Legacy Preparatory Academy announces a sunset of coronavirus-related mandates and thresholds, shifting more decisions about COVID-19 responses to parents and families. The updated policy eliminates mandatory masking, testing, and infection threshold limits connected to COVID-19 in schools. 

 

Mirroring the latest guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other surrounding school districts, LPA recommends:

  • Student(s) stay home from school and isolate for five days following a positive test for COVID-19 or until they are no longer symptomatic. 
  • Students wear a mask for five additional days upon return to the classroom after contracting COVID-19. 

Rather than enforcing these recommended actions at the school, LPA entrusts parents to make the right decision for their families.

 

LPA will relaunch its COVID-19 dashboard to coincide with the start of the new school year. This dashboard displays up-to-date information from the Davis County Department of Health’s tracking of positive case numbers. While the school will no longer conduct its own contact tracing, students and staff who are severely immunocompromised will continue to receive notification if there is a positive case in a school or classroom.

 

The school continues supporting families through online learning accessibility if a student misses school due to COVID-19 illness or exposure. 

 

Verified positive COVID-19 cases

Any student or staff member who has a verified positive COVID-19 diagnosis — through the Davis County Health Department — should not come to school. They will be placed in isolation for 5 days and should be symptom-free before returning to school. They are asked to wear a mask for another 5 days.

 

Quarantine recommendations after a school exposure

If you are exposed to someone at school who tests positive for COVID-19, you can continue to come to school if:

  • You are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 (2 weeks after your final dose), or
  • You had a confirmed COVID-19 infection within the last 90 days.

 

Parents should:

  • Monitor students for symptoms.
  • If symptoms develop, seek testing and keep the student(s) home.
  • Have students wear a mask around others for 10 days.
  • If possible, test 5 days after exposure.

 

For students who have not been fully vaccinated and have not tested positive in the last 90 days, it is recommended:

  • They stay home for 5 days.
  • Monitor for symptoms.
• If symptoms develop, seek testing and keep the student(s) home.
  • If possible, test 5 days after their exposure.
  • After staying home for 5 days, wear a mask around others for 5 more days.

 

If unable to quarantine, it is recommended that student(s) wear a mask when around others, including while at school, for 10 days.

 

Teachers will work with students who are quarantined or isolated at home. Many of the materials will be accessible digitally through Canvas. In the event that a student is sick and cannot receive in-person instruction, a teacher’s first priority will be to the students in class. After meeting those needs, the teacher will work with students who are not in class to help keep them up to speed with their classmates.
