COVID-19 Resources for Families


We're here to help.

Holiday Travel

Following state orders, we are strongly advising families and faculty against out of state travel and large gatherings. However, if you must leave the state for essential travel, it is imperative that you follow the advisory (as of Nov. 10) in order to protect our community: Any Marylander who travels to a state with a COVID-19 test positivity rate above 10% or with a case rate over 20 per 100,000 in the past 7 days should get tested and self-quarantine at home until the test result is received. The District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the States of Delaware and West Virginia are exempt from this recommendation.

To read the full communication about this topic, please log in to the Parent Portal.

Fall Semester

Currently our Children's Garden is on campus full time and grades 1-8 are engaged in distance learning with options to come on campus for in-person subject classes according to a hybrid schedule that is being communicated to parents through class teachers. Please take a look at the MOSHPIT document to get familiar with some of the practices and protocols that are guiding our on campus time.

Distance Learning

If you have any questions about your child's curriculum or delivery of materials, please reach out to Academic Director Cecilia Liss or your class teacher.

Any additional questions, comments or concerns can be directed to Pat Whitehead.

School Communications

Please check your email regularly as we are sending out important information directly to you. You can also find all of our recent communications on the home page of your parent portal.
