Although our students have transitioned into summer mode and COVID-19 restrictions have begun to loosen, we are looking ahead to what September will hold for our campuses and families.
Our preference and our priority is to get students back to our campuses, but we must ensure this is done in a safe and effective way. While we await official guidance from Public Health and the Ministry of Education, a “return to school” task force has been hard at work putting concrete operational plans in place for all likely scenarios. This includes a full return to campus with safeguards, a blended model of virtual and in-campus learning and the continuation of fully virtual classrooms. All scenarios will provide robust learning and live, daily instruction and interaction with teachers and peers.
We will be implementing across-the-board policies on hand washing, facility cleaning and social distancing measures. We are also prepared to pivot individually based on the guidance of local health authorities and to best serve students and families.
As September’s scenario becomes clearer and more information becomes available, we will continue to communicate.
