Dear Day Student Families,

Happy first week “back” to Gould. We know that our start to the school year does not have the same feel, but please know that we are striving to keep our community as safe and healthy as possible. We thank you for your continued patience.

We would like to give you an update on plans for the upcoming weekend. 
On Friday, all students are welcome to attend the outdoor screening of Hamilton after dinner. There will also be a round of Minecraft organized by Mr. Newell that students may attend. They will receive more details at the Friday assembly.

Originally we hoped to have all of our test results back by Friday, but it is possible that the last round of results will not be back from the lab until Sunday. This means students need to remain in their cohorts until then.  

As we examine day student opportunities for Saturday and Sunday, we recognize that logistically we are not be able to do so without mixing cohorts. So we are asking day students not come to campus either day. We realize this is not ideal and might not feel fair, but we wanted to give you as much notice as possible. Again, please know we are doing our very best to keep the Gould community (and beyond) safe. 

Student have an All-School Zoom Assembly on Sunday at 7:30 p.m to let them know if there will be in-person classes and athletics on Monday. The link will be in tomorrow's newsletter.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact either of us.

Be well and stay safe,
Dean of Community Life
Day Student Advisor
