COVID-19 Extended School Closure Update

Dear Parents of St. Peter’s Catholic School:

Based on recommendations from public health, state, and local leadership that support the safety of individuals in our communities, the Catholic Schools Office has decided to extend the suspension of in-person classes at our school and all Catholic schools in the Diocese of Charleston through April 30. We will, however, observe Spring Break as was planned in our school calendar.  This will give both you and your child(ren) a break from the demands of online learning and allow you some family time free from lessons and homework.

Our teachers and staff have worked tirelessly to partner with you in ensuring the learning and growth of every child, and this effort will continue as we all work together in providing an excellent Catholic education to our students. Please know the Diocese of Charleston Catholic Schools Office continues to support us and remains fully committed to strengthening our school communities and upholding the enduring mission of the formation of the whole child. If you have any questions or need assistance with our distance learning model, feel free to email me or your child’s teacher.

In light of the temporary suspension of public activities, our Mass schedule at the Basilica of St. Peter is also pivoting.  For your participation, we will live stream school Mass each Wednesday at 10 AM on the Basilica of St. Peter’s Facebook Page.

We recognize the significant impact this extended closure will have on our entire community. It is not ideal, but, as a community of faith, we must continue to come together and help one another to communicate, share resources, and offer support.

We remain faithful to the mission of St. Peter’s Catholic School, especially in these uncertain times. We strive to instruct and support all students. We will continue to provide high quality learning opportunities and instruction for everyone in our St. Peter’s family.

We, the faculty and staff, have been blessed to partner with you and look forward to continuing the progress that we have already made this year. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

God Bless,

Mrs. Aubrey Wall
