Dear Parents,

Thank you for your support and patience as we executed a successful distance learning plan. Our teachers worked tirelessly to deliver strong content with empathy and commitment to our students. Parents and students gave us valuable feedback as we continued to enhance our programming.

We are hopeful that we will start the 2020-21 school year with on-campus learning. As we move forward, we are developing a plan for various scenarios that we may face in the fall. You will receive more details in the near future, but I wanted to share with you an overview with three very different scenarios that we are actively developing. No matter the scenario, please know that we are committed to delivering strong academic content tailored to our students’ different learning styles as well as to the health and safety of our community.
On-Campus Learning
Canterbury administration is preparing for on-campus school operations to resume in the fall of 2020. Both campuses will follow the specific health precautions outlined by the CDC and in accordance with local, state, and federal requirements. Specific decisions and plans regarding campus operations will be finalized over the next several weeks.

Blended Learning
Canterbury administration is preparing for a nontraditional learning scenario in which students will spend part of their instructional hours on campus and part of the time learning virtually. This model would be used in conjunction with CDC, local, and state government guidelines. This learning model would facilitate social distancing while also ensuring on-campus learning. 

Distance Learning
Should distance learning have to take place, learning will be through our approved digital platforms. Students will continue active learning, via synchronous and asynchronous sessions, in their academic and enrichment courses delivered by the faculty and staff. The distance learning program will allow every student to continue staying actively engaged with the community and in their learning while working safely and remotely from home.

These plans will take shape over the summer as we implement more professional development opportunities, consult with trusted resources, and remain committed to delivering the best education experience for our students.

We are aware that these are difficult times financially for some members of our community. We will do the best we can to help families that may need assistance during this time. I encourage you to reach out to our Director of Admissions, Dr. Colin Wyenberg , or me if you have financial concerns. We also encourage families to explore the tuition refund insurance program offered by the school.

We will continue to communicate with you throughout the summer as we put these steps in place, but you can expect our next communication about these plans in the first week of June.

Thank you for your trust and support. Please know our paramount concern with every decision we make and action we take is the safety of our students, faculty, staff, and parents - the Canterbury Family.
