February 21, 2023
Due to the impending snowstorm, campus will be closed on Wednesday, February 22 and Thursday, February 23 in the interest of safety for the entire community. Based on the developmental needs of the children at each division level, these two days will be handled differently:
- In Lower School, we will observe Wednesday as a snow day, and there will be no virtual learning or additional assignments. On Thursday, Lower School teachers will provide optional activities via their Schoology pages for students to access if they are able and wish to do so. We encourage Lower School students to take this opportunity to read a good book, help around the house, and play outside in the snow!
- In Middle School, we will observe Wednesday as a snow day, and there will be no virtual learning or additional assignments. Students will be expected to complete homework or project work that has already been assigned. On Thursday, Middle School teachers, at their discretion, may provide virtual learning assignments or opportunities for students in grades six through eight via their Schoology pages. Students in grade five may visit their Schoology pages, if they are able, for some optional activities. In addition to doing school work, Middle School students should also take this opportunity to read a good book, help around the house, and play outside in the snow!
- In Upper School, students can expect to find a clear plan for each class of their day in Schoology by 8 AM on Wednesday and by 8 AM on each subsequent day. Classes may be held synchronously or asynchronously, as determined by the teacher. If synchronous, the class would be on Zoom or Teams, whichever the teacher prefers, and links will be provided. Upper School study halls will not meet while off campus.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your division director or teacher. Please stay safe and warm at home, and we’ll hope to see everyone back on campus on Friday.
