Covid 19 Update

As of 8/8/2021

During the 2021-22 school year, the following protocols will be observed as it relates to our response to COVID-19. 

 

Masks
Wearing a mask is optional for all students, faculty, and staff. We are encouraging all visitors to campus who have not been vaccinated to wear a mask while indoors.

 

Student Vaccinations
COVID-19 vaccinations are not required for students, though they are encouraged if recommended by CDC. Consistent with medical advice from local health experts, non-vaccinated students will be required to quarantine if contract tracing shows them being in significant contact with a confirmed positive case of COVID-19. 

 

As a reminder, being considered a close contact through contact tracing can result from any involvement (e.g., extracurricular, academic, or off-campus) where students are exposed to a confirmed positive COVID-19 individual for 15 minutes or longer. Vaccinated students will not be required to quarantine if they are asymptomatic.
