OCS COVID-19 Safety Plan

 
Safety is of prime importance for Our Community School. Please see below for OCS's COVID-19 School Guidance Checklist and OCS's COVID-19 Prevention Program (CPP). We are also strictly following the COVID-19 protocols from the LA County Department of Public Health. You can see them attached below and the T1 is posted at the school site. 
 
During the 2020-21 school year, OCS had a variety of educational models to ensure our students and community were safe. These included: distance learning, small cohorts, and eventually a hybrid model in  April 2021.
 
In the 2021-22 school year, OCS is excited to welcome all students back to campus for quality academic and social-emotional learning. In order to keep our students and staff safe, there are a number of protocols that are in place. These details can be found in our COVID Prevention Program (CPP).
