COVID-19 Update

Dear Hyde Community,

On January 4th, 2021, Hyde School welcomed our students back to campus for in-person learning.  We put in place several protocols to create our campus “bubble” for the winter term.  All students were required to arrive on campus with a negative COVID-19 test and quarantine in their dorms for approximately ten days prior to receiving a second test.  While in quarantine, students participated in remote classes, school meetings, Discovery Groups, as well as outdoor activities in dorm cohorts.

On January 14th, in partnership with CIC Health in Cambridge, Massachusetts, we were able to test our entire student body and a group of employees.  Once we confirmed that our “bubble” was intact, in-person learning resumed on January 18th, 2021 with increased vigilance, including heightened masking, physical distancing, and hygiene protocols.

While we continue to chart our course through these challenging times, we reaffirm our  commitment to keep our community safe and healthy while delivering the Hyde education in person.  Additionally, we will continue to follow Maine and federal CDC guidelines to maintain our campus “bubble.”
