Woodlynde School that beginning tomorrow repeated masking infractions will result in a student being required to stay home from school the following day.
A Message from Head of School Amy L. Clemons, PA'19
Dear Woodlynde School Community,
As part of our continued effort to maintain the health and safety of our community, students and colleagues in Grades 4-8 were tested for COVID-19 along with administrative colleagues yesterday. We are pleased to report that no positive cases were found.
In addition to the results of our assurance pool testing for Grades 4-8, we have learned of an additional Upper School student that has tested positive. We have reported the incident to the Chester County Health Department (CCHD) for further guidance. CCHD investigates all probable or confirmed reports of COVID-19.
Individuals considered close contacts have been identified and asked to follow the guidelines from CCHD, including recommended testing for vaccinated contacts that remain asymptomatic and mandatory quarantine for unvaccinated contacts.
Recent cases in the Upper School and current research reaffirm the importance of mandatory masking for all students at all times on campus. Given a noticeable uptick in students disregarding Woodlynde's masking policy, members of the leadership team and I will be speaking with Upper and Middle School students this afternoon. During these meetings, we will remind students of our policy and announce that beginning tomorrow repeated masking infractions will result in a student being required to stay home from school the following day.
Our primary concern is for the safety and wellbeing of our students and colleagues. Thank you for reinforcing our school policy with your student at home this evening and for your continued partnership and support in keeping our community healthy.
All my best,
Amy L. Clemons
Head of School
