September: Important Update on the Upper Campus Start of the School Year

Student Testing Prior to September 30
All Upper Campus students whose families have selected on-campus learning starting on September 30 are required to take a baseline COVID-19 test prior to September 26 and are asked to report the results to the school.  Once Upper Campus students return for on-campus instruction, they will be required to be tested, per recommendations by country or state regulations, no less than every 30 days and will be asked to report the results to the school.  Trinity plans on hosting these baseline testing events.

Trinity is hosting COVID-19 testing on September 24 from 8:30 to 3:00 on the Upper Campus.  Our partner is PMH Laboratories PMH Laboratories.  Families are welcome to use their family physician if so desired.

If you would like to sign up your child for a COVID-19 test on Thursday, September 24, please do so here COVID-19 Test Sign Up.
The self-reporting result form, which is confidential for the school and to be completed by families is here Self-Reporting Form.
It is our understanding there will not be a cost to any family for this test.  Expect more information early next week on documents to bring to the test or information for families who may not have medical insurance.
The Reopening Survey for On-Campus Learning
The majority of Upper Campus families have completed the survey regarding their intent to be in-person learning or to remain in distance learning.  This information is essential to our planning.  If you have not yet filled out the form, please do so here Parent Survey Reopening.

Quarantine Period
As outlined in our reopening plan, a 14-day quarantine period will be in effect for all students, faculty and staff following air travel and/or visiting heavily impacted areas.  For out of state car travel, the quarantine period will be 10 to 14 days depending on the specific case positive COVID-19 metrics for the state. Please inform the school if you are traveling by air, visiting a heavily impacted area, are traveling out of state by car, or if you have questions.  We are currently 15 days away from our potential reopening.

I know this is a lot of information to digest and I very much appreciate your attention to the details.  We can only open – and remain open – if we are vigilant in our adherence to protocols in our home and school partnership.
