Should a concern arise about the behavior of a member of the community being notably outside of the letter or spirit of our safety guidelines, the community member may be asked to take part in an interview by a member of the Hawken COVID Response Team to better understand the situation. Notes from these interviews will be sent to the head of school. Should the head of school decide that the information gathered from this interview is concerning, he may choose to do a follow-up interview or may insist that the students in that family move to remote learning for a period of time. In situations where the departure from the safety protocols is egregious or a family is unwilling to follow the protocols, the head of school may choose to cancel the enrollment agreement for the student or to terminate the employment of an employee.  


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.
