As an administrative team we have been and continue to monitor guidelines and best practices surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19). Additionally, Head of School Kathy Kenny has been in regular communication with Dr. Robert Salata, Chairman of Medicine at University Hospitals of Cleveland and Dr. Salata recommends cancellation of all nonessential domestic and international travel. As a result, Gilmour Academy has made the difficult decision to suspend all scheduled school-sponsored travel, which includes our Middle School trip to Washington, D.C. This decision was not made lightly, but ultimately, the safety and well-being of our students and faculty is of the utmost importance.
Rest assured that we are actively working to unravel the many logistical and financial details surrounding this decision. We ask for your patience, as this will take time in the coming days and weeks.

This week, we would like to congratulate our Middle School Bridge Builder of the Week, Zoe Hayek ’25. Zoe helped a classmate carry a stack of dirty dishes in the Commons and on another occasion opened the lunch door for her classmates to eat before her. As student leaders, small acts of kindness can create big change. Zoe is truly a leader and models the Holy Cross charisms of hospitality and inclusion. We would like to congratulate Zoe on being this week’s Bridge Builder of the Week.
