Face Covering Policy Update
Upper School | Tannika King,October 15, 2021
At this time, Darlington is returning to our start of the school year policies in regards to face coverings. All students and faculty/staff, Pre-K to 12, must bring a face covering to school. There will be significant opportunities for students to be mask-free during the school day if they so choose. At the same time, we will continue to fully support the adults and students in our school community who choose to wear a mask and strongly encourage mask wearing for anyone whose immune system may be compromised.

For my Senior Ventures project, I will be working with the DarFarm, more specifically the bees. Most people don't know a lot about pollinators and how important they are to the Earth's ecosystem. Bees are one of the major insects in the pollination group and, without their help, there would be a major loss of plants which, in turn, would affect others in the food chain, like us.
