Through months of creative problem solving, cautious optimism, industry wide collaborations and countless conversations with people from medical and governmental agencies, we are ready to begin registering students for summer programs. While our programs will look different this year, the core elements of who we are and what we believe in are very much intact! We know that kids are ready to get outside with their friends, we know that parents are ready for some relief and we know Telluride Academy is ready to play a role in our extended community’s rejuvenation!
On June 1st we opened up our registration to local families to ensure our program was accessible to families needing to return to work. We then opened up our programming on June 5th to welcome back any family that had registered with us previously in 2020. We are now opening up registration to all new families! Our programming will begin on June 15th and run through mid August. As the summer progresses so too will our program options and capacities. Until further notice we are only able to offer day and single overnight programs as well as teen Friday excursions. We are hopeful that in July and August our multi-overnight “expedition” programming will be allowed to move forward.
As we all find our footing in this new landscape, we ask for your continued patience and understanding as we relaunch an entire summer in such a short time. Getting our extensive staff prepared for this unique summer, redesigning our entire website and registration platform as well as implementing new health procedures in a condensed time frame has been no small feat. We have taken a cautious approach to get to this point and every step taken thus far has been measured and well though out. After registering, each family will receive a short pre-program consultation by a member of our administrative team. These phone calls will ensure that we are answering your questions, addressing your concerns as well as directing you to all of our important health and safety documents while preparing you and your child for a safe and fantastic summer program!
