Dear PREP Families,
Thank you for your patience as we prepare for PREP classes in September.
After much consideration and collaboration with the Archdiocese, St Greg PREP will reopen in September as follows:
In person classes for 2nd and 8th grade only.
All other grade levels 1,3,4,5,6,&7 will be remote.
Sacramental students (grades 2 & 8) will have class on Wednesdays. The 2nd grade will come to school for class 3:30-4:30pm and the 8th grade will come to school for class 7-8:15pm. Students and teachers will be required to wear facial covering, provide a Covid screening, and socially distance. Details on each of these protocols will be sent separately to the 2nd & 8th grades. THE REMOTE OPTION IS NOT AVAILABLE TO 2nd and 8th GRADE STUDENTS.
The remaining grades, 1,3,4,5,6,&,7 will have a remote Loyola assignment and weekly mass reflection submission similar to what we did this past year. Details on what you need to know will be sent separately. You can expect to be assigned to a class/teacher and books will be distributed.
We had hoped we would reopen in person with all grades, but with limited physical classroom space and low volunteer recruitment we could not offer 435 students in person instruction safely. Students’ health and safety is paramount.
Again, details of what parents and students need to know will be sent separately by grade level. Please give us time to send out communications before you call or email. All pertinent information will be emailed, and posted on our website and FB pages by next week.
We are doing everything we can to alleviate anxieties around this decision, we know it is not ideal and not everyone will be happy. Please know we have considered ALL other options, and this was the best decision for our program.
Thank you for your continued patience.

PREP is looking for volunteers for the 2021-2022 session.
There are 30 weekly 90 minute classes from September to May.
We need help in grades 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Students who miss a year of instruction will be required to attend the year (s) they missed. “Skipping years” is not permitted.
Food is not permitted in the classrooms at any time.
Please give your child a snack before they come to Religion class.
Students who bring an electronic device, including phones to class will be required to place it on the teacher’s desk at the beginning of class and get it back at the end of class.
As always it is our hope that parents will partner with us to ensure a safe, positive experience for all students, Catechists and volunteers.
