2020–2021 Academic Year

Below is Pingree School's comprehensive plan for a safe return to campus this fall, which is guided by two primary principles:

  • Mitigating risk to ensure the health and safety of our entire community 
  • Providing our students with a meaningful educational experience

Health and safety remain paramount as we modify programs and schedules with the central objective of having all students engaged in as much live teaching and learning as possible. Our return to campus in any form this fall will require that everyone follow new community norms and a series of layered safety protocols. We are all in this together to mitigate the risk of transmission and educate our students.

Our opening task force groups are in close communication with local and national health professionals as we monitor opening factors outside of our immediate control that will influence decision-making, which include: transmission rates in our geographic area and their impact on state guidelines; changes to current guidelines, especially with regards to distancing in classrooms and large group gathering capacity limits; transportation and bus guidelines that may impact our ability to provide transportation to everyone; and decisions made by other schools, especially public schools that may impact our faculty and their ability to be on campus consistently.
