Return to the Riverbank (COVID-19 Info)

From the beginning of coronavirus pandemic, Lovett’s priorities have been: health and safety, learning continuity, and community - all of which contribute so significantly to the development of a student’s “character and intellect to thrive in college and in life.”  Being that the health and safety of our community is critical to a return to in-person learning, all decisions regarding on-campus activity have been and will be made through that lens. 

Given the current medical landscape and the wide-scale accessibility of vaccines for children 12 and older, our goal is to create a less restrictive environment that remains safe for students, faculty, staff, and visitors in 2021-22. With guidance from our Health Center, we are closely monitoring CDC and state guidelines, engaging in conversations with like-independent schools, and using health-related data from summer camp programs both here and across the country to shape our protocols. Though we anticipate the reintroduction of many on-campus programs and face-to-face events, we know it is unlikely to be full pre-pandemic operations. To this end, we urge you to help us manage student expectations about the coming school year as we remain fluid and attentive to various considerations.
