  • COVID Isolation Policy

    Students who test positive for COVID-19 may return to school after a 5-day isolation period, provided they adhere to the following guidelines: 
    • Must be fever-free for 24 hours and symptom-free.
    • Must submit a negative test result, taken on or after day 5, with the student’s name and date of test to the clinic. 
    • Must wear a mask around others on campus for 5 additional days. 
    Our isolation policy, mask requirements and other health and safety policies are subject to change as conditions evolve.

    We appreciate that a large proportion of our school community has chosen to get vaccinated, and urge individuals to continue to practice good hand hygiene, stay home when sick, and get vaccinated and booster shots when eligible.
  • Campus Mask Policy

    Masks are optional and recommended when indoors for all individuals on campus, regardless of vaccination status. 
     
    • Masks will continue to be required for all visitors to The Experiential School. 
    • We reserve the right to require masks at large indoor gatherings.

    This policy was made in consultation with the Shorecrest Health and Safety Task Force, and is designed to preserve the health and safety of our school community. We intend to continue to reevaluate this policy.
  • 2021-2022 Flexible Learning Program

    The Flexible Learning Handbook includes details of the Short Term and Long Term Flexible Learning Programs being offered this school year. 

    Shorecrest offers a modified Flexible Learning program for the 2021-2022 school year for specific, documented medical reasons. There are two categories of Flex Learners for 2021-2022. 

    Short Term Flexible Learners are enrolled in Flex due to a COVID infection or determination as a close contact of an infection. These students may enroll in the program only for the duration of their Department of Health mandated isolation or quarantine, and return to campus once the isolation or quarantine period ends. 

    Long Term Flexible Learners may enroll in Flex due to a documented COVID-related medical reason and must commit to the program for nine weeks at a time. Students on the Long Term Flexible Learning Program may transition out of Flex and onto campus only on dedicated Flex In/Out Days. Those dates for 2021-2022 are: 
    Monday, October 11
    Tuesday, January 4
    Tuesday, March 15

    If you would like to enroll your student in Flexible Learning due to a documented COVID-related medical issue, please contact School Nurse Donna Conroy at dconroy@shorecrest.org. All other non-medical-related questions about Flexible Learning should be directed to your appropriate School Head.
