Who, ultimately, makes the final decision regarding St. Philip Neri’s reopening?

We are under the directive of the Archdiocese of Baltimore.  In the event of a state-wide school closure, we are prepared to implement a full distance learning model.

Will there be a reduction in tuition if full distance learning is in place?

Due to the cost of COVID related mitigation and continued operating expenses we are unable to reduce tuition for the 2020-2021 school year.  As an independent school of the Archdiocese of Baltimore we are reliant on tuition and philanthropy to pay salaries and benefits, maintain our facilities and cover COVID related costs.

How will St. Philip Neri ensure students and employees aren't intentionally exposing others?

Please note that intentionally exposing others to illness (e.g., intentionally sneezing, coughing at another individual) will not be tolerated and will be met with appropriate consequences as discussed in the student handbook.

How many students will be permitted in each classroom?

Class size will be determined by square footage and space for proper social distancing in each classroom. In PreK we follow the state Child Care guidelines of no more than 20 students in the room.
