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.
As a school, we are proud of how Trinity-Pawling responded to the COVID-19 challenge forced upon all schools this past spring and summer. We demonstrated adaptability, flexibility, and foresight as we pivoted to remote learning in the spring and planned to reopen campus safely for the Fall Term. These same traits will lead us forward through the 2020-2021 year.
Trinity-Pawling would not be in a position to open its campus to our students 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 November 30, 2020.
Trinity-Pawling is closely monitoring the presence of COVID-19 on our campus. To date, 1,148 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. Every community member was then tested upon coming to campus for the first time. We also conduct weekly surveillance testing, which targets 20% of our entire community. The safety and well-being of all community members continues to be a top priority at Trinity-Pawling.

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.
