Good afternoon, Lodi High Students, Parents, and Families,
This is Principal Auerbach with a brief message regarding next week’s return to campus, as well as a few updates about campus procedures and norms.
ID Cards: As students return to campus, we want to remind you to have your Lodi High student ID card ready to show to a campus supervisor or administrator before entering at one of our front gates OR student parking lot. This is essential for student safety, as we must ensure that only Lodi High students are on campus during the school day. If you have not had your student ID picture taken, we will have make up photos on Monday, April 12th, and will call students to our North Gym—next to the Girls’ Locker room—to have their picture taken at that time.
Student Drop Off and Parking: Parents/guardians may drop off students along Pacific Avenue in front of the school so long as they are not impeding the pathway of our busses. Student drop off is not permitted in our North Student Parking Lot, as our driveway can only accommodate one-way traffic coming into the school. Also, there is no student parking allowed in our Staff Parking Lot along the track or in the Zion Church parking lot across the street from the school.
Parking Permits: We have parking permits available in our North Administration Office now; they will be available to pick up before school, during lunch, or after school next week with a completed application form; no fee will be charged the 2020-21 school year.
Parking Lot protocols: Students must enter the parking lot and turn off their vehicles upon parking, as our school borders our neighborhood. Once students have turned off their vehicles, they will need to move into the campus as well; congregating or loitering will not be permitted before school, during lunch, or after school at any time to ensure the safety of all students.
Off Campus Cards: ALL juniors and seniors are eligible to receive an off-campus card for the remainder of the school year. If you are interested, check your district email for the form that we sent out this morning, which requires parent permission to leave campus. At this time, grades and attendance will not impact your eligibility. Once you have filled out your Google Form, you may pick up a temporary Off-Campus Card from our North Administration office next week during lunch or after school. Only students who have their pass will be permitted to leave campus during lunch at the flag pole or from the student parking lot. Last year’s passes will not be accepted. Lastly, students may only carpool with members of their immediate household.
Masks: ALL individuals on a school campus must wear a mask at all times. In order for our school to welcome students back this next week, everyone must wear a mask correctly while on campus. We anticipate this being new, and possibly challenging to many of our students, especially for an extended period of time. However, this mandate allows us to welcome back our students and is essential for us to keep kids in school.
Social Distancing: All students must maintain 3 feet of social distancing while on campus and in a classroom. While eating and not wearing a mask, students should maintain at least 6 feet of distance to ensure their safety as well.
Distance Learning Changes: Beginning Monday, students will no longer be able to change schedules to accommodate requests to move from in-person to Digital courses. At any time, if you feel that you would prefer to move to Distance Learning and remain at home for the duration of the school year, please contact your counselor and request to be a Digital Learner. We will do everything that we can to keep your student safe and allow you to receive instruction from home in your current classes, should you choose to do so. If, at any time, your student must quarantine at home, we will continue to provide instruction remotely until your student can return to the classroom.
COVID exposures and protocols: If a student or staff member tests positive for COVID-19, we will complete thorough contact-tracing to discern who may have been exposed to the confirmed positive case. Someone who has been exposed must have been within 6 feet of the laboratory confirmed positive person for a total of 15 minutes within a 24 hour period of time. All individuals exposed, as well as the positive case, would then quarantine at home for 10 days and may return so long as they do not have any symptoms associated with COVID-19.
Allergies: If your student has seasonal allergies, please know that many of the symptoms are similar to those of COVID-19. If possible, please obtain a doctor’s note that clarifies what your student’s baseline symptoms entail. If students display symptoms at school, they will be escorted to a designated area for parent pickup, as students/staff with symptoms may not be on campus at this time. If you do not have a current note from your student’s doctor and your student has symptoms while on campus, they will need to either get tested for COVID-19 and return once symptoms are gone with negative test results, OR after they have quarantined at home for 10 days and no longer have any symptoms.
The information that I’ve described may be new for many of us or difficult to understand fully. If you have any additional clarifying questions, please check out our website for updates or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can assist and support you and your student.
Thank you so much for partnering with us at Lodi High to make your student’s education, health, and safety a priority. We look forward to seeing many of you on Monday morning; remember that class starts at 7:20—our bell schedule is available on our website as well.
Adam Auerbach, Lodi High Principal
