Concordia Prep School Weekly Update
Welcome Back and Happy New Year!
From the Office of Admissions – Re-enrollment for the 2021-2022 School Year
Tomorrow, we will be mailing current families the Re-Admission Application Form, and the Tuition and Fee Contract. This year, you have the option to mail in your contract and deposit or fill out the contract through OnCampus and make your deposit with a credit card. General financial information and your child’s financial aid award for the 2021-2022 school year will also be enclosed in that mailing. The tuition and financial information for next year can be found here (2021-2022 Financial Information).

We will offer priority re-enrollment for current Concordia Prep families until February 11, at which time we will begin announcing our admission acceptances to new families. Why so early? On Thursday February 18, 2021, all AIMS schools will be extending admissions offers to new students. In advance of this date we need to know how many spots we have available in order to send out our admissions offers. We currently have waiting lists for several grades, and it is important that we are aware of your intention for the 2021-2022 school year by February 11, 2021. After this date, applications and financial awards for re-enrollment will be considered on the same basis as new applicants. 

If you have any questions, please contact Stephen Berger at (410) 825-2323, ext. 240. or stephenberger@concordiaprepschool.org.

Plans for After the Holidays/New Year
As a courtesy to our families who traveled over the holidays, Virtual School will be held today through Tuesday, January 19 – all classes will be virtual for all students. The school is closed on Monday, January 18 for the Martin Luther King Holiday, and Tuesday, January 19 for faculty professional development. CPS is planning to return to a hybrid schedule on Wednesday, January 20, 2021. We will make a final determination and send out a communication about the hybrid schedule on Wednesday, January 13, 2021.

Here are the travel guidelines and recommendations from Baltimore County Dept of Health, the State of Maryland and the CDC:

Travel increases your chance of getting and spreading COVID-19. Staying home is the best way to protect yourself and others from COVID-19. You can get COVID-19 during your travels. You may feel well and not have any symptoms, but you can still spread COVID-19 to others. You and your travel companions (including children) may spread COVID-19 to other people including your family, friends, and community for 14 days after you were exposed to the virus.

Don’t travel if you are sick or if you have been around someone with COVID-19 in the past 14 days. Don’t travel with someone who is sick. All Marylanders who travel outside of Maryland, or who have traveled to or returned to Maryland, are strongly advised to:
  1. Immediately get a COVID-19 test upon arrival in Maryland or within 72 hours before travel to Maryland. A list of test sites can be found at http://covidtest.maryland.gov
  2. Any Marylander who travels to a state with a COVID-19 test positivity rate above 10% or with a case rate over 20 per 100,000 in the past 7 days should get tested and self-quarantine at home until the test result is received. The District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the States of Delaware and West Virginia are exempt from this recommendation.

Here is a good link to check for positivity rates and case rates per 100,100 in other states:  https://covidactnow.org/?s=1445408
