Indiana Academy Spring Break Update

Friday, February 26, 2021

Dear Indiana Academy Students and Families:

Ball State University is not having a spring break this year, but both the Indiana Academy and Burris will have a spring break. Academy students living on campus will move out of the residence hall on Friday, March 5, and return to the residence hall on Sunday, March 14. Additional information on moving out is forthcoming from Paul Douglas, Director of Residential and Student Affairs.

The following requirements must be met before students can return to the residence hall on March 14.

  1. All students returning to campus, including non-residential students, must complete a COVID-19 self-certification form. This form will be similar to the one students completed before moving into the residence hall in August. Instructions for this will be sent next week.
  2. Students who travel outside of Indiana during spring break must submit a COVID-19 test before returning to the residence hall. Instructions on submitting a COVID-19 test will be sent next week.

Additional quarantine restrictions are in place for students who travel out of the country during spring break. If you are traveling outside of the U.S., please contact me (see contact information in signature) ASAP to discuss these restrictions.

Students who remain in Indiana may get a COVID-19 test before returning to the Academy, but this is not a requirement.

We thank you for your patience and understanding. We will continue to communicate with our community any further pandemic issues or decisions that have implications for our students, faculty/staff, and families as they become available. For more information about COVID-19, please visit our website.
