During Laurel School@Home, we will continue to share relevant resources for our parents. Here, you will find not only informational resources about the COVID-19 pandemic, and parenting advice on how to help your children cope, but also about distance and online learning.

Laurel School is a strong community—of learners, teachers, parents and alumnae. I know our legacy of rising to challenges, and I see our current situation as an opportunity to discover a great deal about the adventure of learning.

Our foundation as a school that embraces and leads with innovation positions us to take on the new world of Laurel School.
