Response to COVID-19

For the past few months, we have been carefully considering and evaluating a number of scenarios for the start of school in August.

Pinewood School recognizes that we are a critical community institution serving teachers, staff, students, and families. An outbreak of a highly infectious disease on any of our campuses would be detrimental to the entire community. This Reopening Plan aims to define implementation measures to prevent or reduce COVID-19 transmission in our school setting while meeting the educational needs of all students. This document applies to grades Kindergarten through 12. We are dedicated to following this infectious disease preparedness plan, providing implementation of communications, and establishing guidelines in advance for potential challenges.

The majority of our teachers have been trained in blended learning so we can switch from remote to in-person without disruption.

*Our comprehensive Safety + Operations Manual is available to all current Pinewood families by logging in to the parent portal.
