We are excited to kick off the 2021-22 school year! We are so happy to start – and complete - the school year fully present on campus. We have been looking forward to running our normal academic schedule, including the majority of the activities in our after-school program.
100% IN-PERSON INSTRUCTION
We have begun in-person instruction, and will not be providing virtual classes. The PR Department of Health has made it clear that schools should be among the last to close, and the first to reopen, during the Covid-19 pandemic. We know that having students learn with their peers is important, both academically and emotionally. We are confident that the protocols we put in place last year, combined with changes based on more recent research and guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Puerto Rico Department of Health, will allow us to safely conduct our classes entirely on campus. Of course, if the situation on the island changes such that the government requires schools to return to hybrid and/or fully remote learning, we know we are prepared for this.
VACCINATIONS REQUIRED FOR EVERYONE AGE 12 AND OLDER
In order to ensure that both of our campuses (Guaynabo & Hato Rey) is as safe as possible, we have been supporting and enforcing the requirement that all faculty, staff, and students (ages 12 and up, hereinafter “eligible students”), must be vaccinated to attend school. If the Covid-19 vaccination is later authorized to be given to students younger than 12, CPS reserves the right to revisit this policy and apply vaccination requirements for those students.
