As We Enter Holy Week and Approach Easter

Easter Vacation begins on Wednesday, March 31. The children will have a full day of school on Tuesday, their last day before vacation.

Students may wear their "summer uniforms" when they return to school on Monday, April 12. Students may wear their gym shorts and shirts on PE days. They won't have to wear their long PE pants or PE jackets. They may wear shorts with their regular school uniforms.

We will allow students to wear athletic shoes until the end of this school year, so parents won't have to buy new school shoes near the end of the school year. We will allow leggings or tights with skirts or jumpers through April. Otherwise, we are returning to the school dress code in April. The Uniform Code begins on page 31 of the Parent/Student Handbook. SJB has a uniform page, too.

Tuition Payment Plans Go Out Next Week

We plan to start sending tuition payment plans to families by Wednesday, March 31. We have extended the date to complete and submit tuition payment plans. They are now due on Wednesday, May 5. The change has been made on TADS.

Tuition payment plans are sent by email through TADS. We will notify families when they are sent. After they are sent, families may log into TADS and select a payment plan for the 2021-22 school year and then submit the plan in their TADS account.

Thank you for your patience with the tuition plans. We are sorry for the delay.

Plan After Easter

SJB will resume in-person and distance-learning classes on Monday, April 12. Students who have traveled to a state with a high rate of Covid-19 should be tested upon their return to Maryland and learn from home until receiving a negative test result.
