Dear St. Mark’s Community:
Today, February 17, St. Mark’s became aware of a positive case of COVID-19 among our student community. The student was tested on campus earlier this week. The student has been isolated and is now off-campus. Contact tracing is currently underway. Additionally, the cleaning and disinfecting of school spaces are underway.
Because of this development, St. Mark’s is immediately moving its Campus Operation Phase Level from Yellow to Orange. Beginning immediately and until further notice, in-person learning is suspended, and all classes will be held remotely. The Brown period is ending immediately.
Boarders need to return to their rooms immediately. Boarders will remain in their rooms until contact tracing is complete.
