Our Covid-19 Response History
On March 16th, 2020, Quarry Hill School ceased operations for the 2019-20 school year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We provided remote supports and learning opportunities for our students as well as regular contact and supports with families. Our last day of the year was celebrated with a physically distanced Rainbow parade in the parking lot at school.
Playgroup was cancelled for the summer, as our drop-in model did not fit the Vermont guidelines for childcare and group gatherings.
Throughout the stay at home orders and the summer, the teaching team was in regular contact to thoughtfully develop plans for the 2020-21 school year that incorporate the utmost safety and confidence.
The board has met behind the scenes to support our fiscal integrity. We successfully participated in the Vermont Childcare Stabilization Program -- procuring tuition dollars from state funding rather than parents. We also applied for and received a Payroll Protection Plan loan from the federal government, which further secured our solvency throughout the pandemic.
