As we continue to navigate our current situation, COVID-19 protocols will be in place for all future class sessions which includes but not be limited to: ZOOM class sessions, abbreviated class hours, multiple classes per Saturday per month, or other alternative teaching paradigms if necessary. We will continue to keep you updated should any changes occur.

 

If you have registered for any class that was canceled due to this health crisis, the ’13-month rule’ will be applied.

 

If you have any questions, please contact us by email and we will be happy to assist you.

WEATHER ALERT PROCEDURES

In the unfortunate event of inclement weather during a Saturday PDSOM class session, the following actions may be taken:

 

OPTION 1:

 

  • The Bethlehem and Monroeville campuses have the option of canceling their weekend and recommending to three alternative campuses:
    • Bethlehem students may travel the following weekends to the Monroeville, Philadelphia or Camp Hill campuses.
    • Monroeville students may travel to the Camp Hill campus.
    • Camp Hill campus may arrange for its classes to be rescheduled.
    • (Pleast Note: Consideration must first be given to the availability of the Church.)

 

  • Consideration and consultation must happen with the faculty committed to that class for the third Saturday to teach the following Saturday.
  • Adequate notice must be provided to ALL students. This notification will help students who may not appear on the roster for the class but may be making up a class within the 13-month rule.

 

OPTION 2:

  • Postpone class at the given campus for one week having consulted with the pastor of the church and the faculty for that day, depending on location. Then rescheduling the class for one week later.
