COVID-19 Resources and Information

St. John's Parish Day School and Community:
 
In light of the current pandemic circumstances as well as state and local mandates, we will continue our Distance Learning Program for the remainder of the school year. Please see  Recent Communication below for the Head of School's entire message. We recognize that this time can be stressful for families and we also want to be mindful of how our students are feeling. Our Chaplain, Joanne Tetrault, will continue to be a resource for families during the Distance Learning period. Please email her at jtetrault@stjohnspds.org if you would like words of encouragement, counseling, and prayers. 
 
This page also houses current information and free resources with a variety of ideas and learning tools. It will be continuously updated throughout the next several weeks as information becomes available.  If you have any questions or concerns related to St. John's Parish Day School's response to COVID-19, please contact communications@stjohnspds.org
Distance Learning Resources

 

To help parents, caregivers, and students better navigate this new learning platform, we’ve collected  tips and resources for you:

Thank You Card
  • As an act of kindness, create thank you cards to send to any first responders in your family or community. Download the card here
Sunday Virtual Children's Chapel
Movement
  • Start moving and singing (particularly ages 3-8) with the creative efforts of Mrs. Enokian and many songs familiar to our students.  St. John's Spotify playlist
Reading

Math

Miscellaneous
We are closely following the State recommendations of Governor Hogan and the Association of Independent Maryland Schools (AIMS). If at any time, their recommendations guide schools to close for the remaining 2019-2020 school year, it will be in our wider community’s best interest to do so for everyone’s safety and health. Please know, our faculty and staff are more committed than ever to providing the best platform possible for teaching and learning. Distance Learning requires an all hands on deck approach with our technology team, faculty, technicians, and administrative staff putting in countless hours to ensure our students have the optimal learning environment, at home.

 

Teaching and learning will continue and therefore SJPDS annual tuition will remain, as is. Families who are experiencing an extreme hardship due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic should contact the Business Office (Svernon@stjohnspds.org) to receive information about Financial Aid or for information about restructuring your current payment plan. Prorated Before and After Care fees will be refunded or credited to your account at the end of the school year.  SJPDS Summer Camp programs will be refunded if interruptions of any kind occur. We are fully committed to our families and living into SJPDS's mission to educate all children in the midst of this evolving local and global pandemic.
