We have been facing an exceptional situation for the past few weeks. Each of us is faced with the unknown and the authorities of our countries are making extremely strong decisions in an attempt to regulate the pandemic.
Saturday evening, the Prime Minister of the French Republic asked for the closure of all non-essential public places as well as the establishment of teleworking on a large scale.
Last night, the President of the Republic declared a state of war on the territory, and measures will be announced to this effect today and tomorrow as part of the Ministerial Council, strengthening the measures announced this weekend by the Prime Minister.
We wanted to assure you of our complete solidarity in these moments when our community makes more sense than ever.
Animating the network of a large school that welcomes students and has enabled careers worldwide, for more than 200 years, gives us a particular perspective on this pandemic: we will be united, exemplary in what is within our reach to fight this crisis wherever it prevails and know that better moments await us soon, individually and collectively.
Take care of yourself and your loved ones,
Stéphane Distinguin (97)
