The health and well-being of our Scholars is always at the forefront of our planning and as such, the following authorities and experts informed our planning are:

Pilibos is fully committed to implementing any and all protocols to mitigate the risks involved with on-campus gathering and instruction. Please read and familiarize yourself with all the protocols below to better understand what measures we will be implementing and what actions and behaviors are expected of our Scholars and families.


Hygiene, Cleaning, & Masks


  • Face masks are optional for Scholars, Faculty, Staff, and visitors. However, we will require masks to be worn on campus if required by federal, state, and/or county public health guidelines. For example, as outlined below, Scholars, Faculty, and Staff who were exposed to a positive COVID-19 case must wear a face mask for ten days following their exposure.
  • Classrooms, hallways, shared restrooms, library, gym, etc. are all considered indoor spaces.
    • If face masks are required, the face covering will need to cover the nose and mouth at all times while indoors.
    • Respiratory etiquette of appropriately covering cough and sneeze will be taught and reinforced.
  • Windows will be opened to allow for natural ventilation.
  • Air purifiers will be used in all classrooms.
  • We have multiple handwashing stations throughout campus.
    • We will continue to teach and encourage proper handwashing, avoiding touching of the face, and appropriately covering coughs and sneezes.
    • Scholars are encouraged to bring their own sanitizer to keep on their desk and in their backpacks.
  • All high use areas, such as restrooms will be cleaned regularly throughout the day.
  • The School will undergo a weekly deep cleaning and disinfecting in addition to our regular cleaning.

Classrooms, Assemblies and Conferences


  • We will utilize rosters in all our classrooms to help identify close contacts in a more precise manner when possible. Persons may be considered to have been exposed to a case (close contact) during the infectious period if they shared the same indoor airspace at school (such as a classroom) with the infected person for 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period.
  • We will continue to provide opportunities for our Scholars to engage in extracurricular activities such as clubs, academic competitions and athletics.
  • When necessary, we will utilize technology for large assemblies, parent meetings, and other events to reduce transmissions opportunities.



The health and safety of our Scholar-Athletes, Coaches and Community remain our highest priority. Below are additional measures we are implementing to help lower the transmission of COVID 19 within our teams, while allowing our Scholar-Athletes to play.

  • Continuing disinfection and cleaning of our facilities
  • Promoting healthy hygiene practices
  • Using team rosters to identify close contacts in a more precise manner when possible
  • Ensure our athletes, coaches, and volunteers are all in compliance with the COVID-19 procedures outlined below.

COVID-19 Procedures


It is important that we implement all State and County COVID-19 guidelines and protocols to ensure the health and safety of our Scholars, Faculty, and Families.


Below please find the COVID-19 guidelines regarding confirmed cases and close contacts:


COVID-19 Forms

  1. Each year, Parents must fill out and sign the COVID-19 Parent/Guardian Acknowledgement Disclosure Form. A separate form must be completed for each Scholar.

  2. We will offer on campus COVID-19 nasal antigen testing to Scholars who were exposed to a confirmed COVID-19 case during school or a school sponsored activity and identified as a close contact. Trained members of our administration will conduct on campus testing.

    • To participate in on campus testing, parents must pre-register and provide consent to test by completing the Primary Health Registration.

    • For additional information regarding on-campus testing, please click here.

  3. If your child tests off-campus, you must submit results online. The test must be an FDA-authorized viral COVID-19 test including PCR or Antigen test. Home tests are acceptable. Forms will not be accepted unless a copy of the test result is submitted as well.

  4. Scholars who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 should complete the Scholar Vaccination Card form and upload a copy of their vaccination card.

Know When to Stay Home

  • Scholars, faculty, or staff should not come to School if
    • they become sick with COVID-19 symptoms
    • they test positive for COVID-19
    • they came into close contact with someone with COVID-19 and are symptomatic 
  • Scholars, Faculty or Staff who test positive for COVID-19 must notify the School by emailing [email protected].

Isolation and Quarantine Guidelines

    • If a Scholar is diagnosed with COVID-19, they must isolate for at least 5 days. Length of isolation depends on symptoms and a negative viral test.

    • A Scholar can return to campus if a negative viral COVID-19 test is collected on Day 5 or later, does not have symptoms, and has not had a fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicine. Scholars must submit a copy of the negative COVID-19 test online prior to their return to campus. 

      • In addition, it is strongly recommended that the Scholar wear a mask indoors for a total of 10 days when around others.

    • If no test is administered, the Scholar must isolate for 10 days, show improvement of symptoms, and have not had a fever for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication.

    • Distance Learning accommodations will be provided to Scholars who test positive for COVID-19. Zoom links and distance learning instructions will be provided by teachers. 

    • Asymptomatic Scholars, regardless of vaccination status, can remain on campus if the following requirements are met:

      • Scholars must wear a highly protective mask around others indoors, except while eating or drinking, for 10 days following the last date of exposure.

      • Scholars must test within 3-5 days following their last date of exposure.

      • Scholars must monitor their symptoms for 10 days following the last date of exposure.

    • Scholars who do not comply with all the requirements outlined above cannot remain on campus and will be required to quarantine at home. However, please note that distance learning will not be provided to close contacts. Should a Scholar quarantine at home, he or she must work with the teacher and Academic Director to make up missing work. 

    • If the confirmed case is within the scholar's household, please note that if a new member of the household with whom the Scholar has direct contact with is diagnosed with COVID-19, then the 5 day quarantine period restarts to the date of last exposure with the newly infected person. 

    • If a Scholar tests positive, is diagnosed with COVID-19 and/or is a close contact of a confirmed case, please notify the school immediately by emailing [email protected].

  • If a Scholar exhibits symptoms or tests positive during the school day, they will be given a surgical mask and accompanied to a preselected isolation space immediately until a parent or guardian can be contacted for pick-up.
  • If a Scholar or any household member tests positive for COVID-19, the School must be notified immediately by emailing [email protected].
  • If the Scholar is sick with similar symptoms as COVID-19 and is absent for 3 or more consecutive days, a doctor's note or documentation of a negative COVID-19 test must be provided prior to the Scholar's return to campus.
  • If a Scholar or teacher tests positive for COVID-19, classroom, athletic, and bus rosters will be used to identify close contacts, we will notify close contacts and their parents via email, voice, and/or text message of their exposure, and provide detailed quarantine instructions.
  • If there are 3 or more cases epidemiologically linked in a specified group in the School over a 14 day period, LA County Public Health may consider that an outbreak and conduct an outbreak investigation. In the event the School is mandated to close down for any period of time in response to an outbreak, we will communicate this information as quickly as possible with all families.
  • We will work closely with LADPH and follow their given directive.
