Dear Upper School Families,

I hope you all are faring well given that, in a normal year, the heart of winter can feel like a meal of all vegetables and no dessert!

Here is the snapshot of the Gray/Maroon days for the upcoming week. Please note that we do not have school on Friday, February 12th (Faculty PD Day), and Monday, February 15th (Presidents Day). Early next week, I will provide an updated schedule for students that will carry us up to spring break.
Schedule Feb 8-12
As you know, we had a slightly higher number of COVID-19 cases in our community in early January. Thankfully that is calming down just as our winter sports seasons are also winding down. In addition, we are happy to report that most of our faculty have been able to receive their first doses of the vaccine this week. These elements combined allow us to explore increasing our student attendance, and more details will be provided in next week’s communication to you.

Looking further ahead, Parent-Teacher Conferences in early March will happen over Zoom just as they did in the fall. Registration via your MySchoolApp will open February 17th at 7:00 p.m. and it will close on February 26th at midnight. Conferences in Upper School will happen:
  • 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 3rd 
  • 1:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 4th (half-day for students)
  • 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, March 5th (no school for students)

Thank you again for your continued support and partnership. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.

Warmly,

Head of Upper School
