After a challenging 2020-21 school year, we know how fundamental school is for our kids’ development and well-being. On top of academic instruction, school fosters social and emotional skills, opportunities for physical activity, and sustaining relationships. We also know that learning is a nonstarter if students aren’t safe and healthy. Learning at ROBS in the 2021-22 school year is once again driven by our commitment to preserving the most ROBS-like experience in the context of COVID-19.
ROBS is currently open for in-person learning across all grade levels, and visitors are welcome on campus. With the help of our Medical Advisory Team, we are continually monitoring transmission rates in our area, especially among children. ROBS continues to adjust protocols alongside the evolving data.
The School’s COVID protocols are as fluid as the virus itself. Parents should reference the weekly newsletter InTouch for the latest protocol updates. For a refresher on what to do if your child is sick or exposed to someone who tests positive for COVID, click the Health Protocols button below.
ROBS confers regularly with its Medical Advisory Team to understand the emerging research and relevant risk factors associated with COVID. The following experts serve in an advisory capacity only. Based on their input and recommendations, the School’s Administrative Team makes policy and operational decisions.
