Getting Started — Fall 2021

School begins on September 1, 2021. We are excited to bring our returning students back and welcome new students to the Storm King campus this Fall. This page is designed to share our preparations for the upcoming semester, and to share updates and new information. Please check this page frequently.


These Fall 2021 Opening Guidelines have been prepared by the School’s Coronavirus Task Force and are based on the School’s 2020 Reopening Plan first published in July 2020, the experience gained during the 2020-2021 school year, and the most recent guidance provided by federal, state, and local health authorities.

The CDC and the New York State Education Department (NYSED) most currently recommend a layered approach to mitigation strategies in schools such as wearing masks, COVID-19 screening testing, cohorting, proper ventilation, hygiene, and cleaning to reduce the risk of transmission. These guidelines are based on these most recent strategies and are subject to change.

Questions regarding these guidelines may be directed to the Head of School Mr. Jonathan Lamb, and the School’s Coronavirus Task Force Co-Chairs Mr. Alan Lewis and Mr. Ray Hecht.
