Campus Reopening

Planning for the Reopening of Campus

Marymount is committed to delivering a robust academic program while diligently adhering to the guidelines and restrictions placed forth by the CDC, and the Los Angeles County and California Departments of Public Health for the collective health and well-being of our community.

Once it is deemed safe to return to campus, Marymount is planning to utilize a hybrid model. Two grade-level cohort groups will alternate between one week of classes in-person (Monday - Thursday on campus with Friday as a remote day), and one week off-campus remote learning.



List of 6 items.

  • Mandatory Face Coverings

    are required at all times (except while students are eating)
  • Daily Temperature Checks

    upon arrival to campus
  • 6-feet Social Distancing

    at all times
  • Hand Sanitizing Stations

    available throughout campus
  • Pre-Campus Health Questionnaire & Temperature Check

    daily before arriving on campus
  • Dedicated Pandemic Coordinator

    on staff and on campus daily


Social Distancing While on Campus

To properly support social distancing throughout campus, the following will be implemented:
  • One-Way Traffic Flow: There will be a campus floor map that will be outlined with signage and floor arrows. 
  • Classroom Locations: We will only utilize classrooms that allow for social distancing, including using the Dining Room, Pavilion, Cantwell, DRC and Chapel for classroom space. 
  • Social Distancing Reminders: We will need the support of our families to remind their daughters to remain socially distanced amongst their friends. We will also encourage students to social distance at all times while on campus.
  • Lunch Delivery: SAGE will deliver pre-packaged lunches to students so that we can ensure proper social distancing takes place during lunchtime. 
Please Note: At this time, access to campus will be limited to students, faculty and staff. Parents will be permitted to drop their daughter(s) off but must remain in their vehicles.




Health & Hygiene Protocols

In order to help mitigate the spread of the virus, the following has been implemented:
  • Pandemic Health Coordinator: Marymount has hired a Pandemic Health Coordinator for screening/monitoring those on campus and the execution of COVID-19 protocols on campus.
  • Pre-campus Health Questionnaire & Temperature Check: All students will be required to fill out a daily questionnaire and temperature check prior to leaving their home.
  • Mandatory Face Masks Required: All students, faculty and staff will be required to wear a face mask while on campus. 
  • Daily Temperature Checks: All students, faculty and staff will have their temperatures checked as soon as they arrive on campus. 
  • Disinfect Each Class After Use: All classrooms and high-touch areas (restrooms, doorhandles, etc.) will be thoroughly sanitized after each use. We will have additional cleaning staff on site to support these efforts. 
  • Hand-sanitizing Stations: Will be available throughout the campus, and every classroom and office will have disinfectant wipes for use. 
  • Isolation Rooms: We will have separate isolation rooms available if a student feels ill while on campus. Until a parent can come and pick up the student, she must remain in that room. 












Class Schedules

Marymount will be implementing a hybrid school model. Whether students are learning from campus or from home, class times, lunch and breaks will remain consistent. 
  • Students will be grouped into two grade-level cohorts and will alternate weeks on campus:
    • One week of classes will be in person (Monday-Thursday on campus, with Friday as a remote day), and one week off-campus remote learning. 
    • All classes will be streamed live on Zoom, whether in campus or at home.
  • While all of our students are invited to return to campus for in-person classes this fall during their weekly rotation, we will still provide a robust educational experience for all of our students whether they choose to return to campus or not. 




Athletics, Conservatory Arts Program, Clubs, and Extracurricular Activities

  • All athletic activities will be guided by local health official requirements and governing bodies. 
  • For updates regarding Athletics, please CLICK HERE.
  • All experiences will be designed for both in-person and virtual capacities. 












Bus Services - Tumbleweed

Marymount will continue to partner with Tumbleweed for the 2020-2021 school year:
  • All students and drivers will maintain social distancing while entering, seating, and exiting the bus.
  • All students and drivers are required to wear their masks at all times, covering both their mouth and nose.
  • Buses will be sanitized and disinfected after each route. 
  • Windows will also remain open.




SAGE Dining

Marymount will be providing daily pre-packaged lunch and snack options for students to purchase through SAGE Dining.
  • All food ordered will be delivered to designated areas, with social distancing in place. 
  • Meals will be pre-packaged and pre-ordered.
  • All SAGE Dining staff will strictly follow all public health department guidelines.
Note: If students choose to bring their own lunch, there will not be access to a microwave or refrigeration.










School Policies

In light of the recommendations mandated by the CDC and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, we are temporarily amending Marymount’s attendance policy while classes are in-session on campus. Student absences due to illness will be considered excused absences until further notice within reason.

Students with any signs of flu-like symptoms should be kept home from school. If your daughter has a fever of 100.4 or over, she should not come to school until she is fever-free for 24-hours without the use of fever medication
 
Faculty are aware of this temporary attendance policy modification. Teachers will ensure that students who are ill will have the opportunity to make up any missed work.


School and Family Trips

  • Travel notices and advisories across all countries worldwide are changing daily. Please refer to the CDC website and check all travel advisories prior to any trip you may be taking and practice usual health precautions when traveling. 
  • In compliance with CDC recommendations, we ask all families, faculty, and staff traveling to CDC Level 2 and 3 areas, or who are knowingly exposed to COVID-19, to observe a 14-day self-quarantine period at home and to obtain medical clearance before returning to school. The quarantine period should begin the day after leaving one of these locations. Please follow the guidance of health officials.
