  • COVID Policy for 2022-2023

    Updated Aug. 30, 2022
    From the beginning of the pandemic, The Barstow School has put the safety of our community at the forefront of every decision we make. In keeping with our practice of following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Barstow  has adopted the following policy regarding COVID-19 for the 2022-23 school year.

    We recommend vaccinations for all who are able to receive vaccinations. A person who tests positive must: 
    • quarantine for five days from symptom onset.
    • wear a mask for ten days from the date of symptom onset.
    Barstow remains a mask-optional campus. This policy may be adjusted as community conditions change. For more information related to COVID exposure guidelines, please visit the CDC link below.

From Our Counselors

During uncertain times, anxiety can increase or arise in our children and in ourselves. When your children ask questions about COVID and what happens next, knowing how to answer can be difficult. We've developed resources for families to help guide these conversations. They each recommend a few basic, but important steps: take the time to talk, to listen and to reassure.
