Dorm News: November 20, 2020
Boarding Students On th Golden Gate Bridge

Here in the dorms, we continue to explore ways to enjoy both our beautiful campus and the surrounding area. Resident Faculty Chad Sigler, working with Director of Sustainability Shelley Flint, created our own boarding garden plot where students can plant, cultivate, and harvest vegetables. After sending out a survey to our boarding students for input, Chad suggested vegetables that will grow in a California winter. Students planted seeds that are already beginning to sprout! Chad and the students will create a meal from the finished product. We can't wait to see the garden grow and taste the results.

Last weekend we took advantage of a break in the rain to walk the 1.7 miles across the Golden Gate Bridge! Sophomore Zuzu Zamorano captured the sentiments of the day: "Walking across the bridge was a great way to spend my Sunday. The weather was great and clear. As we walked across we admired the beautiful Bay Area and we saw dolphins below us. The walk was a really nice break from schoolwork and I enjoyed it very much." It was a clear, beautiful day and the students had a great time together enjoying the 360-degree views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay, San Francisco, and Marin County.

NOTE: Now that we have returned to in-person learning, our boarding students are currently practicing a modified hybrid of a "bubble" or "pod" with their floors, while maintaining masks and distance from those living on other floors in common spaces and outdoors. Students and Resident Faculty are working together to keep our Boarding and broader school community as safe as possible. While the rules and procedures are too extensive to list here, please know that students appearing in photos are safely interacting with their peers according to the updated guidelines, based on current Marin Public Health protocols. All students are tested bi-weekly and all Resident Faculty and their on-campus families follow additional safety measures and are tested monthly.
