St. John’s Waiver for Re-Opening

St. John’s Waiver Parent Letter


July 17 – School Update

Dear SJLS families,

God’s grace and peace be with you! I am thankful that all of our families have continued to partner with us through this entire COVID pandemic. I believe that God is with us in any situation, which is why the school theme for 2020-2021 is “Faith Over Fear!”

St. John’s leadership is expecting updates from Governor Newsom at 12 noon concerning K-12 schools. While we do not know what the school update will be, all of us at St. John’s Lutheran Church and School want you to know that we are committed to your family. As a private, Christian school we enjoy many freedoms that our public peers do not. These freedoms are a gift from God. Once the announcement has been made, St. John’s leaders will carefully look at the new guidelines and continue to walk by faith into this coming school year.

No matter what the announcement is, St. John’s commitments remain:

  • Proclaim Jesus Christ and the Salvation that comes through Him
  • Provide exceptional teachers who love and care for your children through this storm
  • Provide an exceptional education no matter what the venue or platform
  • Walk alongside your family as we all endure the uncertainty placed before us

The survey sent out this week indicated that approximately 75% of our families want a face-to-face experience for their children and 25% of families want an online experience. We are committed to offering both options for our families as health guidelines allow. We are also excited about some outdoor classroom settings! We will be communicating consistently throughout the coming weeks leading up to our August 18 first day of school. You can always find the latest updates at www.sjlslearning.com.

Always remember: “What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Faith Over Fear!

Uniforms 4U is OPEN!

Uniforms 4U is the only Uniform supplier in Orange County that has reopened its doors. 

In order to ensure the safety of our guests and employees our dressing rooms at our Irvine location will temporarily be unavailable due to CDC and the State of California guidelines. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 
This will also ensure Uniforms 4U can remain open to in store appointments for sizing purposes and accommodate more families. We will offer and accept appointments in 45 minute slots for sizing your students. The first appointment of the day will begin at 9:30 am Monday-Friday with the last appointment at 4:15. This schedule will allow for proper sanitizing before and after each appointment.

We ask that only the students being sized along with parents attend the appointment to ensure proper distancing guidelines. Masks are required under State guidelines and CDC recommendation. 

If you need to delay, reschedule or cancel your appointment please notify the store with 24 hours notice as space is limited. 

Our online stores are always open 24/7. We also will offer Saturday appointments July 18th and August 15th. 

Thank you for your patience and support as we all try to work through these uncertain times together. 

Sincerely,Your friends at Uniforms 4U
