Dear Bridgton Academy Community,

2020年欧洲杯赛程As the nation takes on the challenge of how best to minimize the threat of COVID-19, we at Bridgton Academy have monitored the issue day-to-day, and sometimes even hour-by-hour. Yesterday, Governor Janet Mills announced the first presumptive case in the State of Maine; we expect to see that number grow, as it has in communities across the country.

2020年欧洲杯赛程Because we are at the initial stages of a dynamic and rapidly changing public health emergency, and because the well-being of our students and our community is our top priority, we will be delaying the opening of campus. Today, our intention is to re-open campus on Monday, April 13. This precautionary step will allow us time to better assess this situation and make the safest and most effective decisions for our young men, our neighbors in Bridgton, and the state of Maine.

A delayed return to campus, however, does not mean our work will stop. As part of our crisis planning, the Academy faculty is moving classes, coursework, and assessments to our online platform. Students will be able to access this work on Schoology with their Academy-issued iPads or with any other device with internet connectivity. Binaca Hanson, our Dean of Academics, will share more specific information through a separate mailing. Students should be prepared to undertake their coursework online beginning Thursday, March 26.

In addition to the communication from Ms. Hanson, you will receive regular updates from the Academy as we assess and update our current plan. In the meantime, please contact us at the number below with any questions you may have. 

2020年欧洲杯赛程The Academy opened its doors in 1808, and ever since has been undaunted in its pursuit of educating each and every student under our care. As we have done many times in our history, we will weather the current challenge with grace, a shared sense of purpose, and the highest ideals that have served this community for more than 200 years.

 

Sincerely,

 

Martin J. Mooney

Head of School
