COVID-19 Precautions/Community Responsibility

Much detailed attention has been paid by the Acorn Hill community to modifying programs so that COVID-related guidelines and concerns can be effectively addressed. We are looking for candidates who understand that our safety as a community is dependent on each and every one of us as individuals. Because of COVID-19 all classes are based outdoors, and each class has access to an indoor classroom as well.

We will undertake the work necessary to prepare our children and ourselves for the challenges and joys of life in a diverse society.
