2020-21 School Year

Levels of Operation for 2020-21

Presbyterian School will operate within the following three Levels of Operation. Please note, it is possible that Divisions may be at different Levels of Operation during the school year.

During the Fall, campus is limited to students, faculty and staff as specified in our Levels of Operation. Parents and visitors need advance permission to come on-campus.

If the School is operating in Level 1 or Level 2, but a student cannot be on-campus due to health concerns, he/she may choose to participate in Online Learning.  We are committed to providing an Online Learning program, including access to learning resources and tools to use at home, for all students, PK3-8th grade throughout the school year. Families choosing Online Learning in lieu of On-Campus Learning must commit to at least one month of Online Learning (with the option of extending the time period) and must register their Online Learning preference on our Learning Selection Form.

We believe that we have a shared responsibility to promote the health and safety of the greater Houston community during this challenging time. So after a great deal of planning and praying, reading and researching, and watching and listening, we have concluded that the safest way to open Presbyterian School this fall for the people of Houston and our PS community is to conduct Online Learning
