COVID-19 Considerations

As part of resuming in-person operations for the fall semester, we will be requiring every student to have a complete COVID-19 vaccine to participate in the fall program. A fully vaccinated cohort provides the greatest chance of returning to more normal operations and delivering the richest possible student experience while ensuring the safety of the entire LCWS family. While masking and distancing may continue to be necessary to some degree, having fully immunized students, faculty, and staff will provide much greater flexibility for those measures (in addition to reduced quarantine/testing requirements).
