As Eton School prepared for the 2020-2021 academic year, we were faced with the reality that our planning could not proceed as it did prior to the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, our COVID-19 Task Force planned for the school year with a continuance to monitor the guidance and requirements issued by public health and educational agencies and take them into consideration in updating plans, policies, and procedures. We are determined to continue to be well prepared and ready to respond to changing conditions and scenarios as we focus on Eton School Safe.
*Based on Guidelines and Recommendations:
As Eton School, we are a community that takes care of and supports each other. An aspect of supporting and taking care of one another encompasses working together to control the transmission of COVID-19 and to protect those who are most vulnerable to it while upholding our mission of educating the whole child. As a community, we stand together in taking this pledge to protect ourselves, protect others, and protect our community.
Our 2020-2021 Academic Year Plan
With the soft opening of the Summer Program in June, we were able to refine and continued to refine all the health and safety protocols to keep students and staff safe and also meet students’ social and emotional needs. This guided our decision to follow the DOH guidelines of opening in-person learning. We prioritized our Model 1 for in-person and remote learning with the flexibility to move between the other models as mandated, and a commitment to transparency and partnership within our community.
