Welcome to the resource page for current students and families. Throughout the year, you will need access to forms and information. This page should bring most of what you're looking for into one place, for your convenience.
Following summer-long preparations for a safe return to campus and the 2020-21 school year, we are in the home stretch: freshmen and other new students arrive for orientation tomorrow, and their schoolmates join them next Tuesday for the first day of classes.
A. The Academy plans to increase the frequency of cleaning services, especially in high-traffic and high-touch areas, and use highly-efficient electrostatic foggers to disinfect classrooms, equipment, and common areas throughout campus. For a full list of cleaning mitigation measures, please refer to the Campus Reopening Framework Plan, Section 3.
A. In order to take the health screening questionnaire, you will need to use your student's Fryeburg Academy email and password. For incoming freshmen and new students, this information was sent in the summer mailing. If you cannot find this information, please contact IT@fryeburgacademy.org.
A. Yes. As part of an essential mitigation measure, students, faculty, and staff, and all visitors to campus will be required to wear a face mask/covering while on campus. Students will have access to "mask-free zones' located throughout campus as needed. If a student is unable to wear a mask, we recommend they participate in our remote-learning option.
Approved face masks must be at least two-ply, cloth or disposable face masks with head or ear straps. (A good rule-of-thumb is if you hold your mask up to the light and can see through it, it’s not thick enough).
Masks with writing other than the FA logo or masks with valves are NOT allowed, as they house buildup of droplet secretions and pose a risk to others. Neck gaiters, bandanas, or attire other than traditional face masks will also NOT be allowed. Please refrain from touching your mask as much as possible throughout the day.
Fryeburg Academy will provide a cloth mask to any student who needs one. These masks will be available during a student’s first day of school.
A. Yes. Should your student require a laptop, the Academy will loan a Google Chromebook for his/her use for the entire year. Additionally, the Academy has a limited supply of wifi hotspot devices that are available to families who do not have access to the internet.
A. At this time, we are requesting students and their families, faculty, and staff to avoid all non-essential travel other than to areas designated by Maine authorities as exempt, during school breaks and weekends. If you must travel, we request you notify the school nurse (and Residential Office, if a resident student), and follow all protocols the Academy establishes for your return to campus, which may include testing and quarantine.
A. Should the State or county increase the risk-level to "RED" (high risk-level), the Academy would assume a full remote-learning model. At any time, based on current assessment, the Academy may opt to go into a remote-learning model--despite current designated risk levels by local and state health agencies or temporarily close school until further exposure assessment by the school nurse and administration is determined.
A. At this time, we are requiring all international resident students and students who travel by public transportation to be tested and quarantined until the negative test results are returned. We are focusing on students who are coming from other countries and/or parts of the U.S. that may have higher levels of the coronavirus spread.
If a community member requires a COVID-19 test and is positive, the school nurse will initiate contact tracing. If the exposure is potentially high, the Academy may opt to close the school for a few days until the full extent of exposure is determined.
The Academy will send out a broadcast email/text alert to all families and community members of the potential exposure.
Fryeburg Academy is an independent boarding and day school, serving grades 9-12 and postgraduate. We invite you to explore our site and learn how students from around the globe find their place in the world through our exceptional academic, art, and athletic programs.
