Covid-19 Policies and Procedures


Odyssey School is coming together to respond to COVID-19 and the challenges it presents to our school and community. Our Board of Trustees, Covid-19 Response Committee, and leadership teams work to be responsive to changing circumstances in order to bring our students holistic, heart-centered, individualized education on site.
At the heart of this planning is our steadfast commitment to core values, including the protection of the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff, and a shared and individual learning journey seen through the lens of Integral education. We endeavor to create the best possible learning environment to achieve these goals.

As of summer 2022, our Covid-19 Response committee, which has spearheaded the different stages of school response during the pandemic, currently meets on an as-needed basis to make decisions regarding on-going policy. We continue to remain in alignment with NC Strong Schools Guidance, while also using other resources to support our understanding and implementation of best practices in school health policy.

As of April 4th, 2022 our school has moved to mask optional status on campus. All faculty and students (grades Prek-12) will no longer be required to wear masks on campus. We will continue to offer the option for weekly Covid testing throughout the summer to those families who opt-in to this service, as an additional layer of protection. 

The Board and COVID-19 Response Committee will continue to monitor the situation in Asheville and the surrounding areas. We will stay in communication with our families as plans evolve based on changing circumstances.

Odyssey School is an independent, non-profit school with a focus on whole child, emotionally intelligent, personalized curriculum for students in PreK-12.

Our mission is to prepare students, families, and educators to lead the 21st century with an authentic sense of self.
