The Frisch Criminology club held its first meeting on Thursday, December 10. Co-founders Cailey Erber '22 and Avi Herman '22 described the club as being a place where students "...will dissect both real-life crimes and crimes from TV shows such as "Law and Order" and "How to Get Away With Murder" with an emphasis on legal analysis. Students will also hear from many speakers relating to the Criminal Justice System". The club was well attended by approximately 50 students on zoom and in person.

Due to the increased use of outdoor spaces, the administration and Rabbi Ciner have added additional security to ensure campus safety. Frisch positions security guards at active entrances to the building so, as more doorways are in use, guards have been placed at all entrances and exits not only the main door upstairs, and by the gym entrance. Additional security has also been added to check the student health forms during arrival and to manage the flow of cars, buses, and vans while students are in outdoor classes for this school year.

Some of the new measures put into place to enforce proper social distancing include seating markers where every desk should be, stickers at lunch tables to ensure proper distance, and more properly spaced outdoor seating.
