Dear YALE School Philadelphia Community:

On Wednesday, March 2, 2022 Philadelphia Department of Health announced that it will continue to watch and evaluate the data regarding COVID cases in our region. If we continue to trend in the right direction it is likely that the school masking mandate will be lifted.

At this time, Y.A.L.E. Philadelphia will continue to require that masks are worn by all staff and students. Additional updates will be provided next week should there be a move to limited mask usage.

All other existing health and safety protocols will remain in effect until further notice.

We will continue to monitor transmission rates in our schools and community. Should new evidence emerge which would impact the health and safety of our students and staff we may need to revisit our above policies.

On behalf of YALE School Philadelphia, we want to sincerely thank all of you for your cooperation and patience in regard to all these guidelines. We are hopeful that we are turning the final pages related to this pandemic and eagerly look forward to a normal spring for all of us.


The Y.A.L.E. School Administrative Team
