WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — A private school in Waterbury is closing its doors only weeks before school was set to restart amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
In a Facebook post Thursday, Chase Collegiate School said they regretfully announce that “due to the global and local economic impact related to the current COVID-19 pandemic” (along with other conditions into which they did not elaborate) the school could no longer operate “in a financially sustainable manner.”
The school says their administration offices will remain open to help students and families with records, transcripts, and tuition/deposit returns. The school is also offering employment transition assistance to their faculty and staff.
But, they say, “Due to continued facility restrictions relating to COVID-19, the campus will remain closed.”
Those who wish to contact the school are asked to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 203.236.9500 to schedule an appointment as needed in compliance with government guidelines.
The school first opened in 1865 as the Collegiate School for Girls.
