While our students enjoy a much-needed summer vacation, we are busily preparing for a return to school this fall - welcoming students safely back to our campuses to learn, grow and celebrate together. With guidance from local, state and federal agencies and in consultation with our medical advisory team, we are developing detailed back-to-school protocols that will be shared later this week as part of our Perelman Ready Reopening Guide.
Our reopening plans include utilizing large open tents in our generous outdoor spaces for open-air learning and play, assigning students to small, grade-level cohorts to minimize contact and requiring all students and staff to perform daily health assessments, wear masks, practice appropriate physical distancing, and maintain personal hygiene with regular handwashing and sanitation.
Much will be different this school year, but the important things remain the same. Perelman students will continue to benefit from our close-knit community, offering a robust general and Jewish studies curriculum – empowering them to imagine, reason and problem-solve in two languages. And, as always, our students will learn to be strong, flexible, and resilient - skills that continue to serve them during these unprecedented times.
