The Lycée Hybrid Model is guided by three principles:
Physical Health and Safety
The Lycée has followed the guidelines of New York State and the Centers for Disease control in all planning. A panel of experts in medicine and public health have provided essential guidance as our health and safety plan was created.
All students, faculty and staff wear face masks on site when with others, follow strict physical distancing measures, and must wash or sanitize hands frequently. Significant infrastructure enhancements have been implemented, including upgrades to our cooling system to provide for circulation of outside air into the building, advanced filtration units in each classroom, the addition of touchless fixtures, hand sanitizer units, and health and safety, and building ciruclation signage throughout the building. The Lycée has rigorous protocols for the cleaning and disinfection of all spaces between use.
Pedagogy, and Social and Emotional Development
We believe that, whenever possible, in-person time with teachers each week is essential to support student learning and thriving. The balance of in-person learning and online learning, in both live and pre-recorded sessions, is based on the level of autonomy and development of students at each grade level.
Emotional Health and Safety
Student well-being, joy and care are central to the Lycée's mission and will remain a guiding focus for the entire Lycée team. The Lycée's Specialized Support Team, including the school's psychologist and middle school counselor, along with our teachers and advisors, will be working in lockstep to support students, and parents, throughout the school year.
