Covid Updates from our Head of School
The mission and vision of Veritas Academy has remained unchanged since the founding of the school and is rooted in partnership. We continue to believe that together we are better, and this is at the forefront of our minds as we navigate this school year's many moving pieces.
Our primary objective for the 2020-2021 school year is to maximize in-person, on-campus instruction for our students, conducted in a manner that is as safe as reasonably and practically possible for both our kids and their teachers. Striking this balance will not be the easiest thing we attempt this year, and yet we believe it is possible as we remain committed to supporting the safety of our community and upholding the mission and values of Veritas Academy that have brought us together.
Week 23 Covid Update
With the series of winter storms this week, Austin/Travis County Public Health has not been able to update its Covid tracking data since last Fri, Feb 12. The next update is expected this weekend.
In the Veritas community, our School Nurse has been trapped out of state with no new cases being reported to her. With this unexpected week-long lockdown, we have a unique opportunity to restart classes completely Covid-free; so please do not send any students─or yourself─to campus next week if symptomatic at all. Let’s have a strong run into Spring Break and beyond!
