The successful reopening of school depends on collaboration and trust between school leadership, faculty, staff, students, and families. Everyone has a critical role to play. We need families to:
 
Complete medical forms
Parents need to complete and submit all required documentation through our forms system by the start of school. This includes vital information including emergency contact information should your child present with a fever or become ill during the day.
 
Remain home if sick
It is critical that students, faculty, and staff stay home if they are showing signs or symptoms of COVID-19 or are feeling sick. Parents/guardians should report illnesses to the school and provide updates if symptoms persist or change, just as employees will report to their supervisors regarding illnesses. This information will remain confidential.
 
Stay home if exposed, unless vaccinated
If you or someone in your household is diagnosed with or is unvaccinated and exposed to the COVID-19 virus, it is vital that you contact your doctor and the school.
 
Notify the school with positive COVID-19 test results. 
Families should email their division director about any positive test results and also send a notification message to health@hawken.edu. The Absence Form should also be filled out if a student will not be in school.
