2020-21 School Year Covid-19 Planning

Our primary goal here at Folsom Prep is to do what we can to keep our students and staff healthy while still allowing students the opportunity for social interaction with both their teacher and peers. The guidelines and protocols are taken from the CDC recommendations for schools as well as other local agencies. We have implemented most of these protocols during our summer camp which has given us the chance to really see them in action and modify them as needed.


  • School will resume in-person on August 12th
  • A traditional schedule will be followed (full-day, M-F)
  • Class sizes are limited to 15 students
  • To the extent possible, students will remain in the same groupings throughout the day.
  • All classrooms will have desks, including kindergarten. This allows us to spread them out and face the same direction.
  • Parents will sign a form stating they will not send their child to school with any of the conditions listed. We will verify daily they are aware of these conditions.
  • Students will be dropped off at the entrance to the school.
  • Students will wash their hands before proceeding to their classroom.
  • Proper handwashing will be taught and reinforced frequently.
  • Visitors to the school will be limited and screened prior to entering the school.
  • Recess and lunch will be staggered to reduce the number of students out at one time.
  • Students will be socially distanced at the lunch tables.
  • Tables will be sanitized between each group of students.
  • Sanitizer will be available in each of the classrooms, the front desk, and outside.
  • Students are encouraged to bring their own water bottle for drinking.
  • Student supplies will not be shared between students. Supplies that must be shared will be sanitized between use.
  • Wearing masks while inside the building will be required. Students should bring their own mask with them to school.
  • Students will not be required to wear them when they are outside playing.


As we all know things have rapidly changed over the past few months: flexibility and perseverance have become key attributes for all of us. We will continue to monitor what is happening in our community and make our decisions accordingly.

Please feel free to contact the school with any additional questions you may have.

Virtual Classrooms 2020-21

Students at home will have the ability to join in and watch live lessons happening within our classes on-campus. Students will be able to interact with the teacher during lessons, participate in classroom discussions and complete their work alongside their on-campus peers. All lessons will be recorded and archived so students also have the option to watch on their own time. In addition to participation in the core subjects such as Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies, students will have access to participate in our specialty classes. We offer Art, Spanish, STEAM, Technology and more. Outside of the live sessions students can connect with their teachers on a one-on-one basis as needed. Our small class sizes will allow teachers to meet the needs of students both in school and at home. Please contact us if you are interested in signing up for our Virtual Classrooms.

What Do Our Parents Say?

This is a wonderful school that supports kids from the inside out. The teachers and administrators my son had during his middle school years were intuitive, inspirational and truly excellent in their roles. Opportunities for excellence in academics and character were presented daily. The smaller class sizes allowed for individual development like no other. This is really a gem in our community that our family is so grateful for."

I’ve been at this school since preschool. Everybody here is great and super nice. The education here is awesome and the teachers are great too! I highly recommend this school to anyone who’s new to the area or looking for a private education for their kids. I love this school and I love the fact that 7th and 8th grades are learning at a high level and that there are advanced classes for every grade, including Kindergarten.”
