If your child was quarantined by the school’s Health & Wellness Office, they will participate in live remote learning.
Lower School (Kindergarten-Grade 5) remote learning typically will begin within 24 hours, as soon as the Health & Wellness Offices confirms the need to quarantine and allotting time for faculty to properly assemble learning materials. Your child’s school counselor will call you the next school day to arrange a time for you to pick up all necessary materials from the Welcome Office.
Upper School (Grades 6-12) students will follow their class schedules and log into live remote learning as early as the day they go home, as soon as the Health & Wellness Offices confirms the need to quarantine.
Remote Learning by Division
If a student is sent home to quarantine, faculty will prepare a personalized mix of interactive hands-on and digital remote learning materials to extend learning into your home, based on the child's development and needs. For the young student’s benefit, it will not be a day of watching classmates learn together on campus. If and when an entire Early Childhood class is sent home, remote learning will be arranged, appropriate to students’ ages.
Kindergarten-Grade 3: If one student or a group of students is sent home, those students will attend a separate class via Zoom with a shorter online day. Applying best practices of remote learning, small groups, mini-lessons and independent learning will form most of the day’s instruction.
Grades 4-12: If one student or a group of students is sent home, those students will attend their standard class with classmates via Zoom.
If an entire Lower School class is sent home, a modified schedule will closely mirror the day’s schedule. For the young students’ benefit, it will not be an entire day online. Live remote learning will apply best practices of remote learning, including small groups, mini-lessons, whole class and independent learning.
