URGENT MESSAGE FOR PARENTS AND GUARDIANS
We are busy preparing for our on-site program in the fall using a phased hybrid in-person/remote service model. Our reopening plan is deliberately cautious as we have assessed that the best way for us to remain moving steadily forward is to carefully monitor safety in terms of containment of the virus spread. We are also mindful of our students’ ability to tolerate new behavioral expectations, integrate health and safety protocols, and benefit from learning and treatment delivered within these needed parameters.
We have done much to prepare for this hybrid model — readying the classrooms, halls and offices to receive your children, making improvements to our ventilation systems and making changes to procedures for operating — that will allow us to maintain the essential elements of academic learning and therapeutic contact as safely as possible during this continuing crisis.
But these preparations are just the beginning. Preparing your children and teens for how we will be able to be in-person at school together is an equally important part of this transition. Going forward, we will continue the individual meetings with your child’s treatment team and make a schedule for in-person orientations leading up to our September start. Both are part of the ongoing conversation we will need to have in order to work together to maintain a safe and productive learning and treatment environment — the foundation upon which a safely progressing schedule for in-person services can be achieved. Understand, of course, that families who feel in-person learning poses too great a risk, at this time, for your student or your family, the option to remain on remote only services is available. With your assistance and support we are hopeful that we can take these first steps with confidence and build forward with care.
