Leading up to the return to campus by students starting on August 27th, we had developed a plan for managing individuals who exhibit symptoms of COVID-19 and communicating those occurrences to the Elgin Academy community. The many layers of safety that we have put in place, including social distancing and the wearing of masks, have allowed our faculty and students to be on campus as much as possible.
since that time the plan has continued to grow and evolve as we have learned more and as we have received new guidelines from state and local health departments. Those updates have been communicated to the community through email and are also included on our website on following Together on the Hilltop pages.
It has been gratifying to see how our community has worked together to keep each other safe and united. We sincerely appreciate your patience and willingness to adapt to the modifications we have made, and we will continue to strive to be as clear and concise in our communication of these updates and notifications of occurrences as possible.
