PLEASE NOTE: Click here for travel guidance reminders.

As a reminder, it remains imperative that parents, faculty, and staff contact the appropriate Pandemic Coordinator (Melanie Benefiel, Elementary Pandemic Coordinator; Billy DuMone, Middle and Upper Pandemic Coordinator), immediately if you or someone in your household:

  • Has been diagnosed with COVID-19.
  • Has been tested for COVID-19 and is awaiting results.
  • Has traveled (or is traveling) to a Level 2 or Level 3 country (per the CDC) in the last 14 days.

This is a critical part of keeping our community safe.

Continue to follow the guidance of health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Los Angeles County Department of Health, which include regularly washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, avoiding unnecessarily touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, covering sneezes and coughs with a tissue or a sleeve, and staying home when sick and until 24 hours have passed after a fever, without the use of fever-reducing medicines.

Some of the strategies that we may need to continue include masking, physical distancing, symptom screenings, testing, and vaccinations. Students are expected to adhere to our guidelines. If a student cannot consistently follow the mitigation strategies, they may be asked to leave campus.

Distributed Learning Information

Wildwood School will resume in-person instruction on campus for the 2021-2022 academic school year. No offsite/virtual learning alternative will be provided unless there is a health-related accommodation that needs to be made or other school-wide safety decisions that have to be made (i.e. quarantining requirements, health and safety of a student/family member, or fire/smog safety days.)

Wildwood has implemented a host of health and safety mitigation strategies to help keep our community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wildwood School Mitigation Strategies


This year we were so thankful for our incredible faculty and administration. Teachers pivoted effectively; advisors supported and connected our kids online; and the administration did a heroic job keeping on top of the latest medical information. We’re grateful to be a part of such an amazing community.  - Parents of Middle and Upper School Students
