CBS8 Interviews Head of School About In-Person Learning
By Emilyn Edquilang, administrative assistant
Dr. Gary Krahn shares how LJCDS has been able to stay open during the pandemic.
Below is an excerpt from the CBS8 article, "How one local private school has remained open for in-person learning."
Since indoor classes reopened full-time, Krahn says less than 1% of students have tested positive for COVID-19. Those cases are believed to have been transmitted off-site, and no outbreaks have been reported at the school.
"As of today, we've had no child transmit the disease on this campus," he said.
Krahn credits a number of factors.
For starters, students are closely monitored via daily temperature checks, COVID tests every three weeks and contact tracing through an app.
For every 45 minutes of indoor instruction, students spend at least 15 minutes outside.
But, Krahn said what's really made a difference is monitoring the air around them.
