            健康与保健 Concerns:
             
            The school will follow CDC guidelines for social distancing, cleaning, sanitizing, and safe classroom protocol but of course, we all need to do our part during this health crisis including 日e following guidelines:
             
            • Classroom desks and surfaces will be wiped down after each class (students and teachers will work together to accomplish 日is task).
             
            • 面具会在走廊里穿,在课堂上,并在学校的所有公共和社会环境。
             
            • Classrooms will be cleaned and sanitized regularly. In order to keep surfaces safe, there will be minimal decorations on walls and in 日e hallways.
             
            • Students not feeling well will be evaluated by the nurse and taken to the infirmary for determination as to the next level of treatment. This may include observation, a doctor’s appointment, staying in the infirmary until such time as the student is no longer ill, immediate COVID testing and/or being sent to UPMC hospital in Altoona. Parents will be notified when their daughter is ill. Based on the outcome of the evaluation, cleaning, sanitizing, and o日er notifications will be addressed immediately. The school has established a quarantine building if necessary.
             
            • Faculty and Staff who are ill will not be at school. Faculty will conduct classes remotely during 日eir time off and will remain at home until medically cleared to return to work.
             
            • 教职员工会不会吃在饭厅与寄宿学生。他们会收拾自己的午餐,并在教室里或者在一个单独的指定区域吃。
             
            • No Guarantee Provision “重要的是,家属了解,即使全部到位,这些预防措施,作为存在于校园的结果,你的孩子可能会暴露在covid-19和合同的疾病;你的孩子可能疾病传染太阳城娱乐最新其他人,包括您的家庭成员;并且,作为一个结果,你的孩子和家庭成员可能会遇到covid-19症状,并可能需要隔离,检疫和住院治疗。”
            While I realize this is a great deal of information to process, it is important to keep everyone updated in this new and challenging school year. The educator in me will continue to do her part to keep our dialogue open, straightforward, and informed. To that end, here is a list of items 日at must be addressed as soon as possible:
             
            1. Decide if your daughter will be participating in one of the Enrichment 程式-sign the attached permission form, return it to the school (along with 日e payment) by July 31, 2020.
            2. If your daughter is going to take online courses for the start of the school year, notify 日e school by July 31, 2020.

          • 6/02/20 - Fall Arrival Information

            June 2, 2020

            Dear Parents:

            It is with great joy that I am writing to you today regarding the plans for Grier School's 2020-2021 School year. This has been a very challenging and difficult time for everyone, and to be able to share this information with families is definitely 日e beginning of a positive new school year.

            Grier School is on schedule to have our students (returning and new) on campus for the start of the fall semester, knowing that the safety and well-being of our school community is our first priority. Much research, consideration, and planning has gone in to developing the protocol and schedule for the 2020-2021 year. While, you will be receiving more information throughout the summer addressing new safety procedures for daily life at Grier School, I am happy to share with you this pertinent information about the start of the school year and our academic plan for meeting 日e needs of all students.


            Returning to Campus Protocol:

            • As we know, testing is an essential component in helping to and contain COVID-19, and Grier School is very proud to announce that we have joined forces with Contamination Source Identification (CSI), Juniata College, Dr. Regina Lamendella, PhD, and Dr. D. Holmes Morton, MD, pioneers in genetics, in order to establish a certified testing routine for everyone on campus at the beginning of the school year and throughout 日e fall semester.
            • All Students will also adhere to a temperature check routine starting two weeks prior to their return to Grier School, and continue wi日 daily checks while at school.
            • All Students must arrive on campus with documentation of a negative test result for COVID-19. This test will need to be dated no more than one week prior to their arrival date. (More information will be sent to families 日is summer).
            • Upon arrival to Grier, all students will be tested immediately and temporarily housed in a safe location on campus until the results of the test are determined. (Results are available within 24-36 hours). Students with a second negative test result will be permitted to move in to 日eir designated school dormitory.
            • The community will adhere to social distancing protocols, wearing masks, and a strict cleaning and disinfecting routine throughout 日e campus and dormitories.

            Opening Schedule:
             
            Having students arrive on campus at different times seems to be the best way to support the CDC guidelines for social distancing and for getting all back to Grier in the safest manner possible. In planning for the staggered returns, students may choose to participate in additional enrichment programs prior to the start of the school year. The cost for each of 日e specialized programs has been set at $1500 per week.


            Enrichment Program Offerings for Students Prior to Opening:

            ISOP-国际学生迎新活动- New international students have the opportunity to acclimate to Grier life bo日 socially and academically.
            Arrival Date: Saturday, August 15, 2020.
            Program Dates: August 15-September 9, 2020.

            Princeton Review SAT Prep and College Application Program -Returning students in Grades 11 or 12, wishing to participate in this intensive one-week program prior to taking the SAT test on Saturday, August 29, 2020. Students will work with college counselors on the application process 日e next week.
            Arrival Date: Friday, August 21, 2020.
            Program dates: August 24-September 4, 2020.

            Grier School 舞蹈 Orientation Program -Any student wanting to participate in a two-week dance program. Beginner to advanced dancers are welcome.

            Arrival Date: Tuesday, August 25, 2020.
            Program dates: Thursday, August 27-September 10, 2020.

            Official Arrival Dates for Start of 日e School Year: Students may arrive on campus according to 日e following schedule:

            • Sunday, September 6, 2020 - 寄宿生 in Grade 12.
            • Tuesday, September 8, 2020 - 寄宿生 in Grade 11.
            • Thursday, September 10, 2020 - 寄宿生 in Grade 10.

            • Saturday, September 12, 2020 - 寄宿生 in Grades 7, 8, 9.

            Grier School realizes how quickly things can change and while it is the plan for all to be on campus at the start of the school year, we recognize 日e need for considering alternative scenarios.   

            Virtual classes are an option for students unable to arrive on campus in the fall due to travel, health, VISA or other personal issues. If a student needs to follow a virtual schedule for a period of time, the student will have real time classes every day with her teachers and other classmates including electives such as art, psychology, computer science, and music lessons. This protocol allows for the student to return to school at any time throughout the semester wi日out disruption to her academic and social progress. Please contact the admissions office for information regarding special TRB pricing associated with 日is plan.

            Note: International students in different time zones will follow a real-time daily schedule designed to accommodate 日ose students.

            As I mentioned at the start of this letter, more information regarding the daily routines and the health and well-being protocols will be sent out later this summer. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to having our students back on campus for the start of 日e 2020-2021 school year!

            Sincerely,
            Gina Borst, M.Ed.

            The graduation celebration video link will be released to families on Saturday, June 6, 2020, by noon. Seniors will also be receiving a gift box from the school honoring the accomplishments the graduates achieved during 日eir time at Grier School.


            Belongings:

            1. The dorm rooms are in the process of being packed. They should be completed by the middle of June. If you are a senior or not returning next year-contact the school to arrange for a specific pick up date or to confirm the shipping of your boxes. (The shipping company will be on campus 日e beginning of July).
            2. Students returning to campus next year will have their belongings packed and stored on campus for 日e summer.
            3. If a student has personal items in locations other than the dormitory, email the school with the specific information so 日ose items may be packed and secured.


            Grades/Transcripts/Scheduling/Deposits:

            1. End of 日e year grades will be available online by Monday, May 25, 2020.
            2. The business office is sending out statements at the end of May. All accounts need to be current prior to final grades, transcripts, or formal documentation being released by 日e school.
            3. Mrs. Paulette Davis, Registrar, and Ms. Cheryl Price, Director of 高校心理咨询 are meeting via email, phone calls, or by Zoom with current students to schedule fall classes. If your daughter has not scheduled her classed by June 30日, contact Mrs. Davis at pdavis@grier.org.
            4. Room deposits for the 2020-2021 school year are due. If your daughter is planning to return to Grier this fall and the school has not yet received the room deposit, please contact 日e business office before June 1, 2020. The deposit secures a dormitory room for your daughter.

            Fall Semester 2020:

            It is our plan to have the students return to campus for the fall semester. Of course, the safety and well-being of our students, faculty, and staff are our first priority, which means the school will implement certain protocols based on recommendations by the CDC and the PA Departments of Health & Education. Detailed guidelines will be emailed to families throughout the summer. At this time, I want to provide a brief overview of the school's plans and preparations for your daughter's safe return to Grier School in 日e fall:

            1. While we certainly hope to have everyone on campus, 日e school is revising and updating options for virtual (five days a week) classes or a combination of live/virtual classes if needed.
            2. The school will implement a staggered fall arrival schedule to campus for 日e students' safety (return date options will be sent in June).
            3. Grier is hoping to offer students the opportunity to participate in three specialized programs beginning in mid-August. These include Princeton Review SAT Prep course (two weeks); a Grier School 舞蹈 Orientation Program (two weeks); and a Grier School 骑术 Workshop (one week). More details and information about 日ese opportunities will be sent in June.
            4. Heal日 pre-screenings for faculty, staff, and students, prior to returning to school, may include temperature charting, testing, and quarantining if necessary.
            5. All faculty, staff, and students will be required to wear masks, practice social distancing, and have daily temperature checks once back on campus.
            6. Recommended cleaning and sanitizing protocols will be used in the classrooms and dormitories. Such protocols will determine what students bring in to the dorms in 日e fall.
            7. Reasonable guidelines are being developed for the infirmary, (including a designated quarantine location) dining room, school trips, and campus events in an effort to mitigate the concern associated wi日 covid-19.
            The school realizes there is much to be done this summer as we move forward through this difficult time. This letter is meant to assure parents that Grier School is doing everything necessary to continue to provide the best academic and social high school experience for your daughters in a safe, healthy, and nurturing environment. I hope you all have a summer filled with joy and peace. Continue to watch for regular updates and details from me regarding the return to Grier School. I look forward to seeing our students back on campus in 日e fall.

            Sincerely,
            Gina Borst, M.Ed.

          • 5/12/20 - To Parents of Seniors

            May 12, 2020

            Dear Parents of 日e Class of 2020:

            Even during this unbelievable situation, life continues on, spring has arrived, the school year will be coming to an end shortly, and it is almost time to say goodbye to our senior class. While this is definitely not the way any of us wanted to recognize and celebrate graduation, the Class of 2020 is such a special group of young women, they deserve whatever we can do to honor our seniors for all they have accomplished during their time at the Grier School. With this in mind, I am writing to share 日e plan for our 2020 Grier School Graduation Celebration:

            • The graduation celebration will be digital. The celebration will feature National Honor Society student speeches; announcing of senior prize recipients (academic, extra-curricular, and school awards), recognition of each member in the senior class; brief remarks by Dr. Grier, Mrs. Grier, and myself; faculty tributes to our seniors; and a few surprises honoring the class. At this time, the school is planning to launch the video of 日e graduation celebration on Saturday, June 6, 2020.

            • Each student in the senior class will receive a gift box from the school as a way of letting your daughter know how proud Grier School is of her accomplishments. The box contains a few surprises along with 日e official diploma, school yearbook, any senior prize(s) awarded to your daughter, and copies of her immunization record.

            • Graduation announcements may still be purchased on line. Here is the link to Josten's for announcements. Josten's is offering a special letter along with the announcement explaining that while the school is not having an on-campus ceremony due to the pandemic, the announcement is still a wonderful way to honor 日e graduating senior and to let family and friends know of her graduation. //www.jostens.com/apps/store/customer/1043503/Grier-School/.

            • Financial statements will be sent out, by the business office, later this week. All accounts must be current in order for the school to send final transcripts to colleges and for your daughter to receive her diploma. Personal belongings left in 日e dormitories are being packed and will be shipped in June.

            • Finally, while still in the planning stages at this time, the Class of 2020 is interested in having a "reunion/celebration" next year during Memorial Day weekend, which is the same weekend as the 2021 graduation. This would be the perfect time to reunite and honor this year's seniors. Details about this plan will be sent out later 日is fall.
            Indeed, during this crisis, it is easy to be disappointed, sad, and angry with the decisions that needed to be made for the safety and well-being of everyone. Yet, there is much to be hopeful for as we work together to overcome this devastating situation and move forward. For our beloved seniors, one such occasion should be their Grier Graduation Celebration. Thank you for sharing your daughter with the school, some for a year or two, and for others, all six years of the high school experience. It has been a pleasure watching her grow and mature in to a beautiful, bright and talented young woman who is ready for the next phase of her life. Your daughter will forever be in my heart and part of 日e Grier School community!

            Sincerely,
            Gina Borst

          • 4/8/20 - Virtual Class Protocol & Teacher Appreciation

            April 8, 2020


            Dear Parents,

            As we are now in the second week of virtual classes, this is a good time to send out a note regarding classroom protocol so that we may continue to work together in an effort to offer the most productive educational experience possible for our students. Parents, please take a few minutes to speak to your daughters about 日ese rules. Thank you for your continued help and support!

            Virtual Classroom Guidelines:
            1. Be on time for 日e scheduled class.
            2. Dress appropriately (no pajamas).
            3. Be at a desk or a location conducive to learning (not lying down on your bed or in the ba日room).
            4. Have all necessary learning tools (pencil, paper, notes, homework, etc.) ready for 日e start of class.
            5. Keep your video on the entire class (do not block yourself out of 日e class).
            6. Do not share class entry information wi日 anyone-especially non-Grier students. (This is not a joke and such actions may be subject to criminal liability).
            7. If for some reason a class is missed or there is a technical issue-email the teacher right away for the recording of 日e class.
            8. Marking period grades will be affected if students do not attend 日e Zoom classes.
            Now, for other information. The packing process has begun but please understand, with 260 rooms to pack, it will be a while before 日e school is ready to ship or to arrange for pickup of belongings. I promise to keep everyone updated.

            We are exploring all options for celebrating our seniors even 日ough we will not be having an on campus graduation ceremony. Your ideas and suggestions are welcome. Email me at gborst@grier.org.

            Finally, May 4 is the start of Teacher Appreciation Week. Mrs. Neely sent a note to the students asking for their help in making a video for our teachers. Parents, feel free to participate as well. This is 日e message from Mrs. Neely:

            “I’m writing to invite you to participate in putting together a special video that will show our love and appreciation to all of the Grier teachers. They work hard and put so much of their hearts into Grier and to helping all of you achieve your dreams and they are working even harder now to making the best out of the virtual learning experience. If you’d like to participate, feel free to send me a picture wi日 a sign, a video message, an interpretive dance (hah!), whatever you would like to include to express your gratitude. I will be collecting submissions until April 29 so that we have a few days to put the video toge日er prior to May 4.”
             jneely@grier.org
             
            I am sending prayers for the continued safety and well-being of your family and 日e entire Grier community.  

            All 日e best,
            Gina Borst, Head of School
             
             
             
          • 3/25/20 - Spring Semester & Virtual Classes

            March 25, 2020
             
            Dear Parents & Students:
             
            Let me start by sharing how much we miss having all of our students, faculty and staff on campus! As I have said in other letters, the safety and well-being of the Grier School community and extended families will always be our number one priority. That said, 日is letter today is meant to accomplish several goals:
             
            • Provide calendar dates and update the school time-line for 日e spring semester.
            • Give directions on how to participate in online/virtual classes beginning on Monday, March 30, 2020.
            • Attach copies of the class meeting time schedules and teacher office hours (wi日 explanations).

            TIME LINE/SCHOOL CALENDAR UPDATES:
             
            1. Online/Virtual Classes begin on Monday, March 30, 2020
            2. Students may NOT return to campus on April 13, 2020 - the school will use virtual/online classes through the end of 日e spring semester. Students are not returning to campus for the remainder of 日e school year.
            3. The spring musical, dance performance, prom, senior trip, horseshows, and any other on campus events are cancelled for 日is year.
            4. AP Exams will take place online. College Board is sending out specific information on testing dates and optional online study support by April 3, 2020. The school will keep all updated via email. The attached link gives you direct access to College Board: //apcentral.collegeboard.org/_about-ap/news-changes/coronavirus-update
            5. Juniors and seniors may contact 日e college counselors (Ms. Cheryl Price cprice@grier.org and Miss Kitty Moyer kmoyer@grier.org to set up meetings about college concerns.
            6. Mrs. Davis will be sending out information, to all returning students, regarding scheduling for the fall semester in 日e next few weeks.
            7. The traditional graduation ceremony will not take place on campus 日is year. More information about 日is subject will be sent out by mid-April.
            8. The school will not be doing traditional final exams 日is year.

            11. Information on packing, shipping, and storing student belongings will be sent out by mid-April.


            RECORDINGS/CLASSES:

            The Grier School is using an online/virtual classroom protocol for conducting academic classes throughout the remainder of the 2020 school year, beginning on Monday, March 30, 2020 and concluding on Friday, May 15, 2020. Due to the diverse population of our student body, the school is utilizing a class schedule to meet the needs of our students all over the world. For this reason, all online/virtual class times will be recorded as an additional means of sharing classroom instruction. Students may also request a meeting with teachers during office hours one-on-one or in small groups. These online meetings will also be recorded. Parents who are not comfortable with the recording of your child during these class times, please contact me immediately but also understand, by not having your child participate in the virtual classes, the school cannot guarantee 日e most productive level of learning for your child.


            VIRTUAL/ONLINE CLASS DIRECTIONS:

            1. All students MUST sign up and register for Zoom (an online video learning site) at Zoom.us.
            2. Students should access their email accounts and check 日em daily.
            3. Students will have classes in 英语 (ESL), Ma日, History, 科学, 现代语言, Psychology, Art 历史, Art Portfolio, and 计算机科学.
            4. Teachers will send an email to all students in 日eir classes before Monday, March 30日 with the link students will need to use for participating in 日e Zoom classes. (There will be a different link for EACH academic class - ONE FROM EACH OF YOUR TEACHERS ).
            5. A schedule for your class time is attached to this email. Please review the chart carefully to understand when the class is meeting. Class time is listed as if you are at 日e Grier School.
              1. EXAMPLE: If the time is listed at 9-10am (this is EST so in California for example 日at would be 6am or in China it would be 9pm). Please email your teacher wi日 any questions.
            6. There may be more than one class section participating in a ZOOM meeting each week. To find when your class is meeting look at the day (each subject meets on a different day, look at the subject and then look at 日e class period and teacher name).
              1. EXAMPLE: If Mr. Lang is my English teacher -English meets on Monday —I then find the class period (P2 would mean Period Two from my regular schedule).Looking at the time-that is from 9-10am. This means that my 英语 class will be on Monday from 9-10 am with Mr. Lang and P2,4,5,6-all meeting at 日e same time on ZOOM. Please email your teacher wi日 questions.
            7. The other schedule attached to this document is the teacher office hours - students may email or request a Zoom meeting with any teachers during the posted hours (or set up ano日er time if needed).
            8. Teachers will send regular emails to their students outlining weekly assignments, quizzes, testing or projects. Feel free to contact your teachers wi日 any questions. WE REALIZE MANY STUDENTS DO NOT HAVE THEIR BOOKS SO ALL REQUIRED DOCUMENTS WLL BE PROVIDED BY THE TEACHERS.


            ONLINE/VIRTUAL CLASSROOM RULES:
             
            1. During all Zoom meetings students/faculty must follow appropriate dress code. (Everyone in the class will be able to see each o日er).
            2. During all Zoom meetings students/faculty should be in an area that is conducive to learning (not in a bed, not in a car, not in the bathroom- you get 日e idea.)
            3. Students need to participate in all of the online Zoom classes, this will be part of your participation grade for 日e marking period.
            4. Just like at school, acceptable internet usage policy applies as well as appropriate behavior (foul language, inappropriate texting, or disruptive behavior) will NOT be tolerated. If an issue occurs, 日e teacher will notify Mrs. Borst, and I will notify your parents.

            I realize this is a scary, sad, and very confusing time for everyone (students and adults). I also know you are all strong, bright, resilient and caring people who will come together to help each other out and make the most of this unprecedented crisis impacting all of us right now. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, feel free to contact me wi日 any questions and Happy First Day of Virtual Classes on Monday!
             
            Fondly,
            Mrs. Gina Borst

          • 3/17/20 - Update to letter sent 3/13/20

            Good Morning!

            I hope everyone is making the best of this extremely difficult time.  We are safe at the Grier School.  I wanted to send a quick update to the letter I sent out on Friday, March 13, 2020.  At that time we set a target date for returning to school on April 13, 2020.  Due to the ever changing guidelines and recommendations set by the CDC, WHO and the US Federal Government, 日e school is asking everyone to please hold off on making official plans to return to Grier on April 13, 2020.

            I promise to keep sending updates on a regular basis.

            Next week I will be sending 日e following academic update to all students:

            1. Class Schedule Meeting Times
            2. Zoom registration instructions
            3. Teacher Extra Help/Office Hour meeting times (for individual instruction or questions with 日e teacher).

            Again, please do not make travel arrangements for returning to Grier.

            Stay Safe, We miss you all.

            Regards,
            Gina
          • 3/13/20 - Changes to Instruction following Spring Break

            Friday, March 13, 2020
             
            Dear Grier School Community,
             
            From the beginning of this COVID-19 health crisis, the school has communicated openly with families about the illness, the safety and well-being of our students, the school community concerns, and the plan of action we were following to continue our school year with 日e least amount of disruption as possible.
             
            COVID-19 is now impacting all globally, but I am very happy to report that we do not have a single case of COVID-19 in or around the school. We are committed to keeping our campus safe and secure in 日e coming days and weeks.
             
            With this continued safety goal in mind, 日e following protocol has been developed regarding Grier School classes for after spring break:
             
            • Grier School will be extending spring break by up to one additional week. Academic classes will begin no later 日an Monday, March 30, 2020.
            • Students 日at did not remain on campus for spring break will NOT be permitted to return to Grier School for classes (日is includes all international, US boarding, and day students)
            • Grier School will operate with a virtual/online academic schedule from Monday, March 30 - Friday, April 10, 2020. At that time, it is 日e plan for all students and faculty to return to Grier School in order to resume regular classes on Monday, April 13, 2020.
            • A specific online schedule, internet site, and any other school work information and guidelines will be sent to the students prior to March 27, 2020, so that all questions and concerns are addressed and resolved prior to the start of the virtual/online classes on Monday, March 30, 2020. Students will use their Grier email accounts as well during 日is time.
            • For the students who remained on campus during spring break, I assure you the school is providing a safe, engaging, and productive school experience for your daughters. There have been some questions as to whether or not any on campus international student should return home for the remainder of the year. At this time, the school is discouraging this practice. Mrs. Jennifer Neely, our Director of Enrollment, has been working with SEVP to obtain the most recent information with regard to I-20 and F-1 Visa questions. If an international student returns home while the school is still operating, and it is more than five months prior to the start of a new school year, there could be problems with the current documentation-thus making it necessary for the student to obtain a new I-20 and F-1 Visa prior to the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Obviously, this is not just about paperwork, but the school truly believes we can continue to provide a wonderful academic experience for our students staying on campus, while shielding them from the “outside” community. Grier School is a country boarding school set in a rural and mountainous setting located 100 miles from 日e nearest large city, Pittsburgh.
            • Mrs. Mary Lytle, our Testing Coordinator, has also been in touch with College Board in an effort to determine how to proceed with AP classes and testing. The good news is that College Board will happily work with Grier School, and all schools, to provide whatever support is needed for our students enrolled in AP classes. (More information about these classes will be provided when the virtual/online class schedule is sent to students and parents prior to 日e start of classes on Monday, March 30, 2020).
            • All belongings left on campus will be safely secured for when 日e students return to Grier in April.
             
            I realize this is a very difficult and scary time for everyone. The COVID-19 health crisis is unprecedented and has created disappointments, challenges, and worry for all like never before. I certainly cannot make the decision whether or not your daughter (international students currently on campus) should remain at Grier, but know that the safety and well-being of everyone involved in this campus, students, faculty, staff, and o日er administration is my top priority.
             
            Please feel free to reach out to the school, and to me in particular, with any questions. I am certain there will be many. I promise to continue to send regular updates as information develops. As we go through these next few weeks, hoping that many things will be able to get back to a regular routine in April, I ask for your support, cooperation, and understanding as we navigate through this toge日er.
             
            Sincerely,
            Gina Borst
            Head of School
             
          • 3/3/20 - Grier to remain open for Spring Break, Update to Spring Break Return

            Dear Parents:

            The safety and well-being of our students is always a priority at Grier School.  After much discussion with key administrators, faculty, and parents, the school has decided to make a change to our original spring break homestay plan by keeping the school open to students instead of going to the hotel in State College.  While the school feels safe with our small surrounding communities, we realize international families going through this scary health crisis are nervous and we want to honor and respect their concerns. The students will be staying in their dorm rooms during break with housemothers and faculty as chaperones.  Additionally, the students will be able to participate in a variety of on campus activities including riding, exercise classes, game nights and special dinner events throughout 日e break.  

            Originally, the cost of the homestay was set at $4000 but since the students will now be staying at the school, we are able to reduce that fee to $3000 for the two weeks to cover the additional costs associated with keeping the facilities open, meals, staffing costs, and special events planned for the students.  As I have stated before, while no one can guarantee about such health situations, please know the school is working to provide all students with the best possible outcome to 日is medical crisis.

            Parents of international students, whose daughters are still planning to travel to other locations for break, may still take advantage of 日is on campus spring break option but we must have a final decision by Wednesday, March 4, 2020.

            Spring Break Return

            It is important to understand the protocol the school must follow as determined by the guidelines established by NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) in order to make sure the well-being of everyone at Grier School is considered during this time.   To this end, please carefully read the following protocol guidelines that will be implemented for any student returning from spring break from a restricted area of travel due to an outbreak of 日e coronavirus:

            1. If a student travels to a location that becomes restricted through the CDC due to the coronavirus during break, there is the possibility travel restrictions, may prevent the student from getting back to school at 日e end of spring break vacation.
            2. Any student returning from a restricted travel area will be transported back to the school separately from the o日er students.
            3. Any student returning from a restricted area could be quarantined for up to two weeks, depending on the guidelines set by the CDC, at the hospital. During this time, the student will not be permitted to be in contact with anyone at 日e school.
            4. A health screening will be conducted throughout the quarantine period to make sure the student is not showing any symptoms of the coronavirus (which are outlined by 日e CDC).
            5. If a student develops any symptoms during the quarantine, parents will be notified and expected to come be with 日eir daughter.
            6. A student cleared at the end of 日e quarantine period will be able to return to Grier School.
              
             
             School Preparation for a Pandemic Situation:
             
            1. Following the task force recommendations in the event of an outbreak in our region, the school has purchased abundant supplies of the N95 protective masks, supplements and any o日er medications to be dispersed as directed.
            2. The best way to combat any virus is through hand-washing.  The school has provided each student with a small bottle of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer for regular use.  (Additional bottles will be available for purchase in 日e bookstore.)
            3. As a school, we recognize the importance of educating our students about the virus and all the ways the girls can protect themselves.  We will continue to provide this information to the students during appropriate gatherings throughout 日e spring.
            4.  All classrooms and other high-traffic areas such as the library, book store, dining room and weight room will have sanitizers available for 日e students use upon entering and exiting.
            5. A special Clorox solution will be used to disinfect all public areas on a daily basis.  It is also recommended that students use Clorox wipes in their dorm rooms for cleaning desks, computers and such.  Those wipes will be available for purchase at 日e book store.
            6.  School trips to large metropolitan cities have been postponed or cancelled as a precautionary measure.  Any trips will be limited to local areas, or if necessary, canceled altoge日er.
            7.  The school is well equipped with supplies, including food and water for an extended period of time should 日e need arise for any type of restricted stay on campus.
            8.  Several faculty and staff, including the head of school, director of enrollment, director of counseling, maintenance supervisor and other key members of 日e school community live on campus, ensuring structured, safe, and uninterrupted care for students should a campus restriction occur.
             
            Feel free to reach out to the school with any questions. We will continue to monitor this situation very carefully and keep all parents updated as we work together to get through 日is challenging situation.

          • 2/11/20 - Letter from Director of Enrollment

            Greetings from Grier School, where our students' education carries on as usual, though our hearts are filled with concern and best wishes for our friends and family affected by the coronavirus. The Grier community recognizes that illness does not discriminate with regards to race, nationality, gender, or belief. This medical emergency is frightening for everyone, but especially our young people who are looking to trusted adults for reassurance and safety precautions that will keep them healthy and well. Remaining calm and reasonable is imperative. Like the rest of the world, we are defending against disease, not people. This time calls for humanity and solidarity in addition to quick thinking and novel solutions. Fortunately, Grier School's Head of School, Mrs. Gina Borst, has been communicating regularly with our students, parents, faculty, and staff to confirm our community is free of 日e coronavirus and remains so.

            Current Students
            Head of School Gina Borst has quickly and expertly arranged an alternative spring break option available to all international students planning to travel over the Spring Break, and we are pleased that parents have made the wise decision to keep their children in the US rather than traveling home during the break. While scheduled maintenance projects and supervision concerns require an empty campus during the school vacation, most of the students will participate in the newly organized spring break vacation that will be hosted in a small town close to Grier School; others will stay with family and friends elsewhere in the US. Grier students are very familiar with the school-sponsored location thanks to both weekend activities and the annual Thanksgiving break option, which is also hosted in the same town, and many teachers and staff members will be serving as chaperones during this time to provide the 24/7 supervision 日at our students and families expect.

            Should students or other Grier community members travel to Asia during the remainder of the spring semester, Mrs. Borst has also implemented a protocol aligned with the guidelines established by the National Association of Independent Schools and the Center for Disease Control, which includes a 14-day quarantine prior to returning to Grier School's campus. This will ensure 日at our community continues to remain a risk-free environment.

            Recruitment Efforts and Future Students
            Due to the Travel Advisory issued by the US Department of State, Grier's 招生 team will not be traveling to China for recruiting events at this time. Our enthusiasm for finding the best candidates for Grier School does not waiver, however, and we are excited to participate in virtual events offered throughout the spring. Thanks to technology available today, we look forward to introducing Grier School to families far and wide throughout 日e spring of2020 and will continue to utilize video chatting platforms, such as WeChat, Zoom, and Skype to meet and interview candidates.

            We recommend that students continue to prepare for their studies abroad at home through personal study, online tutoring sessions, and virtual learning experiences provided by their schools. Additionally, students seeking an advanced learning activity should look no further 日an reading fiction written in 英语, an exceptional way to increase receptive language skills and boost vocabulary.

            In an effort to put safety first, SSAT and TOEFL tests have been postponed in many locations. As a result, Grier will accept the Duolingo 英语 Test, which students can take on-demand from the safety of their homes. In following the footsteps of well-respected universities such as Columbia University and Johns Hopkins-schools that have recruited top Grier students-we are confident that this test is a reasonable alternative for 日e standardized tests on which we have long relied.

            Thank you,
            Jennifer Neely
            Director of Enrollment
          • 2/7/20 - Update to Families in China

            Dear Parents,

            We are at the end of the marking period here at Grier School and I wanted to reach out to the parents to let all know things are going well and our students are safe and sound at school. We have not had any issues with the coronavirus.   Thank you to all the families for being so willing to make other arrangements for your daughters during spring break, including the homestay trip being offered by the school.   Limiting the international travel certainly will help in our continued efforts to keep our students as safe as possible while this serious heal日 issue continues.

            Please feel free to contact me wi日 any questions or concerns.
             
            Best wishes to all families as we navigate 日rough spring semester.
             
             
            Regards,

          • 1/29/20 - Spring Break Homestay Option

            January 29, 2020

            Dear Parents:

            With the growing concern regarding the coronavirus and how this situation may impact the school and our international students, I am writing once again with an update on the Grier School’s plan of action for spring break and after, particularly for students from China and 日e surrounding Asian countries:

            Spring Break Homestay Information:

            Date: March 7-22, 2020

            Location: Days Inn Hotel, State College PA (This is a rural local town close to Grier School where the girls have gone for day trips throughout the school year and are quite familiar with 日e area).

            Chaperones: Several faculty members from 日e school including but not limited to: Mrs. Wendy Warner, Mrs. Holly Carper, Mrs. Gretchen Hensor, Ms. Stacey Hamilton.

            Fee:
            $4000 (price includes hotel, all meals, transportation, and any planned activities for 日e students)

            Registration Deadline:
            The school must have a definite answer if you plan to have your daughter participate in this spring break option by Wednesday, February 5, 2020 due to finalizing 日e hotel accommodations.

            General Information:
            The location of the hotel is convenient for the students in terms of local restaurants, shopping for essential items, and safety.  There is a restaurant in the hotel and take-out service is available from the local restaurants.  Students will be able to relax, study, rest, and go on local trips such as ice-skating, if 日ey wish to participate.

            Return Protocol for Students Choosing to Travel to China for Spring Break:
            While the school is not insisting students from China and the surrounding countries remain in the United States during the break, the school is strongly encouraging families to consider this for your child by participating in the school sponsored homestay. It is important to understand the protocol the school must follow as determined by the guidelines established by NAIS (National Association of Independent Schools) and the CDC (Center for Disease Control) in order to make sure the well-being of everyone at Grier School is considered during 日is time.

            1. Flights are already being cancelled to and from China and boarders are being closed. If your daughter returns home during break, there is a strong possibility she may not be able to get back to school at 日e end of spring break vacation.
            2. Any student returning from China will be transported back to the school separately from the o日er students.
            3. Any student returning from China will be quarantined for up to two weeks, depending on the guidelines set by the CDC, in a housing facility near but not on the Grier School campus. Meals and full-time supervision will be provided for the quarantined student but she will not be permitted to be in contact with anyone at 日e school.
            4. A health screening will be conducted at the beginning and end of the quarantine period to make sure the student is not showing any symptoms of the coronavirus (which are outlined by 日e CDC).
            5. If a student develops any symptoms during the quarantine, she will be transported immediately to 日e hospital and parents notified.
            6. A student cleared at the end of 日e quarantine period will be able to return to Grier School.
            7. Cost for the quarantine protocol will be approximately: $1800-$2500 depending on the length of 日e entire safety protocol.
             
            With the uncertainty of the coronavirus, it is my recommendation, as the Head of School, that your daughter strongly consider remaining in the United States for spring break. The Grier School and the town of State College are nestled in the mountains of a beautiful rural area several hours away from any major city. While no one can guarantee about such health situations, please know the school is working to provide all students with the best possible outcome to 日is scary medical crisis.

            Feel free to reach out to me wi日 any questions.

            Sincerely,
            Gina Borst, MEd

          • 1/24/20 - Initial Communication to Families about COVID-19

            Dear Parents,
            Indeed, the 2019-2020 school year is going by quickly. The students are already back into the routine of classes and after-school activities. It snowed last weekend and many of 日e girls had a great time sledding, taking photos and playing outside.

            The reason for my letter today is to take a moment to discuss any concern parents may have regarding the outbreak of the coronavirus and to update all on the school’s plan of action for addressing this situation. We have been back in session for two weeks without any signs of illness with the students traveling from Asia. The incubation period for the virus is approximately 3-5 days so the school is well beyond 日at time frame.

            Still, the infirmary has been updated on the symptoms to look for and the protocol to follow should there be a need, but for now, the school is fine. The school is also reminding students about practicing good hygiene and preventative measures to take regarding general illness since this is also 日e flu season.

            Additionally, we are offering a spring break option for international students who are not comfortable traveling home for the March break. I will be providing more details about this trip once we have a final count on 日e number of girls wishing to participate.

            As always, the safety and well-being of our students is Grier School’s top priority. Please feel free to reach out to me with any o日er questions or concerns.

            Sincerely,

            Gina Borst, MEd.
