Maret has implemented multi-pronged approach to health and safety in order to welcome K–12 students back to campus for hybrid instruction. In addition, the school is providing on-campus day care for Maret families with young children. Families have the option of keeping their children in our all-virtual program, and the school is prepared to shift instruction between hybrid and all-virtual models as needed. Learn more about our Continuity of Learning plan or join us for a virtual information session!
