From the Head of School
July 1, 2020
To our Breck families,
Thank you for returning to this webpage. As promised, we continue to update this site in order to share the most up-to-date information regarding all aspects of our planned return for the fall 2020. While some headings have remained the same, content has been updated, and we invite you to read through this site for detailed information about our plans and procedures for the fall as they stand today, July 1, 2020.
Since March, we have promised to remain flexible and to move nimbly as more information becomes available. The plans and procedures outlined below were developed by an incredibly committed and hardworking group of faculty and staff with guidance from a number of credible sources and our consulting epidemiologist.
As our faculty and staff continue our work throughout this summer, one thing has become glaringly obvious. We must work together, families with school — school with families, to improve our culture and mitigate our COVID-19 risks. In my most recent communication, I recognized our school’s responsibility for the broken promise of equality and justice within our walls. We need your partnership to improve our culture and community.
Similarly, we recognize that we must work together to mitigate our COVID-19 risks. Anyone who comes to our campus brings with them the risks they have taken outside our school. We urge our families to strictly enforce practices with their children and adolescents that will make it possible for us to return to school and activities this fall.
Finally, I want to thank the many people who continue to contribute countless hours to understanding current science around COVID-19 and apply it to our beloved Breck experience. We are doing everything we can to mitigate risk, protect our community, and communicate our plans for the fall.
With Mustang Pride,
Natalia Rico Hernández, Ed.D.
Head of School
