Dear Shalhevet Family,

As we continue to navigate the shifting tide of COVID-19, we at Shalhevet have had the chance to reflect on our core values. These ideals, always present in our work, have become more important than ever as education and the school experience continue to change. These values have guided us in our approach to our school year, and we are continuing to adapt our procedures to honor them throughout this exceptional time in history.

Our highest values are, as always:

  1. To maximize in-class learning, and promote Shalhevet’s highest standard of educational quality, spiritual guidance, and co-curricular opportunities regardless of where learning takes place.
  2. To take every possible precaution to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff.

Here you will find our plans and our contingencies to ensure that we remain true to these dual ideals. Please note, as the situation continues to evolve, our plans may change as well. Regardless of the circumstances though, our decisions will be guided by what is best for the physical, academic, spiritual, and emotional health of our entire school community.

If you have any questions or concerns about our program, we welcome you to reach out to [email protected]


Rabbi David Block
