Based on guidance from public health experts and local authorities, and with the health and safety of alumni and community members top of mind, Shady Side Academy has decided to postpone Homecoming & Reunion Weekend 2020 to the fall of 2021. It will mark SSA's first-ever double reunion year, with a bigger than ever celebration of reunion classes ending in 0s and 5s alongside those ending in 1s and 6s. A specific date in 2021 has not yet been determined; more details will be provided in the spring.

"We know that many of you, especially our reunion classes, were looking forward to Homecoming this year, and we understand your disappointment upon learning about its postponement," said President Bart Griffith Jr. '93. "However, as an alumnus I know the experience of being together in person, back on campus, with cherished friends and classmates is something that simply cannot be replicated virtually – and we believe it is worth the wait."
