Distance Learning at TCS

The Children’s School is committed to providing our students intellectual challenge in an environment that is safe and allows them to thrive. In keeping with this commitment, we have transitioned to distance learning. At this time, all on-campus activities are cancelled.

Our distance-learning program includes digital discussions, teacher-generated videos, opportunities for individual support from teachers, and projects that can be completed at home. The methods vary depending on the age of students.

In these difficult times, we have been working hard to provide consistency for all of our students. The administrative team has been delighted to see the TCS students engaged in the same lively discussions online that we are used to experiencing in person. The faculty and staff are prepared to offer our TCS experience virtually for as long as we need to- but of course, we are eager to see all of our students back at school again, as soon as possible.

TCS is able to thrive during adverse times precisely because we have built strong and lasting bonds within the community. We take joy in being together, and pride in sustaining relationships over the long haul. It is our sincere hope that you stay healthy and find beauty in being with those you love.

Looking Ahead

The Children’s School has been busy planning for the 2020-2021 school year. While we still don’t have all the rules of the game, there is every reason to believe that TCS will be in a very good position to continue giving our students as normal a school experience as possible when we are allowed to reopen. We are planning for an in-person, full-day, five-day Prekindergarten – 8th grade program, and an in-person, regular schedule for our Toddler and Preschool programs in the fall.  We will also operate a virtual program for children who remain at home. Additionally, TCS has moved the start date of school to Monday, August 31st, adding six days of instruction to the 20-21 school year.
