During the first few weeks of school, we will limit the size of gatherings and the interaction of students as we establish a healthy baseline for the community through our Covid-19 testing program. There is no set timetable for relaxing these measures; testing alone doesn’t mean we can ease mitigation practices. Health conditions on campus and regionally will determine how we move through the continuum from strict prevention to more relaxed measures.
As in the fall, parents initially will be permitted to visit campus only during the structured times we establish. As health conditions stand at present, students will also not be permitted to take day or overnight leaves. If conditions change during the semester, we will reassess and consider whether we can permit leaves and campus visits.
