The support teams across our campuses will continue to provide guidance to all members or our school community to deepen social and emotional competencies so all students and adults can heal, process, and thrive. Using research-based and proactive practices developed from leaders in social and emotional learning (SEL), such as the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence and the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), the support team has enhanced current programming in consideration of social distancing and the critical need to deepen our social and emotional competencies for all in our community. While parents will not be on campus, our team will continue to support them virtually when available. Additionally, the team has established an online presence to provide professional development, resources, and tools to support faculty, students, and parents. Our focus this year is to find and create opportunities for engagement and connection in creative and collaborative ways to help our community cope during this challenging time.

This restart guide represents our best thinking, as well as that of experts at some of the top medical and educational institutions in the nation. Thank you to all of our medical advisors and peer schools for your guidance in helping to identify the specific protocols and resources referenced in this comprehensive plan.
