Senior Alumni Reunion

Dear Alumni, 

Thornton Academy is closely monitoring and following the guidelines and recommendations set by the State of Maine and the CDC. Our state has seen an uptick in positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations specific to the Delta variant, and York County has been identified as having a substantial level of COVID-19 community transmission. As a result, the CDC is recommending mask mandates for indoor settings regardless of vaccination status. 

Due to the large group nature of the Senior Alumni Reunion (over 200 guests), the luncheon which would require the removal of masks, and with attendees planning to travel from many states across the country, we feel strongly that canceling the event is the right thing to do in an effort to protect the health and safety of our senior alumni who are at higher risk. 

This was a hard decision to make, and we share in the disappointment that you may be feeling. We hope that you understand the great level of responsibility we feel to make health and safety the top priority in all that we do during these challenging times. 

The Development Team will be reaching out to those who have RSVP’d to the event shortly. Thank you for your understanding. 

The Thornton Academy Alumni Association cordially invites you to the:
