Continuity of Learning (COL)—2020-2021

COL banner

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

Kindergarten–Grade 4
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.

Grades 5–12
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.)
