Continuity of Learning (COL)—2020-2021
To remind us of our responsibility to each other and of all we can accomplish collectively, our theme for 2020–2021 is Standing Together. Even if we must remain six feet apart physically, we commit ourselves to finding ways to deepen our connections, bring joy to learning, and grow as a school community.
Continuity of Learning by Division
Students come to campus five days a week. Monday–Thursday from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. and on Friday 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Students are come to campus four full days per week and learn virtually from home on Wednesdays.
All students, faculty, and contracted workers who come to campus participate in our weekly COVID-19 testing program. Additional health and safety protocols can be found in our Return-to-School Guide.
COL at Home
Families can opt to have their children learn 100% virtually. The school works with families who opt to have their children in the COL at Home program to ensure the very best delivery of the academic program.
Schedules by Division
Class schedules were designed with all learners in mind and with a goal of balancing time on screen and off. Important opportunities to build community and provide student support—including advising, convocation and assemblies, office hours, K-12 Wellness, and extracurriculars—are built into the schedules of each division.
Lower School COL at Home Schedules
Should we need to close campus and have all students return to all-virtual learning, Lower School students will follow the COL at Home schedules below. (Middle and Upper School students will continue to follow the hybrid schedule.)
COL Support & Resources
Our Student Support Team has compiled resources to help families navigate the challenges of learning during the pandemic and are happy to answer parents' questions. Learn more by clicking the link below.
We survey students, faculty, and parents regularly to ensure our COL models are meeting our goals. Our Director of Institutional Research guides these efforts, and you can summaries of our data collection on our Institutional Research page.
