2021-2022 Back to School Plan

A message to Prospective Parents:

Throughout the COVID19 pandemic, our Schechter community has demonstrated tremendous strength, resilience, and support for one another. As we prepared for the 2021-2022 school year, we are grateful for the continued research, time, and devotion of our educational and administrative leaders, as well as our Board and volunteers.

The overarching principles guiding our school's reopening include the physical health and safety of our community, the emotional well-being of students, faculty and staff, and maintaining the exemplary educational experience that families have come to expect from Schechter. Our plan incorporates the latest science and data, guidelines, and best practices in education currently available, and has been unanimously approved by the SSDS Board of Directors. We are grateful for the trust Schechter parents place in our school as we continue to navigate this new reality together as partners to educate our students.

Written Information about COVID Protocols

In three words, Schechter is a community, learning, and Judaism. Schechter is the type of community that promotes friendship, leadership, learning, fun, and most of all the love of being Jewish. Each day when I walk into school, I am greeted. Whether it's a security guard, a parent, a teacher, and sometimes even a student, I know that I'm starting my day in a community way.
