Dear Lower School Parents,

Today we were alerted that more members of our Lower School community have tested positive for COVID-19. In addition to performing contact tracing to determine any potential exposure and subsequent quarantining, and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to close the Lower School campus after ACE dismissal today. No in-person or remote classes will take place for students in grades WOW-5 tomorrow, Friday, November 20. There are currently no changes to the Middle or Upper School schedule for tomorrow. 
 
While we know this news is both disappointing and distressing, we hope that this early start to the holiday week will lessen the disruptions caused by individual classroom closures.  We plan to resume classes for students currently enrolled in on-campus or remote instruction on Monday, November 30. 
   
We appreciate your support in this difficult time. As always, please feel free to contact the Lower School or our school nurse, Michelle Iavarone, with any questions.
