What will your students’ learning look like in the fall?

How will we open? 

We are opening up the school year with distance learning. The teachers will do an excellent job in educating your kids. This will be a fruitful time for them and they will be ready when they return to school. All the information needed to log in will be given to you on Wednesday, September 9th. 

How many days will students be on campus?

We are set to open up with Distance Learning. As soon as we are given the green light to open, we will have all the students on campus, so when we do open, we will return with students on campus every day, 5 days a week.

Update: HYBRID MODEL - We have eliminated this plan as a possibility when it comes time to reopen. This schedule, though a good one, is no longer needed in our plan to return. 

What if I do not want my child 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.

What can I expect with Distance Learning?

Students will be expected to participate in classes and attendance will be taken daily.

Will there be a hot lunch program on campus?

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.

What will my child need for Distance Learning?

All students will need an electronic device as a learning tool: Chromebook, laptop, iPad. Smartphones are not considered an effective learning device.


WHEN IS THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL?

All grades will begin Thursday, September 10, with Distance Learning until cleared by the LA Health Dept.


Textbook and supply pickup – On Wednesday, September 9, you can come on campus between 9:00am and 5:00pm to pick up your child’s textbooks and anything else the teacher will be providing for you at this time for Distance Learning. Please drive around to the back parking lot and park on the playground. You will be screened and have your temperature checked before proceeding to the classroom. Please be sure to wear a mask and social distance while on campus. Only one person will be allowed in the classroom at a time to pick up the books and supplies.

First day of classes – Thursday, September 10 – The first day of class will be with Zoom, your teachers will be in touch with you and send you the information prior to the first day of class. This will be a shortened day to get the students oriented.

K-4 Pickup and Drop off of school work: Friday, September 18th is the first day to drop off and pickup schoolwork for the following week. This will be the schedule during Distance Learning until we can return to classes. Drop-off and pick-up will be every Friday between 10:00am-5:00pm.

What are the expectations for health, safety, and cleaning?

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.

Arrival on Campus

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.

  • K – 2nd will begin classes at 8:40 and may arrive after 8:30
  • 3rd – 5th will begin classes at 8:30 and may arrive after 8:20
  • 6th – 8th will begin classes at 8:20 and may arrive after 8:10


Programs & Tuition

Daycare Program

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.

Sports, Choir, Music, and PE Programs

All these programs will be suspended until further notice.

Will tuition be discounted with Distance Learning?

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. 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.
