Dear AGBU MDS Community,
In light of the threat of the Covid-19 virus and out of an abundance of caution, the Board and Administration agreed that it is most prudent for the safety of our MDS community to cancel the 44th Annual Gala on March 21, the Lenten Lunch on March 25, and reschedule the VPA High School Dance & Art Show on March 27-28. While this may be a disappointment to some, we believe that it is the best course of action per the guidelines provided by our community health officials.  
As we head into spring, we know that there are many important school and family events planned. We remain focused on evaluating each event carefully based on the facts and recommendations available to us at that time. We will certainly do our best to reschedule events where possible.  
Many of you have already made donations and purchased tickets for these events. We will work with each of you in deciding how best to allocate or return those funds. Please know that your contributions are a critical part of investing in our students, curriculum, and facilities. Once our activities resume, we look forward to sharing with you some exciting plans that we have been preparing for our school.    
We are proud of our school community and its resilience as we work together to put the safety of our students, staff, and community first. Thank you for your understanding and our personal apologies for any inconvenience this decision may cause you.
Board of Trustees and Administration
