Brookwood School is monitoring the COVID-19 situation carefully and is taking proactive and prudent measures to ensure the health and safety of every member of the community. As such, Brookwood’s will be closed until May 4, 2020 in order to prevent any possible spread of this virus. Though our campus is closed, our community is up and running with distance learning and working. Please reach out and we’ll be happy to help.
