Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The latest news and updates on our coronavirus response.

As the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe, we are actively monitoring the situation both domestically and abroad. At this point in the pandemic, we are squarely focused on developing a safe re-opening plan for Pomfret School. Pomfret has an obligation to protect the health and safety of our community – especially the most vulnerable – and an equally important role to play in educating the next generation of Griffins. For the foreseeable future, it will be our job to balance these two overlapping responsibilities with all the care, ingenuity, and grace we can muster.
