Coronavirus Planning & Communications

We are closely monitoring developments related to COVID-19, commonly known as the coronavirus. When we share information with the Saint Ann’s community we will also post it to this page. If you are a Saint Ann’s parent you can find ALL the emails that you have received from divisions and offices throughout the school by signing into your Parent Portal account.

Please note that the high school trips planned for China, Japan, Rome and Peru have all been cancelled at this time. The True Colors Conference high school trip has been cancelled. The Penn Model Congress high school trip has been cancelled.

Saint Ann’s is holding classes remotely until at least April 20. In-person rehearsals, practices and sporting events that were scheduled have been postponed. Administrative and academic offices are continuing to operate during this time.
