Health and safety


tudent health and safety is a top priority at Lakeside School. The school has established programs and practices that enable us to take care of each other by building community and wellness. We regularly review and update our procedures to meet best practices, informed by the CDC and Washington Department of Health.

Health and safety are our shared responsibility: all members of the Lakeside community have a responsibility to take care of themselves and others.
