Back-To-School FAQ

Back-to-School on August 24

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 for all students to begin school via our Online Learning program, beginning August 24. 

In addition to COVID-19 related questions, we know parents have a lot of basic questions about getting ready for the first day of school including backpack purchases, school uniform, homeroom lists, connecting with carpool families, etc. We have put together a helpful FAQ below and a directory of individuals to call if you need additional help.
