Important PSR COVID Update

PSR COVID UPDATE

Recent communications from the Franklin County Department of Health and the Diocese of Columbus both strongly recommend that Parish School of Religion programs begin the school year fully remote.  This is especially necessary here at St. Peter since our PSR program includes families from multiple school districts and the high rate of new COVID 19 cases spread throughout the community. 

So that we may keep our families and catechists as safe as possible, WE WILL BEGIN THE PSR SCHOOL YEAR FULLY REMOTE.  Thanks to the $3000 grant we received from the Catholic Foundation, we hope to have the necessary equipment for remote classroom instruction.  This will not impact those families who selected the parent led home study option or our First Grade Pilot Program.  First Graders registered for the Pilot Program will continue to attend the 9:00 am Mass weekly with their families followed by a mini-lesson in the church.  First graders may also register for the parent led home study option as well.

We will stay fully remote until at least Nov. 1.  If health statistics improve during the school year, we intend to return to at least partial in-classroom instruction.  Details regarding how to access the remote learning and additional information regarding grade specific programming will be sent out to all registered families by early September.  Please note this plan is flexible and will continue to evolve as we receive additional information from both the State of Ohio, the Department of Health and the Diocese of Columbus.   Be assured that we will follow health and safety guidelines for the safety of our students and volunteers. 

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this necessary change in our PSR program, please contact Jeannette Stone at [email protected] or 614-889-1407. 

 

The last day to register for PSR is Monday, August 17 – No Exceptions

Registration forms are available on the parish website at https://stpetercolumbus.com.
