Return to Campus Guide

As of July 22, 2020, we plan to return to campus in Operating Scenario 2 for lower and middle school and Operating Scenario 3 for upper school. Click the COVID-19 Communications tab below for the latest information.

The Bolles School is confidently pursuing a safe return to school on August 13 unless authorities mandate for schools to remain closed. We are planning for four different operating scenarios which allow the community to transition between options given changes in virus prevalence and federal, state and local guidance:

Operating Scenario One
Traditional Operation – All students and employees will be on campus without modifications when the pandemic subsides and it is safe to do so.

Operating Scenario Two
Return to Campus with Modifications – Students and teachers will be on campus with health, safety and physical distancing modifications in place. Families who are not ready to return to campus may opt for full-time At-Home Learning.

Operating Scenario Three
Blended Learning – At the middle and upper school level, students will be split into cohorts who will rotate between on-campus and at-home learning to reduce the number of students on campus at one time. Families who are not ready to return to campus may opt for full-time At-Home Learning.

Operating Scenario Four
Distance Learning – All students and faculty will be learning from home.  The decision to move to distance learning will be made in conjunction with our medical partners, as well as federal, state, and local officials.

 

Recognizing that some families may not be ready for their child(ren) to return to campus at this time and would prefer temporary At-Home Learning, families will be given the option to learn from home. Our Distance Learning program has been modified from how it was last spring to accommodate both students at school in a classroom as well as those that elect to take classes from home in real time.

  • Students who opt for At-Home Learning will be given the option to return to campus at the start of the second quarter on October 15. Information regarding the return to campus will be sent to families in advance of the October 15 date.
  • Students who opt for On-Campus Learning that must temporarily quarantine at home may participate in At-Home Learning until they are permitted to return to On-Campus Learning.
  • Students who opt for On-Campus Learning may switch to At-Home Learning with permission from the campus head.

School leaders have assembled a “Return to Campus Guidebook” that outlines specifics of the many safety, health and wellness protocols we have implemented for the benefit of our students, faculty, staff, boarders, families and visitors. The Re-entry Plan and tabs below highlights important information from this Guidebook to provide the safest environment possible for your child. Stay well!
