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.

Calling all volunteers! There are many opportunities to get involved with the Family Association at Rolling Hills Prep, Renaissance and REACH Schools. The Family Association works in partnership with the Schools to support our mission, and all parents and guardians are automatically a member. Even though parents are not physically on campus at this time due to COVID, there are many ways to connect and get involved. We welcome and encourage you to attend meetings and participate in whatever capacity works for you and your schedule. Volunteering is a great way to get to know the Husky community and your involvement in our events and activities, no matter how much time you are able to give, is greatly appreciated. Please let us know your area of interest by completing the volunteer form below.

We are extremely pleased that we were able to host our RHP and Ren families virtually for Back-to-School Night 2021 on Wednesday. A recording of the introductory session can be found below:
 
Last year, we began partnering with COVID Testing Today, an organization that provides onsite COVID testing for our community. Beginning September 1, each Wednesday, students, faculty, and staff will be required to get tested, regardless of vaccination status, to ensure community safety and limit the risk of spread.
 
Athletes are now only required to test on Wednesdays with the rest of the schools (updated on 9/3/2021)
 
All individuals who receive tests must register for their services and provide health and insurance information prior to getting tested. Students who registered for the 2020-2021 school year will not have to register again, as the information will carry over.
 
The guides linked below are comprehensive resources that aim to help our community navigate the first days of school and our approach to COVID throughout the 2021-2022 school year.

Our Welcome Back Guide contains pertinent information for navigating the start of school, such as information about morning dropoff and meals on campus.

The COVID Planning Guide includes information about preventative measures, school policies, and our learning commitments as we continue to confront the spread of COVID. Please note that this information is subject to change with the conditions surrounding COVID. We will continue to keep families informed as new developments and information comes to light.
 
Please refer to the document linked below if you require additional assistance setting up SchoolPass. Additionally, you may reach out to Jeff Peterson, Dean of Students, at JPeterson@RenaissanceSAS.org if you have any issues with the app or setup.

Grade Level and Advisory Announcements
 
Weekly advisor letters for each grade will now be sent out in the Friday Letter each week, beginning this week. We hope that this consolidation makes it easier to access both school and grade-level specific information in one location rather than prioritizing one form of communication or another.
