Bulldogs Online — Learning and Teaching (BOLT)
That statement captures, in a nutshell, the approach our faculty have taken to our enhanced Distance Learning Program, which we've dubbed Bulldogs Online — Learning and Teaching (BOLT), the acronym a reference to the warp speed with which we launched this spring and the compressed schedule we met this summer, as faculty reimagined the program and the school purchased and installed new technology required to meet our own high bar for improvement. We consider our program to be our best effort to propel our young Bulldogs forward in their learning, allowing them to “bolt” ahead and keep pace with their restless curiosity, even when they cannot be in the classroom.

The schedules included here will be observed when an entire grade level or division must shift to a Distance Learning Program for any length of time. However, when classes are following a flexible model, with some students on campus and others using Zoom to connect from home, students at home will adhere to the daily school schedule, allowing them to participate in the class activity as it happens.
