Re-Entry Updates

All Saints' began the 2020-21 school year on August 26, 2020. All students were given the choice between on-campus and Virtual Learning. For those who chose on-campus learning, Early Childhood and Lower School Saints attend five days a week in a Cohort Model, and Middle and Upper School Saints are utilizing a Hybrid Model. Starting October 13, Middle and Upper School students will resume their traditional A/B block schedule five days a week. Read more in our Re-Entry Plan.

Above you can see photos of our protocols in action. Thank you to our All Saints' community for their input and support through the Re-Entry process, in particular:

Frequently Asked Questions

List of 5 frequently asked questions.

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Will we receive a dining refund for the days my student is not on campus?

    We will implement a refund policy for students who will not have access to dining services on predetermined days (MS/US students in the Hybrid Model, and any student who opted into Virtual Learning). Refunds will be based on an approximate price of $6.00 per day for dining services, and determined at the conclusion of the first semester, which allows administration to determine the duration of the Hybrid and Virtual Learning models employed per student. Each refund will first be credited to any outstanding balance, and subsequently paid by check. 

    The Business Office will not be tracking or issuing refunds for periods when a student is in quarantine/isolation.
  • Are there restrictions on travel or quarantine before returning to campus?

    We ask that families notify their Division Head about utilizing the virtual option if they have traveled/will travel within the two weeks leading up to a return to campus and socialized in a group of 10+ people outside of your household for more than 15 minutes. Examples include attendance at resident camps or vacations with multiple families. This is a preventative measure to put the odds in our favor for a healthy and successful start of school.
  • Will physical distancing and mask wearing have a negative effect on my child?

    Having students safely on campus is our top priority to ensure students' social and emotional needs are met. The current guidelines allow most students to remove masks when they are seated at their desks and physically distant. Outside and fresh air greatly reduce COVID transmission, so teachers are encouraged to take their classes outside any time it is feasible provided they remain distanced. EC and LS have scheduled recesses and PE as well for students to play safely.
  • Is it practical to expect a six-year-old to properly wear a mask all day?

    The general public, young and old, have struggled with properly wearing masks. We know children have a remarkable capacity for learning and adapting, especially when reinforced with repetition and positive role modeling. They won't be perfect all of the time but every chance we get to decrease risk and positively impact the health of our All Saints' community is important.
  • Are classmates required to maintain social distance from each other, while in the classroom?

    Yes, classmates are required to maintain social distance in the classroom as much as possible. When it is not possible or if they are working in small groups, everyone should wear their masks and limit this time to ten minutes.
  • Will masks provide adequate protection given the Cohort Model in EC and LS, where students and teachers have long and constant exposure to each other anyway?

    EC students will be required to wear masks entering and exiting the buildings and during co-curriculars. They will be allowed to take their masks off while in their homerooms. Faculty will use face coverings. 

    LS students will be required to wear masks at all times except during breaks when they can be adequately distanced from others. The TCHD strongly advises that masks provide a large degree of protection while everyone is masked. At this time, the TCHD recommends entire classrooms/cohorts be quarantined if there is an exposure in their room, whether or not they wore masks.
  • Will the Virtual Learning curriculum be equitable to on-campus learning? 

    Yes. Although research supports in-person learning whenever possible, Virtual Learning will mirror the on-campus environment much more than it did in the spring. Virtual students will be expected to log into their classroom daily at specified times, listen to lessons in real time, participate in small groups or one-on-one time with the teacher, and complete independent work as they would in an on-campus environment.
