COVID-19 Updates

Classes to Begin Wednesday, August 19

When Baylor re-opens on August 19, we will continue to deliver the high-quality academics that Baylor is known for, create a close community experience, and ensure the greatest health and safety of all the members of our community. At this time, we are planning to follow our regular schedule and school calendar for 2020-21.

The Baylor Advantage for Safe Re-Opening

Baylor is uniquely positioned with the ability to provide rapid turnaround COVID-19 testing and antibody testing on campus for all students and employees. Once testing protocols are in place, we will notify our students and parents on testing procedures for the opening of school, as well as dormitory safety protocols. While we cannot eliminate all risks, we are well prepared and will be sharing more information soon. Click here for more.

Athletics Update

Baylor students enrolled in fall sports returned to campus for conditioning on June 8, and we are taking the necessary precautions to allow our athletes to train with coaches for their sport in phases, and by following protocols for each phase. (Click here to review protocols).

The TSSAA Dead Period is from Monday, June 22 - Sunday, July 5. On Monday, July 6, the football (Middle School and Upper School), girls soccer, volleyball, and rowing will return to campus for modified practice, as well as our boys’ and girls’ basketball teams. Coaches of all other fall sports will communicate the status of their start dates with their teams. (NOTE: The school is still awaiting a decision from state and local governments on approval to proceed with our fall athletic events and we will notify our fans as soon as we have more information).

Campus Open for Admission Tours & Essential Employees

Baylor's campus remains closed with the exception of essential personnel and scheduled admission tours for prospective families. (more admission tour details here). We welcome all those who are returning to campus to help with operations related to summer camps beginning June 29, and the re-opening of campus for students on August 19.

Staying Current on Developments

Throughout the summer, we will use myBaylor for updates for parents and students. This will continue as the primary communication platforms with Baylor families on COVID-19. It is critically important that parents partner with us in ensuring that you are using myBaylor and have your notifications turned on. Click here for simple instructions.
