Due to the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions in place for operating in-person summer programs, Darien Summer School will be moving to a virtual platform this year.
— an announcement from Darien Public Schools
While we had hoped to be able to see our DSS participants and staff in person, after thoughtful consideration regarding all aspects of our unique programming, it was decided that this would be the most feasible and safest option for everyone.
Our teachers are already hard at work developing fun, interactive, and flexible programming that will fit within families’ summer schedules.
Many classes will involve exciting activity kits such as the activity boxes that will be delivered to students enrolled in “Out of this World — Science Exploration” while others will involve unique opportunities such as our Quiz Bowl campers’ chance to interact and compete with students from around the country without ever leaving their home.
Please check the DSS website (www.dariensummerschool.com) for more information about virtual classes including new course times and prices. Many class prices have been significantly lowered in recognition of the different format this year.
Those who had already registered for DSS will have the ability to choose between maintaining their registration in classes that are running, transferring to a different class, or cancelling their registration.
Information about this process and the link to the transfer/cancellation form is located under the “General Information” tab of the website.
We hope to see you online this summer!
