Back-to-School & Path to Reopening 2020-2021

Path to Reopening

We have been working hard to plan for a safe fall in light of the current situation. Families are asked to read our Path to Reopening carefully; it reflects the first step of our planning and our progress so far. Additional planning with respect to student schedules, transportation, extracurricular activities, and meals is still underway and will be informed by parent/guardian survey responses. Read our preliminary Path to Reopening here.

Safety Update

We have been working  to ready Friends’ Central for a fall that might be Modified Face-to-Face, Virtual FCS, or both at once. At every step, we have asked ourselves if we can return to campus in a way that is safe enough to give our community the in-person benefits we all want without sacrificing the physical wellbeing of the community. Our Safety Update, which builds on the Path to Reopening above, provides details about safety measures, new practices, and schedules planned for fall.
