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

Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

December 16, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

With much prayer and joy of being together again with your children in our academy, we have completed trimester 1 and have started trimester 2 this Monday.  We have seen a good adjustment with the children by the end of November.   The children have done very well in their report card grades.  Where trimester 1, for this year, due to many remote students returning to in-person instruction, was a review and reinforcement of the prior year, trimester 2 brings us to the full emersion into the curriculum for the year.  Therefore, continue to encourage your dear children to keep up their hard work.

With Omicron Covid in the rise in the city, and the constant rules changing from the State, I personally thank you for keeping your child at home when they are not well.  This is a must for the benefit of your child and other children in the class.  Please be vigilant during the holidays to avoid large crowds with the children and get them tested for Covid if they appear ill.

Christmas vacation begins of Wednesday, December 22, 2021, at 3:00 pm.  The academy will be closed, Thursday, December 23, 2021 to January 2, 2022.  We resume school of Monday, January 3, 2022,

On behalf of Fr. Tom, our pastor, Dr. Mangar, our chairperson, my faculty, staff and myself, I wish you a blessed Christmas and a New Year which will be full of good health, peace, joy, and prosperity.  

May our Lord protect and watch over you and your dear families.

Merry Christmas!

With love and prayers,

Mrs. Frances DeLuca
