Grandparents and Special Friends Day

Grandparents and special friends day at Williston

Out of an abundance of caution due to COVID-19, we have decided to cancel Grandparents and Special Friends Day scheduled for Friday, April 24, 2020 on the Williston Northampton School campus. We do not make this decision lightly, and are disappointed that we are unable to host this event; however, social distancing and avoidance of unnecessary travel and gatherings are important in the context of this global health crisis. As such, this is a proactive measure that supports the well-being of all those in our community and beyond.

We send our well wishes to you and your family and we hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. Thank you for your commitment to Williston Northampton School, and for your understanding as we navigate these extraordinary circumstances.

Thank you for understanding.
