Letter to Parents/Guardians Regarding Opening School Information

 
 
August 16, 2021 
 
Dear Parents/Guardians:
 
In-person instruction for all classes will begin for Grades K through 8 on Wednesday, September 8. The children from grades 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 are asked to assemble in the schoolyard on 114th Street.  If it rains, they will enter the academy through the doors on 114th Street and assemble in our auditorium.  Grades K, 1 and 2 are asked to line up in the front of the building.  
 
The academy class day, for the first few days of school, begins at 8:00 a.m. till 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday , September 8, Thursday, September 9, and Friday, September 10.   Beginning Monday, September 13, the class day will run from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  The Extended Day Program will begin on Monday, September 13.  The extended day program will be in the auditorium where students may be kept together by grades.
 
 A separate letter is being mailed to the parents of any Pre-K or Kindergarten child. It will state the class assignment as well as the times for Parent Orientation and when the academy class will begin for the children.
 
This year we have been approved for two classes of Universal Pre-K 3 and two classes of Universal Pre-K 4; therefore, if you have a child who is either enrolled already with us or wants to enroll in Pre-K 3 or Pre-K4, please register at MySchools.nyc and click on ‘in district’ to register for our free UPK program. 
 
All protocols of safety for COVID 19 will be used as was last year.  The children will wear masks and have frequent mask breaks.  Each child will be three feet apart in the classrooms and six feet in the halls.  The building will be fogged for disinfection daily, and all custodians will constantly clean bathrooms, doorknobs, banisters, etc.  We will again use four entrances and exists as last year.  Grades Pre-K and K enter through the front of the building, right door, ground level.  Grades 1 and 2 enter through the main entrance in the front, up the stairs.  Grades 3, 4, and 5 enter from the back of the school building, facing the building, the right-side door to the entrance of the building. Grades 6, 7, and 8 enter from the back of the school building, facing the building, the left-side door to the entrance of the building.
 
 Daily health screening forms will be required as they were done daily last year for all students, faculty, and staff.  Students will remain in their cohort restricting movement in the building only for specials and lunch.  Air purifiers and hand sanitizers are available in each room.  All visitors are restricted, and we ask, for the safety of the children, to refrain from entering the academy while the children are in the building.  ALSO, AS ALWAYS, FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL CHILDREN, IF YOUR CHILD IS NOT WELL, PLEASE DO NOT SEND THEM TO SCHOOL. 
 
May we please remind you that the tuition pre-payment, due by August 15, should be mailed to the academy. Please make sure that your account is up to date (registration fees, re-registration fees, and account balances are paid). Your child will not be admitted to class on September 8 if your account is not current. If you have a large outstanding balance from the Extended Day Program, your child will not be allowed to enter the program until this balance is cleared. 
 
The week of August 23, letters informing you of your child’s homeroom and teacher will be mailed to your home.  The placement of your child was based on the recommendation of your child’s prior year teacher as well as your child’s strengths, weaknesses and their particular need for a specific homeroom teacher. Therefore, we ask that you do not make requests to change these assignments.
 
 We look forward to the beginning of another productive and blessed year at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy for you and your child/children.
 
 Sincerely In Christ,
 
 
 Mrs. Frances DeLuca
 Principal

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.
