As schools and other institutions throughout the U.S. and the world increase efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Morgan Park Academy has responded in kind to protect the healthy and safety of our students, faculty, and families.
To reduce contacts that could aid the spread of the new coronavirus, we have closed campus for two weeks (March 14-29), including our previously scheduled spring break.
We do not have any reports of coronavirus in our school community and have been following all the recommended public health guidelines on campus.
This decision comes from an abundance of caution, a recognition of the rapidly increasing pace of developments in this situation, and the primary importance of safeguarding the health of all members of our school community.
Students and faculty will continue their educational efforts via online remote learning, and we will evaluate our ability to safely reopen campus as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve.
