COVID-19 Health and Safety Measures and In-Person, Hybrid, and Remote Learning Models

We're 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'll deliver both to the best of our ability within each learning model while adapting to community COVID-19 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'll continue to follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Utah Department of Health. We're closely monitoring the Utah COVID-19 Transmission Index—as well as school-specific guidance from the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Utah COVID-19 School Manual, and Mass General’s School and Community Resource Library—and are prepared to pivot as needed.

Our Three Learning Models: Face-to-Face Learning, Hybrid Learning, and Distance Learning

During the 2020–2021 school year, we're prepared to toggle between different learning models based on community health risks. As we designed three different teaching and learning models, we focused on the developmental considerations in each division. In all divisions, we're 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, utilizing hybrid components where some students are present and others are not, and returning to a full distance-learning program if necessary.

1

Face-to-Face Learning

This is an on-campus model with physical distancing and sanitizing protocols. Students will experience small cohorts, staggered starts, staggered lunches, no large gatherings, physical distancing, and health screenings while attending school in person five days a week.

This model is available for students in the Beginning School (preschool covering 3PreK, 4PreK, and kindergarten) and Lower School (elementary school, grades 1–5).

2

Hybrid Learning

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 students in the Middle School (grades 6–8) and Upper School (high school, grades 9–12). 

3

Distance Learning

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 students in the Lower School (elementary school, grades 1–5), Middle School (grades 6–8), and Upper School (high school, grades 9–12).
