Tomorrow, January 7, 2022 – Academy goes remote for the day only

Dear Parent/Guardians:

Tomorrow, January 7, 2022, our academy will be doing remote instruction for this day ONLY.

As there is an 80% chance the snow is to begin at 3 am Friday morning making it dangerous to walk and travel with the children.  Therefore, to keep the children, and you, safe, I have decided to use this very special resource of Remote Instruction for the day.

We will be following the usual schedule for First Friday.  Therefore, classes will begin at 8:30 am and end at 12:30 pm, unless instructed differently by their teacher.  Your child’s teacher is posting on their homework page all instructions, as well as review this process with your child/children.  The children are already familiar with this process.

Also, the following must be followed:

  1.  Students must have their cameras on in order for the teacher to see they are participating and be able to mark them present.
  2.  Students will follow the full day with the class.  Classes end at 12:30 pm.
  3. Students will receive their devices to take home and all needed books.  (Please we do not have any extra.  Make sure that your child takes good care of their device because if they are broken, we have no more to give out.)
  4.  In order to reinforce to the children that this is a regular day of school, they must be in uniform.  (In the past, some children felt that being in bed with pajamas on was an appropriate way to attend a remote lesson.  We want them to know that this is not the demeanor to do schoolwork.)

Classes resume on Monday, January 10, 2022, for in-person instruction.  As always, do not send your child to school if they are sick.

I pray you remain safe.

God bless you and your children,

Mrs. DeLuca

Principal

 

Happy New Year and Return to Academy, Tomorrow, January 3, 2022

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Happy and Healthy New Year to you, your dear children, and families.  Thank you for your cards, wonderful, kind words and gifts and well wishes for me and my family.  May our Lord bless you abundantly with what you need.  This is my prayer for you and your families for this new year.  

As we pray that this pandemic would soon come to an end, unfortunately, the Omicron strand has invaded our world, and  we must be as vigilant as possible to keep our children safe and every one we come in contact with.  Therefore, as has been stressed the past two years and always, it is of the upmost importance that IF YOU CHILD IS ILL IN ANY WAY, HE/SHE MUST NOT COME TO SCHOOL.  

Please follow the following in order to keep all students and faculty safe:

  1.  STAY HOME IF YOU ARE SICK.
  2.  DO NOT COME TO SCHOOL IF YOU OR A HOUSEHOLD FAMILY MEMBER HAS PENDING COVID TEST RESULTS.
  3.  FOLLOW THE COVID SAFETY AND HEALTH PROTOCOLS INSTRUCTED TO YOU BY YOUR CHILD’S HOMEROOM TEACHER.
  4.  CONSULT YOUR HEALTHCARE PROVIDER REGARDING COVID TESTING AND VACCINES.
  5.  IN SCHOOL, STUDENTS MUST COME IN WITH THE DAILY HEALTH SCREENING FORM OR THEY WILL BE SENT HOME.
  6.  SOCIAL  DISTANCING MUST BE MAINTAINED AT ALL TIMES, 3 FT MINIMUM FOR CLASSROOMS, 6 FT ALL OTHER AREAS OF THE   BUILDING.
  7.  FACE COVERINGS AT ALL TIMES.  ALSO, MEDICAL MASKS WORK BETTER WITH THIS STRAND RATHER THAN CLOTH MASKS.
  8.  WE HAVE, AS ALWAYS SINCE COVID STARTED, A LIMITED VISITOR POLICY.
  9.  PLEASE REPORT TO US IMMEDIATELY POSITIVE CASES.
  10.  STUDENTS WHO CANNOT BE IN SCHOOL DUE TO COVID WILL REMAIN CONNECTED TO THE DAY’S LESSONS THROUGH REMOTE  INSTRUCTION IF THEY ARE WELL ENOUGH TO ATTEND.  IF THEY REMAIN IN CLASS THROUGH REMOTE INSTRUCTION, THEY WILL NOT BE MARKED ABSENT.  THIS IS POSSIBLE FOR ONLY COVID RELATED CASES.

Thank you for your cooperation which is most important at this time for all of us.

May our Lord bless and watch over all of us.

God bless,

Mrs. Frances DeLuca

Principal

We will do our very best, as we did last year to keep the children safe and still provide the best education they deserve.

God bless and watch over you,

Mrs. Frances DeLuca,

PRESS RELEASE: August 12, 2021

BROOKLYN AND QUEENS CATHOLIC SCHOOLS ANNOUNCE BACK TO SCHOOL COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOLS

The Office of the Superintendent of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn, which includes 69 elementary schools in Brooklyn and Queens, today has announced the COVID-19 safety protocols that will be in place when school opens on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.

In the absence of a mandate, the New York State Department of Health recommends school districts adopt universal indoor masking for all based on guidance from the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Therefore, Catholic Academies and Parish Schools in Brooklyn and Queens will require all students, faculty, and staff members to wear masks beginning on the first day of school.

In addition, school officials will continue to encourage vaccinations, social distancing, hand washing and hand hygiene, while maintaining the rigorous daily cleaning and sanitizing of facilities as well as enhanced ventilation. Parents will be reminded to keep their child home from school if they are sick, and their child will be required to receive medical clearance from a healthcare provider that they can safely return to in person instruction.

The Catholic Academies and Parish Schools will also continue to follow city and state guidelines regarding contact tracing, quarantine and isolation protocols.

“As the numbers of Coronavirus cases continue to spike in children, and the overall numbers of hospitalizations in New York City are on the rise, this is the most responsible approach to take when we begin the new school year. I know the return to these safety measures is not the situation parents, teachers or students were hoping to be the case in the 2021-2022 school year, but we cannot ignore the trends,” said Superintendent Dr. Thomas Chadzutko.

“Let us do our part from day one to prevent further increase of cases. If we are successful, as this academic year moves along, we will revisit these guidelines and adjust them accordingly. As much as we want a return to normalcy in our classrooms, we want our students, faculty, and staff to be safe,” continued Dr. Chadzutko.

“Looking at the trajectory of past pandemics, it seems that a virus such as this one does linger for some time even with the vaccination. I have received my vaccination and continue to encourage others to do so as well. It is our hope that the COVID-19 vaccines will help bring an

end to this terrible virus that has controlled our lives for much of the past year and a half,” said The Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn.

Catholic schools in Brooklyn and Queens, in adherence to strict guidelines, opened on time for the 2020-2021 school year, and were able to offer five day a week instruction. Enrollment increased in nearly 40% of the schools last year in grades K-8. To learn more about Catholic Schools in Brooklyn and Queens, visit catholicschoolsbq.org.
