Dear Students and Parents of Pittsburgh Prep,
COVID-19 – also known as the coronavirus – is a pressing global health issue. While we have not yet been faced with a case in the Pittsburgh region, we are taking steps to ensure the health of all our students, staff members, and their families in the event Pittsburgh is impacted.
Effective Friday, March 13th, Pittsburgh Prep will transition into an online-only learning environment. We will no longer be conducting in-person classes, tutoring sessions, or practice exams in order to minimize risk.
Classes and tutoring sessions will continue as scheduled, with instructors meeting students through Zoom or other learning platforms. Instructors will be in touch with their students on the precise procedures for joining classes, tutoring sessions, and exam reviews.
Our weekend practice SAT and ACT exams will also transition online. We will email interested students proctoring instructions and practice exams on the Friday before each weekend, and it will be incumbent upon the students to not only complete the test, but also adhere to the proctoring instructions to simulate a test day environment. Students who complete these exams must send us their scanned answer sheets by 2:00pm each Saturday in order to receive same-day results.
Our office will remain open during this time. If you are looking for information on Pittsburgh Prep’s classes or programs, please feel free to fill out our contact form and we will be in touch regarding your inquiry.
While we manage this global threat together, we also encourage our students and their families to remain focused on the information local, state, and federal health officials are providing. Links to those resources are below, and we will be monitoring them closely as more information becomes available.
- Allegheny County Health Department
- Pennsylvania Department of Health
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
We will remain in active communication throughout this situation and strive to continue providing the high level of focus and instruction we bring to all our students.
Thank you for your understanding during this time, and please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, comments, or concerns regarding our new online learning apparatus.
