Alumnae Weekend

Alumnae Weekend 2020 Update

In keeping with the CDC’s recent recommendations to limit large gatherings for the next eight weeks, we must postpone Alumnae Weekend, scheduled for May 1-2, 2020. Please see Head of School Sue Sadler’s video message to the community regarding this decision. 

While we are so sorry not to celebrate these reunion classes and welcome all alumnae back to campus this spring, we know this is the best decision to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community. 

We realize this is especially disappointing for the 0s and 5s classes, whose reunion was also postponed five years ago. We are working on some plans for the fall to celebrate you and connect you with classmates. 

Looking ahead, we will celebrate the reunions of the 0s and 5s, along with the 1s and 6s, during Alumnae Weekend next year. Mark your calendars now for April 30 through May 1 2021.
