Families were sent a letter that the transition will allow all students, academic staff, and Corporate Work-Study Program (CWSP) to work from home.

The letter, in part, said "Although there are no reports of COVID-19 within our school community, we have determined through careful reflection on the science and history of pandemics and in consultation with public health advisory bodies that this transition to remote study and work is of critical proactive importance towards ensuring social distancing and self care (including the possibility of self-quarantine as necessary)."
