Over the summer, Blackbaud (the host of mySchoolApp) began rolling out their new account system called Blackbaud ID. We had hoped to roll this change out after Thanksgiving break, however, due to a large number of issues being reported with the old account system, we have decided to implement the change immediately.
 
You should have received an email from rollinghillsprep@myschoolapp.com with the subject “Connect to Rolling Hills Preparatory School.” After clicking on the “Accept Invitation” button in the email (seen below), you can either enter the requested information to finalize the account setup and input your password, or you can scroll to the bottom of the page and log in with any google account.
 
If you have any questions or would like any assistance, please let us know at support@rollinghillsprep.org or (424) 570-3398.
 
Please see the images below for examples of the invitation e-mail and the setup process:

What to do if my child is absent from school?


Parents and guardians should notify Ms. Alcott as soon as possible if their student is absent from school. Please call 310-791-1101 or send an email to Malcott@rollinghillsprep.org with the following information:

  • Name of Student
  • Date of absence
  • Reason for absence
  • Anticipated length of the absence, if more than one day

 

If your child is experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 or they have deemed to be a close contact for exposure to Covid-19 outside of school, please contact the school to let us know immediately. A person is considered a close contact if they are within 6 feet of an infected person for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period or they have unmasked exposure to someone who is infected with Covid-19. Below are the protocols if your child has been exposed. 


Exposure Protocol Provided by LA County Department of Health 


  • Unvaccinated Students: Exposed students who are not fully vaccinated must self-quarantine (stay in their home or another residence, separate from others) and monitor for symptoms for 10 days from their last contact with the case while infectious (as defined above). If they remain asymptomatic, quarantine can end after Day 10 from the last date of exposure without testing but they must continue to monitor their health and adhere to COVID-19 prevention precautions through Day 14. Quarantine may end after Day 7 for exposed students who remain asymptomatic, if a diagnostic specimen is collected after Day 5 from the date of last exposure and they test negative via a PCR test, but they must continue to monitor their health and adhere to COVID-19 prevention precautions through Day 14. 

  • Vaccinated Students: Asymptomatic students who are fully vaccinated AND who are a close contact with a confirmed case are recommended to test for COVID-19 as a result of their exposure but are not required to quarantine. However, they should monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days following an exposure.
 
Persons who have recovered from laboratory-confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days AND who are a close contact with a confirmed case are not required to quarantine or test for COVID-19 within a 90 day period.

We understand that you may have questions, so please feel free to contact us and we’d be happy to help.
