Dear Minds Matter Students, Families, Volunteers, and Community Members,
Given the growing concern around COVID-19, I’ve made the difficult decision to cancel all in-person programming for the rest of March. For the next three Saturdays, mentoring will move to a virtual session (details of which are still being decided and will be communicated as soon as we have a reliable method for communication that can accommodate our students’ diverse needs). Sophomore and Junior Writing and Test Prep will be canceled for the next three weeks.
At this time, I am not convinced that this measure needs to continue through the rest of the school year. Though many universities have canceled classes through the rest of the semester, our smaller size and local focus make it possible for us to be more nimble in our approach to cancelation. We’ll be monitoring the situation closely and will be in touch by March 24 with further instructions. In the meantime, please expect communications from your program directors and team leaders.
Wishing you all good health now and always,
