Information Regarding Covid-19 Vaccination: 

Vaccination for students ages 5 through 11 has received Emergency Use Authorization from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommends students between the ages of 5 and 11 years old receive Pfizer’s COVID pediatric vaccine. 

On December 16, 2021, Mayor LaToya Cantrell and city health officials issued an expansion to its proof of vaccination requirement to include children 5 to 11 years old. NOLA Public Schools (NOLA-PS) fully supports the mayor’s directive and schools’ efforts to encourage students and families to get vaccinated. In tandem with this effort, NOLA Public Schools has coordinated with school leaders to request that the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH) add the COVID-19 vaccine to the list of required immunizations for all students 5 years of age or older by February 1, 2022. The Leadership Team at Lake Forest Charter fully supports this initiative and, upon return to school from the holiday break, will check to ensure your child has been fully vaccinated or has started the vaccination process.  If you have not had the chance to submit your child’s vaccination card, please forward the copy via email to covidvaccination@lakeforestcharter.org or drop off a copy at the front office.

Covid-19 Free Weekly Testing: 

We strongly encourage our Eagle family to participate in the free COVID screening program held weekly on campus as a mitigation strategy to monitor cases in our school. This testing is voluntary but highly encouraged to keep our school and community safe. You will be asked to complete a one-time consent and HIPAA authorization form in order for the test results to be shared with the school. The testing performed will be non-invasive anterior nasal PCR testing. Results will be delivered to you by text or email within 24 hours and the Omega Diagnostics team will follow up with you directly if your child has a positive result. As part of the testing program, the LDH will be providing financial incentives for those who tested. To receive these incentives you will be given a reloadable "digital/virtual" VISA debit card sent to you, as the parent/guardian of the patient, by email from Greenphire.  Click below to sign-up!
