Return to School 2020-21 Archive

During the 2020-21 school year, regular communication with our families was a critical part of SPA's successful response to COVID-19. Our robust Return to School 2020-21 website, which served as a central reference point for all health and safety protocols and guidelines, was an important piece of that communication; the Return to School 2020-21 site is now archived here. In addition, all community-wide updates from Head of School Bryn Roberts during 2020-21are archived below.

For a look back at life at SPA during the beginning of the pandemic in Spring of 2020, please visit the Spartan Online Hub.

We are extraordinarily grateful to the entire SPA community for its support and resilience during the pandemic, and we look forward to reconnecting as a community in the Fall of 2021.
