Peabody Preparatory Fall Return to Campus Summary:
The Peabody Preparatory is looking forward to welcoming back our student to campus in-person and, to ensure the safety of all our student populations, both Preparatory and Conservatory, will be following robust health and safety protocols as detailed below.
The Preparatory is developing its own internal vaccine management process for our student population. To fully develop this system and the processes behind it, we will require some additional time before bringing students back to campus. Therefore, the fall semester will begin as follows:
*Students in Peabody Children’s Chorus will receive separate instructions from the PCC team regarding your return to campus plan.
Given the rapid spread of the Delta variant and the fact that our under-12 student population remains ineligible to be vaccinated, the Preparatory will allow students to remain online with the following restrictions:
JHU Affiliate Preparatory Faculty, Staff, Parents, and Students will follow the return to campus guidelines set forth by JHU for campus access including all testing, contact tracing, and containment protocols along with the use of the ProDensity App.
Non-JHU Affiliate Parents/Guardians/Students will use the Auxs Safety App S1 as their online health-check portal.
Parents are required to conduct the online health-check via the Auxs Safety App S1 for each individual student on the day they intend to physically be on campus. The app will ask the following questions:
If the response to all questions is negative, an electronic green go pass will be issued via the app and also sent to account emails permitting access the campus for the day the questionnaire is completed. Each student coming to campus must show their individual green go pass to Preparatory staff at the entrance to the Towson Campus to be permitted onsite.
If the response to any of the questions is affirmative, students will not be permitted to participate in on-campus activities and will receive an electronic red stop pass indicating that they are not permitted on campus. Students who have not verified their vaccine status will not be able to access the green go pass to receive access to campus.
Students are only permitted on campus with a green go pass issued by the Auxs Safety App S1 or, if they are Johns Hopkins affiliates, by the ProDensity app.
In addition to completing the online health-check, the following process will be utilized for bringing students to campus:
The Quick Reference Guide to the Auxs Safety App includes instructions for:
Faculty/Staff Testing and Positive Test Results: Faculty and Staff will follow all JHU testing, reporting, quarantining, and return to work protocols regarding positive test results.
Student Positive Test Result: Johns Hopkins will not be able to offer COVID testing to Preparatory Students. All students who test positive during the course of the semester should be reported to the local Department of Health for contact tracing and Parents/Guardians should inform the Preparatory of potential exposure.
For instrument-specific guidance around studio lessons and ensemble classes, please read the Preparatory’s detailed return-to-campus guidance for applied instruction at peabody.jhu.edu/PrepCampusGuidance. These protocols have been developed with input from the university’s leading health experts to ensure the safety of our community.
