Since my message to you yesterday, there has been one additional confirmed COVID case in our community with someone who was last on campus October 21. Therefore, with a focus on providing the safest environment for our students and staff, and with an absolute abundance of caution, I have made the decision to close the Allis House, with the exception of our Medical Center, for 48 hours.
In addition to our Medical Center, Allis House is home to administrative offices and is not a regular destination for our students. All Allis House employees will remain available and work remotely. This will not have any operational impact on school business. The Medical Center will remain open.
This isolated building closure will allow our cleaning team unfettered access to the space and allow for extensive cleaning before staff return Friday, October 30.
Thank you for your continued flexibility and diligence.
Dr. Brian M. Kelly
Head of School
