Return to School Information | 2021-2022

The Proctor community (all faculty, staff, students, and parents) embraces the shared responsibility necessary to keep our school and local community healthy. Proctor’s goal for the 2021-2022 school year is to create the healthiest school possible by doing our best to create the healthiest environment for our students and employees (and their families) this year. 

Part of the balancing act we must embrace takes into account the tangential impacts of COVID-19 and the policies we choose to enact; the isolation, anxiety, mental health challenges, and impacts on learning that our students (and all adolescents) experienced over the past 18 months are very real. We must acknowledge and work to create policies that not only protect our community from COVID-19, but from other impacts of this pandemic. We need to be "whole" as a community, and in seeking that wholeness, we must do all that we can to keep our community safe within the context of operating a school.

Section 1: Proctor's Community Agreement

Active participation in all elements of Proctor’s policies and procedures are essential to being a part of the on- and off-campus Proctor Academy community this year. In addition to following Proctor’s Return to School Plan, each individual will agree to the following:
  1. I understand taking responsibility for my own health through my actions is paramount to keeping the Proctor community safe. In doing so, I agree to take part in Proctor’s COVID-19 and other health and safety protocols. 
  2. I agree to follow the Visitor Policy when having guests on-campus, including parent visitation, and agree to follow new weekend travel guidelines for boarding students per Proctor’s Student Handbook.
  3. I understand as a boarding student, day student, or faculty/staff member, I must be cautious of social interactions outside of the Proctor community while school is in session and agree to follow Proctor’s return-to-campus protocols when applicable.
* All of these agreements are subject to change based on guidelines from the NH Department of Health and the CDC. Should a community member be unable, or unwilling, to follow this Community Agreement, they will be asked to step away from the Proctor community in order to ensure the health of the greater Proctor community.

    Proctor is monitoring the health of the immediate community and that of the surrounding area and is prepared to implement a series of campus safety levers throughout the year. Should the need to increase the health and safety protocols, we will do so. These levers include ramping up testing, limiting travel off campus, shutting down athletic competitions with other schools, increasing use of mask policy on campus, and implementing many of the strategies we had in place last year that allowed us to successfully navigate the heart of the pandemic.
