We anticipate community members wearing masks inside, apart from when eating, and when not able to socially distance outside.
To start the year, and for the foreseeable future, students will not be able to visit in other students' dorms. This is in support of community health and safety.
Yes. While the term may not be equal to the time spent in the classroom during a semester-long course, all goals and objectives will be met. After successful completion of the trimester course, the student will receive 0.5 credits. All full-year courses will remain as a 1 credit course value.
Marianapolis is actively planning for a return to competitive athletics in the fall as well as non-competitive activities for students on campus.
The fall interscholastic season may proceed in full; it may be abridged.
If competitive athletics are not possible, the school will offer alternative activities during the afternoons for students. These will include non-competitive on site activities (i.e. drama) as well as intramural sports.
In the event that competitive sports are not possible, many on-campus activities will focus on skill development in support of athletes' growth, in addition to strength and conditioning. Coaches of each sport will continue to work with athletes in support of their targeted goals.
At this time, we will not allow additional course selection. The trimester model is developed to support the students through any necessary accommodations associated with the COVID-19 situation. More specifically, this allows three terms to fulfill graduation requirements while providing a reduced course load at any particular time if needed.
Due to our transition to a trimester model, preliminary schedules will be posted to the portal at the end of July.
Yes, we would like for you to attend during the most convenient time period. With that in mind, know that Advisory is required twice per week.
No, this time slot is created for our students who are not on-campus and who face a time-zone constraint that does not allow for them to attend earlier in the day.
Yes, absence in this case is acceptable due to the time difference constraints. However, we do expect for you to attend the Virtual Advisory and take advantage of the Virtual Office Hours scheduled for you at 7:00-7:30 pm EST.
Students are expected to attend all requirements including Afternoon Gathering, Advisory, Peer Leadership, Wellness, and extra-curriculars during your enrolled season. This should be done "live" on campus as long as health and safety allows.
We will look to schedule our community through the lunch period in small groups, utilizing various areas on our campus to enjoy the meal.
Yes, these are the same courses as those offered during the traditional in-person school year. English Language History refers to the English I Geography course and the World History I course for our English Language Learners. We are offering a Virtual Class for those who cannot be on campus, from 6:30 - 8:10 a.m. (EDT). Once students are able to join us on campus, they can easily transition to the 8:15-12:20 class periods. This time in the early morning (for us) will support students in all time zones.
That is correct. For those students mainstreamed into all courses (based on their English Language acquisition), they will still experience the diversity of all their peers together in class. Our enhanced technology options will support those on-campus and virtual at the same moment, in the same class period.
Not yet. We are working to identify our best times and locations to ensure a safe experience for our students enrolled in ensemble courses. More information will be coming soon.
