Community Life

Updated 7/15/20

A key part of the Solebury School experience is the sense of community we foster outside of the classroom. Learning at Solebury goes beyond the academic day and we are committed to providing a rich, engaged community life for all of our students, whether in-person or remote. This will require that we imagine things differently, starting with engaging our new students earlier. Throughout the summer, we are conducting remote engagement events that allow students to get to know one another, as well as parents. Information on these events, and details on how to participate, are available through email as well as by logging into the Parent Portal. 

During 2020-21 school year, some ways we will nurture our community of students and adults will include:

After-school activities
Arts - visual and performing 
Clubs & affinity groups
Community Service
Grade Level Events
Home and School Association
Peer-led activities for students
School Traditions such as Convocation, May Day, Parents Day
Weekend “Calls with Tom”
and much more

A special note about Athletics

Our goal is to safely operate the fall sports season with training and/or modified practices corresponding with the opening of school; there will not be a traditional preseason for the fall this year.  We are in constant communication with peer schools about whether competitive athletics will take place this fall, and if so, in what form. This decision will ultimately be informed by the most recent state and federal health guidelines. Solebury is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our student-athletes and maintaining flexibility to adapt as circumstances change. We know athletics are important to many students and we thank you for your patience. A decision on winter and spring sports will be determined at a later date.
