Dear Parents and Guardians,
We have just completed the first month of the new academic year. It has been a totally different beginning for so many. There are some children that have fully returned to the classroom setting, other children that have opted for remote learning and still others that have been afforded a hybrid model. No matter what type of classroom setting your son or daughter is participating in, they have returned to their Catholic Academy or Parish School.
As you know, the re-opening of the Catholic Academy and Parish School was not an easy feat. One thing for sure, the Pastors, Principals, Board of Directors, Faculty, and Staff worked tirelessly during the summer months of July and August, in preparation for school opening. On September 9, 2020, you witnessed first-hand all of the extraordinary efforts, put into place, to keep your child(ren) safe.
Efforts to maintain a safe and healthy environment are essential, as we now move into the month of October. In is imperative that everyone work together to ensure that the Core 4 remain in place, in each and every Catholic Academy and Parish School, within the Diocese of Brooklyn.
- Social Distancing
- Wearing Masks
- Stay Home if Sick
- Healthy Hygiene – Washing of the Hands
In addition, we ask that you also be mindful of the following:
- Completing of the Daily Health Questionnaire
- Daily Temperature Check
It is very important for you to keep your child(ren) home, if they are sick, or if you answer “yes” to any of the questions on the daily health questionnaire. This action will continue to keep everyone within the Catholic Academy/Parish School communities safe and healthy.
As we begin the month of October, one which is dedicated to the Rosary and our Blessed Mother, let us together pray for peace, health and safety:
O God, whose only-begotten Son, by His life, death, and resurrection, has purchased for us the rewards of eternal salvation; grant we beseech Thee, that meditating upon these mysteries of the most holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we may imitate what they contain and obtain what they promise.
Let us continue to pray for each other and for all of our children.
