We will employ social distancing when waiting for photos to be taken, and all photos will be done outdoors.
Wednesday, September 23rd, is SAT day. Any seniors and juniors signed up to take the test should check in at school by 7:55 a.m. in order to get seated in your testing room by 8:00 a.m. Students should arrive in dress code with a charged calculator and #2 pencils. Water bottles are allowed but may only be used on brief, socially distanced breaks outside of the testing rooms. Most students will be finished between 11:30-noon and may depart campus once they have finished. Those on extended time will finish later. All test-takers may eat lunch at school if they wish.
All US students not taking the SAT will be doing asynchronous work from home. There are no Zoom classes happening this day.
Thursday, October 1st, is our Upper School’s (Virtual) Back-to-School Night. The evening will entail 10 minute class meetings via Zoom, where you will get to hear about each of your children’s courses and meet their teachers. The evening will begin at 6:45 p.m. just for ninth grade advisory groups and move to academic classes for everyone at 7:00 p.m. A detailed schedule, along with the teacher links, will be sent next week.
Please continue to keep us informed regarding your children’s attendance, whether something changes online or in-person.
Also, as the weather has started to turn cooler and upper school students continue to change classes by going outdoors, please encourage your children to dress in layers and have appropriate sweaters or CA sweatshirts on hand (no hoodies, please). They should also have a jacket in case of rain.
Head of Upper School
