With the latest announcement from the governor, we will likely start the school year with distance learning, until Los Angeles County is removed from the watch list. We begin much later than most schools, and since we are scheduled to start school in September, we may be able to avoid distance learning and begin school with a hybrid model.
Our hybrid model, uses the following schedule:
This staggered schedule allows for no more than 2/3 of the classes to be on campus at one time. This makes it easier to monitor and manage the students that are on campus.
If you choose to keep your child at home, students may participate in distance learning rather than come on campus. Parents will make this decision for their child.
Students will be expected to participate in classes and attendance will be taken daily.
We are looking to use an outside company to provide lunch. They will meet all health requirements. There will be no food preparation on campus. This includes food brought from home and allowing any staff member to reheat any lunches for students.
All students will need an electronic device as a learning tool: Chromebook, laptop, iPad. Smartphones are not considered an effective learning device.
All grades will begin. Thursday, September 10, with Distance Learning until cleared by the LA Health Dept.
Every student’s temperature will be checked upon entry.
Masks must be worn by all staff and students while on campus.
6’ distancing will be used and the standard for students on campus
Routine cleaning will take place in the classrooms, restrooms and high areas of contact.
Students’ arrival on campus will be determined by the grade they are in. We will be staggering the entry times to minimize contact with one another. If you have a child in multiple grades, bring the student with the earlier start time along with the other siblings. No need for you to wait for the later start times.
Daycare will be open from 7:00-8:00 in the morning
Students will be dismissed and directed to the classroom at 8:00am.
It will be open after dismissal until 6:00pm.
Only parents who have signed their child up early for daycare will be allowed to attend. No drop-ins will be allowed until further notice.
All these programs will be suspended until further notice.
We believe Trinity will provide one of the best educations for your child whether in class or with distance learning. Our teachers provide an unmatched education for your child and there is not a drop in the quality of education. Therefore, it is not necessary to provide a tuition discount for state mandated distance learning or a hybrid schedule. We are a self-sufficient entity, so we do not have a larger organization or the government behind us to provide the necessary funds to help us weather financial storms. If you are encountering financial difficulties, please contact the school office to learn more about tuition assistance options that might be available.
