Dear PDS Parents,
As we open another academic year, there is a sense of déjà vu. The most recent variant of COVID-19, the Delta Variant, continues to spread, and we have watched as cases have risen steadily in the past few weeks. I am sure you have heard by now that the Centers for Disease Control and the American Pediatric Association are recommending masking indoors to reduce transmission. The Shelby County Health Department issued a countywide mask mandate for all children, faculty, staff, and visitors to school buildings effective today.
Your son's health is a priority for PDS. We will continue to monitor medical and professional experts' information and guidelines or requirements provided by local, state, and federal government offices and agencies. Our primary goal in starting this year is to avoid disruption. We desire to have the boys on campus with their peers, learning, collaborating, being very active, and having fun.
Thank you for being so supportive through this ever-changing landscape of educating through a pandemic. It is an honor to partner with you in your son’s academic and spiritual formation. I'm eager to hear the noise of the boys’ excitement and energy filling the halls, and we’re ready to welcome your son to campus!
