Pine Street School: 2021 COVID Response

Open Live, On-Site, and Full-Time

What follows is our current COVID-19 Opening Plan for the 2021-22 school year. Although this plan was developed based on what we know given our current situation, there is still so much that is simply unknown. For that reason, this is intended to be a “living document” that must and will change as new information, regulations, and innovations surface.

Thus, as the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, so will our plan. While we will update you as changes are necessary and with as much advance notice as possible, it is also essential that we, as a community, all adhere to the safety measures and guidelines in place at any given time.
