Dear School of Education Students,

We are excited to welcome you back this spring. You have just received an email from Johns Hopkins regarding important information on the use of campus facilities this spring, and we are following up to clarify our school-specific information.
The School of Education continues its academic offerings in a remote, online format through spring 2021. Our Education Building, at the corner of 28th and North Charles streets, remains closed to widespread use.
If you live in and around the Homewood campus, however, you likely will notice increased activity as the Johns Hopkins undergraduate community returns to hybrid instruction. Undergraduate classes start January 25, beginning with remote instruction and shifting to limited in-person instruction a week later, with COVID testing and monitoring in place.
Social Compact
We urge you to join the broader Johns Hopkins community in keeping one another safe and healthy by following best practices for halting the spread of COVID-19 as outlined in the Johns Hopkins Social Compact, developed by faculty, staff, and students to outline our mutual responsibility to each other.
In addition, the university is enforcing a series of policies to reduce the risk of COVID-19 on its campuses. If you plan to come to the Education Building or any other Johns Hopkins facility, you must:
  • Use the Prodensity app or website daily before coming to campus
  • Meet the flu vaccination requirement
  • Wear a facial covering at all times, indoors, and outdoors
  • Maintain appropriate physical distance
  • Follow university and local limitations on gathering
  • Adhere to travel conditions and restrictions introduced by state and local authorities and the university
COVID Testing
You must also follow the School of Education’s COVID-19 testing protocol:
  • All employees, faculty, and graduate students who are on campus weekly, more than 15 minutes each week, are required to test once weekly.  
  • Affiliates who are on-campus less frequently are required to test the weeks they are on campus.  
  • All other affiliates are exempt from mandatory testing. 
In order to participate in testing, you must enroll in MyChartYou must have an active MyChart account to schedule COVID-19 asymptomatic tests and to retrieve your test results. Please refer to the MyChart Tip Sheet for step-by-step instructions. Every week you plan to be on campus, schedule a COVID test. You can sign up using MyChart to schedule an appointment for an “Asymptomatic COVID-19 Saliva Test” at any of the JHU locations. If you are only visiting campus sporadically, you should plan to get tested the day you are on campus.
Coronavirus Information
All helpful COVID-19 information and university plans will be updated on the JHU Coronavirus Information site. You can find information about testing site locations and schedules on the university’s Coronavirus Information Diagnostic Testing webpage. Any school-specific information will be posted on COVID-19 Student Updates. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to Student Affairs Director Teri Murray at

Have a safe, healthy, and productive semester—and thank you for your commitment to the important work in front of us.
