Hebron Academy 2021-2022

Community Plan

 

Date of Update: Sep 7, 2021

The parents, students, faculty and staff of Hebron Academy support a safe and successful year of learning and school experience through our commitment to be a fully vaccinated community. We are here, in place, and ready to make the most of the opportunity ahead.

As a school, our intention is to make the best decisions for our community based on the most recent and accurate data available from the CDC and State of Maine CDC, in conjunction with the opinions of our experts and consultants. Our decisions will be informed, timely, and with the sole purpose of creating the best environment for our students so that they may have a safe, joyous and relatively normal school experience. 

In order to provide the best experience for our students, we ask for the continued partnership of our Hebron community of parents, students, alumni, faculty, staff, visitors and friends. 

 

As a member of the Hebron Academy community, I acknowledge my role in protecting the health and well being of all of us. For that stated purpose, I will abide by the following:

1. I will follow Hebron’s policies for health and safety, along with other regular school policies;

2. I will follow Hebron’s Visitor Policy for parent visitations and any other permitted campus visitors;

3. I will follow guidelines for weekend and vacation travel, with full knowledge that my choices may have a direct impact on the health and well being of my peers and colleagues, and I will follow the return to campus protocols;

4. I will wear a mask when in public spaces or in proximity to potentially unvaccinated individuals with full understanding that this one act is the best way to protect the school experience for myself and the entire community.

5. I understand that if I am not able to act in the best interests of the community, I may be asked to step away from Hebron Academy to ensure the safety of others.

Community Plan

The following policies are subject to change as the situation evolves.

Community life is at the core of who we are. The following protocols have been put in place to mitigate risk, while allowing us to engage in the varied and unique experiences that make Hebron so special. Based on our recent campus test results, we have updated our guidelines.

Whether to visit family or to tour a college campus, we recognize the importance of off-campus travel for our students. We also have many community members -- day students, faculty, and staff -- who will inevitably have contact outside of the Hebron “bubble.” Finally, we want our students to be able to take full advantage of the resources our area has to offer. We have therefore put the following guidelines in place to ensure we can offer these activities safely

Hebron will continuously monitor both the health of our community and the infection rates in the surrounding area. Should we need to increase our health and safety protocols by imposing greater surveillance testing, limiting travel off-campus, pausing athletic competitions with other schools, or mandating increased mask-wearing on campus, we are prepared to do so. For the moment, however, we will be implementing the following monitoring protocol

If there is a positive COVID-19 case, close contacts will be identified and traced. Vaccination status will determine how each contact is handled, but all contacts will be tested and quarantined or isolated according to CDC guidelines.
