Dear St. Mark’s Community,
 
I am pleased to share that there were no positive COVID-19 results from the tests administered to boarding students yesterday, Wednesday, February 17. Additionally, there were no positive COVID-19 results from the remaining day student tests from Tuesday, February 16. Therefore with no additional positive test results in our student population, we will return to the Yellow phase of our Campus Operational Phase Levels tomorrow, Friday, February 19. Boarding students and day students will return to in-person learning at that time.

As part of our return to the ongoing surveillance testing, both day and boarding students will be tested on Friday, February 19. Additional details are listed below.
