Dear Parents:

I am coming to you with a heavy heart. After many years of decreasing enrollment and analyzing budgets, the decision for the future of St. John Elementary has been decided. It was not an easy decision and was not made in haste.   The pastors of this school and Bishop Morin have made the difficult decision to close St. John Elementary for the upcoming school year 2011-2012.  

This school year will continue in the same excellent manner that has always been known at St. John. The faculty and staff have a very important role for the remainder of this school year and that is to provide your children with the best education that we can give to the very end of this school year. 

We appreciate your delicate position and ask that you understand our position also. A meeting with the parents to discuss the details and the closing process will be set at a later date. We at St. John will assist every family in any way possible to insure that this transition is done in a smooth manner. 

You will always be in our prayers and we ask that you keep us in your prayers also.


God Bless You
