A note from Tiffany Clark, Head of School

Last week marked the end of our third school year here at Collage Day School. Our school has grown in size with the additions of students and staff over the three years. Through it all, we have remained a family united to overcome the obstacles we face including recent health concerns in the environment.

Collage Day School is preparing for a wonderful summer program in addition to opening the school for all students beginning on August 10th. Collage will be adhering to safety and health protocols to ensure the safety and well being of our students. Our leadership team has worked seamlessly together to provide plans for all situations that may arise. This includes monitoring travel plans for our students and staff, capping class sizes, providing extra staff to ensure classes are not combining during our busiest times of the day, and additional staff to continually clean the school campus through out the day. In addition, we have policies in place should a student, staff member, or family member contract COVID-19.

We continually strive to see all situations through the lens of parents, staff, and students. Our leadership team will continually meet weekly during the summer to monitor all developments and act accordingly. We will continue to communicate with all staff and parents to maintain transparency as we address developments. In addition, we will formulate a clear plan outlining our safety parameters as we “Return to School” in August. 

We wish you a safe and healthy summer. 
Please reach out to us should a situation arise where you need support. Together, we will continually rise above this and embrace every opportunity to make our family at Collage Day School stronger.
