Dear MCH Families
We are so happy to announce that based on recently updated guidance that was issued from the state last week, it appears as if all of MCH’s classrooms will be able to operate as 5-day programs, full time on campus in the fall! We have determined that we can maintain appropriate social distancing while also uniting our classroom communities into cohorts that are on campus together every day.
This will truly allow us to pursue our mission! These new guidelines will also allow on-campus instruction to feel more cohesive and ‘normal’ at both the Lower and Upper School programs. Please keep in mind that all classroom cohorts will still be separated from one another on campus until we are able to enter Stage 4.
Classroom cohorts for all programs will likely be as follows:
▪Ambarino (relocated to Building B downstairs)
▪Rosa (relocated to Building C upstairs)
▪New EC Classroom to be named (relocated to former Rosa space in Building A upstairs)
▪Anaranjado (relocated to Building C upstairs)At the Upper School level, we will also be offering a full-time School At Home experience for families who would like to remain part of the MCH community but feel more comfortable with their child participating from home.
We are still determining if this is possible for us at the Lower School, if you are interested in this option, please notify me via email.
In the event that a classroom cohort has to stay home due to Covid-19 exposure or a governmentally mandated school closure, we will be maintaining a robust School At Home program in the background of each child’s on-campus educational experience. This will make any required transitions between on-campus school and School At Home smoother and more fulfilling for everyone. More details on this will come your way as they are more fully developed.
Classroom cohort placements, student/teacher ratios and teaching staff will be announced later this summer.
We appreciate your patience and flexibility!
Stay Safe and Be Well,
Head of School
