    I hope this letter finds you safe and in good health. Over the weekend, a pipe burst in the basement at Krieger, causing the building’s power and water to be turned off. In order to ensure that the building is safe while repairs are being made, Krieger will be on a remote learning schedule starting Wednesday, April 20, 2022, through Friday, April 22, 2022. We will provide an update on Friday, April 22 on the status of the repair and if the building is suitable for students to return on Monday, April 28. Click on the title to read the whole letter.
