Re-Opening Plan

2021-22 School Year | COVID-19 Updates

2021-22 Return to Campus!

We are so excited to be back on campus in the new school year! We will provide in-person instruction 5-days per week at every school and grade level, for every student. We believe that an in-person educational experience is best for students as long as it is safe to do so. We are following all guidelines in order to continue to provide a safe environment to maximize the benefits of being in person. Our plans align with the current state and public health guidelines for the fall. 
In an effort to provide the safest possible environment for our students and team members, KIPP SoCal will be requiring all team members to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, show proof of vaccination by October 29, 2021 and are mandating regular testing for all team members. We are also offering and strongly encouraging regular COVID-19 testing for all students –– helping us in early identification of cases and prevention of the spread of the virus within our schools, our classrooms, and beyond our school community (if you haven't yet signed your student up for testing, please do so here).

Moving forward, we will not offer distance learning as we did this past school year, and are excited to solely focus our efforts on an in-person approach. In the rare case that your student is unable to attend school in-person due to personal health complications, please contact your school leader to discuss eligibility for an independent learning program for your child.

We know families will have many questions about what school return will look like, what safety protocols will be in place, and more.  Please review on-going updates in the School Year FAQs.

Multi-layered approach to safety

KIPP SoCal continues to subscribe to the 'swiss cheese' pandemic defense theory, which recognizes that no one single intervention is perfect at preventing the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Each layer has holes, but when practiced together, collectively all will help to provide the greatest level of protection. We believe this is how we can, personally and collectively, mitigate the pandemic’s spread. The best way to keep yourself AND others around you safe is to practice these strategies together.
