Good news from the Ventura County Department of Public Health: more than 73% of Ventura County’s population ages 12 and up has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine! We continue to monitor COVID-19 case rates locally and updates from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nationally.
Please review the new COVID Guidelines as we approach the opening of school — August 30 for Upper Campus and August 31 for Lower Campus.
Last year, we safely operated with in-person classes, five days a week, during most of the 2020-21 school year. This was accomplished by wearing masks, reducing class sizes, moving to outdoor classrooms, regularly testing students and staff, and following other safety measures. We learned much about how to adjust our program to provide in-person classes and remain virus free.
These lessons continued during OVS Summer Camp 2021 (No COVID!!) and will continue into the new academic year. Please call and connect with either Lower Campus Head of School Laurie Clark or Upper Campus Head of School Craig Floyd if you have any questions or concerns.
