Reopening Plan Update 8/5/20
Start of School
In order to provide for safe and orderly testing and repopulating of the campus, we have made an adjustment to the start of the year school calendar:
September 10 - Monitors arrive on campus
September 11 - Seniors, PGs, upper mids taking the Sept. 12 ACT arrive on campus
September 12 - Upper mids who are not taking the Sept. 12 ACT arrive on campus
September 14 - Mids arrive on campus
September 15 - Lower mids arrive on campus
September 16 - Classes begin
**Please note that new students should arrive on the day when their class comes to campus.
The State of Connecticut has recently clarified its guidelines for students coming from high-risk locations within the United States. Connecticut previously noted that families could avoid a 14-day quarantine by arriving in Connecticut with a PCR negative test. We recently learned that the exemption was not intended for schools and that all students arriving from high-risk locations will now need to quarantine. As a result, we cannot meet that need, and Taft will no longer offer an August 20th campus quarantine.
