First Release: July 15, 2020   |   Updated August 12, 2020


These are the procedures that will be implemented that directly affect the 4-5-6 classrooms:

  • 4-5-6 students are required to wear face masks (shields - only with permission), but teachers will allow for “mask breaks” when the risk is low (i.e. when students are outside, socially distanced, or alone).
  • The 4-5-6 classrooms have their own sink for handwashing. A touchless soap dispenser will be installed.
  • The 4-5-6 students will use the bathrooms next to the gym. They will be the only cohort using those facilities.
  • Lunch will be in the 4-5-6 classrooms (or outside). We will still have Pizza Mondays; pizza will be delivered to the homeroom. Taco Tuesdays will be postponed until further notice.
  • Mrs. Lannert and Ms. Burns will take advantage of outdoor classrooms whenever possible.
  • Specials (Spanish, Music, Art) will meet in the homerooms as much as possible. Specials teachers will be required to wear face masks/shields and will “scrub in and out” when arriving/leaving.
  • PE will be held outdoors as much as possible; however, in inclement weather, our gym is acceptable capacity-wise.
  • The 4-5-6 Outdoor Ed trip planning has been paused. We will reevaluate in the fall.
  • Arrival and dismissal for 4-5-6 will be at the Upper Level Main Entrance. Face masks/shields are required when entering and leaving the building.
  • Parents are asked to drop their children off at the door.
  • Parents may come to the office if necessary, but in general are not allowed in the rest of the building.
  • Only a limited number of non-essential adults are allowed in the building. Face masks/shields are required for all visitors entering the building.
  • No large group events will be held, such as back-to-school events, etc.
  • Friday Morning Gatherings for Lower School will be postponed indefinitely.
  • Before Hours on Late-Start Thursdays and daily After Hours are by reservation only. To limit capacity, we urge parents only to use these services out of necessity.
  • We will have fall Parent-Teacher Conferences either in person with face masks/shields and/or via Zoom.
