COVID-19

COMMUNITY   RESILIENCE

Rising to the moment of the COVID-19 pandemic and creating a campus reopening plan demonstrates the strength of Crestmont’s ability to pivot in challenging circumstances to meet the needs of our school community. In accordance with our cooperative structure, our school operates with close collaboration between parents, teachers, and administration in all of our functioning. We take pride in the fact that all of our community members come from diverse backgrounds and have an equal voice in our governance process. Members of the Board, Administration, teachers, and parents convened as the Crestmont Covid-19 Task Force and crafted detailed health and safety protocols informed by federal, state, and local regulations and guidance, which allowed us to return to campus this year.  

KEY COMPONENTS OF OUR SAFETY PLAN ARE: 

  • Open air classrooms and outdoor learning spaces

  • Social distancing within very small classes

  • Face mask requirement

  • Vigilant campus cleaning and hand washing

  • Staggered schedules with efficient curbside drop-off and pick-up

  • Daily health screening, symptom monitoring, and community testing

  • Robust and connected distance learning program when needed

  • Proactive planning and responsiveness for changing circumstances

CAMPUS   RE-OPENING

The‌ ‌safety‌ ‌of‌ ‌our‌ ‌children,‌ ‌teachers,‌ ‌families‌, and community at large ‌is‌ of utmost importance.  In response to the global pandemic crisis, Crestmont School dismissed campus classes on March 13, 2020, and immediately transitioned to Distance Learning. Crestmont began the 2020-21 school year with a full, comprehensive Distance Learning program for all grades. Crestmont is committed to re-opening its campus safely and in accord with all applicable regulations. To that end, a task force including representatives of the Board, Administration, Staff, and Parents reviewed available research and recommendations, and created the Crestmont School COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocol. This document is ‌designed‌ ‌to‌ outline Crestmont’s practices and safety measures upon return to campus. ‌ ‌ We are committed to creating a clean and safe space for our students and our staff, and to minimize the risk of infection as much as possible.
