How are we keeping students safe on campus for the 2020-21 school year?

We have employed a methodology, based on expert advice and in line with government guidelines, called 'Stop, Protect, React'. This is a series of protective measures that are aimed at keeping our students and staff safe while allowing us to focus primarily on creating the best possible learning experiences for our students. This methodology works only with the collaboration of all of our community members under our core value of 'working together, because without us all we're nothing'.  Download a full statement about our response to COVID-19 or scroll down to read more.

Students in the hybrid classroom

What do our parents say?

"In my opinion, ASW has developed an excellent prevention system that makes children, teachers and parents feel safe in these difficult times. As parents, we are grateful to the school board and to the principals for having procedures in place, which are being followed, that protect us against coronavirus as much as possible. The real risks are never underestimated in this school." 

"Considering that the pandemic is not over yet and the situation is still very uncertain almost everywhere, personally as a parent, I was really very scared to let my girls come back to school after the lockdown. 

Fortunately ASW is managing the situation in the best way, taking all necessary measures to keep our community safe. They tested all the students and staff before starting the school year and they are continuing to test them at least once per week. This approach for me is the best to guarantee the safety of our students and to prevent the spread of COVID-19 inside the school. I'm very thankful to ASW for these measures." 

"We believe that the preventative nature of ASW's COVID-19 policy has been invaluable. It is also clear that ASW responded in a tailored manner to positive test results to date and has been adjusting the protocols as circumstances warrant.

Being able to attend ASW in person has been of particular importance for our daughter who is new to ASW. We hope that the protocols that are in place will allow for live classes to continue even if COVID cases increase in the future.

ASW has been a dream-come-true for our daughter who is a dual US-Poland citizen and attended a Polish elementary school - she absolutely loves it."
