Important News From the Superintendent

BROOKLYN AND QUEENS CATHOLIC SCHOOLS AND ACADEMIES TO CONTINUE IN-PERSON LEARNING
Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, the Superintendent of Catholic Schools for Brooklyn and Queens, has announced that all 69 schools and academies will remain open and continue to provide in-person learning, in spite of the decision made to close New York City public schools indefinitely starting tomorrow.
“I am frustrated that the Mayor’s announcement was made as Catholic schools and academies throughout Brooklyn and Queens were dismissing our students. I want to make it clear to parents, teachers, staff, and students that the Mayor’s announcement only pertains to New York City public schools, and our schools will be open tomorrow. We have worked tirelessly to ensure that our school community remains safe for everyone, and we will continue to ensure strict compliance with all health and safety protocols,” said Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, Superintendent of Catholic Schools ~ Office of Support Services.
Catholic schools in the Diocese in Brooklyn and Queens have provided safe, five days a week in-person learning since beginning this school year, as scheduled, on September 9. The Superintendent, along with the Superintendent of the Archdiocese of New York, has received confirmation from the New York City Department of Education’s Office of Non-Public Schools that they will maintain entitled services for Catholic school students, including school nurses, transportation, and food.
         Catholic Academies and Parish Schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn have successfully operated for more than two months due to the strict adherence to the important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission, including maintaining physical distance, wearing a face covering, practicing healthy hand hygiene, and staying home if sick. The schools and academies of the Diocese of Brooklyn continue to work with New York State and City Department of Health officials on a regular basis to maintain the safety of all of our students, faculty, and staff.

Important Announcement from the Diocese

Dear Parents/Gurdians,
By now you have all heard the Mayor’s statements regarding the closing of the public schools in New York City. While the Mayor is focusing on the New York City Schools, we are confident at this time that our Catholic Academies and Parish Schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn will  remain open. We are already working to ensure that the essential services of transportation, food and nursing are in place in the event that the public schools close.
 
We continue to work to ensure that health and safety of everyone in our communities is a priority and we will continue to provide a safe and caring environment.
 
Please know that we will never compromise the health and safety of our faculty, staff and students.
 
We will update you as new information is made available to us.
 

Sincerely,

Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, Superintendent of Schools

Your child’s name will appear at the top of the page. Along the menu bar, locate the Student Tab and use the drop down button to locate the Report Card Tab – click on it. Below you will see the most recent dates of the Progress Report / Report Card. Click on the Progress Report.

The Progress Report will appear after you click on the option. Please remember to confirm that you have viewed the Progress Report. If you cannot view Progress Report there is another option on the right hand side – ‘view in a new window’ click on it.
