Residential Life

FAll 2020: Student LIfe

We are committed to establishing policies and procedures which will maintain the health and safety of our community while providing a rich, fulfilling experience.

Over the course of the summer, we will develop plans and implement programs which will strengthen our community and improve upon the experience of our students. Every aspect of student life will be considered carefully to ensure that students minimize the chances of becoming ill. And, of course, we are committed to maintaining our strong sense of community.

 

Meals: We will create staggered meal times and, in many cases, multiple dining options so students can enjoy meals with their peers in smaller numbers and with appropriate physical distancing.

Community: While we may not be able to gather in the chapel for all-school morning meetings and for Sunday evening Vespers services, we will have more time and opportunities for smaller subsets of our community to assemble. ( For example, we will have more time for dormitory meetings, club meetings, and grade-level meetings which, we expect, will enrich the bonds between these groups.)

Social Activities: During the fall, we will use our beautiful campus to hold large gatherings and outdoor, school-wide activities. We have the ability to light large spaces around campus so boys can take advantage of the fall weather. During the winter time, we will use the field house to conduct school-wide activities.

 

COVID-19 presents us with an awesome challenge and we understand that we need to consider everything that we do, where we do it, and how we do it. Nonetheless, we are confident that we will not only overcome the obstacles presented by this challenge, but emerge a stronger school and even tighter community.
