COVID-19 Protocols

Thanks to the many members of our community who worked tirelessly since last spring to help us return to school in-person for the 2020-2021 school year. The health and safety protocols contained in this plan have been developed with a commitment to providing a full ‘Swain experience’ this year, whether we are on-campus, online, or somewhere in between. Our mission remains unchanged regardless of the circumstances under which we carry it forward.

To date, we have successfully been able to begin the 2020-2021 school year on campus in a safe and healthy manner, in accordance with the guidance of health care professionals, and in line with governing regulations. Additionally, we have been able to accommodate those who are not yet comfortable attending school in person through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous remote learning. Of course, we continue to be mindful that the status of the pandemic remains dynamic and we are prepared to adapt quickly. Our plan for the year is designed to be flexible; we will address new public health concerns and situations as they arise.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been a challenge for children and adults alike. During this uncertain time, we want to remind you that we are truly ‘all in this together.’ The Swain community is at it's best when we are taking care of one another, and we are certain we will do just that through the months ahead as we remain flexible and patient. Thank you for working with us to make sure your children are safe, well, and receiving the best Swain has to offer this year.
