2020-2021 School Year

6/12/2020

Dear Lakeview Families,

As you know, Lakeview’s administration and Board of Trustees have been actively and strategically working together in our response to COVID-19. We recently established a COVID-19 task force consisting of eight individuals, including several medical professionals from the community to develop guidelines to allow for a safe start of the 2020-2021 school year for in-person, on-campus teaching and learning. In consultation with the task force, we are pleased to announce that Lakeview Academy will open as scheduled on August 19, 2020. Prior to school resuming, the school will be implementing new health and safety procedures to protect the school community, based on three principles: Protect, Distance, and Disinfect. Technology, including automated temperature screening solutions, will be evaluated in the coming weeks in an effort to create the safest environment possible. In addition, Lakeview is preparing a robust contingency plan for shifting to blended learning in the event an interruption occurs during this unprecedented time. The overall goal of these efforts is to resume classroom learning while providing a safe and healthy environment for all Lakeview students and personnel.

Lakeview Academy is basing its preparations and guidelines for operating on information and guidance currently available from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), The World Health Organization (WHO), Georgia Dept. of Health (GDH), the local medical community, and other health experts. In addition, the School is in communication with independent school governing associations and national, and regional schools and districts.

We appreciate that you will have many questions over the coming days and weeks. Starting mid-July, Lakeview’s website will contain Back-to-School pages, FAQs, and full details of our fall operating plan. It will be updated as new information is made available. Lakeview Academy will also send out communications twice per month related to health & safety/opening plans to keep the community informed.

Jay Kilroy,
Chair, Board of Trustees

Head of School
