HIGH POINT GRANTED WAIVER TO REOPEN CAMPUS FOR K, 1ST, and 2ND  GRADE IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION


We are pleased to announce that on October 22, 2020 the Pasadena Public Health Department (PPHD) and California Public Health Department (CPHD) approved High Point’s waiver to reopen its campus for kindergarten, 1st grade, and 2nd grade in-person instruction. Our 3rd-8th grade students will continue to benefit from a robust remote learning program. This favorable decision is based on High Point’s ability to fully adhere to the PPHD’s and state of California’s school re-opening protocols. Ultimately, PPHD and CPHD determined High Point’s extensive health and safety guidelines and policies as outlined in our “Guidelines For a Safe Return to Campus: 2020-2021 Academic Year'' fulfilled the requisite school reopening protocols.

High Point’s administration, faculty, Board of Trustees, and school reopening Think Force team worked diligently and collaboratively to facilitate a return to campus by following protocols that meet, and in many cases exceed, the standards set forth by the PPHD and the CPHD in order to ensure a safe campus for our students and employees. We wish to express our gratitude to the dedicated team leadership at the PPHD and CPHD who are being careful and prudent when it comes to optimizing the health of our school communities.
