I was saddened to read that the Wilkes School at Grace and St. Peter’s Church has become a casualty of the COVID-19 pandemic (”When the shutdown is permanent: As Maryland reopens, some landmark businesses and schools are closing forever,” June 11). My daughters attended the school from the mid-1990s through the mid-2000s when it was the Grace and St. Peter’s School.

It was a small, intimate school. Students were racially diverse and from different areas of the city. There was a sense of community among the students, parents and excellent staff. As mentioned in the article, its Mt. Vernon location provided students with a unique opportunity to walk to several of the city’s cultural institutions.
