#OneBL

Boys’ Latin will continue with distance learning through Friday, April 24, 2020.  Our campus will remain closed until that time, and any further decisions about classes or campus events will be updated based upon local, regional, and national guidance. 
Communications from Headmaster Chris Post
 
Preventative Measures
The most important steps that can be taken by our campus community are to remain focused on prevention.   As a reminder, the following best practices help to avoid the spread of any illness. 
  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds (it’s about the length of time that you would sing ‘Happy Birthday’). When soap and water are not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Do not come to school if you are sick. Students, employees, and parents who are symptomatic of illness are encouraged to remain home until symptoms, including but not limited to coughing, sneezing, runny nose, and fever, subside. 
  • Coughs and sneezes should be covered with a sleeve or tissue (not a hand).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Students should not share drinks or food,
We ask that you notify our school nurse Amy Hale, ahale@boyslatinmd.com, with any questions or concerns, or if anyone in your family becomes ill. 
 
Student Trips
The spring break trip to India with Garrison Forest has been canceled.
The fifth grade trip to Philadelphia has been postponed. 
Lacrosse and Baseball spring break trips have been canceled. 
All FIRST Chesapeake robotics events have been canceled. The District Championship is rescheduled for June.
Travel
We ask that families adhere to local, state, national, and CDC guidelines on travel. Gov. Larry Hogan on Wednesday, March 25 ordered anyone in the state who has recently traveled to the greater New York area to self-quarantine for 14-days to avoid spreading the coronavirus. The CDC is asking anyone who travels to a Level 3 Country to self-quarantine for 14 days upon return.  The US State Department issued a Level 4 “do not travel” advisory, recommending that United States citizens avoid any global travel. 

The School expects families to follow CDC guidelines and state guidelines, including the 14-day self-quarantine. If your family is traveling, we ask that you let us know.  Please email your division head and copy the school nurse (ahale@boyslatinmd.com). 
Events 
Join us on Tuesday, March 10 at 7 PM in the Bauer Student Commons for a Town Hall meeting to discuss the coronavirus and the impact on our community. Headmaster Post will speak on the School's preparedness and allow for plenty of time for questions and answers.  Click here to RSVP.
