(CNN)As President Donald Trump continues to demand a return to in-person classes for schools around the country despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the school attended by his youngest son has received an order prohibiting on-campus learning for the start of the school year.

Montgomery County, Maryland, on Friday issued a directive demanding that private schools not conduct in-person learning until October 1.

Barron Trump, who is slated to enter 9th grade in the fall, attends St. Andrew's Episcopal School, a private school in Potomac, Maryland, part of Montgomery County.

St. Andrew's school administrators have stated a desire to start the school year in early September, on-time and with in-person learning for the staff and students, according to a letter sent to parents last month and seen by CNN.

"We are hopeful that in September most of our students will be able to return to on-campus learning and relationships," wrote St. Andrew's Head of School Robert Kosasky in a letter to parents.

St. Andrew's faculty and staff have since May been preparing for in-person, combination in-person and virtual, and fully virtual learning scenarios for all of the student body.

St. Andrew's has 645 students in its student body, and tuition for the upper school is approximately $45,000 a year.

CNN has reached out to St. Andrew's and the White House for comment on the new order preventing private schools from in-person learning until October.
