexington School continues to monitor the situation and to remain current on recommendations from national and state resources. We are committed as a school to do our part in the community to slow the spread of COVID-19 and to reduce the potential risk of exposure to our students, workforce, and visitors.
Each morning, employees will access a link to the campus entry questionnaire, which includes the questions listed below. This questionnaire must be completed on the employee’s internet-connected device (smartphone, tablet, computer, etc.) each day the employee seeks to access campus and answers will reset nightly. The questions are as follows:
Face Masks - While indoors, all students (grades 1-8), faculty, and staff are required to wear masks. We will be taking extra “mask” breaks during the school day. Outdoors, when socially distanced, masks may be removed. All employees must bring and wear a personal face mask while on campus; the school will have a limited supply available in case one is needed.
Safe Social Distancing - If social distance cannot be outdoors, masks should be worn. Indoors, face masks should always be worn when interacting with another person (children in Kindergarten/M3 are exempt from this policy).
Meetings -Where feasible, meetings should be held using online tools. When allowed, in-person meetings are limited to the restrictions of gathering sizes for space available, assuming individuals can still maintain six feet of separation for physical distancing requirements. Departments should rearrange chairs and tables in meeting rooms to support physical distancing practices between attendees. While on campus, employees are encouraged to communicate with colleagues as needed by email, phone, or other available technology.
The mission of The Lexington School is to provide an education of the highest quality to students in preschool through middle school. In a structured, nurturing environment, The Lexington School seeks to instill integrity, a life-long enthusiasm for learning, and a strong work ethic.
