Dear St. Andrew’s alumni community,
As I’m sure you can imagine, we here at St. Andrew’s have been working very quickly to “find a way or make one” as we are committed to continue living out our important mission. After getting the plan in place for our faculty, students, and parents, I next wanted to reach out to you.
During this time of uncertainty, I want you to know that we are thinking of you, your families, and your loved ones. This is a pandemic that affects us all, and I want you to know that we are here and will do anything in our power to provide support should you need anything.
I also want to inform you on steps your alma mater is taking to keep our community connected and informed. Although our campuses are temporarily closed to external visitors, our school continues to operate and move forward. Starting Monday, March 23, we will implement our Continuity of Learning Plan
by transitioning to virtual learning.
While this is a unique circumstance for many schools, it is not new to St. Andrew’s. As a Malone School - and the only member of the Malone Schools Online Network in Mississippi - our students have taken online and virtual courses for the past five years. We are fortunate already to have expertise and experience in this area, as it allows us to find innovative ways to continue learning for all St. Andrew’s divisions and grade levels.
We plan to take this approach until it is safe for all to return to our campuses. Additionally, the MHSAA has suspended all interscholastic sports and fine-arts activities through March 29 and until further notice.
We encourage you to visit St. Andrew’s COVID-19 webpage
for updates on the school’s response. You will also find resources and links to the latest information on preventative measures.
As you well know, St. Andrew’s is a community that exists far beyond our two campuses. We are a global network of alumni, students, families, faculty, and staff that share a special bond and a love for St. Andrew’s Episcopal School.
We hope that you connect with one another and with us during this time, knowing that together we will navigate through this adversity and ultimately emerge as a more resilient community of Saints.
Our school motto rings truer today than ever: we will find a way or we will make one, and wherever you are in the world, please know that your St. Andrew’s family has you in its prayers.
St. Andrew's Episcopal School
