In cooperation with community efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19, the Oxbridge Academy announced that it will close the school, effective Sunday, March 15, and will reopen no earlier than April 6. Students, however, continued their classes online beginning Monday, March 16.
There are no reported cases of COVID-19 at Oxbridge Academy, nor with anyone associated with the school’s community.
“We have been closely tracking COVID-19 since January and have been preparing to take alternative measures for remote learning to protect our students, faculty, staff and the greater community,” Oxbridge Head of School Ralph Maurer said. “We feel strongly that this is the right action to implement in order to help prevent and mitigate the impact of COVID-19.”
Oxbridge faculty have been trained to deliver online classes and will be delivering interactive lessons in a live virtual classroom environment five days a week.
Spring break is still scheduled for March 23 to March 30. Online classes will resume on March 31.
