Dear Preschool Parents,
The Preschool Christmas Show will be virtual this year; we will not have a live event on Friday. Instead, I will record the children performing their songs during their regular class time this Friday (Thursday for the 2-day class) and share the videos with you, probably via ClassDojo. Your child's teacher will let you know if your child should wear something special to school that day. I just spoke with Mrs. Newton, the Preschool Extended Care Director, and she will keep PSEC open until 6:00 p.m. that day (you may disregard her previous email).
This change is an attempt to keep COVID from spreading through our preschool. I value the children's (and your family's) health, and I value being open for school every day. Knowing that most of our preschoolers are too young to be vaccinated was a factor in this change; in addition, your child's attendance was expected at the performance (unlike the optional attendance of the St. Nick Festival).
I am disappointed not to host a live show for you to attend, but I feel this is the best course of action given the current situation. Please contact me if you have any questions.
Peace, Leslie Buehrer Preschool Director St. Vincent de Paul School
