Our planning efforts for the fall 2022 semester have been guided by a desire to hew as closely as possible to “normal” while attending to the health of our community. This approach has been shaped by our core values: we harvest and analyze the wisdom of experts, we have high expectations of our community, and, above all, we care for each other.
We urge our students, families, faculty, and staff to familiarize themselves with the policies below, which have been vetted by the epidemiology experts at Fusion Cell, the consultancy that has guided our risk-mitigation efforts throughout the pandemic.
As always, we remain attuned to the evolving nature of COVID-19, and we are prepared to pivot in response to changing public health conditions; we will notify students, families, faculty, and staff accordingly. We also understand that, even with vaccines and booster shots, COVID-19 can still pose a serious risk to individuals who are immunocompromised; students, faculty, and staff concerned about high-risk individuals in their homes should reach out to Head of School Jennifer Borman.
When Commonwealth students, faculty, or staff—or members of their household—test positive for COVID-19, they must contact Stephanie Poynter, our Director of Operations and medical point of contact: email@example.com or 617-266-7525.
