We are very excited to announce that First St. John Day School will be open for their summer program beginning June 1st. Please visit our enrollment page for more information. We will be making changes due to the updated recommendations from the governor’s office. some of the changes are listed below. We will constantly be updating this list.


*We are now asking for everyone entering the building to wash or sanitize their hands. This includes parents as well as children.

*We will only be permitting children and parents to come in through the back door, and ask that if your child is leaving at 12:00 you use the car line. We really want to reduce the number of people in the building and will only allow parents to pick up extended care children by coming into the building.

*If your child has a fever or is not feeling well, please do not bring them to school. Children will have their temperature taken as they arrive with a touch free thermometer.

*We will continue to spend extra time sanitizing our building and washing hard surfaces many times a day.

*We will continue to monitor the situation and will follow the guidelines set up by the state and the governor’s office.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office.

“Train up a child in the way he should go,

       And when he is old he will not depart from it.”   Proverbs 22:6

Many people have been inquiring about the Day School’s plan concerning the COVID-19 virus. At this point we plan on staying open during regular hours. If the state requires us to close we will of course follow their recommendations. The best defense against the Corona virus and any other virus is to be diligent with regular hand washing and disinfecting surfaces. We encourage our students to clean their hands, cough into their elbow and to try to keep their hands away from their face and mouth. Our staff routinely disinfect the classrooms. Below is a copy of our Management of Illness and Communicable Disease Policy. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the office.  There are also some helpful hints on our resource page.

If the public schools are forced to close we will be offering child care for children ages 3-12. We will need the following paperwork filled out to accept your child. The cost will be $35 a day and we will provide snacks and meals.

Needed Paperwork

Child Medical Statement and Vaccine Record to be filled out by a doctor.
