We remain committed to offering all of our students the opportunity for in-person learning, while doing everything possible to ensure the health and safety of the Hebrew Day community.   

Our commitment to the physical and emotional health and safety of your children is paramount, as is our commitment to their education. We fundamentally believe in-person is best, allowing our students to be emotionally and socially engaged with their peers and their teachers.

When there are positive cases in our community or students have close contacts, our school is required to follow different protocols for Preschool and K-8.   This means that 2 identical situations that occur in Preschool and K-8 may result in different quarantine times.   The links to the K-12 and Child Care guidelines are listed below.  Please also be aware that these decision trees change frequently, sometimes weekly!   We know it is confusing, but rest assured that the Task Force reviews and follows these guidelines carefully (we are legally required to do so in order to stay open as a school and childcare facility).

Childcare (Preschool) Decision Tree

As we enter in cold and flu season, we are beginning to see an increase in common cold symptoms like runny nose and cough.   If your child has any symptoms, please do not send them to school!  We don’t want to have to call parents back to pick up their child.  If you are not sure if you should send your child to school, it is always best to contact the school and get further direction.
