List of 3 frequently asked questions.

  • Will masks be required for outdoor activities?

    Masks are required for Lower School and Middle School students outdoors. For Upper School students, masks are optional outside when physical distancing is possible. Unvaccinated individuals are highly encouraged to wear a mask outside.
  • Why are vaccinations not required when colleges and universities are requiring them?

    Given the protocols we have put in place, including ventilation and CO2 monitoring, we can mitigate the spread of COVID on campus. We will continue to evaluate the possibility of requiring vaccinations for all people on campus.
  • If my child is vaccinated, do they need to wear a mask at school?

    Per San Diego County health orders, masks are required indoors for all students regardless of vaccination status. Because Lower Schools are ineligible for vaccination at this time and not all Middle School students are eligible for vaccinations, we have used our discretion to mandate mask-wearing outdoors for Tiny Torreys through Grade 8 students to keep our students safe.

  • What are the COVID-19 testing protocols for students?

    Testing is mandatory for all unvaccinated students and employees. Students will test every two weeks, student-athletes every week and faculty/staff will be tested every week. Testing is available and optional for vaccinated students and employees.
  • How will my child know when to get tested bi-weekly?

    Each division will manage the testing schedule to ensure unvaccinated students (and vaccinated students who opt-in) get tested bi-weekly. Parents/guardians do not need to manage their child’s testing schedule.

  • Will you live stream parent/guardian events?

    We will not live stream or provide hybrid options for parent/guardian events that take place in person. However, the school will provide a summary of the event in written or video format after the event.
  • Will parents/guardians be allowed on campus when the school year starts?

    Yes, during drop-off and pickup parents/guardians can be on campus outside. Please limit the visit to no later than 8:30 a.m. during drop-off and between 2:45–3:30 p.m. during pickup. Parent/guardian volunteers are also welcome but are required to be vaccinated. The school will provide opportunities for parents to attend events that take place outdoors.

  • What is the travel policy?

    We are following CDC guidelines for domestic and international travel, which include a quarantine period and testing for unvaccinated individuals. Please review and adhere to these guidelines. LJCDS will be monitoring compliance to the best of its ability.
  • Can my child order food to be delivered on campus?

    Lunch is provided to students in kindergarten–Grade 12 every day. At this time, food deliveries via DoorDash, GrubHub, UberEats, Postmates or other restaurant delivery systems are not allowed during the school day. Athletes may order food delivery to be dropped off at the table adjacent to the security booth in the Genesee parking lot between 3:30–4:30 p.m.
