Dear Early Childhood and Lower School Parents, 

We are excited to be back at school! As you know, there may be times that you must keep your child at home because he or she presents possible COVID symptoms or needs to quarantine.  Please see the updated Return to Learn Guide featuring updated policies as of October 16.  

Please note, remote learning is reserved for students who are ill or are concerned about immunocompromised members of their households. As you have seen from our Remote Learning experience, learning over Zoom requires a lot of materials. Therefore, in order to support your child when he or she learns on Zoom from home, we will use the following protocols moving forward:

  • If your child will not be attending school, please complete the form on the Early Childhood and Lower School Remote Learning page (“Sign up here if your child will be learning remotely”) by 8:30 AM on the same day. The daily schedule and zoom links for each teacher are also listed on the Remote Learning page.
  • The first day your child is home, s/he is welcome to join on Zoom to feel connected to the learning and to hear the teacher’s instruction. The teacher will not be sending work home until the end of the day, so there is no expectation for your child to complete tasks during the Zoom. 
  • If your child will be out for more than one day, the teachers can send home all classroom materials with the student you designate. Starting on day 2 and moving forward, your child should log on at the appropriate times and complete the same work as the class. Teachers will do their best to include your child in instruction and answer any questions.
  • Parent Locker must be completed daily whether your child is learning in-person or remotely.
  • If your child experiences technical difficulties while they are zooming into class, please do not email the teacher as they do not check emails during the school day. Rather, please send an email to one of the addresses below for assistance: 

We look forward to a continued year of learning and growth. 

Aron Srolovitz and Ruth DiGiovanni
