October 2020 Schedule: Stage 2

Starting on October 5, we will run this rotation for three weeks. Three weeks will be the general interval between stages, allowing for time beyond the current quarantine guideline to assess data on the healthiness and readiness of our community.

Every MS student will have two days on campus and three days online. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, the MS will share the BVR campus with the Upper School, and we will be carefully monitoring how an additional 60 students on campus is impacting traffic flow in the hallways, common space use, and interactions.

On-campus days for the weeks of October 5, October 13, and October 19. Please note: School is closed Monday, October 12 for fall weekend.

  • 6th Grade: Students are on campus Mondays and Tuesdays
  • 7th Grade: Students are on campus Mondays and Wednesdays
  • 8th Grades: Students are on campus Mondays and Tuesdays
If after three weeks our health metrics are good, Stage 3 is next! The goal will be to continue swinging the pendulum in the direction of having more time on campus while keeping the health and safety of our community as our primary focus.

Expectations for students & families

Here’s the commitment we expect from all our students and families to stay safe this fall. (This also includes what you need to bring and the protocol to follow if you need to go to the nurse’s office!)
