Last night the Fairhaven School Assembly amended the metric we use for determining if the campus should be open to follow the CDC guideline chart using the state of Maryland’s data. The school's campus will remain closed until both of the top 2 core indicators (cases per 100k and positivity rate) are at or below the  "moderate risk" indicators. The seven-day moving average must remain below the threshold for seven consecutive days before reopening.

Following this new metric, the campus will reopen as a hybrid beginning next Tuesday, February 16. Campus will be open on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 9am-4pm. See 8/14/2020 update for more details.

Beginning April 6, the number of days the campus will be open will increase to four days per week, provided all COVID safety protocols continue to be met.

Fairhaven School will follow Prince George’s County, Maryland and the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Maryland Department of Health regarding school closures about the COVID-19 pandemic. Beginning March 12th the attendance requirement is waived indefinitely for families who want to practice social distancing. Parents must notify the school when students will be absent due to COVID-19 (social distancing, direct contact with an individual with a positive COVID-19 diagnosis, or if students themselves have a positive COVID-19 diagnosis).

5. If you plan to travel or have traveled nationally or internationally, please make sure to review the CDC’s travel advisories and country risk levels frequently (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/index.html). Please contact us if anyone has traveled to or has travel plans involving CDC levels 2 and 3 countries. The CDC recommends a 14-day self-quarantine if anyone is returning from a Level 3 country such as China, Italy, Iran and South Korea. Anyone traveling from a Level 2 country such as Japan should monitor their health and limit interactions with others.
