General COVID Safety Protocol

We appreciate the support and diligence of our families in monitoring the health of each student every day. We continue to adhere to all protocols possible to avoid transmission of the virus, including our current cleaning and sanitizing schedule on campus. Please review this video about TLC's general protocols and strategies to mitigate risk of spreading COVID-19. 

 

Marie Philip and Walden School

Marie Philip (MPS) and Walden School's COVID-19 Reopening Plans have been transitioned to our Pandemic Recovery and Safety Plan, as shared below.

WIth COVID continuing to be present in our communities, this plan is dynamic and not intended to be a final document. Prioritizing safety for our students, staff, families and community, we will continue to share appropriate updates to our plan on this page and note summaries of the adjustment as appropriate. We will also continue to communicate directly with our families.

Our education leaders remain engaged with several governance organizations, including Massachusetts Education Commissioner Jeff Riley, Department of Public Health (DPH), Department of Secondary and Elementary Education (DESE) and Massachusetts Association of 766 Approved Private Schools (maaps), as well as review all regularly updated policies and documentation regarding local and state health guidelines.
