Responding to Covid-19

The health and well-being of the NGFS community is always our top priority. We are carefully monitoring the spread of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) and the guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other experts. We will utilize this webpage to update the community about pandemic preparedness.

ACCESS TO NGFS STAFF

In order to safeguard our entire community, we aim to conduct as much school business as possible online and will limit access to campus to essential personnel as necessary. Please reach out to an administrator by email if you need to set up a visit to campus or an in-person meeting. If you have been in a high-risk area as identified by the CDC or have had other potential exposure to COVID-19 (or a recent fever), we ask that all communication with the school happen virtually.
