COVID-19: Information for the Trinity Hall Community
SCHOOL OPERATING SCHEDULE
Relationships are an essential part of this community. All students are expected to attend classes online and to participate fully in the educational experience. The daily schedule is sent each week and can be found in the Community Notes.
One Schoolhouse classes will continue as usual through May 1 with no spring break. Students must plan accordingly and communicate with their teacher (and Alyssa Morreale) if they will not have internet access during our spring break so they can complete work ahead of time or request an extension if needed. The third quarter ended on Friday, March 13. Report cards were mailed to students and parents between Wednesday, March 18 and Friday, March 20 (the school receives report cards by March 23).

OFFICE OF COLLEGE COUNSELING
- Naviance has added a feature called “College Events” which provides students with dates and times colleges are offering virtual campus visits, virtual open houses and virtual admissions panel discussions. Instructions were sent to students from the College Counseling Office on how to access College Events.
- Admissions officers from Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Princeton University, University of California, Berkeley, and Vanderbilt University invite you to learn about their institutions, hear advice about the college search and application process, and get your questions answered. If registration is full, please consider registering for another region/date. http://coasttocoasttour.org
- Students who have taken, or plan on taking, the ACT, now have the option of retesting in up to three subject areas and having their scores supercored. In addition, students can choose to take the ACT by computer at test centers that offer that option and receive their scores back within two days. To learn more and view webinar recordings, please visit https://www.act.org/content/act/en/students-and-parents/act-webinars-for-students-and-parents.html
- The June 6 SAT is canceled. The College Board plans to add dates in September. In addition, the test dates on August 29, October 3, November 7 and December have not been cancelled and will be administered. More information and updates can be found at https://pages.collegeboard.org/sat-covid-19-updates.
- Registration for SAT test dates beginning in August will open in May. Students who already registered for a March, April, May or June SAT will receive priority registration (an access code will be sent directly to the student, via email, from the College Board). Please note: the registration for the in-school SAT does not apply for priority registration.
- ACT has rescheduled its April 4 national test date to June 13. All students registered for the April 4 test should have received an email from ACT informing them of the postponement and instructions for free rescheduling to June 13 or a future national test date. If a student did not receive this email, please contact ACT.
- The June 13 ACT is still scheduled as of now. In addition, ACT is launching a test-at-home option in late fall/early winter 2020 as part of a national testing program. For updates, please visit https://www.act.org.

- College Test Prep Resources for Students and Parents
- Many colleges and universities have moved to test-optional for fall 2021 due to testing challenges.
- Please visit https://docs.google.com/document/d/1B_7tGNiliLs-dXYMDKeMto70gZBh_o_bGBwVa-IxzdQ/edit?ts=5e86138c. Make sure to check this document frequently as updates will be posted.
- You can also visit Fair Test to see an updated list of colleges moving test-optional (see “spring 2020” list).
- All National College Fairs (NACAC) for the spring have been canceled. Please visit www.nacac.org for more information.
- NACAC is providing an online tool as a central resource for information about changes in college admissions due to COVID-19. Please check this website daily as more schools will be added. Please note that some colleges have extended their enrollment deposit to June 1 (from May 1).
- Many colleges across the US have closed their campuses and have therefore canceled their campus visits, admitted student days, and shadowing events. While you are not able to physically visit the campus, we suggest doing the following:
- Take a virtual tour of the campus via a link on the college's website to remember (or see for the first time) what the campus looks like, and/or visit www.campusreel.org to view over 300+ college videos.
- Join an admitted students group on Facebook or other social media, if applicable, to get to know your potential future classmates and the culture of the student body.
- Review the list of your most important criteria for choosing a college and assess (via a spreadsheet, if necessary) which of your choices best matches your list.
- Go back to college websites, or reach out to college personnel (admissions, faculty, athletics, accessibility office, etc.) to answer any remaining questions you have about the college.
- Know that one of the most important determinants of your college experience is you, and what you make of your time there. Trust that you can have an amazing four years at any of the schools you're considering.
