Fall 2021 Information

We are excited to welcome all of our students and faculty back to Meadowbrook for fall 2021!  We're going to have an amazing year together, with thriving students, soaring academics, and a vibrant community -- made possible by closely following COVID-19 safety layers. 

These layers of safety allow us to adapt to the evolving vaccination status of our community by implementing practical strategies on individual and grade/cohort levels. In addition to individual practices such as masking, testing, and distancing, we will continue to put in place physical resources such as increased ventilation, hand washing stations, and outdoor spaces for learning. 

On this page we outline the key layers and share other important information, like dates, school hours, and answers to some common questions, so please read on! 


 

COVID-19 Safety Layers

 Vaccinated Students and Faculty 

(strongly recommended for eligible students, required for faculty )

Masking

Optional indoors and outdoors.

 

Testing Only symptomatic testing is required.
Distancing No distancing required.
Cohorts

Each grade is its own cohort. Grades that have reached a critical mass of vaccinated students may mix indoors and outdoors. 

Meadowbrook's COVID Response Team and Health Staff will determine when a grade has reached a critical mass of vaccinated students that may adopt this practice.

Contact Tracing, Quarantine, and Isolation

In the event of a positive COVID-19 case on campus, Meadowbrook will use contact tracing, quarantining, and isolation, in accordance with state guidelines. Currently, vaccinated individuals are not required to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact. 

Our full protocols for a positive case and close contacts can be found here.
