Frequently Asked Questions

Is Oldfields Open for in-person learning for the 2021-2022 Academic Year?

Yes. Oldfields School welcomes boarding and day students to campus on August 28, 2021. The COVID-19 Task Force  has outlined procedures and protocols for Health and Safety, Community/Residential Life, and Academics while following CDC guidelines and recommendations from national and local health departments. This information is outlined below. 

We are excited to welcome our students back and offer a robust academic and student life experience. While some of our daily routines will be different for the start of the school year, our goal is for many aspects of community life to feel as similar to pre-pandemic school years as possible. 

As national rates of COVID-19 and the Delta variant rise, we continue to closely monitor public health guidance, as well as consult with medical experts and counterparts from peer schools. We are prepared to move through various scenarios of campus protocol based on the virus’ spread, new variants, and in accordance with local, state, and federal mandates.
