Roberts announces 4-day week will begin Feb. 22


Head of School Bryn Roberts announced in an e-mail sent to families this afternoon, that the school would move from the current hybrid schedule to a 4:1 schedule starting Feb. 22.

“The new schedule will bring Grades 6-12 to campus for in-person learning on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. On Wednesdays, students will be at home in Distance Learning and will follow a ‘flex day’ schedule with asynchronous learning opportunities, community activities, and time for check-in and collaboration with teachers and peers,” he wrote.

With the new schedule coming mid-quarter, families are being given the option to opt into 4:1 or opt into full distance learning again: “Approximately 14% of our Middle School students and 10% of our Upper School students are currently in Distance Learning, and our teachers will continue to provide instruction in a blended modality for the remainder of the year, with some students in their classrooms and others at home,” Roberts wrote.
