Wayland Academy is taking measures to maximize the on-campus and in-person experience for students, while also building in the flexibility to adjust our plans, if necessary, to accommodate new information about COVID-19, testing, vaccines, and other factors. While it is impossible to eliminate all risks, we are working diligently to reduce risks by taking reasonable and thoughtful precautions. These measures will include adjustments to our school calendar, new health protocols, reduced density in the classrooms and residential spaces, changes to our dining procedures, the ability to switch between in-person and online learning seamlessly as needed, and more. This page contains information about Wayland’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the Academy’s efforts to plan for a safe and thoughtful return to our campus for the second semester of the 2020-2021 academic year.
Wayland Academy continues to follow the guidance of local, state, and federal governments, as well as public health agencies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
