Poughkeepsie Day School, founded in 1934, has decided to shut down indefinitely after 85 years owing to the global pandemic.
It has been reported that the school was suffering from financial issues. The global distress aggravated the problem further.
The school Headmaster claimed this to be not an isolated incident but a global problem that would affect all private schools with revenue and enrollment issues. Giving an example of the Kildonan private school, he further warned everyone about the shifting demographics, which will affect all schools in general.
The school closes down after spring. The board members have also decided to provide “practical assistance” to all the employees.
