COVID-19

In connection with local health officials, we continue to monitor guidelines and measures in relation to COVID-19 virus. As of 3 pm on March 17th, both campuses are officially closed to the public. As we progress through Virtual Learning Guidelines, it is imperative for students and families to stay in good communication with their teachers. You may email them at anytime to get further support and clarification. Please access our faculty directory here. Because the public health situation is rapidly evolving, school guidelines may change, and we will continue to update parents on a regular basis.

Please be reminded that the excused absence policy is still in effect. If your student is under the weather and unable to attend their virtual classroom, they still need to make their teacher aware, but they are not expected to check into their virtual classroom if they are sick. To reiterate, an unplanned absence is defined as an absence resulting from illness. Students will be able to make up work, and teachers will assist students with missed instruction. The student should email their teacher on the first day the student returns back to virtual learning to get all missed assignments if the teacher has not already shared with them through Google Classroom or to schedule any missed quizzes or tests. Parents should email sue.nobles@deerfieldwindsor.com between 7:45 and 8:45 am the morning of the absence.

If you would like to check your child's attendance to their Virtual Classes, remember that attendance is kept daily and records absences only. This can be found in ParentsWeb, listed under Student in the family portal right under the Grades section.

It's important to remember the vast majority of people who contract COVID-19 experience mild symptoms or no symptoms, yet we understand people are rightly concerned since this is a new illness, and we still have a lot to learn about it. To minimize the spread of this and other illnesses such as the flu, it is vital that you practice proper hand hygiene, avoid people who are sick and stay home if you're not feeling well.

Deerfield-Windsor School will continue to observe CDC recommendations and guidelines. Please refer to these often to stay updated.

Please be aware that travel to restricted areas may impact students’ ability to return to school immediately from that travel.
