COVID-19 School Status

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 in Hybrid Learning with about half the students on campus in outdoor classrooms and some indoor spaces, and the other half working remotely. Grades 3-5 are on campus full time.
  • All who enter campus must fill out a COVID-19 screening assessment. If you do not know what assessment to complete, please reach out to the office or person you are visiting.
  • All authorized visitors should enter at Wilson Lane unless otherwise directed.
  • Please check in with security.
  • Hand washing, mask wearing, and social distancing are required.

 

Learning Plan

 

Overview

Learning Plans 2020-21

We have three different learning scenarios for the 2020-21 school year. 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. When that is not possible, we will turn to one of two other scenarios. One of the main challenges many schools are facing is space.  At Landon, we are fortunate to have considerable space on our 75 acres, both indoor and outdoor (25+ tents), in which we can hold full classes on a daily basis. Hand washing, mask wearing, and social distancing are essential ingredients of health and safety protocols no matter the learning scenario.

    Parents on 2020-21 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 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."

    "We think it is wonderful that we are getting the boys back to campus. We feel the COVID protocols that Landon has put in place make this a very safe endeavor.  Our son has been grateful to be with his peers and start making friends as well as in-person connections with his teachers."
