Health and Safety
The health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff is of paramount importance. The Pandemic Operations Response Team, with guidance from Hackensack Medical Center, Dr. Allyson Agathis, our school physician; the New Jersey Department of Health; the EPA; the CDC; the American Academy of Pediatrics; and Governor Murphy, continues to work on specific strategies, among them in the following areas.
A robust academic program balanced with a strong sense of community in which students live, learn, and lead continues to be our hallmark. The Leadership Team and our faculty have created an optimal learning environment for all students and we offer social/emotional support to both students and their families. In order for students to grow and excel academically, they must feel safe. Our hybrid learning plan demonstrates attention to the whole student and embeds time and space for students to connect, recharge, and engage in an inspiring year of learning. We plan to make every effort to provide students with the full Kent Place experience, with a variety of curricular and cocurricular opportunities. And although we fervently hope that we will remain on campus for the entirety of the year, we have been preparing our faculty and staff to create structures that will continue programs should the need arise for remote learning.
While keeping within distancing and safety guidelines, we are committed to continuing the programs and cocurricular activities that help define what community at Kent Place means.
