July Updates

Good Afternoon,


While we do not have a great deal of new information for you this week, we want to keep you updated and communicate as best as we are able.


This week, our teachers have spent time in the building working on their classrooms. The students' desks will be correctly socially distanced in the rooms. The rooms looks wonderful. It is amazing the amount of creativity and passion that the teachers have to continue to provide a rich educational and faith based experience for you children with all of the obstacles of COVID-19.


On another positive note, we will be live streaming the Wednesday morning all school liturgy into our classrooms. However, Fr. Joe and Fr. Michael are dedicated to help bring cohorts into the church for the masses as well. All of our homeroom teachers will also be trained as Eucharistic ministers so that if the cohort is live streaming the mass, Fr. Joe and Fr. Michael will visit the classrooms and give the teachers the consecrated hosts so they will be able to distribute communion.


We continue to place information on the COVID-19 page on our website.

We are working on providing a sign up document for you on August 19, 2020. On August 20, 2020, students with the last names of A-L will come from 8-10 a.m. and students with the last names of M-Z will come from 11:00-1:00 p.m.

We will continue with our normal traffic pattern for morning drop off. Because we will be using different doors, it will be extremely important to adhere to the traffic patterns. If you have child/ren with different drop off times, you may park in front of the church.


We will also be using the text messaging system for inclement weather, please be sure that we have your correct cell phone number on file. This is the number you filled out online in March. If it has changed, please let Mrs. Ward know.


We continue to ask for your patience as we maneuver this very new normal ourselves. We know there will be glitches.


Please call us with any questions.

Uniforms

We will be sending quite a bit of time in our classroom cohort. Due to the nature of this situation, we have agreed to allow the children to wear their gym uniforms throughout the school year. However, if you have already purchased the uniform, your child may wear that as well. We will be returning to the uniform policy when COVID-19 passes. You may purchase your uniform at the link below and our code is S0494.
