We are happy to report that we have received the results from last week’s COVID-19 tests, and they were all negative!
This is wonderful news and a critical step on our journey to a safe, in-person school year; however, we cannot be complacent. We will continue to wear masks, maintain social distance, conduct daily health screenings, and adhere to the public health recommendations that have gotten us to this point. Additionally, we will begin regular COVID-19 testing to monitor the health of the school, where approximately one-third of the community will be tested each week.
It is such a joy to have students on campus. This is a year unlike any other, and our students have risen to meet the challenges of this wholly unique circumstance with a sense of joy, calm, and understanding. Crisis reveals character, and the character of our students is one of great strength and empathy.
To help us continue to keep COVID at bay, please remember:
All dorms are closed to outside visitors
Masks are required in campus buildings, and outside when a six-foot distance from others cannot be maintained
Wash or sanitize hands frequently
Contact the Health Center and/or avoid travel to campus if you have a fever, cough, sore throat, aches or chills, or have experienced changes in sense of smell or taste
