Health + Safety

We have added outdoor tents, increased cleaning and ventilation, developed protocols for reporting and tracking COVID-19, and much more in preparation for a safe return to our campuses. Face coverings are required indoors on all of our campuses regardless of vaccination status.

If you suspect you might be sick or contagious, or have been exposed to someone who is ill, here's what to do:

If You Are Sick / Symptoms / Quarantine vs. Isolation / Coronavirus Testing for Uninsured / Guidance for Care of Children with Symptoms



Teaching + Learning

We are excited to resume our regular school schedules when we return in-person in Fall 2021.
