Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a newly diagnosed respiratory illness. We have been closely monitoring guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Department of State and local/regional/national private school organizations to shape our response to the disease’s spread. The COVID-19 situation continues to rapidly evolve. On March 13, Governor Ralph Northam ordered all K-12 schools in the Commonwealth closed for two weeks. On March 23, Executive Order 53 went into effect, requiring all in-person instruction at K-12 schools, public and private, to stop for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.
Browne Academy faculty and administration have been busy planning and implementing a robust distance learning program for students that will run through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
