    The School requires all students, faculty, and staff to wear face coverings (cloth mask or face shield) while on campus in accordance with guidance outlined by local health officials and the School’s Medical Advisory Group. Starting Monday, August 17, bandanas and gaiters will not be allowed.

    We view these coverings as an important way to support mitigation efforts, slow the impact of the virus on our community, and protect each other. 
     
    Research has shown that face masks with a filter are the safest. When wearing a face mask, the mask must cover the student’s nose and mouth at all times.

    In addition, we believe by offering the option of a face shield, we can continue to support students who need the full visibility of facial expressions to help with the development of language skills and/or understanding social cues. 
     
  • LATE ARRIVAL (STUDENT)

    If a student arrives late to school:
    1. Parent/guardian drives to the Division entrance
    2. Calls the office
    3. A staff member will come out to greet and check in the student. The staff member will bring the student into the building.
    4. The student must have completed the daily temperatre check and health screening and be wearing a face covering.
  • LEAVING EARLY (STUDENT)

    1. The parents/guardians should email or call the school in advance if a student will leave prior to dismissal. 
    2. The parent/guardian should drive up to the Division entrance and call the office.

  • POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST, RETURNING TO SCHOOL

    Anyone who has a temperature of 100°F or exhibits symptoms will not be allowed to attend School, and it is recommended the individual be tested for COVID-19. If someone tests positive for the coronavirus, the individual will not allowed to return to School until the following have been met:
    • 48 hours without a fever (and rash) and
    • Symptoms have improved and
    • 10 days since symptoms first appeared or test was administered and
    • Assessment of whether the individual is safe to be back at school by a licensed medical professional (MD, DO, Nurse Practitioner or Physician Assistant under the supervision of a doctor).
  • RESIDENCE HALL PROTOCOLS

    • Students will follow a “clean in/clean out” system, in which they utilize a hand sanitizer station (located at each entrance/exit) immediately upon entering the building and as they exit.
    • Students who live on campus will not be required to wear a mask/face covering once inside the dormitory; however, they will abide by all other face covering-specific protocols and procedures when outside the residence hall (both on campus and in the community).
    • Students and/or Residential Life staff will see to a frequent and thorough cleaning of reusable masks/face coverings.
    • Day students who have been cleared to attend school are permitted to join any scheduled Residential Life event that takes place outside of the dormitory as long as they have not left campus that day and are not exhibiting symptoms connected to COVID-19. This may involve an additional temperature check before joining the activity.
    • No visitors (including family members) will be allowed within the residence hall after orientation/move-in unless properly cleared and approved by school administration and Residential Life staff until otherwise noted.
    • Boarding students will undergo a daily health screening by a member of the Residential Life Staff to ensure they are cleared to attend in-person classes. This information will be shared with the Upper School office each day.
    • In the case of a positive test of any student or staff member living on campus, all persons living in the residence hall will be subject to symptom monitoring, contact tracing, and/or a quarantine period.
    • Students are able to sign-out if and when approved by all parties involved (Residential Life staff, parent/guardian, etc.); however, students will undergo a health screening upon re-entering the dorm. If the student exhibits conditions which bring his/her health into question, they will be quarantined in their room and their symptoms will be monitored for subsequent days.
  • SICK STUDENTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS

    Students who have the following symptoms -- fever (100 degrees or higher), cough, trouble breathing, sore throat, belly pain, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, dizziness, or just doesn't feel well must be evaluated and cleared by a medical professional before the student can return to school. A physician’s note is required for a student to return to school.

    If a family member is sick, but my child has no symptoms, can they attend school?
    Students may only return to campus when a medical professional has ruled that the sick family member’s illness is not contagious. Keep your children home until you talk to your doctor. If the doctor thinks the family member’s symptoms could be COVID-19, everyone in the household should stay home until testing is done or symptoms are gone. A physician’s note is required for students to return to school. 

    Implementing this process will increase the likelihood that more students are on campus for longer periods of time.
  • VISITORS

    To minimize the the spread of COVID-19, maintain a healthy school environment, and minimize risk for our students, faculty, staff, and our entire community parents and guests will not be allowed at lunch for first semester.

    In addition, we will limit the number, time, and location of parent volunteers on campus for first semester.

    All visitors are required to check in at Frist Hall and fill out a health screening form prior to arrival on campus.
