Opening of School Web Banner

On May 16, 2020, McCallie Head of School Lee Burns organized five task forces under the leadership of Assistant Head of School Kenny Sholl. The task forces were charged with developing recommendations for the reopening of school in the context of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. The task forces, which consisted of many members of the McCallie community, conducted their initial work over a period of three weeks in late May and June. A preliminary report containing both recommendations and open questions was produced on June 18. Subsequently many protocols recommended in the preliminary report were tested during summer programs and summer training for varsity athletes. No Coronavirus cases were reported during summer programs or summer training. Incorporation of new information as well as further consideration of open questions by the five task forces has resulted in this final report of recommendations.

The information below answers many specific questions about the start of school.
