Fall Reopening Update

We’re pleased to be able to share an update on our progress toward a safe and educationally robust reopening this fall. 

We share your fervent desire to return to campus, and we are working toward that as our primary goal. As long as Delaware County remains in the green phase of COVID-19 reopening, we are planning for a full school day on campus (with recess!) in September.

When you read our plans here, please keep in mind that these are based on the current situation and our expectations of what will be possible this fall. Plans may need to change, based on shifting COVID-19 circumstances and state decisions. Also, please understand that our diverse Benchmark community is made of many individuals, some of whom are at higher risk than others for contracting COVID-19. We have made decisions that seek to protect the health of our entire community.

We will share additional information about our reopening plans in mid-August.
