We want to know how you’re feeling after a year of navigating this exceptional high school year. We’d be glad to hear your story, and to share it with the community. We will be filming short interviews (15 min each) on Monday afternoon, April 5. We hope you’ll consider joining us, and we’ll have food & friends waiting to greet you. The filming location is the outdoor space at Swan School. We’re following Covid protocol for filmmaking, which means you’ll need a mask when you’re not on camera, or snacking on tasty treats. On camera “talent” (that’s you!) can remove the mask during interviews. Please see the attached link for sign up. Questions? Please email or

Health and Safety Reminders!

Welcome students.  We are happy that you are back on campus with us.  As we move forward with our second semester cohorts, it is so important that we work together in following the health and safety guidelines, to keep ourselves and each other safe on campus.  

1. Wear your mask covering the nose and mouth at all times unless you are eating, or getting water.

2. No eating or drinking in the classroom.

3. No eating lunch in the hallways.  Lunch is only in the designated eating areas (commons, auditorium, outside).

4. Maintain socially distanced (6 feet apart) in the classroom, during breaks, and in movement between classes.

5. Only one student is allowed in the restroom at a time.

6. Follow the directional arrows on the staircases and entrances.

We know it can be a challenge to be diligent with these protocols, but we need to do all we can to protect ourselves, our friends, and our classmates on campus.  Thanks, and know that Ms. Ehrhardt and Mr. Gaffney appreciate your cooperation!

• Mental health support from the School-Based Health Clinic: monthly tips, thoughts, and inspirations: Greetings from the School-Based Health Clinic mental health therapist!  As we all feel a fall chill in the air, the shortening daylight, and the winter holidays approaching, there seems to be a bit of fear stirring in our hearts, about the upcoming months. Reports of increases in COVID cases nationwide certainly don’t help, and it is easy to let worry and dread seep under our skin. Here are two sources that provide some tips to help us all to get through the winter safe and sound:

An article published this October, 2020 in Vox, gives good advice from psychologists, on a simple phrase that can help us cope this winter:  “Shift your focus outward”,  ...which involves “cultivating different states — social connectedness, a clear purpose, inspiration — but all have one thing in common: They get you to focus on something outside yourself”.

This website lists some free helpful apps to help manage anxiety, depression, sleep issues, and more:
