Ursuline has begun the school year with a short period of online learning complemented by a program that brings students to campus weekly for a full slate of activities, including music, technology, athletics, guidance, and wellness. After this first phase of online learning, the school plans to shift to a concurrent (hybrid) model in October and is well-prepared to shift to fully online learning, if necessary, or in-person learning when it is safe to do so. Staff are trained in all models, and will have live streaming technology in each classroom that allows teachers to instruct students on-campus and at home simultaneously.
