We understand that the return to in-person learning is going to be a significant adjustment for not only the scholars but our families and community. We are asking for collective patience and willingness to work together through these times to ensure we are providing what is necessary to promote scholarly achievement.
As a school, we will maintain communication with our scholars, families, and communities through school messenger, emails, mailings, and our respective social media platforms. If for any reason, contact information changes, please inform us so we can keep you informed.
LAPCS is committed to maintaining a safe, clean, and healthy environment for both our scholars and staff. We have taken the following actions to ensure this as mentioned in our board-approved reopening plan:
Hand sanitizer stations are positioned at the entrance of the buildings. As well as throughout the hallways and classrooms;
Daily cleaning of buildings will continue to occur at night by a third-party service provider. Additionally LAPCS maintenance staff will clean the restrooms, hand railings, and door handles throughout the day. In the event of a confirmed COVID-19 case in the school, LAPCS will consider additional disinfection of the building as directed by local health officials;
LAPCS will continue to monitor the guidance and mandates provided by federal, state, and local agencies to stop the spread of COVID-19.
LAPCS is not mandating scholars to be vaccinated for the 22-23 Academic Year. We do support and encourage our scholars to be vaccinated as the COVID-19 vaccines are the most effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Through our partnership with Union Community Care, LAPCS will be offering our scholars over the age of 12 the opportunity to be vaccinated (with parent consent) at our school health clinic.
Everyone with COVID-19 should stay home and isolate away from other people for at least 3 full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms or the day of the positive viral test for asymptomatic persons). They should wear a well-fitting mask when around others at home and in public for an additional 5 days. People who have symptoms can end isolation after 5 full days only if they are fever-free for 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication and if other symptoms have improved. They should continue to wear a well-fitting mask around others at home and in public for 5 additional days.
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate yourself from others in your home.
You are likely most infectious during these first 5 days.
Wear a high-quality mask if you must be around others at home and in public.
Stay home and separate from others as much as possible.
Use a separate bathroom, if possible.
Take steps to improve ventilation at home, if possible.
Don’t share personal household items, like cups, towels, and utensils.
Monitor your symptoms. If you have an emergency warning sign (like trouble breathing), seek emergency medical care immediately.
Scholars, teachers, and staff who come into close contact with someone with COVID-19 do not need to quarantine if they:
Are ages 18 or older and have received all recommended vaccine doses, including boosters and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people.
Are ages 5-17 years and completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccines.
Had confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days.
Everyone should wear a well-fitting mask around others for 10 days from the date of their last close contact with someone with COVID-19 (the date of last close contact is considered day 0). They should also get tested at least 5 days after having close contact with someone with COVID-19 unless they had confirmed COVID-19 in the last 90 days and subsequently recovered. For 10 days after their last exposure to someone with COVID-19, they should watch for fever (100.4◦F or greater), cough, shortness of breath, or other COVID-19 symptoms.
Those who test positive or develop COVID-19 symptoms should follow recommendations for isolation.

Vaccination, proper masking, routine building cleanings, and hand washing are important mitigation strategies that will be in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. LAPCS has prioritized a healthy and continuous fresh air flow in all of our indoor spaces. Since March 2020, we have made the following changes to our air system to ensure our scholars are in safe, clean, and healthy learning environments: upgraded several of our HVAC Units, installed HEPA Filters in the units, and placed additional portable classroom HEPA Air Scrubbers units for spaces that will require windows to be closed during the fall and winter seasons. The LAPCS leadership team will continue to monitor guidance from our local agencies and PDE regarding the proper ventilation of our indoor spaces.
Please contact LAPCS Principal Amy Ferg via email at email@example.com or by phone at 717-295-7763 regarding the health factors that may prevent your scholar(s) from attending in person. We will continue to monitor the spread of COVID-19 and this may change if state or local guidance is adjusted based on the rate of transmissions within Lancaster County or the state.
As a school, we will maintain constant communication with our scholars, families, and communities through school messenger, emails, mailings, and our respective social media platforms. If for any reason, contact information changes, please inform us so we can keep you informed!
