Covid-19 Information

Our Response to COVID-19

FROM ACTING HEAD OF SCHOOL JULIE SALIT:

I want to assure you that we are closely monitoring the situation surrounding the spread of COVID-19 globally and locally. Please know that the decisions we have made and continue to make are considered carefully and with the best intentions to keep our community safe and healthy. I will communicate decisions as I make them and maintain a summary on this page. Thank you, in advance, for your understanding and patience. 

To help mitigate risk, I suggest that all families continue to follow CDC protocols and monitor their restrictions and recommendations, practice good hygiene, limit travel, and take necessary precautions should you or your child become sick. 
 
As we continue to assess the situation, I am grateful to have the guidance of our exceptional Health Center staff, highly qualified local Health officials, two physicians who have offered their time to work closely with me, and, of course, the CDC recommendations and guidelines. 
 
I thank you for your support and wish you well as we all navigate through this challenging time. 

Please enjoy listening to the Town Hall with Parents on 4/16 where our administrative team provided answers to frequently asked questions.

Summary of Precautions in Place:
 
Academic Schedule/Return to Campus

Online distance learning began for all students on Thursday, March 26. We will maintain distance learning for all students until the end of the term on May 22. We are confident that we can ensure the continuity of our students’ education online until we can safely return to campus in the fall.

All faculty and staff are currently working from home and should continue that until May 18 or further instruction.

Travel
We have asked faculty and staff to restrict all non-essential travel through May 18 and to follow all CDC guidelines and travel restrictions. Student summer service trips departing campus in early June have been canceled.

Campus events

All campus events including Prize Day, Baccalaureate, Commencement, and Reunion 2020 have been canceled. We have also canceled Orientation at Sea this summer. We are hopeful to be able to offer our other summer programs this summer and will determine viability later this spring.  Other events including on-campus rentals and the administration of the ACT and SATs have all been canceled. 

Collection of Belongings / Refunds:

Families may collect student belongings by appointment between May 11 and May 22. We can also offer options to ship or store belongings.  Please make arrangements with Tim Cleary in the Dean's Office at 508.291.8506.
