Traditional band and choir activities will be suspended until further notice based on the risk of airborne transmission, although strings, percussion, and electronic music remain viable options. There may be some opportunity for outdoor performance throughout the year. Choir and band activities will have virtual opportunities, and all private lessons will happen virtually as well. Modified drama will still be possible on a scaled-down version and can be pursued in the afternoons in lieu of sports activities.
All clubs and extra help will be virtual to begin the year. In a typical week, we have created a virtual X Block at 4:00 pm on the following days: Wednesday for the entire school, MS virtual X on Mondays and Thursdays, and Upper School virtual X on Tuesdays. Some required programs will take place during virtual X for Middle School students. In addition, students should use this time to connect virtually with clubs or pursue extra help with teachers, who will all be available virtually if they are not coaching. In the spirit of limiting the amount of mixing and transitions on campus, we believe these activities are best served in this virtual paradigm.
