COVID-19 Updates


As conditions of the pandemic are constantly changing, please be assured that Hotchkiss continues to monitor public health recommendations and will adapt safety protocols and plans as necessary. 

COVID-19 Safety & Student Experience

As we begin the new academic year, we remain focused on ensuring the safety of all members of the Hotchkiss community. We are equally committed to making this an exciting, engaging, and fun year. 

In order to start the year safely, we will follow certain protocols during the first few weeks. Thereafter, however, it is our intention for Bearcats to live, learn, and play with as much freedom and normalcy as possible. Vaccination and a nimble response to changing conditions will be critical. Please note that safety protocols can and will be reinstated if needed.
