Jewish Education in the time of COVID
We recognize that all families have been negatively impacted by the ongoing pandemic. For some, the impacts may include financial hardship, and we have taken this into consideration when planning our tuition rates for next year. Additionally, our ability to hold in-person classes has been placed on hold due to the pandemic, and uncertainty of how and when our campus will re-open.
We are actively making technology improvements to design an exciting and interactive Jewish education experience for our families. The SSJS website is also being modernized and updated. In addition to these enhancements, we are preparing at-home learning materials and cultural activities to be used alongside live remote classes.
We have meticulously labored over our operating expenses, the options available for distance learning, and how to create a safe, engaging, and enjoyable experience.
Under the current circumstances, we are offering a reduced tuition rate of $750 for the 2020-2021 school year (if paid in full by June 30th). For those families with more than one child, the tuition will be discounted by 25% for each additional child. And, for those families with children entering the Pre-K/K class, we have reduced the tuition to $50 (if paid in full by June 30th).
A FEW NOTES
Due to the nature of virtual learning, online classes will be shorter in duration.
Supplies note: Our teachers will do their best to use readily available and common household items in their weekly projects and activities. There may be some at home printing required. We will also have a couple of Shalom@Home supply pickup times.
