COVID-19 Response

Our Approach to the 2022–2023 School Year

Winchester Thurston School remains actively engaged in monitoring current guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Allegheny County Health Department, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the National Association of Independent Schools, and the Pennsylvania Association of Independent Schools as they apply to the WT health and safety plan. Due to the nature of the pandemic, this plan will be flexible and adaptable to changing conditions, science, research, and requirements and will be continually reviewed and revised.

Based on this guidance, all eligible individuals (students and employees) must have received their primary series of the COVID-19 vaccination in order to be on campus.

Religious and medical exemptions will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
