Coronavirus (Covid-19)

The latest news and updates on coronavirus.

As the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread across the globe, we are actively monitoring the situation both domestically and abroad, with the ultimate goal of minimizing the risk of exposure for our students and employees through social distancing. In particular, we have activated a Coronavirus Task Force, which is meeting on a regular basis to identify and mediate risk, and plan for the future, as it relates to coronavirus. 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 holding up our end of the social contract.
