2020-2021 Religious Education Child SafetyDrop Off and Pickup

Please read the following safety guidlines for drop off and pickup.


All classes will begin at 10:45am. Until further notice, the following schedule will be observed in order to limit the number of students and adults in the parish center during dismissal:

Grades 1, 2, and 3 will dismiss at 11:40am

Grades 4, 5, and 6 will dismiss at 11:50am

Grades 7, 8, and Catechesis of the Good Shepherd will dismiss at 12:00Noon

If you are escorting your child to their classroom at the beginning of class, please go directly to the room and exit the building immediately afterward. At dismissal time, please come directly to your child's classroom. When you arrive, your child will be dismissed and you may exit the building immediately afterward.

Everyone entering the building will be required to wear a face mask. Please make every effort to avoid congregating in the parish center building. The main entrance will be locked by 10:55 and will remain locked until 11:40. If you have more than one child in religious education and they are being dismissed at different times, please notify me and I will arrange to have your children dismissed at the same time.

With the health and well-being of our students and their families in mind, and in keeping with Diocesan guidelines concerning Catholic education in both our schools and parishes. Please note the following changes:

  • We are asking that all parents monitor the temperature and health of their children. A child who has a temperature at or above 100.4°F, or who is not feeling well, may not attend religious education until those symptoms have passed.
  • The state of Pennsylvania issued a mandatory face-covering order​ on July 1, 2020. Note: In any situation in which a face mask is indicated, a face shield may be used as an alternative. All students will be required to wear a face covering while in the building.
  • All adults entering the building must wear a face covering. Catechists will be required to wear a face mask or face shield at all times while in the building.
  • We will provide hand sanitizer for use in each classroom.
  • All classrooms and public areas will be sanitized after religious education classes each week.
  • Water fountains will not be available for public use. If desired, your child may bring a water bottle to drink during class.
