Fall 2021 COVID-19 Protocols

In consultation with local health authorities, the school has developed the following protocols to support a full in-person learning program. The layered mitigation strategies described below aim to prioritize the building of community along with safety. With measures such as vaccination, masking, symptom monitoring, and ventilation in place, physical distancing need not be emphasized and students can enjoy more freedom of movement and meaningful opportunities to build relationships with peers and teachers.

As new information emerges, the school will regularly review and update this plan. The information below is as of Wednesday, September 8.

*Masks must provide adequate fit and filtration. A well-fit mask covers both the nose and mouth, sits snugly against the sides of the face, and fits securely under the chin. ASTM-certified surgical masks and multi-layer (3+) cloth masks (especially with a filter insert) are sufficient, while KN95 and KF94 masks have been shown to provide additional protection. When eating indoors, masks may be removed but should be put back on when leaving the table or when not eating or drinking.
