Message from the Board of Directors and Head of School

 

 

The Board of Directors have collaborated on the decision to close the National Ski Academy as of March 14, 2020. The decision to close is in keeping with other independent schools, as well as publicly funded schools in Ontario. This social distancing will support other initiatives to flatten the curve of the spread of COVID-19 infection.  Our priority is keeping our community safe and healthy.

The Board and leadership team at the NSA continue to stay informed with respect to COVID-19 updates and directives from federal and local officials, as well as medical experts.  We will continue to follow their guidance in the days and weeks ahead. Please understand that this set of circumstances is unprecedented, and we are in a very dynamic situation with major changes occurring by the hour.

Remote learning for Quad 4 classes will begin on April 14 as scheduled with teachers working with their students online by video and through Google Classroom. Our fitness coaches have given each athlete a dry land program to follow at home and our U16 and FIS coaches are checking in with their athletes regularly.
