School Updates + Policies
* PLEASE NOTE : THE BELOW INFORMATION IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE. PLEASE CHECK BACK FREQUENTLY FOR UPDATES.
The Country Day School has been conducting in-person instruction since August 2020 for all programs for the 2020-2021 school year. CDS has met many challenges of the pandemic by drawing on our many years of early childhood education practices and experience. We have crafted comprehensive changes to our programs and procedures in response to continually evolving state and federal parameters. Our goal is to always provide a safe, meaningful and developmentally appropriate learning environment for our students and staff.
Our amazing community of families and educators we are privileged to be a part of.
With that sense of community in mind, we want to provide you with updated information about where we are currently with regards to evolving policies during the pandemic. As new information becomes available, it will be shared with faculty and staff and communicated with families through established communication channels. Health & Safety is our foremost priority.
ALL policy updates are included in the Family Handbook Addendum.
The following are the measures we are implementing to support a safe environment for the children and staff at The Country Day School.
