COVID-19 Information

St. John's Parish Day School is committed to the safety and well-being of our students, families, faculty, and staff. Our COVID-19 Task Forces continue to monitor and adapt our safety guidelines and protocols with recommendations from multiple sources: Centers for Disease Control, Association of Independent Maryland Schools, Howard County and Maryland Health Departments, and our school Nurses. Please know that our administration, faculty and staff have been and will continue to work tirelessly to safeguard everything special about our St. John's community.
Updates for the 2022-'23 School Year 

St. John’s Parish Day School (SJPDS) will continue to follow, as closely as possible, the professional recommendations of the CDC, Episcopal Diocese, and Maryland Department of Health for COVID-19 recommendations for the health and well-being of our community. 

Masks for the 2022-2023 academic year are a family choice. Please inform your student(s)’s teacher if you wish your child(ren) to wear a mask during the school day.  We ask that families continue to err on the side of caution if their child(ren) is sick and that they stay home to evaluate for COVID symptoms. If a student is exposed, they may choose to wear a mask for 10 days and test on day 6. SJPDS recommends but does not require, COVID vaccinations and flu shots for students. Thank you for your continued support!

Our mission is to educate a culturally diverse community of children with a stimulating and challenging curriculum in a safe and nurturing environment. We foster spiritual grounding in the Episcopal tradition with respect for the dignity and beliefs of everyone. We give our students a foundation to use their individual gifts, encourage them to rise to their full potential, and give them the tools to grow as strong independent thinkers, people of sound character, and active stewards of the world.
