March 14 – 27 (All School)

Posted on: Mar 13, 2020

What a week it’s been

We know this week has been trying for many of our families. First there was an unexpected start to spring break and then the announcement that we would go to an online model from March 23-April 3.

We simply believed it was in the best interest of our families and the extended community. Please continue checking your emails and hollandhall.org, where you will find links to resources and the latest information.

We know you’ll have a lot of questions. Please know that we want to support you and your family in any way we can during these weeks of remote learning and anytime you need us. Please feel free to reach out to:

Day 1 of remote learning

On Monday, March 23, we will give the community the chance to set up their home lives and care for themselves while preparing for online learning.

The Primary School will have a packet pick-up line from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. for some grades. Please check your child’s PowerSchool Learning page to see if you need to pick up a packet. If you can’t make it at that time, please contact Pam Herman, 918-879-4725.

Middle and Upper School students call or email their branch if they need to pick up power cords, books, instruments or anything else they may need to work from home.


College visits over spring break

If you are planning to visit college campuses over spring break or after, we strongly advise you to check with the college campus on a daily basis, watch your email communication from colleges closely, and check college websites due to ongoing campus closures as a result of COVID-19 precautions. A number of colleges are no longer accepting off-campus visitors and several campuses have canceled all spring visit programs.

Please reach out if you have any questions.

Director of College Counseling
