​Hello, SEA Episcopal Church and Community. I hope that you and your families are doing well and are staying healthy, physically, and mentally. I do want to say it was great to see all of you on Sunday mass. 

At this time, I would like to keep you updated on the preschool. We closed on Monday, March 16th, and we will stay closed through May 1st. We plan to have the teachers come back to work on Monday, May 4th, and the children to come back on May 5th. We will follow all of the guidelines that are set for us by licensing, CDC, and the San Mateo County Health Department. We will review all of our plans week by week.

Our plan is not to furlough or lay off any staff members. We have an exceptional staff, and they have been with us for a long time. During this time, they will be paid their full salary. Which they are all grateful.

I have asked the parents to pay at least 25% of their monthly tuition if they can to help cover the tuition salaries. I can say that the response has been fruitful from these great families we have. 

We will be looking into a small business loan for Payroll Protection under the Cares Act. 

I will continue to update our church family on the preschool. 

Thank you, and stay healthy and safe.
