The Summit’s Fall 2021 COVID-19 Response Plan, updated August 9, 2021.
Dear Summit Community,
With Spring Break around the corner, we are writing to inform you of our ongoing evaluation of The Summit’s COVID-19 response plan. The Crisis Response team continues to monitor national (CDC’s updated guidance, AAP’s updated guidance) and local (Springfield-Greene County Health Department) developments.
With positive cases within our school and local community on the decline as well as the advising that populations with low or medium transmission rates may remove masks, The Crisis Response team has approved the following policy amendment.
Beginning on Monday, March 28, 2022, student, staff, and visitor masking at The Summit will be optional. All students and staff should bring a face mask with them to school each day for indoor activities where physical distance of three feet or greater cannot be maintained.
Any change to our policy would not go into effect until Monday, March 28th, one week after our return from spring break to gauge any potential spike in transmission following the extended break.
The Crisis Response team will continue to monitor COVID-19 developments in the community and on campus in the week following Spring Break providing updates on policy amendments as necessary.
We remain grateful to each of our Summit families for joining us in placing student, faculty, and staff health and wellbeing at the forefront of our decision making. As we approach the latter portion of the academic year, we thank you for your continued partnership. We look forward to seeing many of you tonight at our annual Summit gala and wish you all a relaxing Spring Break.
With gratitude and appreciation,
Dr. Katie Heet
Head of School
