Given these unprecedented times created by COVID-19, it is important to keep our priorities in the forefront. At Gillispie, we recognize that our program must honor our mission in creating a learning environment that serves as a “springboard for children’s love of learning, creativity, and readiness for the future.” We believe in a participatory, hands-on, active approach. For a safe re-opening of our campus in September 2020, we took great care in designing a setting that is physically and emotionally healthy for students, teachers, and staff. However, we must commit to changing course as circumstances change to meet the challenges that lie ahead. Communication with our families in these areas is critical to sustaining our sense of community.

Gillispie’s COVID-19 Task Force is comprised of our six administrators. This group meets virtually on a daily basis and consults with Gillispie’s Communications Lead, School Nurse, Board of Trustees, and legal and medical specialists as needed. Each administrator has his/her own responsibilities in making sure we are abreast of new information from agencies, professional associations, and educational sources to formulate and execute next steps. In addition, our Director of Facilities is working in coordination with the School’s professional cleaning team to ensure that we have a clean and well-maintained campus for our return.
