We realize that these are unsettling times. It is the school’s aim to make smart, collaborative, evidence-based decisions that keep our community maximally safe, uphold the educational mission of the school, and promote the public health. At the same time, we hold everyone in the warmth of community, so that we may navigate these uncertainties better together.
