Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope you and your family are well.

Over these past few months, I've had the opportunity to speak with many of our school students and families, and I look forward to talking with more of you as we continue through the summer months and into the Fall. I understand fully how difficult things have been for each and every one of you, and most certainly for our children. With all that we have been through and will continue to experience in the coming days, weeks and months, please know that the faculty, staff and I are committed to doing everything in our power to listen and respond to the challenges ahead and provide the best and safest possible experience for everyone this upcoming school year.

Part of my personal commitment has been to assemble a team of teachers, staff, and health professionals (specifically our nurse and counselors) dedicated to planning how school will look and feel when everyone returns. Collaboratively, it is our mission to review all of the resources available to us from the Office of Catholic Education, the State of Pennsylvania and the City of Philadelphia and devise a reopening plan that not only has the safety of our children in mind, but that also addresses the physical, emotional, academic and spiritual challenges they have faced due to the distancing and quarantines. It is my sole focus at this time to ensure a smooth and safe transition back to OLPR and the best, individual experience for the children. Please know that your children are number one here at OLPR. They are the heart of our school and are why we do all that we do.

Below you will find links to all of our communication and information to date for the 2020-2021 school year. Please be sure to check this page and your email for further details in the coming weeks. 


God be with you,
Sr. Mary
