The Curtis administration, faculty and staff are working intensively to launch a year of learning that sets our students up for success, keeps them connected with their teachers and classmates, and stokes their love of learning.
While the school's goal is to bring all students back to campus for in-person learning, we currently anticipate opening the school year remotely based on the likelihood that Los Angeles County will not be off the state's watch list within 14 days of the first day of school as mandated by Governor Newsom. The Curtis administration, in consultation with the Board of Trustees, has been simultaneously developing plans for many scenarios, depending on changing COVID-19 conditions, so that it can pivot quickly to in-person learning when permitted to do so.
Over the summer, teachers and academic administrators have engaged in intensive professional development around remote teaching and learning in order to deliver a best-in-class educational program to students in the remote learning environment. The school has also made significant technological enhancements in order to support our students and teachers, whether on or off campus, and is undertaking extensive modifications to facilities to promote the health and safety of our learning community once students return to campus.
