    Dear Shipley Community,

    Beginning tomorrow, March 13, all classes and activities at Shipley are canceled until further notice. As I stated in my email last evening, our current plan is to resume classes on campus after spring break, on Tuesday, March 31. In the event we cannot resume classes on campus at that time, we will implement Shipley Learning Online. I know how challenging this time has been for all of our students, families, and colleagues. I will remain in close contact in the days ahead with additional details. Please continue to use our website as a primary communication vehicle.
