St John Summer Program 2020
A letter concerning the closing of the Summer Program for this Summer.
Dear St. John Summer Program Family,
We are so grateful for your confidence in St. John and for your pre-enrollment for the Summer Program. With all the issues surrounding the pandemic and its effects on how we live, work and play, it has been prudent for us to gather information and observe the facts. Even with Governor Stitt's "Open Up and Recovery Safely" plan released yesterday, we must weigh the restrictions and guidelines of federal, state and local government, and the many practical issues surrounding the program.
Because of so many unknowns in this moment, along with an interest in erring towards safety first, we have decided not to hold the St. John Summer Program during the Summer of 2020. Governor Stitt's plan only allows any program like ours to open at the earliest June 1, 2020 - our original opening day was to be May 27. But that date is predicated on meeting prior Phase goals that have been laid out - lots of "what if" scenarios when there are so many unknowns.
As both a service to you and your children, and as an employer who also uses volunteers, we feel all of these unknowns make it impractical for us to wait and see any longer. A decision needed to be made. By giving you this amount of notice, we hope to give you ample time to find other options for your children for this summer.
We will make arrangements with our financial office to provide you with a refund of any monies you have deposited with us thus far. Please respond with the mailing address to which we can send the refund.
If not already done so, we hope that you would consider St. John Catholic School for your children this Fall and St. John Summer Program 2021; our plan is to reopen sessions then.
Please let us know if you have any questions. Our prayer is that you and your families are safe.
In humble gratitude,
Fr. John O'Neill, Pastor at St. John
Allison Elmer, St. John Summer Program
Lexi Radebaugh, Principal at St. John School
