Fall 2020 Plans

Students in Nursery through Grade 8 are on campus attending in-person classes in pods. Many classes are held in outdoor spaces and in the surrounding forest areas and parks. The high school is mostly in full distance-learning mode. High school students have begun in-person art classes on campus one day per week and will continue their remote learning schedules. Ninth grade students will start attending in-person classes in pods on the high school campus in December. The 10th, 11th, and 12th graders will join them starting January 4, 2021, on a schedule of alternating weeks.

We hope to have in-person classes available for all students when we return to school in the New Year. The school is committed to safely supporting students' social, emotional, physical, and intellectual development. Our COVID-19 Task Force monitors San Francisco Department of Public Health developments and prepares for different scenarios. 

Parallel distance learning is available for students who cannot attend in-person classes due to reasons related to COVID-19.
