Welcome to the Employee Guide for returning to campus during COVID-19. Below, you will find information about policies, procedures, and expectations for all employees of The Lawrenceville School along with resources and avenues for support during this challenging time.
Community Suggestion Box
Do you have a suggestion or an idea to improve the Lawrenceville experience? We are interested in hearing from you! Thoughts, ideas, feedback, and suggestions are welcome. The Community Suggestion Box is an anonymous tool and a way to communicate your ideas to Human Resources who will share the information and partner with select Administrators to evaluate each suggestion carefully. It is open to all with the sole purpose of improving the quality of the Lawrenceville experience and for building a sense of community among staff, faculty, administrators, and students.
Regular cleaning and disinfecting of clothing and personal objects both on campus, or traveling to and from campus can help reduce the transmission of SARS-COV2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, between persons who are pre-symptomatic, symptomatic, or asymptomatic.
As of March 26, 2022, masks are no longer required at any time for vaccinated individuals although all diners should wash their hands thoroughly before and after eating.
In accordance with Head of School Steve Murray’s March 26, 2022 letter the School will no longer conduct COVID surveillance testing, but will offer rapid testing to symptomatic individuals, including students, and employees seeking guidance for reporting to work.
Regular self-monitoring and reporting of symptoms by all students and employees working on or off campus has been an essential measure in limiting the spread of SARS-COV2, the virus responsible for COVID-19, between persons who are pre-symptomatic, symptomatic, or asymptomatic. Please review attached recommendations regarding isolation for individuals who have tested positive for COVID-19, or quarantine for those who have been exposed to infected individuals.
Although the requirement for on-campus employees to carry and regularly scan a POM reading device has been lifted, it is vitally important for any employee who tests positive for COVID-19 to report it promptly to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to initiate follow up contact tracing when applicable.
We have returned to an open campus; therefore, employees now have full access to all indoor buildings including athletic facilities such as the arena track, swimming pool, fitness center, and squash courts.
A temporary change to the Lawrenceville School’s Vacation Policy and Vacation Run-Off Policy will be effective July 1, 2021 and will remain in effect through September 30, 2021. This temporary change permits employees greater flexibility in the use of their vacation time while being equitable to all employees due to the pandemic we have experienced during the course of this year.
Employee Assistance Program (Counseling)
The Lawrenceville School provides you and your adult (18 and older) household members, including children away at college, access to the Penn Medicine Princeton Health Employee Assistance Program (EAP) at no cost. Everyone faces difficult challenges from time to time and Penn Medicine Princeton Health EAP professional counselors will help you sort out the issues.
Your lifeline for navigating the healthcare and insurance maze is only a phone call away. HealthAdvocate service is provided, free of charge, to employees covered through one of the School’s medical plans; this service extends to the employee’s spouse, dependent children, parents and parents-in-law.
With telemedicine you and your family members (up to 9 household dependents) can have easy, on-demand doctor visits in minutes with the use of your smart phone, tablet or computer 24 hours a day. Visits are convenient, private and secure without ever leaving your home, your job or wherever you are. Avoid the inconvenience of traveling to the doctor’s office and waiting in an office. Consider using telemedicine after normal business hours, nights, holidays, and weekends, when your primary care physician is not accessible, for prescription medication requests or refills, for non-emergency medical issues and questions, or when you’re traveling and need medical advice or guidance.
To access telemedicine, you must be enrolled in one of The Lawrenceville School’s medical plans (POS 500, HSA 2000, or HSA 2500).
