Avon Safe: Reopening Plan

With 'Avon Safe', we're ready (and excited!) for a new school year

Avon Safe is our comprehensive strategy to keep our campus and our community safe by limiting the spread of COVID-19. Our COVID Task Force has formulated a Pandemic Operations Response Plan to address multiple considerations including the health, wellness, and safety of our community as well as the continuity of operations of the school with the least impact to our students and faculty during the current pandemic.

 

 The plan's goal is to protect the health and safety of the Avon community by:

  1. Limiting the number of illnesses in our community
  2. Preserving the continuity of essential school functions
  3. Minimizing educational and social disruption
  4. Minimizing academic and economic losses of the school

Big Brother Mentorship Program

Our big brother program this year is going to look a little different from past programs. This year, we solicited applications from boys who were rising juniors and seniors, and from that pool we selected 40 boys to be big brothers, based on their character, grades, involvement in the school, etc. 

Each big brother will have a team of new boys and will act as a student advisor. He will meet frequently and consistently with his team of little brothers (each big will have about four "littles", and each group will be a mix of freshmen, sophomores, and upper-class new boys) to acclimate them to the school as well as help them with the transition to life at Avon. 

It is our hope that these small advisory teams will also remain close even when their new-boy year comes to an end. The "bigs" brothers will communicate with the "littles" as early as possible in the summer, and at least a few times throughout the summer. The "bigs" will be here on move-in day to meet their littles and families.
