Dear Preschool & Inquiring Families,
We hope this letter finds you well. Thank you for your interest in the Orenco Christian Preschool!
As you know, this has been a difficult year, as our preschool closed its physical presence in March of 2020 for the remainder of the school year. It was our hope to reopen after that temporary pause – along with other schools in our community – but that obviously was not possible. We also hoped to reopen in early and mid-fall, but the obstacles were insurmountable each time we examined our resources available.
At this time, it is our disappointment to announce that Orenco Christian Preschool will not reopen for the 2021-2022 school year. The board of Orenco Church has determined that there are again obstacles that are not surmountable at this time, including covid restrictions, staffing needs, financial resources, and the resources of our congregation, following a year-long building closure due to the pandemic.
This was a very difficult decision to make because of our love for your children and our community. We pride ourselves in serving our community as best as we can and as God allows and equips us.
At this time, we are reopened for in-person worship, as well as limited children’s events, following all covid-19 restrictions. We invite you to follow our Facebook page and YouTube channel, as well as our website, to stay updated on events for preschool and school-aged children. It is our hope to see you walk through our doors again soon!
Please keep in touch and let us know of your questions and how we may serve you in the future. May God continue to be our hope, as each of us navigate all of the transitions this pandemic has brought to our lives, our community, and our families.
In Christ our Hope,
