School Year 2020-21

What to Expect (Fall 2020)

 
August 10, 2020
Dear Falmouth Academy Families,
 
Thank you for your ongoing support as we continue to plan for next month’s return to school. We feel blessed to have received so many thank yous, as well as numerous words of encouragement about the work we are doing to ready ourselves for what’s to come. As promised, the intention of this message is to provide a definitive explanation of the school model we will be following when school opens in September. 
 
For reasons that I explain below, Falmouth Academy will initially open in the following hybrid model (please click the link below).
The school year began on September 8 with the return of the middle school students who were oriented to the new health, safety, and learning protocols. According to the hybrid plan in place for fall 2020, 7th and 8th-grade students will attend school on-site every day and the upper school will follow an alternating schedule of on-site and remote synchronous learning. The grades in upper school alternate between blue weeks (grades 7-10 on-site and 11 and 12 remote) and white weeks (grades 7, 8, 11, and 12 on-site with 9 and 10 remote.

Prior to coming to school, parents, faculty, and staff complete an online health survey. If they have symptoms, they must follow the COVID Health Guidelines. Questions about COVID should be emailed to covidresponseteam@falmouthacademy.org
