Remote Learning at Holy Trinity (2020-2021)

Remote Learning is an option for families who do not feel comfortable sending their children back to campus for extended periods of time or for children who must be off campus due to self-isolation requirements. In alignment with best practices, HTEA is committed to providing remote learners with a high level of support, direct instruction, and interaction. As with any educational endeavor, student success is based on establishing and maintaining a strong student-teacher relationship. Adhering to the HTEA curriculum and keeping pace with in-person instruction will allow all learners to maintain the curricular momentum, thus facilitating a seamless transition between in-person and remote learning.  

Please review the Lower School and Upper School Remote Learning documents in this portal. If you would like to have your student engage in remote learning, please contact your division head.  

After the school year begins, on-campus students may transition from in-person learning to remote learning for COVID-related reasons, such as a positive COVID-19 test result or a circumstance that requires a quarantine period. 

If at any time you wish to transition your child(ren) from remote learning to in-person learning, we ask that you contact your child(ren)'s Division Head and provide advance notice of at least three school days prior to returning to campus.
