COVID-19 Prevention Plan for THE Leadership Academy

We are working hard to make sure our campus is as safe as possible for staff and students during these unprecedented times. Our COVID-19 Prevention Plan is based upon the latest guidance received from the San Diego County Office of Education, the San Diego County Health and Human Services Agency, the California Department of Public Health and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This Prevention Plan reflects procedures and protocols that will be followed when our school is open to in-person learning for students and also procedures and protocols that will be followed if our school is open for limited services.

Our Site Prevention Plan is posted on our website and can also be found HERE. It was last updated 12/1/20.

Let's Work Together!

  • Please do not send your child to school if they have any "cold-like" symptoms and please notify us immediately if your child has been exposed to anyone who is COVID-19 Positive.
  • Please screen your child for symptoms of COVID-19 before bringing them to school each day. We thank you for your attention to this very important process

    • Specifically, please screen your child for any of the following symptoms associated with COVID-19: cough, fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, or diarrhea.

  • If your child has any of these symptoms, please do not send your child to school and notify the school of the absence and any symptoms experienced.

  • Additionally, in the event that your child has been exposed to anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the previous two weeks, do not send your child to school and notify the school that the student has been kept home for this reason. The child will not be able to return to school until permitted by the School in compliance with direction from the San Diego Health & Human Services Agency and the San Diego Public Health Order.
