Welcome to Woodward’s Back-To-School Page

Academic Year 2020 - 2021

Dear Woodward Students and Families,

We are excited to be getting back to our academic and community life, even as we navigate through this uniquely challenging time. Woodward will open with a hybrid model of in-school, on campus learning and remote learning from home. Students will attend school in person on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday every week. Wednesday will be a remote, learning from home day.

Orientation Week is scheduled for Wednesday, September 9th through Friday, September 11th. All three days of Orientation Week will be on campus, in school. Middle School students (Grades 6-8) only will start on Wednesday, September 9th at 8:15 AM. Upper School students (Grades 9-12) only will start on Thursday, September 10th at 8:15 AM. There will be no school for Middle School students on Thursday September 10th.

All students will attend school on Friday, September 11th. Woodward's traditional ice cream social will take place at the end of day on Friday, carefully distanced for students and faculty only.

On your Opening Day, Wednesday or Thursday when you arrive, you will be greeted in front of our newly renovated school building, and guided in to report to your grade level Advisory. The first days will include an extensive orientation to maximize the safety and comfort of all through a careful review of the special procedures we will follow while in the school building, as well as regular orientation topics.

You should have received a personalized email with your class schedule. You will find more information about the return to school through the links below.

Ms. Renee has been keeping us all apprised of The School’s work on careful re-entry plans and schedules, and she will continue to communicate and seek feedback regularly throughout the month of August. You will find updates from Ms. Renee under the General tab below. We recognize that we may have to adapt through the fall and winter. Through it all, we will remain focused on continuing to present a rigorous and inspiring academic program that develops the intellect, character and personal potential of every Woodward student.

We look forward to seeing you and to a great year of learning in 2020 - 2021.
