Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates from DV

Delaware Valley Friends School is committed to ensuring the health and safety of all students and adults in our community. We are closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and the implications for the Delaware Valley, our nation, and across the globe. As we navigate this unprecedented situation, we remain a close-knit community committed to supporting one another and deeply concerned for all those who are affected in a multitude of ways by this coronavirus.

We will continue to post our past and ongoing communications to the community on this webpage as well as providing useful resources. The school’s COVID-19 Response Team is meeting regularly to steer the school’s course during this situation and to support our students, families, faculty, and staff actively and is taking its lead from the CDC, Chester County Health Department, and other authorities. We hold all those affected by COVID-19 in the Light.
