High School

< < < See links on lefthand menu for additional information.


These are the procedures that will be implemented that directly affect the High Schoolers (9th - 12th grade):

  • High School students will be required to wear face masks/shields in the building, but teachers will allow for removing them when the risk is low. Teachers reserve the right to dictate when face masks/shields are required within the classroom or within a cohort, keeping in mind physical distancing.
  • Several of the High School classrooms have sinks for handwashing.
  • The High School students will use the bathrooms in the Upper School hallway.
  • The High Schoolers will be the only group to have lunch in the Dining Room. They can also eat outside. We will still have Pizza Mondays; pizza will be delivered to the homeroom. Taco Tuesdays will be postponed until further notice.
  • High School teachers will take advantage of outdoor classrooms whenever possible.
  • PE will be held outdoors as much as possible; however, our gym is acceptable capacity-wise.
  • Interims for the 2020-21 school year are still pending.
  • Clubs will likely be high school only.
  • High School will participate in limited electives within their cohorts.  
  • Arrival and dismissal for High School will be at the Upper Level Main Entrance. Face masks/shields are required when entering and leaving the building.
  • 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. 
  • Our traditional Morning Meetings for all Upper Schoolers will be altered to reduce the size of the gathering. High Schoolers will have their Morning Meeting (Mondays and Wednesdays) in the Meeting Room.
  • Upper School Advisory Meetings, which will be held on Tuesdays and Fridays, will include high school only.
  • We will conduct a parent survey regarding High School Trips. We hope to offer our annual domestic trip. There will be no international trip.
  • We anticipate having our homecoming events (but perhaps the dance will be without guests). This is all still TBD.
  • We will have fall Parent-Teacher Conferences either in person with face masks/shields and/or via Zoom.
