Dear South Church Day School Families, 

We regret to inform you that the difficult decision has been made to close SCDS for the 2020-2021 school year.  Our mission for over the past 50 years has always been to provide a positive learning experience that develops cognitive, emotional, and social skills which are essential tools for building self-esteem and establishing a love for learning for each individual child.  After careful review of the mandated regulations of social distancing and comingling guidelines from the Department of Early Education and Care  and the advice from public health authorities and pediatricians we could not effectively meet the goals of our preschool program.  First and foremost our priority is, and will continue to be, the health and safety of our students and their families along with the health and safety of our teachers and their families during this unsettling time.  Our plan is to open in September 2021, enrollment will begin in January. Check our Facebook and Website for further details.   Until then, on behalf of Julie-Ann Walsh, the entire SCDS staff and school committee members, we thank you all for your patience, understanding and continued support.  We hope you and your families stay safe and healthy.  Thank you.
