Health and Safety Protocols

2021-22 Health + Safety Protocols

Updated: February 10, 2022

Friends School of Baltimore (the “School”) is committed to the safety and health of its community and to providing excellent, in-person educational programming for its students. The School provides the following protocols to guide the 2021-2022 school year. 

As we have all experienced for many months now, this is an ever-changing situation. The School, with the guidance of the Medical Advisory Group (MAG), continues to monitor the data available and continues to highly recommend full vaccination for all employees and eligible students.

We are all in this together, and the health of our community depends on everyone’s cooperation in helping to stop the spread of COVID-19. Please read and abide by our Community Code of Conduct. Adhering to these expectations is vital to supporting commitment to the safety and health of our entire community and to providing excellent, in-person educational programming for our students.

Below is a list of our 2021-22 Health and Safety Protocols. This information will evolve over time throughout the school year, as needed to remain in sync with current conditions.
