Returning to Campus: Quisque Pro Omnibus
We are excited to offer a five-day on-campus educational experience for all of our students. Because of the nature of COVID-19, the school is taking significant precautions to mitigate the risks to members of our community. As you will see this is a complicated endeavor that will require partnership between the school and our families. We ask that families work with the school in ensuring your children take appropriate precautions when not on campus. By doing this we can provide for the health and safety for everybody and make sure we are able to stay on campus providing the best possible educational experience for your children.
