  • May 26, 2022- May 26 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,
     
    This is our last week of testing, and I am grateful for all your flexibility and patience as we have worked to keep our community safe.
     
    Our testing this week revealed no new positive cases. With so many year-end activities this week and exams next week, we are thrilled about these results, but please continue to be safe.

    Enjoy Memorial Day weekend, get some rest, spend time outside, and find time to be with friends and family.

  • May 18, 2022- May 18 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,
     
    This week, we have experienced an increase in Covid cases in our community. While there were no new cases in our weekly testing on Monday, 11 members of our community informed us they tested positive over the weekend. The majority of our cases are seniors, who are off campus, symptoms have been relatively mild, and everyone has taken the necessary precautions to quarantine appropriately.
     
    Our goal is to ensure all of our students stay healthy through the end of the year. We don't want students worrying about incompletes or having to take finals after our exam period, and we especially don't want anyone missing graduation activities or other fun year-end celebrations.
     
    Please continue to be safe and careful. We remain grateful for your support of the health and well-being of Priory. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.
     
    Thanks,

  • May 11, 2022- May 11 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,
     
    Our Juniors and Seniors enjoyed a fantastic prom last week, the Middle School Play was a success over the weekend, and AP exams continue this week. We are blessed by the number of opportunities our students have in and out of the classroom, and we want to continue to allow them to fully participate in all the offerings to learn and grow.

    Our testing this week revealed 2 new positive cases. Thank you for your continued support of the health, safety, and well-being of Priory; we are very grateful to partner with you!
     
    Thanks,

    Dear Parents,

    We are thrilled to share that our weekly testing on Monday revealed only 1 new positive case. With AP exams, the Middle School play, senior games, and Prom this week, please continue to be healthy and well because there are so many good things happening at Priory.

    Thank you for your continued support of the health, safety, and well-being of Priory; we are very grateful to partner with you!

  • April 27, 2022- April 27 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    As we have done each week, this is an update on our Covid testing results. Over the break, five members of our community tested positive (and followed the protocols by not coming on campus until their quarantine was complete), and on Monday, two members were positive in our testing. With cases on the rise across the country, we are thrilled with such low numbers, which is a testament to you and your decisions to stay safe. 

    With so many important and celebratory events over the next six weeks, we will continue to test each week to minimize any potential spread and help keep each other safe. Covid testing continues to be strongly recommended whenever someone is experiencing symptoms or concerned about possible exposure. We do not want our students to miss our special year-end traditions due to unnecessary exposure to this virus.

    We are fortunate that our community is highly vaccinated, focused on safety and healthy decisions, and committed to being on-campus and in-person together, so I am hopeful!

    Thank you for your ongoing efforts to support health, safety, and well-being at Priory; we are very grateful to partner with you!
     
    Thanks,

  • April 13, 2022- April 13 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    As we move closer to our Easter break, I am grateful for the health and safety of our community. Many eligible faculty and staff received their 4th booster last week, and we remain optimistic that our numbers will stay low. Please continue to be safe over the extended break; we plan to test when we return on Monday, April 25.
     
    After Covid testing this week, we had no positive tests!
     
    Please continue to take care of yourself, and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out.  
    Thanks,

  • April 6, 2022- April 6 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    Last Friday, we gathered to celebrate the arts at our magnificent Spring Concert. The display of instrumental and vocal excellence was outstanding and demonstrated the true diversity of talent in our students. We have not enjoyed that concert in person for two years, so it was a delight to come together and celebrate the best of Priory. On Sunday night, Priory Alum, Taylor Eigsti ‘02, who honed his skills as a pianist during his time on Portola Road, earned a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album. After three nominations, this was his first win, and we are very proud of him! It is a joy to see our alums develop and share their gifts in meaningful ways.
     
    I am grateful we can gather for events like the Spring Concert to celebrate our students while remaining a safe community. After Covid testing on Monday, we had one positive test this week! Please continue to take care of yourself, and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out.  
    Thanks,

  • March 30, 2022- March 30 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    Yesterday was a special day as it marked the return of a Priory tradition: the dodgeball tournament. After a three year hiatus, 18 teams competed at a very high level with the Middle School coming out on top. It was an intense tournament but in the end, our Middle Schoolers proved to be the best dodgers on Portola Road! It was also special as our entire community was together and Gambetta gym was filled with joy!

    While we are enjoying more moments like the dodgeball tournament this semester, it is also important to remember that we need to be thoughtful as engage more closely with each other. Priory remains a very safe community: 99.5% of our community vaccinated, we have the highest quality ventilation and filtration systems in our buildings, and we enjoy the best outdoor learning space on the Peninsula.

    After Covid testing on Monday, we are very happy to report that we had no positive tests this week! Please continue to stay healthy and well, and if you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out.  
     
    Thanks,

  • March 23, 2022- March 23 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    Our third quarter wrapped up last week, and it is hard to believe we are getting to the home stretch of the academic year!

    After Covid testing on Monday, we are very happy to report that we had no positive tests this week! As I mentioned last week, we plan to continue weekly testing until Easter break, and we will reassess if we should continue testing over the break.

    Please continue to stay healthy and well, and enjoy the great weather!
     
    If you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out.  
     
    Thanks,

  • March 17, 2022- March 17 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    After Covid testing on Monday, our numbers remain extraordinarily low with one positive case this week. We plan to continue weekly testing until Easter break, and we will reassess if we should continue testing over the break.

    The new “masks optional” policy is going well. While many students continue to wear masks inside the classroom, we are seeing more unmasking outside and in the dining hall. Seeing faces and smiles is a welcome change for us. We understand that there is a wide range of feelings about masking; we will support and honor your family’s decision. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.  


    Thanks,

    Head of School
  • March 10, 2022- March 10 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    As we move closer to a shift in our masking policy, all our Covid tests were negative this week; no cases!

    Starting on Monday, March 14, masks will be optional at Priory. We will continue leveraging mitigation strategies like encouraging people to stay home when sick and weekly testing for the next several weeks to keep Priory safe and healthy.
     
    We are fully supportive of parents who wish for their child/children to continue masking while on campus, as well as faculty, staff, and visitors who choose the same. 
     
    Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.


    Thanks,

  • March 8, 2022- New Mask Policy

    Dear Parents,
     
    The grace with which our community has safely navigated these past several months has been amazing to witness. The collective patience, flexibility, and collaborative spirit have been a true blessing.
     
    Last week, San Mateo County confirmed their local guidelines aligned with the State and CDC on masks being "strongly recommended" versus "required" in schools. On Monday, March 14, masks will be optional at Priory. We will also continue leveraging other mitigation strategies (staying home when sick and weekly testing for the next several weeks) to keep Priory safe and healthy.
     
    As we prepare for a mask-optional environment, we remain focused on our mission, values, and giving our students the best opportunities to learn in and out of the classroom.
     
    Please begin conversations at home concerning mask-wearing. Whether or not a student wears a mask is a family decision. We are fully supportive of parents who wish for their child/children to continue masking while on campus, as well as faculty, staff, and visitors who choose the same. 
     
    The past two years have been an exhausting time of constant risk assessment, continuous weighing of expectations against reality, and the constant need to question just about everything – all while still trying to keep alive some spark of hope and goodwill toward others. I am grateful for the fantastic work of our faculty and staff these 24 months, as they have responded to a very complicated climate with grace and generosity. I am also grateful for all your support; the strength of our community is clear, and I am very excited about this next chapter.
     
    Ora et Labora,

  • February 17, 2022- February 17 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    This week’s testing results are in, and we had over a 99% negativity rate with only 1 new positive case. Thank you for your commitment to safety; it is paying off!
     
    Yesterday, our state’s indoor mask mandate expired. In San Mateo County, fully vaccinated individuals are no longer required to wear masks in public, indoor spaces; but masks are still required in schools. While masks are optional in outside settings at Priory, we must continue to follow the guidelines for schools. The state plans to reassess the school mask mandate on February 28.
     
    Please enjoy a well-deserved break next week, and please continue to be safe!

    Thanks,

  • February 9, 2022- February 9 Testing Updates

    Dear Parents,

    This week’s testing results are in, and we had a 99% negativity rate with only 2 new positive cases. Because of our consistently low case rates over the past several weeks, we will move to mask optional outdoors starting on Monday, February 14. Masks (N95, KN95, or double masks) will continue to be required in our classrooms and other inside spaces. We will follow the county guidelines for schools (masks are still required indoors by the state) but are hopeful those protocols will change in the coming weeks.

    Please continue to take care of yourselves, and if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out.

    Thanks,

  • February 3, 2022- Testing Results for the Week of January 31

    Dear Parents,

    We continue testing our community each week, and this week we had over a 97% negativity rate with 10 new positive cases. While this is a slight increase from last week, we remain optimistic with our results.

    We will begin to open up more things (the Panther and Cub Shacks next week) and we look forward to opportunities for more regular interactions as a community. 

    Please continue to take care of yourselves, and if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out.

  • January 26, 2022- Testing Results for the Week of January 24

    Dear Parents,

    We continue to be impressed with the response from our students and the support from you as we work through this variant. This week, 462 people were tested, and there were 6 new positive cases; again, over 98% of our community tested negative.

    I remain very grateful to our faculty and staff, who continue to teach and care for our students with such passion and enthusiasm. I especially want to thank our Wellness counselors, Ms. Hui and Ms. Franco, and our Benedictine Scholars Coordinator, Ms. Muñoz, who support our students with generosity, compassion, and love. Their expertise, hard work, and ability to meet the needs of our students are outstanding, and Priory is a stronger community because of their gifts. 

    Please continue to take care of yourselves, and if you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to reach out.

    Thanks,

  • January 20, 2022- Weekly Test Results

    Dear Parents,
     
    As we have done the last few weeks, I want to update you on our weekly testing results. I continue to be impressed with our students as they adapt to life with this latest variant. On Tuesday, 471 people were tested with 8 positive cases. Over 98% of our community tested negative, and we remain grateful that our safety precautions and protocols are working.
     
    We are also grateful that students are staying home when they have symptoms or do not feel well. We are moving in the right direction, and we look forward to doing more and more things together safely.
     
    Please continue to take care of yourselves, and do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

  • January 12, 2022- January 12 Update

    Dear Parents,
     
    Many thanks for your support this week as we returned to campus. It has been a joy to see your child/ren the past few days, and the response to our additional safety protocols has been excellent. We have all been impressed with their positivity and flexibility, from testing on Monday to masking outdoors ​and​ eating lunch outside.
     
    We are grateful to partner with Basis and were thrilled with such a quick turnaround time for our results. 475 tests were conducted this week with 15 new positive cases. Consistent with last week, approximately 96% of our community tested negative, and we are thankful our safety precautions and protocols are helping to mitigate this surge.
     
    Please know we must continue to be vigilant with testing and masking. If your child has any symptoms or does not feel well, please keep them home. We are moving in the right direction, but the next few weeks are critical for all of us. Also, please get a booster shot - it makes a big difference. We are thrilled to host the booster clinic on Friday, and 125 people have signed up to receive their third dose!
     
    I continue to be most grateful for the fantastic work our faculty, staff, and administration are doing to ensure the safety of our students. Their hard work, generosity, and love for our community are inspiring!
     
    Please continue to take care of yourselves - mentally and physically, and do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
    Thanks,

  • January 7, 2022- Return to In-Person Learning

    Dear Parents,
     
    I hope the start of the second semester has been smooth…all things considered! The pivot to distance learning felt prudent considering vacation and the Omicron variant. We are grateful for your flexibility in making this change and appreciate the challenges and impact of having your child/ren learn from home.
     
    After receiving our Covid test results and taking extra precautions (listed below), we are ready to resume in-person learning starting on Monday, January 10. Approximately 96% of our community tested negative this week; 21 positive cases in 480 tests. In addition, San Mateo County released new guidelines for isolation, and any person who tests positive for Covid may return to school after five days if they are asymptomatic or their symptoms have resolved, AND they have received a negative antigen test.
     
    To ensure we keep our community safe, we are implementing the following additional safety protocols:
    • Community-wide weekly PCR testing each Monday
    • Double Masked or N95 Mask are required - each student will receive a mask on Monday
    • Masking indoors and outdoors at all times except eating and drinking
    • Lunch will be outside in designated areas by grade level
    • All non-instructional meetings will be conducted over Zoom
    • All non-essential gatherings will be postponed
    • Booster Clinic on campus on Thursday, January 13 for anyone over 12 years old, who is 5 months (12-16) or 6 months (17 and up) beyond their second shot; if you are interested in scheduling an appointment please complete this form. 
    We will continue to provide more detailed information as we move forward with implementation.
     
    The Owls have been re-installed in our classrooms and are ready for students who must Zoom due to Covid-related issues. Please contact Ms. Cortez (Upper School students) or Ms. Ambler (Middle School students) if you need to access classes online.
     
    Our strength is our community, and I am very grateful to be part of Priory during times like this when we must come together to support each other. I am also thankful to Ms. Cortez and Ms. Ambler for their leadership, our faculty and staff for their flexibility and generosity, and our Technology Department, Kitchen Staff, and Facilities Team to pivot quickly to best serve our students. Priory Strong is real!
     
    Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
     
    Always we begin again,

  • December 23, 2021- Omicron and First Week Back Plans

    Dear Priory Families,
     
    I hope the first few days of vacation have been restful and restorative. A change of pace is essential and much needed after our first semester. While Priory has been fortunate to remain healthy this semester, our country is experiencing a dramatic rise in COVID-19 cases due to the Omicron variant. Several universities and secondary schools saw surges on their campuses this month, and even with the signs that this variant may lead to milder cases of COVID-19, its transmissibility remains a concern.
     
    In starting the second semester, we want to minimize disruptions to our students' learning and provide as much predictability as possible for our students, faculty, and families. The current reality of Omicron poses several logistical challenges for the start of in-person classes, as it is not possible to test our entire community and receive results before our start on Monday, January 3.
     
    To support academic continuity, to provide as much consistency as possible, and based on what we have seen the past week, this is our plan for the week of January 3:
    • Classes will be canceled on Monday, January 3. All students and faculty will test on campus, through Basis, on that day. Kate Johansen will communicate the details of testing but it will be scheduled between 10:30 AM and 3:00 PM.
    • Classes will be online for the rest of the week, Tuesday, January 4 – Friday, January 7; we will follow a "C week" schedule.
    • Students are strongly encouraged to obtain a COVID-19 vaccine booster, if eligible, as soon as possible. 
    We anticipate this period of online instruction will allow students and faculty to be safe and healthy, minimize unnecessary exposure to this highly contagious variant, and avoid worry and apprehension as we come back together on January 10.
     
    In planning for these adjustments, please keep in mind:
    • If you are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home and get tested.
    • For students participating in sports, our coaches or Mark Stogner, our Athletic Director, will communicate details about practices or games.
    • Kelly O'Neil, our Retreat Director, will be in touch about the retreat on January 6 for the Class of 2025. Our current plan is for the retreat to proceed as scheduled.
    • Middle school athletics will begin on January 10 as previously scheduled. 
    I am grateful to our faculty for their flexibility in making this adjustment. Our teachers have become well acquainted with online instruction throughout the pandemic, and we hope this short period will make our entire community safe. Still, this will be an adjustment, and I appreciate your generosity and support during this time.
     
    We will continue to monitor the course of the pandemic and the guidance provided by public health authorities. I hope you have an enjoyable break, with the assurance that we will return in the second semester in a way that supports our students and our wider community.
     
    Always we begin again,

  • November 30, 2021- Positive Covid Test

    Dear Priory,
     
    This afternoon, we discovered a member of our community tested positive for COVID-19 yesterday as part of our regular testing on campus. This person is fully vaccinated and is experiencing no symptoms. The student is currently at home and will isolate for the next 10 days.
     
    This information may cause concern or raise questions. Please know we are balancing privacy and the safety of our community, so we cannot share specific or detailed information. Also, please refrain from speculation as it does not serve our community well. The students and teachers that came into close contact with this individual have been notified. If you were not notified, you or your student were not in close contact with this person this week.
     
    No immediate action is needed on your part, but please continue to wear an appropriate face covering and ensure your child is using the Trace app. I’m grateful to our community for following our safety measures, including masking and regular testing. Even with 100% of our faculty and staff vaccinated and over 95% of our eligible students vaccinated, we need to stay vigilant as the virus remains part of our reality.
     
    Please reach out if you have any questions.

  • August 26, 2021- Covid Testing

    Dear Parents,

    As we welcome our students, faculty, and staff back to campus this week, we are taking steps to protect everyone’s health and safety. Please join us in minimizing the prevalence and reducing the spread of COVID-19 at Priory and in our wider community. We are grateful that 100% of our faculty and staff are vaccinated, and 96% of our eligible students are vaccinated; however, we recognized the severity of the Delta variant and see the need to remain vigilant.
     
    With that, we will resume our testing program as an additional measure of safety. Testing will be done on campus through Basis Diagnostics. All unvaccinated students and all students living in our dorms will be tested each week. All vaccinated students, faculty, and staff will be tested every other week. We will continue to communicate results with you, but please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
     
    Ms. Kate Johansen will share the details of our plan in the next few days.
     
    Thank you for all you have done over the past year to work around all the challenges that have come our way. During this time, I have enjoyed the opportunity to get to know many of you over Zoom and in person, and these experiences have reinforced the care and commitment to one another that is at the heart of our community. This strength is part of what makes Priory distinct and special. I look forward to a year of learning, discovery, and community, and I can’t wait to see you soon.
     
    Thanks,

  • August 5, 2021- Covid Protocol Update

    Dear Priory,

    We are looking forward to welcoming our students back to campus in just a few weeks! Our guiding principle is that all students will have access to safe and full in-person instruction. 

    Thank you for responding to our request for information about vaccines. We have responses for 250 students, and 98% of eligible students are vaccinated. We need to collect information for all our students; please take 30 seconds and complete this form. We mandated the vaccine for our faculty and staff, and 100% are in compliance!

    The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released its framework for schools on July 30. As we prepare for the start of the school year, we are writing to share a few highlights of the CDPH safety measures that will apply at Priory to keep our community safe. Please know these practices and protocols continue to change as the virus continues to mutate.
     
    Adhering to this principle, we will follow these measures:
    Masks
    • Masks are required indoors when individuals are sharing indoor spaces and optional outdoors.
    • Individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to wear a mask at all times except during meals.
     
    Distancing 
    • Physical distancing is not required if other mitigation strategies, like wearing a mask, are met; however, physical distancing is encouraged where possible.
    • We will maximize physical distancing while eating, especially indoors. We will eat outdoors when possible.
     
    Hygiene and Cleaning 
    • We will continue to promote handwashing and have hand sanitizer available in classrooms and on campus.
    • We will continue daily cleaning of all facilities and disinfecting any space that has had a sick person or someone who tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 24 hours. (CDC guidance)
     
    Ventilation
    • We will continue our ventilation practices of keeping windows and doors open and will change our MERV-13 filters regularly.
     
    Health Screening
    • We will no longer collect and monitor health screenings daily; however, please monitor your children's symptoms on a daily basis.
    • Please keep students home and contact the school immediately if students have COVID-19 symptoms, have been exposed to COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19.

    COVID Testing
    • Priory will offer routine, ongoing screening testing for individuals who are not fully vaccinated.
    • More information on the testing will follow as the school year approaches.

    Vaccines
    • Priory is committed to keeping our campus and our wider community safe while providing access to in-person instruction for all students.
    • Along with CDPH, we encourage COVID-19 vaccination for all who are eligible. Learn more about the vaccine, and schedule an appointment here.
     
    Portola Valley School District and the Town of Portola Valley are hosting a free COVID-19 vaccine clinic at the Portola Valley Town Center (Community Hall Courtyard) on Sunday, August 8 from 1:00 - 4:00 (1st dose) and Sunday, August 29 from 1:00 - 4:00  (2nd dose). Registration is preferred, or call 1-833-422-4255. Another simple option for vaccines is at your local Safeway.

    Please stay healthy, safe, and well!

  • July 27, 2021- Covid-19 School Guidelines and Important Dates

    July 27, 2021


    Dear Priory,
     
    I hope you and your family are enjoying a restful and rejuvenating summer! We are busy preparing for the start of school in August and excited about the year in front of us.
     
    Earlier this month, California published guidance for schools regarding COVID-19 and the 2021-22 school year. As we get closer to the start of school, we will send more information about our practices and policies, but classes will be full-time, in-person, and 5 days a week. We recognize the seriousness of the Delta variant and will take the appropriate precautions to ensure the safety of our community, particularly as many of our 6th grade students are not yet eligible for vaccination.
     
    We strongly recommend that all students eligible for vaccination receive the vaccine before the start of school. With that, please take 30 seconds and complete this form about vaccinations. We will share our vaccination rate as soon as we have the information collated. As research shows, the best defense against this variant and any other variant is to increase the vaccination rate at Priory.
