School Response to COVID-19
Building a Bridge to the Future
"2020-2021 will be an extraordinary and historic school year at Trinity-Pawling. The journey will be distinctive, life-changing, and evolving. We will continue to honor important traditions and the timeless values that have distinguished the Trinity-Pawling experience. Yet, we will also continue to be nimble, so as to provide our students with the skills and confidence to adapt to the evolving situation.
I am proud of how our school community has responded to the COVID-19 challenges we have faced since March 2020. Over the last year, we have demonstrated adaptability, flexibility, and a heartfelt commitment to the common good as we safely re-opened campus and provided both in-person and hybrid learning options to our students. I believe that these same traits will lead us forward into the 2021-2022 school year, with COVID-19 hopefully behind us.
Trinity-Pawling would not be in a position to open its campus if it were not for the courage of our faculty and all those others who are dedicated to the healthy learning and growth of the boys whom we teach. We continue to educate and instill a value system that prepares young men to be contributing members of society amidst the challenges of an ever-changing world — it’s our mission. Onward!"

COVID-19 testing and tracking on Campus
This data is current as of May 17, 2021.
Trinity-Pawling is closely monitoring the presence of COVID-19 on our campus. To date, 5,863 total COVID-19 tests have been performed, in accordance with the School's on-campus safety measures and health protocols.
All students (boarding and day), faculty, staff, and on-campus faculty families were tested prior to the start of school each term. Every community member was then tested upon coming to campus for the first time, and then returning to campus for the Spring Term. We also conduct weekly surveillance testing, which targets 100% of our entire community. The safety and well-being of all community members continues to be a top priority at Trinity-Pawling.
For the complete daily COVID-19 report, please view our New York State COVID-19 Report Card.

When we are able to get off of this bridge on the other side, we will do so with the wind at our sails and traction that will allow us to quickly regain the momentum that we have established over the past several years at Trinity-Pawling. I also believe that we will be even a stronger and more vibrant School on the other side of the bridge because of the collective learning and growth that will have taken place.
