Significant complications in the mechanical and plumbing work at the Upper School have required the shutdown of the building’s fire safety system. As a result there can be no classes or activities held at the Northrop Campus on Thursday, Oct 27, 2016.
Late bus service will run on schedule to Northrop on Thursday.
Students should continue to consult Canvas course pages for instructions and assignments from teachers, which will be posted by 10 a.m. tomorrow. Given the capabilities that Canvas offers for communication between faculty and students, we determined that the costs of a physical relocation of classes outweigh the benefits.
We anticipate that the building will be open for Friday classes and activities. Should this situation change, we will notify you on Thursday.
We understand that our community relies on predictable and consistent scheduling of our academic and cocurricular programs. Unfortunately, circumstances beyond Blake’s control have required this closure. We continue to work around the clock with contractors and community resources to resolve this situation as soon as possible.
