Campus visitor policy

Under normal circumstances, Country Day welcomes parents and visitors to campus since we value the many ways our community supports our students’ growth and development. However, as an additional step to help contain the spread of disease, we are strictly limiting visitors in the current environment.  Among other restrictions, parents will not be allowed to accompany their students into the buildings.

All visitors to campus must adhere to the following guidelines as recommended and required by Country Day and the State of Ohio.
