COVID-19 Resources Eastside College Preparatory School


We are excited to begin our fall semester with all of our students on campus again, and we are hopeful that we will have a much more normal year ahead. However, the continuing presence of the Delta variant means that we need to exercise caution, and as we navigate our reopening, our top priority is the safety of our school community.

The key to keeping our campus community as safe and healthy as possible is for everyone to get vaccinated. Throughout the year, we have been sharing vaccination opportunities with students and families, including on-campus vaccine drives.

Additionally, we continue to rely on direction from the CDC, the State of California, and our local health department to guide our protocols for reopening and throughout the school year. Given the still-evolving situation with COVID-19, we can expect public health guidance will be updated throughout the school year, and we will update our practices accordingly. The documents linked below describe our current protocols.
