Student FAQ

 

How long will on-campus classes or on-campus events be canceled in response to COVID-19?

We defer to the leading public health and medical agencies such as the CDC, WHO, and LA County of Department of Public Health in making that decision.  Along with the Board of Regents and all other Prelacy Schools, we are working to ensure a safe and successful learning environment.  We highly recommend that you stay updated by reviewing this webpage dedicated to COVID-19 information and updates; also follow Pilibos on our Social Media outlets. 

 

Will our Class Retreats be canceled?

Circumstances surrounding COVID-19 remain extremely fluid. We are closely monitoring the situation, both globally and in regions with affiliated experiential learning programs. Based on the current guidance of the CDC, and erring on the side of caution, we have postponed the 7th grade trip to CELP Camp, the 8th grade trip to DC/NY, and the Senior Retreat. New dates are not available just yet.  You can find up to date travel information on the CDC’s website.

 

I have plans to travel abroad during Easter Break. Should I still travel?

You will need to make decisions for your own family about Easter break travel. For international trips, please refer to the list of foreign travel advisories published by the Centers for Disease Control. If you do intend to travel over spring break, even just domestically, please let our School Administration know. Note that you may be asked by Public Health authorities or School Administration to self-quarantine upon your return to Los Angeles and the re-opening of the Schools.

Please fill out this form to inform us of your travel plans.

 

I'm feeling sick. What should I do?

If you or anyone you know is feeling sick, it is best to stay home, self-isolate, and call your healthcare provider immediately.

 

What can you do?

Pilibos encourages everyone to protect themselves from illness, such as the cold, flu, and COVID-19 by following the recommended actions:

 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (Sing Happy Birthday song 2 times).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick (6 feet is the recommended distance).
  • Clean and disinfect objects and surfaces frequently.
  • Cover mouth and nose with a tissue or elbow when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • If you are sick, please call your doctor to see if you should self-quarantine or make arrangements to be tested.
  • Stay at home, away from others, until at least 24 hours after the relief of an elevated fever without the use of fever-reducing medicines, and seeking immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe.
  • Keep yourself up-to-date on what the California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) suggest.
  • Discuss your child's questions and concerns with them and help them practice good prevention measures. Depending on your child's age, some helpful resources may include: "Just For Kids: A Comic Exploring The New Coronavirus" and "How to Talk to Kids About Coronavirus".
  • Make sure you have a supply of all essential medications for your family.
  • Make a childcare plan in case you or a caregiver become sick.
  • Make arrangements about how your family would manage if there is a school closure.
  • Make a plan for how you can care for a sick family member without getting sick yourself.
  • Remember that self-care for all is very important!
