"In the end, it will be impossible to know if we overacted or did too much, but it will be QUITE apparent if we underacted or did too little."


We are asking everyone to take this matter seriously, AND not to panic. Please continue to wash your hands thoroughly and frequently, use social distancing practices, and follow the guidance to avoid group gatherings.


We understand the stress and anxiety surrounding this situation. Keep your family safe.

The first two days of the closure, Monday and Tuesday (3/16 & 3/17), will be designated for finalizing plans and communications. These days will not have to be made up by students since we have not used any “snow days” to date. We will send another communication Monday (3/16) night to update you with the academic plans.
