Q: Will instruction be onsite or online this summer?
Our plan is to offer onsite instruction only this summer. We are taking extra precautions to ensure a safe onsite learning experience by requiring all eligible students and staff to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19*. However, due to the fluidity of the circumstances, we reserve the right to make any necessary shifts to our learning platform based on current data and guidance from public health agencies.
*Unvaccinated students will be required to submit a weekly negative PCR tests.
