Planning for Back to School

Canterbury Head of School

Over the course of the past four weeks, our Pandemic Health and Wellness Committee has been hard at work devising plans for a return to school in August. I am happy to officially announce that Canterbury will open its doors to all students (ages 2-grade 12) on August 26th. I am deeply appreciative of the committee (whose names are attached) for their thoughtful deliberations over the past month and want to thank Mr. Ottenweller for his guidance and leadership as he has chaired the committee process. Canterbury will release a detailed plan for a return to school by the third week of July. This plan will include measures for safeguarding the health of students, school staff, and our parent community. We are committed to on campus instruction this school year but will also craft continuity plans for those who are not ready to return to a physical learning environment. 

While COVID-19 continues to present a myriad of challenges, I know that the Canterbury community is poised to overcome them together. 

I am looking forward to releasing our return to campus plan within the next few weeks, but more than anything I am excited to see students back at Canterbury in August.
