Good day Brent Families,

Out of an abundance of caution, we are cancelling Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTCs) and all other activities planned for Monday, March 9. There will be no offices open on Monday, either. This comes after the recent diagnosis of multiple new cases of Covid-19 in the Manila area, and the Department of Health’s recommendation that the alert level be raised to “Code Red”.

By cancelling the PTC’s we will be given an extra day to monitor and assess the situation surrounding these new cases in the Philippines.

Fortunately, to date Brent Schools have been able to continue with classes as usual. Our plan is to continue with classes on Tuesday March 10, however, the possibility that the Covid-19 virus spreads more widely is real, and we must all be prepared for the possibility that we are forced to move to Home Learning. We will continue to update you as the situation develops.

In the meantime, I have attached the guidelines we have developed to facilitate high-quality Home Learning should the need arise. Please familiarize yourself with this document and reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions.

As always, the health of our entire Brent community (students, staff, teachers, and families) remain our top priority and concern.


Mr. Brett Petrillo
Headmaster/Upper School Principal
