Arrival to campus and dorm move-ins will be scheduled over Sept. 2-3, with Monitors and Prefects arriving on the first day. Move-ins will be scheduled (sign-ups will be sent the week of Aug. 10), and we will send details about your time, arrival procedures, orientation, and more. This page also will be updated with that information.

What Families Should Do Now...

List of 3 items.

  • We invite parents of students who have health concerns about attending in person to reach out to the staff at the Health Center

    ( If you or your son or daughter has social-emotional concerns about the return to school, please contact Director of Counseling Kristin Hosmer (
  • Beginning 14 days before they return to campus on Sept. 2 and 3,

    students should plan to limit contact with individuals outside their families and stay at home as much as possible. We will send more details about best practices. Yet know that starting Aug. 19-20, we ask that students make their health — and that of the entire EHS community — a priority as they prepare to come to school.

    July 30 update: To determine whether students need to fully quarantine before arriving on campus, Episcopal will follow the U.S. State Department guidelines for international students as well as the Commonwealth of Virginia guidelines for domestic students. At present, only students from China will need to quarantine for 14 days. At this time, the School does not anticipate being able to accommodate students in quarantine on campus. We have reserved a block of rooms at a local hotel and will provide chaperones, if needed, and other support. See the International Students page of the reopening plan for more details.
    Please note: If Virginia introduces a quarantine on travelers from areas of the United States, we will support those students in the same way.
  • We ask that all students complete the annual required health forms found in their Magnus Health file

    in the parent portal of the EHS website. Please note the addition this year of a required coronavirus health form in which families identify a regional emergency contact (a family member or friend who lives no more than a day’s travel to campus) who could pick up their children within 24 hours if they are placed in quarantine or isolation. See more information on this Health and Wellness page. We urge all families to consider now how they or their designated contact would get to campus quickly to retrieve their student.
