This week’s schedule
*Note: Our rotation will remain the same through Spring Break. We have updated our month-by-month calendar to reflect February and March. For the spring, we are looking at our Fridays, how we’re using them, and what that could mean when we have more spaces available outdoors. More details to come!
- Read more about the thinking behind this in the BVR MS chat recap.
Reminder: Remain vigilant, avoid unnecessary social gatherings, and adhere to the “Big 3”
It’s more important than ever for us to adhere to the “Big 3” and increase our vigilance both at school and in our personal lives in the coming weeks. Cases continue to increase in the Commonwealth. In order to continue our hybrid model of school, we all need to do our part. Please limit social gatherings that are unnecessary and continue to wear a mask, social distance, and wash your hands.
During Stage 3, students will have 3 days on campus most weeks. For November, December, and January, we are adding Thursdays as on campus days for middle school students. Middle School will now share campus with Upper School every on-campus day. This means each MS grade will rotate their Mondays on campus. Fridays will be online days for the entire Middle School, allowing for important “mask off” time that fosters community engagement and programming and brings everyone together in one place—including our students and faculty who are remote during the week. Taking into consideration the breaks and Monday holidays, each month varies slightly to allow for all students to be on campus 3 days a week for the majority of that month.
