We are a school that is passionately focused on Outdoors Every Day, Authentic Learning, and Community First. Last year, we added a new priority: Safety First. For the foreseeable future, every decision we make must still be guided by this commitment.
We also remain committed to our vision, mission, and values
, especially our newest value, Joy;
and many of us are working hard through the summer to plan for the very best possible experience for our students while prioritizing safety. The reality is that our fall term, and perhaps the full year depending on any shifts in the pandemic, may be different. However, we are beginning with the assumption that our job is to make the year as normal as possible, so our students can experience all that our campus has to offer.
The guidelines shared within the pages of this plan reflect current public health guidelines and standards. We anticipate that these may change, as greater percentages of the population become vaccinated and COVID-19 cases continue to decline; we may update certain sections, but please know that any and all major changes will also be shared by regular email communication. We continue to look forward, with optimism, to a new academic year. It will be great to have everyone back on campus, together, in person.
Until then, I hope you will have the opportunity to rest, reflect, and recharge.
Head of School and Foundation
