The Year Ahead - Joining Together On Campus
Cannon School’s culture is one of our greatest strengths. In the coming months, we will continue to encounter complexity and uncertainty as we return to campus and form new habits together. This will require that we listen to and work with one another in a spirit of trust and flexibility. Trust in the belief that each member of this community is working with the best of intent to return safely and successfully to campus. Flexible in that we will have to adapt together to circumstances that will change, both in ways we can anticipate and in others we may not. The active choice to rely upon colleagues, leaders, experts, and friends who contribute so much to Cannon will help see us through to the other side of this historic moment.
Cannon's Reopening Plan Overview
On July 17, Cannon announced our plan to start school on August 20 in the Hybrid Learning model, shown in the graphic below. We plan to follow the Hybrid Learning model from August 20 - September 4. During the first two weeks of school, we will closely monitor public health guidance and assess Cannon’s safety measures and ability to achieve school-wide compliance while delivering upon our mission.
If public health metrics and Cannon’s initial assessments indicate that it is a safe and balanced decision to do so, we will pivot to the On-Campus Learning model (#1 in yellow) on September 8. If not, we will continue to follow the Hybrid model until such time as public health metrics and Cannon’s assessments deem otherwise.
Whether we are following the Hybrid Learning or the On-Campus Learning model, synchronous remote learning will be an option for high-risk students, and students in all grades, JrK-12, who may wish to choose this path. Students would be required to commit to this path for a designated period of time.
