Tower Hill School is committed to abiding by and exceeding the State of Delaware’s guidance for the safe operation of schools. The state’s plan envisions three scenarios: 1) Minimal community spread exists in Delaware and school buildings re-open; 2) Minimal-to-moderate community spread exists in Delaware and buildings re-opening is situation dependent; and 3) Significant community spread exists in Delaware and school buildings are closed.
In response to these scenarios, Tower Hill is focused on three primary modes of operation: Tower Hill on Campus (in-person with health precautions and optional remote), Tower Hill Flex (in-person with health precautions and remote) and TowerHill@Home (fully remote).
The Return to Campus Plan pertains to both Tower Hill On Campus and Tower Hill Flex, whenever in-person operations are possible. The plan encompasses many different aspects of prevention and mitigation, physical distancing, mask wearing, testing and navigating campus in a way that promotes lower density.
