Leading up to the return to campus by students in August 2020 we 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, allowed our faculty and students to learn in-person on campus much of the 20-21 school year.
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 Elgin Academy community through email and posted on the Community Update page. Additionally, updates are included on the Together on the Hilltop sub 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.
As we look forward to welcoming everyone back to campus for the 2021-2022 school year, Elgin Academy is committed to having students, faculty, and staff on campus throughout the year. We will continue to evaluate, modify, and update our protocols as guidance allows. Thank you in advance for your flexibility and adaptability as we all work together.
