Response to COVID-19

Dear Members of the Birch Wathen Lenox Community:

We recognize that this is a stressful and uncertain time for families, and that it is difficult to make plans for the summer and beyond during the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. We have decided that BWLOnline, our successful distance learning program, will continue in all three divisions through the last week of school. Our building on East 77th Street will remain closed. BWL’s Summer In The City camp program, and all summer courses, are also canceled. The last day of school will be Friday, June 5th in Lower School and Tuesday, June 2nd in Middle and Upper School. 

All of our students and faculty have demonstrated tremendous grit and resilience during this challenging period. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate this rapidly evolving public health crisis. Stay healthy and safe.


Headmaster Frank J. Carnabuci III
