Dear Ranney School Community,
These are unsettling times and my thoughts go out to each of you as we get used to a life of social distancing and relative isolation. Our community has faced challenges before, and we have always emerged stronger, wiser, and more prepared. Times like this forge resilience, inspiration, and opportunity.
We are blessed to be part of a supportive, generous, and entrepreneurial community. In this spirit, we ask that you let us know how we can help each other and the broader community during this time of crisis. We know businesses may be impacted by the current government containment. Local community organizations may be struggling to continue their services and support their clients. In particular, medical professionals are at risk due to the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as surgical masks, N95 masks, gowns, and even gloves.
We ask you to please let us know how we can help. Or how you might be able to help, share resources or support, to our Ranney family and beyond. Please respond to this email or use
to share concerns, ideas or questions.
Please stay safe. I have no doubt that we will emerge from this experience stronger than ever as a community.
Dr. John W. Griffith
Head of School
