St. Paul's Coronavirus Response

St. Paul's Episcopal Day School is closely monitoring information regarding the spread of COVID-19 (a.k.a Coronavirus), and we are following the guidance and directives of our local health department, the state and local government, and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). 

For now, our campus is closed until further notice, and St. Paul's students are learning through our online E-Campus. We will continue to update current families through our internal St. Paul's Connect portal and via email from school leaders. As circumstances change, general updates will also be shared on this page.

"We have tremendous faith in our St. Paul's community.  Our team is embracing this opportunity, and our faculty and students  are rising to the occasion.  St. Paul’s exists to develop confident learners, ethical leaders, and compassionate engaged citizens.  This unprecedented trial provides us with the opportunity to grow in our humanity, and we are calling on our community to focus on optimism, a growth mindset, resiliency, and love for our neighbors."

- Andrew Myler, St. Paul's Head of School

E-Learning Highlights

E-Learning with SeeSaw

Kindergarten student, Sloan, uses an online tool, SeeSaw, to draw a digital picture of what she sees outside her window. This is just one of many resources that families can use to foster creativity while learning at home.

"I’m writing to tell you how impressed I am with the eLearning experiences that were shared today. It is evident our teachers were so prepared. I’m also so thankful we had the foresight to put in place a tool such as SeeSaw this school year. That app is allowing our children to see and hear from their teachers and have some sense of normalcy.”

“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how impressed I am with the way school went yesterday.  It was apparent that the staff was prepared (and had been preparing).  Everything was clear, organized and easy to execute.  My kids jumped in because it felt familiar to them and they were able to work fairly independently, more than I would have anticipated.”

“I wanted to send out a quick thank you for all of the hard work you all have put into the e-learning for our kids. I had some anxiety about how yesterday would go and thanks to all of you, it was a smooth transition. I wanted you to know how many of us appreciate all the work that you have put into this, as well as what you continue to do.”
