COVID-19 Update

This page will be updated as information becomes available and as new questions arise.

Just as we have done since March of 2020, we are working closely with public health officials to determine the best safety protocols for our school community. As protocols change, we will communicate with our families, faculty, and staff, and will continue to update this page.

  • Is instruction in person for the 2021-22 school year?

    Yes. All instruction is in person, and we are building community by once again coming together for traditions and rituals that include all-school meetings, division and grade-level activities, performing arts events, and athletic competitions. We’ve learned a great deal about how to modify some of those delivery systems to increase the safety of our community!

  • Are masks required?

    To deliver a Gregory School in-person learning experience for all of our students, we have begun the year with a universal masking requirement for everyone while indoors. When rates of COVID infection, particularly the Delta variant, decrease, we intend to move toward allowing vaccinated students to remove their masks while inside. 

    Masks will not be required outdoors for anyone, unless they are participating in an activity that may include close contact, such as playing basketball during lunch, in which case supervising teachers will require that masks be put on to continue play.

  • What other safety protocols are in place for in-person instruction?

    We are continuing safety protocols begun last year including frequent hand-washing, hand sanitizer available throughout campus, air purifiers in each classroom, social distancing, and outdoor learning spaces.

  • Are COVID-19 vaccinations required for all eligible students?

    While we are not requiring COVID vaccinations for enrollment and class attendance, vaccines are required for school-provided transportation such as interim week, athletics, and other group travel.

    We invite families to self-report COVID vaccines by emailing proof of vaccination to Ms. Joyce Caughron, our receptionist in Zeskind Hall (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).  As with all other medical information already required by the school, this information will be kept confidential.

  • Are visitors permitted on campus and are they be screened?

    Visitors to the school such as vendors and prospective families continue to be required to stop at the security gate for a health screening. Visitors are encouraged to conduct business by email or phone whenever possible.

  • How does the lunch program work?

    SAGE Dining is serving fresh lunches made on-site, including hot options served by SAGE staff and a large selection of grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, and fruit in the dining hall. However, students are continuing to eat outside.

  • Where can I find the school's COVID waiver?

  • Where can I find more information about COVID-19 for families in our community?

    Pima County maintains a Combined COVID-19 Information and Resources page focusing on local programs and opportunities, as well as information for schools and parents. In addition, they offer a "When to go Back to School" tool, to help parents navigate if their student contracts or is exposed to COVID-19
