Rowland Hall is proudly offering in-person, hybrid, and remote distance learning classes this fall. 

We are committed to delivering an unmatched program that continues to inspire deep thinking and builds strong relationships while prioritizing the health and safety of our community.

We know that students thrive when an excellent academic program is matched by vibrant co-curricular life, and we are actively planning to deliver both to the best of our ability within each learning model while adapting to community health risk levels.

Four principles guide this framework: 

  1. Keep our mission and values at the forefront of our thinking
  2. Connect students and teachers in a learning program that is engaging, relevant, and in-person, if possible
  3. Create learning models that flex with health and safety guidelines 
  4. Prioritize the health and safety of our community 

We will continue to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Utah Department of Health. Additionally, we are closely monitoring recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Mass General’s School and Community Resource Library, and the Center for Disease Control guidance on school reopeningWe built our plan using the Utah color-coded risk phases so that if the city or state moves into a different risk status, we as a school pivot as needed. 

 

Teaching and Learning Models

Heading into the 2020-2021 academic year we must be prepared to toggle between different learning models based on community health risks. As we design for three different teaching and learning models, we are focusing on the developmental considerations in each division. In all divisions, we are committed to delivering a challenging and engaging academic program, setting a high standard for teaching and learning in an environment that is supportive and focused on relationship-building, no matter where we are. Our plans are designed to flex between being fully on-campus, having hybrid components where some students are present and others are not, and returning to a full distance learning program.

This model is available for Beginning School and Lower School students.

Low Risk/Moderate

Hybrid Learning Model

This model combines face-to-face learning with some distance learning experiences. Students will experience small cohorts, staggered starts, staggered lunches, no large gatherings, physical distancing, and health screenings while engaging in learning five days a week.

This model is available to Middle School and Upper School students. 

3

High Risk

Distance Learning Model

This model allows students to be actively engaged in their learning five days a week through the use of our new smart classroom audio-visual system and our learning management system.

This learning model is available to Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School students. 

In the event that Salt Lake City moves to a COVID-19 red risk phase, our physical campus will close and all students will engaged in distance learning five days a week.
