COVID Vaccine Requirements
COVID-19 Employee Vaccination Policy
Synergy Academies' COVID-19 Employee Vaccination Policy is aligned with the Los Angeles Unified School District's COVID-19 vaccination requirement that all District employees were required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 no later than October 15, 2021, and explicitly applies to co-located charter school employees and other adults who provide services on District property.
Resolution to Implement the Los Angeles Unified School District's Policy Requiring COVID-19 Vaccination for Eligible Students
Synergy Academies adopted the LAUSD student COVID-19 vaccination policy in alignment with District requirements for co-located charter schools. Per this policy, the COVID-19 vaccination will be required for all students 12 and older at the start of the Fall 2022 semester.*
Vaccinating your child is the best way to protect them from getting COVID-19, and Synergy encourages you to get your child vaccinated as soon as possible. The COVID-19 vaccine is now available for all children ages 5 and older. Boosters are also available for everyone age 12 and older.
*LAUSD adopted revised policies at their Board meeting on December 14, 2021, and Synergy's Board adopted an amendment to their September 25, 2021 resolution to reflect this change. The current policy states that all students age 12 and older must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by the start of the Fall 2022 semester.
**LAUSD adopted revised policies at their Board meeting on May 10, 2022, and Synergy's Board adopted a second amendment to their September 25, 2021 resolution to reflect this change. The updated policies state that COVID-19 vaccine requirements for students will align with the State of California's COVID vaccine requirements for students, which will take effect no sooner than July 1, 2023.
