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.
Dining Services plans to continue its current Select and Go meal service plan for students, faculty and employees during Opening Days after which time, vaccinated persons will be permitted to take meals indoors.
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.
Regular and constant monitoring of those employees working on campus is 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.
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 email@example.com in order to initiate follow up contact tracing when applicable.
We have been a semi-closed campus since March 2020 and made the decision early on to suspend facility use and rentals, with the exception of a limited number of summer programs in 2021.
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).
