COVID-19 Updates

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many recent changes to life, including how we carry out our commitment to educating our students while caring for their social and emotional needs. Families can access COVID-19 related information on this webpage as we continue to make updates. 
 

2020-21 Reopening Plan

Evansville Day School continues to monitor the local situation with regard to COVID-19. We believe that the ability to be flexible and nimble in our response to the challenges of this year are paramount. As such, we have created a 4 Level Plan (linked below) to allow for movement between varying degrees of precautions as risk factors change in our community. Head of School Kevin Kunst recently communicated these plans to our internal community, and we hosted a webinar for our families on July 22 to answer additional questions. At this point, our plan is to open our doors on August 12 as scheduled, and we intend to announce our opening level on or around August 5. We are also providing options for those families who prefer or need a remote learning option during this time.

Remote Learning Overview

Evansville Day School will allow students to move forward with curriculum using virtual platforms, recorded video, and/or online synchronous learning tools that have appropriate features to ensure online security. Updated information about how remote learning will look different this year will be available soon! One thing that remains consistent is that the physical and emotional well-being of our school community is our primary focus. Our learning structure supports flexibility and differentiation to support all learners. Our commitment remains strong in providing a developmentally appropriate academic experience for each child. EDS faculty will continue to connect frequently with students and parents and engage in regular assessments of the balance of instruction that will challenge and inspire our students. We are grateful for the opportunity to further deepen the “in partnership with parents” portion of our mission statement.
