Scarsdale Adult School E-News
September 2021
Changes and Postponements
Scarsdale Adult School prides itself on prioritizing outstanding customer service and the well-being of our student body. Many of you have spoken and we have listened. Several classes have shifted from in-person to online instruction and others have postponed the start date to allow the latest infection rates from the Delta variant and potential new variants to decline.

Additional changes are likely to occur throughout the term. We strongly encourage students to register for classes through our secure, online system to be certain that you are seeing the most current status of the courses at the moment any changes are made. Rest assured that all enrolled students are notified via email whenever a class date or location is changed or cancelled and given options to transfer or withdraw, as appropriate to the circumstances.
As of today, the following courses, originally scheduled to be in person, have changed to a Zoom-based instruction method:

  • Book Discussion: Historical Fiction About Artists and Architects (10821)
