Balancing Connection with Safety
We are intentionally calling these “start-of-school” protocols because we expect them to evolve over the course of the school year, perhaps as early as this fall. Last year, we learned a lot about safely operating during a global pandemic, and we believe we can effectively prioritize safety while also focusing on our priority for this year: connection.
We continue to consider guidance from many sources, including the CDC and AAP, and filter this through a team of national medical consultants as well as several medical experts within our own community. We also pay close attention to emerging research as well as our own experience on the AOS campus. While the Delta variant has undermined some of what we thought we knew, we continue to be confident in our ability to keep our community members as safe as possible while on campus.
