Coronavirus & Return-to-School 2020

To help contain the spread of the coronavirus and safeguard the health of the community, Landon has three modes of learning for the 2020-21 school year. Boys thrive here because we design and adapt our program to their needs. You can find more information about our school status and learning plans for 2020-21 below. 


Current Status

 

  • Landon is OPEN with a version of distance learning (Scenario C). Our students are in distance learning for all academic classes, and they are being brought on campus for special programming including character education classes, diversity, equity, and inclusion work as well as grade-level team-building activities and athletic training.
  • Landon will remain in this modified distance learning scenario through at least Friday, September 25.
  • All families must fill out our daily COVID-19 screening assessment on the Magnus Health App for each day their student is on campus.
  • All authorized visitors should enter at Wilson Lane unless otherwise directed.
  • Please check in with security.
  • Mask wearing and social distancing are required.

We welcome prospective families to take a look at our distance learning program, our admissions portal, or reach out directly to our admissions office at admissions@landon.net.


 

Return to School 2020

 

Overview

Return-to-School Scenarios

We have developed three different return-to-school scenarios based on extensive work by members of the RSC. As noted in our guiding principles, and as long as we can do so safely, Landon's preference is for in-person, on-campus school.  With that in mind, we have three plans (scenarios) that have required substantial modifications to our schedule, campus, program, and protocols.

Landon is OPEN with a version of distance learning (Scenario C). This plan includes all academic classes online, and we have combined distance learning with gradually phased in, on-campus, smaller group activities (such as grade-level programming including character education, diversity work, and team-building exercises. A modified on-campus athletics program is also in place.) We will remain in this modified distance learning scenario through at least Friday, September 25. Take a look at Scenario C in the video below!

 

Please send your questions about the plan to landon@landon.net. Current families should contact their division head for specific information.

    Parents on Distance Learning

    These are difficult days...and we are glad Landon is trying to help the boys stay engaged and learn, while sharing what is going on with us parents, who too are learning to cope with the present social distancing and dependence on technology to do our jobs remotely from our offices.  We know this pandemic will end, and appreciate Landon's enthusiasm to make the best of it."

    I'm super impressed by the professionalism and excellent job the teachers are doing. I  know that distance learning is hard for a teacher as well and I have walked in and heard the teachers' lessons, seen some of the work, and I am really proud of the Landon teachers for the super way they adapted to distance learning and how well they are doing."

    The leadership was excellent with communication before school closed, and continues to be doing a fantastic job of getting information to us. The teachers in general have been amazing at checking in on the social-emotional piece with the boys and communication. The workload seems reasonable, and our son doesn't feel like he's getting busy work."

    Landon has truly taken this challenge head on and succeeded. These boys lack for nothing academically. This stellar distance learning program, which I’m sure had to be designed without any precedent, is yet another reason why we’re grateful and proud to have our son be a 10-year Bear."

    Making masks, making a difference 

    Alex ’26 and his mom, Suzete, have more than 1,000 masks to provide health care professionals and first responders with personal protective equipment (PPE) to stay safe and help fight the coronavirus pandemic.
