COVID-19 Precautions

We plan to hold Reunion Weekend in person, with our COVID-19 precautions in place. In consideration of the health and safety of our Groton community, we ask that all attendees be vaccinated. 

To reduce risk during the pandemic, many activities will occur outdoors. Our protocols require that all attendees wear a mask inside any building.

Prior to attending, we ask that you monitor your health. If you are feeling unwell, please plan to stay home. In the Cui Servire spirit, Groton trusts that those in attendance will follow all the above guidelines.

Please bear in mind that all plans are subject to change, based on the state of the pandemic. As the event draws nearer, we will provide information about any additional COVID precautions and requirements. 

Childcare

Little Zebras: 
We will be offering a "Little Zebras" kids program for children ages 5+ (who are fully vaccinated). On Saturday, June 11 from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. children will have the opportunity to play games and sports outside, enjoy a pizza dinner, do crafts, and watch a movie under the supervision of a child care professional and her team of enthusiastic Groton students. There will be a $20 fee per child. Please add this option when you register for the reunion. 

You must also complete the "Little Zebras" registration form by May 14, 2022. Click here to download.  Please email this form along with a photo of your child(ren) to amacbride@groton.org.

Babysitting Service: 
For families returning to the Circle with children under the age of 5, please visit Summersitters.com for local babysitters. Families can also download the Summer Sitters App directly from the App store and submit requests there.

Please reach out to Allison MacBride at amacbride@groton.org with any specific questions.
