La Reina High School and Middle School welcomed all students back to campus on October 26.

Excitement and enthusiasm were in the air at La Reina as all students were officially welcomed back to campus on October 26.  On campus learning at La Reina consists of a full 5 days per week of classroom instruction. “The sense of joy among the girls was palpable … everyone is so happy to be back at La Reina,” said Tony Guevara, La Reina President. The La Reina at Home Program via Zoom will continue to be an option for families who choose to continue distance learning. 

Keeping our students, faculty and staff as safe as possible is La Reina’s top priority.  La Reina’s Return to Campus Plan, approved by the county, meets or exceeds all health and safety guidelines.  Principal Maggie Marschner shared, “At La Reina we are prioritizing our students’ emotional wellness and continuity of their education with this return. We provide our girls a safe and secure environment, allowing them to thrive.”

In preparation for a successful return to campus, faculty and staff, in consultation with La Reina’s Return to Campus Task Force, have discussed all aspects of the educational experience. Teachers, staff, and administration are committed to providing strong, rigorous and relevant learning experiences for our students, while supporting their social and emotional growth.

The school’s administration has limited the number of passing periods, extended time between classes for sanitizing of surfaces and staggered hallway release creating additional social distance.   Daily temperature checks are required before students, faculty and staff enter the campus.  Masks which cover the nose and mouth and fit under the chin are mandatory.

La Reina provides a transformative educational experience for girls and continues to accept applications for the 2020-21 school year.  Interested families may register online for La Reina’s November 8th Open House which will be on campus.  For other opportunities to visit La Reina register for a Tuesday Zoom tour, and Regent for a Day program.
