Welcome Back to School After Pooled Testing

January 4, 2022

Dear Families,

I am writing with an update on our return to class plans for the second semester.

  • Toddler and Primary classes will return to campus tomorrow, Wednesday, January 5, and will follow the usual Wednesday schedule, including After Care.
  • For students in Kindergarten through PG, we are still waiting on the results of yesterday’s pooled testing. It appears unlikely that we will receive the results today. We will reach out to families via email at approximately 7:00 this evening to let you know whether classes will resume on Wednesday, January 5 or on Thursday, January 6.
  • Once we have the results of Monday’s pooled testing, our Health Services Office will notify only those individuals who are part of a positive pool and will arrange to administer a rapid test on campus.

Thank you to our entire NYA community for your patience and support. We remain committed to protecting the health of our community and keeping our students in school and engaged in school activities.
