Rowland Hall is actively planning for a return to
on-campus learning 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.
Rowland Hall plans for school to start on August 26, whether in-person, in a hybrid model, or in our enhanced distance learning model. (Beginning School starts on August 28.)
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:
- Keep our mission and values at the forefront of our thinking
- Connect students and teachers in a learning program that is engaging, relevant, and in-person, if possible
- Create learning models that flex with health and safety guidelines
- 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. We are building 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 are ready to shift to a different teaching and learning model.
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.
Physical Campus, Health & Safety Guidelines, and Return to Work Procedures
Strategies are being discussed and developed in the following areas. Policies will be finalized and available here and in the back to school mailing on August 3, with the caveat that if health and safety concerns change between August 3 and August 26, we may amend as needed.
