Return to School Policies - Prior to School Arrival

Dear Duke School Families,

The Return to School Policies document referred to a daily health screening questionnaire using the Base Camp Health Ascend website link. We used this process over the summer during camp and it went very well. At the time, we were one of the first schools in the country to use the Ascend App. Since then, over 150 schools have been added to Base Camp Health’s client list. As a result, they have been slower rolling out the process for the start of school. Consequently, the link will not be ready for the start of school next week. 

Our backup plan is to use a Google form with the same health questions as the Ascend App. Use of the Google form should last no more than one week beginning Monday, August 24. All enrolled families will receive an email each morning at 6:30 AM with a link to the Google form. The assessment should be completed for each student who will be on campus each day. Please complete the form prior to arriving at school. If you forget to complete the screening prior to arrival on campus, we’ll ask you to pull into the parking lot and take a moment to complete it.  

We apologize for this inconvenience. As soon as the Ascend App is ready, you will receive an email from Duke School with more information.

We thank you for your patience as we continue to work to make on-campus learning at Duke School as safe as possible.
