Hammond School Anticipates Return to Classroom Instruction for Fall 2020
Hammond Headmaster Chris Angel announced today that the school is planning for an on-campus start in August 2020. The school is working on a variety of different scenarios, with plans underway to phase in a campus opening over the summer months, including graduation for the Class of 2020 on June 20.
According to Angel, “We anticipate a gradual re-opening over the summer months that includes a graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020, held on our campus. We place a premium on classroom time and the interaction that occurs between a teacher and student that no amount of quality virtual learning can replace. The safety and wellbeing of our school community is paramount, so we will ensure that we have a safe and workable plan in place for the benefit of everyone. While the situation is fluid, we will be working closely with different groups to help make this possible.”
