It’s a new world and NYC private schools are preparing for reopening. In A Guide to Reopening NYC’s $50,000-a-Year Elite Private Schools Amanda Gordon of Bloomberg writes,

<Unlike NYC public schools>, Its smaller and richer private schools have no such problems with money or resources. Instead, at $50,000 a year or more, these schools must contend with the demands and expectations that come with parents whose pockets are deep enough to pay the tuition.

“The reality is, there is no universal approach to reopening schools at this moment, just the best model for each school community,” Bodie Brizendine, who leads Spence, a private all-girls school on the Upper East Side, wrote to parents.

Gordon summarizes the plans of eight well-known Manhattan and Riverdale private schools. They all differ; confusing families even more as they try to work out what’s most desirable for their children.
