Reopening Campus for Fall 2020
This page was last updated on September 2, 2020.
Our Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools have each created a document that outlines their procedures for the school year. These documents contain information on hygiene protocols, social distancing, and procedures for students who will be streaming classes at home. We encourage you to closely read the plan(s) relevant to your family.
Lower School Streaming Portal
For our Lower School students streaming classes from home, we have created a portal with access to class schedules and ancillary class lessons.
We are committed to delivering the Saint Thomas' Episcopal School mission through on-campus programming, while also supporting those who are unable to be on campus due to illness or significant health risk. In order to safely reopen campus, we are assessing information, acting decisively, and developing guidelines and procedures in service of our community.
The following principles guide our plan for reopening campus:
- Protect the health and safety of students and staff
- Be compliant with government orders and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Texas Department of State Health Services
- Establish effective use of spaces to support physical distancing across campus
- Provide a school day experience with as many familiar routines as possible
