Dear NlCP Community:

NLCP cares about the health and safety of our entire community including our scholars, their families, and our teammates. While COVID poses a health risk – particularly for those who are unvaccinated – being out of school also poses significant risks for our scholars. We have all experienced the negative effects that virtual learning has caused, and the data/research continues to pour in about the academic, social, and emotional deficits resulting from the loss of learning. Last school year, NLCP was able to remain open to our scholars while public schools across the city remained closed. We did this through rigorous health and safety protocols. Because of the protocols we had in place, NLCP remained open during the entire 2021-2022 school year. We are now at another critical point of this virus. NLCP is committed to doing everything we can to remain open for our scholars during this critical time.

Below are the additional steps we are taking to ensure the safety of our school community while we continue to serve our scholars in person: 

  • Shortened school day schedule with longer class times to lessen passing periods
  • Grab and go lunches are available daily at dismissal
  • After-school activities will be virtual,
  • All staff meetings and professional development will be virtual
  • All staff will receive upgraded N-95 masks
  • Students will be required to use school distributed masks to ensure added/reliable protection
  • Increased cleaning schedule and staff
  • Dedicated contract tracers at both campuses, and we are maintaining conservative quarantine policies vs. reducing
  • Distributing wipes to all staff to wipe down desks after each class period
  • On-site weekly vaccination clinics (currently every Tuesday, 3-6pm at Christiana; working to add Collins from 12-3pm)
  • Refreshing classroom and office air filters
  • Maintaining cohort scheduling for contact tracing (changes can be made to move students for second semester)
  • Offering a variety of health and wellness supports for our team and scholars
  • Ordering rapid covid tests to make available on campus when needed to determine need for additional testing
