Hello Preschool Families, 


I hope you all are staying safe and healthy, during this unusual summer.


I wanted to give you an update on the 2020-21 school year. 


The Preschool Board appreciated you responding to the parent survey asking about Fall enrollment. They have discussed and assessed our enrollment numbers, operating budget, the Covid-19 situation and the updates from The State of Oregon concerning the Metric System for when school districts can return to in-person learning (our staff would need to have K-3 return to in-person learning to come to work).


It is with a heavy heart that I have to share that the Preschool Board has decided to CLOSE the Preschool through December 2020. The Board will continue to assess the situation and decide in December about reopening in January. 


We will continue to keep your child on their class list unless you contact us. If this doesn’t suit your family's needs at this time, the Board will reimburse your pre-registration fee and any credit you might have for this school year. 


With our lower enrollment numbers we will need to close the Three-Day 4’s (M,W,F) class and move those registered students over to the Pre-K class and have them go M,W and F with the Monday-Friday students.  


We still plan to have the following four classes:

Two-day 3’s  (T and Th) 

Three-Day 3’s (M,W,F)

Four-Day 4’s (M,T, TH, F)

Pre-K (M-F)


Again, thank you for your patience as we tread through these uncharted waters. We appreciate your support of First Christian Pre-Primary School and we look forward to reopening in January. 


Please let me know if you questions.
