A Message From Mrs. Woodman

Dear Parents,


Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I look forward to sharing this space with you each month, and wanted to take this opportunity to offer a few words as we prepare to begin a new school year!


We have so much to be excited about! For starters, our enrollment is strong! We will be welcoming 525 students to learn with us each day! Almost all of our staff is returning, too, and we are happy to welcome a few new faces to join us. Probably the most noticeable new thing this school year is our newly constructed front entrance! Thanks to your charitable financial support through our fundraisers and Celebration 2021, as well as the generous support of the St. Hilary Parish Foundation, we now have a more secure front entrance and office / reception area! Included in this renovation was the creation of a much-needed conference room for meetings, a faculty work space and mail area, and a new space dedicated to intervention services for our students with special learning needs. We are thrilled to be able to have these new areas as part of our school! We are still getting settled inside, but you can check out a photo of our new entrance below!


After successfully completing the most unusual school year in history, and as we move forward with hope, we are reminded that there are some things we continue to live with as we ease out of the pandemic. With that in mind, we appreciate your patience as we straddle a line somewhere between COVID and normal. We know what is going on "in the real world" and that restrictions are being lifted. However, we are in the unique situation of having a population within our building that is still largely unvaccinated, so for now, our protocols will continue to err on the side of caution to protect the children we serve. Additionally, with unknowns still lingering, we encourage every family to have contingency plans for all aspects of this school year.


Please know that in all we do and in every decision we make, we have the best interests of your child and every St. Hilary student at heart. We know there will be decisions we will have to make during the course of this year that not everyone will agree with. We know there will be questions that will arise. We are here to answer your questions and address your concerns as best we can. All we ask is that you show us the same degree of politeness and respect when communicating with us as you would expect of us. Stress levels have been high since March 2020, and we will be able to work together much better if we start from a point of kindness and respect.


Additionally, we all need to continue to be cheerleaders for our school, for one another, and especially for our students. We need you to be positive in your interactions with your children and on social media. Your support is vital. We are aware that there are many social and cultural issues at the forefront right now, and divisiveness is at a heightened level due to current events in our world. While our teachers may discuss current events in factual terms as appropriate during lessons, we will not engage in opinionated rhetoric related to any such issue in our school. We ask that you support us in reinforcing this with your children at home.


This year will be my fourth as principal and Mrs. Alexander's fourth as assistant principal. As St. Hilary School alumni, we are so proud to continue serving the school we once attended. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work with you and your children. Together with our dedicated staff and you, our amazing school families, we hope to continue our school's long tradition of excellence as we maintain and challenge our high standards for the future.


Thank you for entrusting your children to us. On behalf of the entire faculty and staff, we look forward to partnering with you to make this a successful school year!


Go Sabers!


Mrs. Woodman

Important Tips for Returning to School During COVID-19

Below are some tips for families as we return to school during the COVID-19 pandemic.


1. Every household must have a thermometer to check students’ temperatures before leaving home in the morning. Any student with a temperature above 100◦F must not come to school and will be sent home if this temperature level occurs at school. Students will be checked upon arrival and during the school day. Assessment of temperature and symptoms at home is extremely important to avoid last minute changes of plans for parents if students are found to have a fever or symptoms upon arrival at school.


2. We will return to having one clinic this year. As much as possible, minor needs such as Bandaids will be managed in the classroom. We need your help in reinforcing with your child that trips to the clinic should be reserved for when a child is truly not feeling well – not things such as chapped lips, dry skin, and other minor issues that can be addressed at home.


3. Although in general masks are optional, every student will need to wear a mask when entering and exiting the building, in hallways and common areas, and in settings where at least 3 feet distance cannot be maintained.

Specifically:


Masks will be required in the following situations:


  • When riding buses to and from school or for field trips;
  • Entering and exiting the school building;
  • In hallways and during transitions between classes; and
  • In settings, situations and spaces when a distance of 3 feet or more cannot be maintained.


Masks will be optional, however, strongly encouraged especially for unvaccinated students in the following situations:


  • When seated at least 3 feet from another student
  • While eating or drinking
  • While at recess
  • While in Physical Education class


Please make sure your child has enough masks to wear a clean mask each day. During warm, humid weather, you may want to send several masks in case your child needs to change during the day. A spare mask should be kept in the student’s backpack at all times. Please make sure your child’s name is on each mask either with a Sharpie or with labeling tape that won’t wash or wear off.


4. The school will provide a face shield for each student in grades K-2 and by individual request in other grades. It is the responsibility of parents to provide face masks. Lanyards will be available to help contain masks while eating or drinking.


6. Our attendance policy has been adjusted in consideration of COVID-19. Students may not return to school until they are symptom free for a full 48 hours (2 days) without fever reducing medication (reduced from 72 hours symptom free) OR they have a negative COVID-19 test (must provide test results) OR they have a note from the attending physician stating that symptoms are not the result of COVID-19. There is no incentive to come to school when ill. The perfect attendance award has been eliminated. The policy on excessive absence will be reviewed and applied on a case-by-case basis during the duration of COVID-19.


7. Each student, including Kindergarten students, should bring his/her own individual snack to school each day. Birthday and other treats must be factory sealed or come from a commercial bakery - they cannot be homemade.


8. Each student MUST bring a water bottle to school each day. Water fountains are turned off due to COVID-19. Bottle filler fountains are available for students to refill water bottles, but we suggest sending enough water to get through the day.


9. Students having gym class on a particular day will come to school in gym clothes and remain in gym clothes for the school day. Black “gym pants” may be worn during colder weather and will soon be available to order through our school uniform supplier. This will eliminate the need for students to gather in locker rooms to change clothes.


10. A SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT SHOES FOR KINDERGARTENERS AND FIRST GRADERS: If your child does not yet know how to tie his or her own shoes, he or she MUST wear Velcro strap shoes to school. Due to COVID-19, school staff will not be able to assist with tying shoes. Thank you for your cooperation.


11. Parents and visitors will have very limited access to the school building and every effort will be made to conduct business in a contact-free / virtual manner when possible.


12. If a lunch or other forgotten item needs to be dropped off, please ring the bell at the main entrance door, let the secretaries know what you are dropping off and for whom, and leave the item – clearly labeled with the student’s name and room number or teacher – in the drop-off bin. A staff member will retrieve the item and get it to the student.


13. If a student needs to be picked up for an appointment or is ill and being picked up to go home, please pull up to the Moorfield Road door, call the school office at 330-867-8720, and your child will be signed out with your permission and released to your car under staff supervision.


14. In the extenuating circumstance that a parent would need to enter the building, please note that masks are required for all visitors, regardless of vaccination status.


15. Finally, we ask for your patience as we continue to receive and provide updated information while this situation evolves. Please understand that while many businesses and offices across the country are still not open and have no definite plans to return in person, we are again being asked to safely bring 525 students and over 80 staff members into our building every day beginning in one week, and are working tirelessly to do so. We ask that you trust us and know that we have the best interests of every student in mind as we plan for our return to school. Thank you for respecting our knowledge of the many facts and nuances behind each and every decision we make.

Additional information can be found on our COVID-19 webpage and in our School Handbook COVID-19 Appendix.

Back-to-School Forms

BACK-TO-SCHOOL FORMS
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT MEDIA RELEASE FORM

Back-to-School forms for 2021-2022 have been posted in the Red Folder on our school website, under Forms and Documents. Please refer to this page for the list of necessary forms and the instructions for completing and correctly submitting them. PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO ENSURE THAT YOUR FORMS ARE RECEIVED. PLEASE DO NOT SIMPLY EMAIL FORMS TO THE SCHOOL OFFICE OR YOUR CHILD'S TEACHER - EACH FORM HAS A DESIGNATED PERSON / PLACE TO SUBMIT IT. You may begin submitting forms now. ***Families with custody changes, it is very important that you complete and return the Custody Form.***


***Additionally, we need to make you aware of the implications of your consent or lack of consent on the Media Release form completed on Gradelink at the time of registration / re-registration of your child.*** Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation, we will be using live streaming as a tool to gather together as a school community in situations where we will not be able to have large in-person events. We will use live streaming only when we want to gather our community for prayer, for events where parents would normally be invited, and as a way to connect our community. When a student appears in a live stream, we will not identify the student by his or her full name so as to protect his or her identity. Any live stream with students on camera will only be viewable live and will not be recorded or available after the live stream is over. This will be to more readily ensure that the live image does not stay as something that can be downloaded. A live stream will simply be a way to “attend” as the event occurs, not to view it later.


Having said this, for our weekly school Mass, which will be our most frequent live streamed event, and for any other live streamed events, only students whose parents have given consent on the Media Release form on Gradelink will be able to participate and appear on camera. To be clear, that means that if you do not give us permission to have your child participate as part of live streamed events, he or she will be unable to be chosen to sing or to read at school Mass. He or she will also be unable to participate in events including but not limited to the spelling and geography bees, leading school assemblies as a speaker or cheerleader, performances such as the kindergarten or 1st grade shows or any sort of theater, the Halloween parade, shadow stations, the Mime of the Passion, or any of the other times we would choose to live stream. This would be done not to exclude any student, but to respect parents’ wishes. Similarly, if you have consented on this form, you now need to understand the additional implications of your consent for your child if he or she participates in an event that is live streamed.


IMPORTANT! Whatever choice of consent or lack of consent you have indicated on the Media Release form on Gradelink will apply to live streamed events as indicated above, unless we hear otherwise from you. You may change your consent at any time, even during the school year and even for only a particular event, by emailing Mrs. Smith at msmith@st-hilary.org.

Arrival & Dismissal

ARRIVAL TIME EXPECTATION BEGINS AUGUST 23

Beginning August 23, it is our expectation that students will arrive by 8:20 a.m. This bell signals our morning arrival time, at which time students begin to prepare for the day. (Please note that during COVID-19, students not attending morning Latchkey should arrive no earlier than 8:00 a.m. as we cannot allow students to congregate outside the building, in the hallways, or in the Multi-Purpose Room.) The 8:30 a.m. bell is not intended to provide a ten-minute grace period after the 8:20 a.m. arrival bell, but signifies the point at which students are marked tardy. Please help your child prepare for the school day in a stress-free manner by ensuring that he or she arrives at school by 8:20 a.m. each day.



ARRIVAL AND DISMISSAL STARTING AUGUST 23


Arrival:

  • Students not attending morning Latchkey should arrive no earlier than 8:00 a.m.
  • Students will be scanned for temperature and screened for symptoms upon arrival before entering the building – those with a temperature over 100°F or COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted to enter.
  • All students in every grade must wear a mask to enter the building.
  • Students will report directly to classrooms, not to Multi-Purpose Room.
  • Once in classrooms, masks will be optional.



Dismissal:

  • In order to ensure social distancing during dismissal, we will follow a staggered dismissal schedule as follows:


2:50 pm - Kindergarten students and their siblings


Non-Kindergarten Families Alphabetically by Last Name:

2:55 pm - Last names S-Z

3:00 pm - Last names H-R

3:05 pm - Last names G-M

3:10 pm - Last names A-F


  • Students will not be released until their designated time, so it is important that you make every effort to arrive as close to that time as possible, rather than lining up far in advance. We also ask for your cooperation in picking up your child on time, or calling the office in advance if you will be a few minutes late. In addition, we ask that the family last name of students being picked up be prominently displayed in the passenger side window of each car to help us efficiently match students with cars.


  • If you prefer not to go through the car line, you may park in the far back parking lot and stand in the red “box” painted on the parking lot where you can safely reunite with your child.


  • All students in every grade must wear a mask to exit the building.


  • Students should go directly to car or bus – no loitering in hallways, restrooms, visiting other rooms.


Latchkey:

  • Morning Latchkey will be available beginning at 6:50 a.m. Students being dropped off for morning Latchkey will be dropped off at the Art Room Door - PLEASE NOTE THIS CHANGE FROM THE MAIN ENTRANCE!
  • Afternoon Latchkey will be available until 6:00 p.m. Students being picked up from evening Latchkey will be picked up at the Art Room Door - PLEASE NOTE THIS CHANGE FROM THE MAIN ENTRANCE!
  • Students attending either session of Latchkey will have temperatures checked upon arrival.



Busing:

Four districts provide bus transportation for our students who reside in those districts: Copley-Fairlawn, Highland, Revere, and Woodridge. We anticipate that when the districts are providing in-person instruction and transportation for their own students, they will provide transportation for St. Hilary School students as well. If any of these districts move to online learning at any time, there is the potential that bus transportation for St. Hilary School students who ride the affected district’s bus may be lost. We encourage all families to have an alternate transportation plan in place as this could happen without warning. For more information, you may contact the transportation departments listed below:


Copley-Fairlawn: 330-664-4820
Highland: 330-239-1901, ext. 1235
Revere: 330-523-3118 or 3119
Woodridge: 330-928-6312

Please also visit our Bus Transportation page on the school website.

Help Wanted

COVID CREW MEMBERS NEEDED

A few more helping hands are needed to join our COVID Crew. Members of this crew work from 7:55 to 9:00 am checking student temperatures at drop-off, followed by sanitizing of highly-touched surfaces and other light duties / errands. This is a paid position and crew members are scheduled according to their availability. If you are interested, please contact Brittany Root at root_brittany@hotmail.com.


HOT LUNCH HELP NEEDED

Our Hot Lunch program is in need of volunteers to fill open spots to ensure we can offer Hot Lunch every day. If you can help, please email Hot Lunch Coordinator Becky Vieltorf at bvieltorf@st-hilary.org with your availability.


PLAYGROUND MONITORS NEEDED

Looking for a fun way to be involved at school, see your child during the school day, get some fresh air, and make some extra money? Consider being a playground monitor! Help is needed for the 2021-2022 school year in order to ensure that our students are properly supervised during recess. Monitors work just a couple of hours each day, so this is the perfect part-time job for those with limited time! If you are interested in learning more, please contact Cassie Samaan at csamaan@st-hilary.org.


SUBSTITUTE TEACHERS NEEDED

We are always in need of individuals to serve as substitute teachers. A summary of requirements would include the following: a bachelor's degree in any subject, Virtus training, a background check including fingerprinting, and a substitute teaching certificate.

Growing Together in Faith

FIRST SCHOOL MASS NEXT FRIDAY, AUGUST 27

Our first school Mass for the 2021-2022 school year will be NEXT FRIDAY, August 27 at 9:30 am. The school Mass will be planned by our faculty, and will be live streamed and available to view at http://sthilarychurch.org/live/. You will be able to view all live streamed Masses through this site. A copy of this year’s liturgy schedule can be found in the Forms and Documents section under the Red Folder on the school website. Masses are also posted on the school Google calendar, with the grade level planning the Mass listed.


We will continue to celebrate Mass together each week and on holy days. Students will attend school Mass on a rotation with other select grade levels (not the whole school). Only parents / grandparents of the participating class may attend Mass in person, and must sit in the back of the Church away from students. Masses will be live streamed and available for all to watch, and students not attending Mass in person will watch live streamed Mass from their classrooms. Eucharistic ministers will come to the classrooms to distribute Holy Communion. We will handle other religious services and events in a similar way.

Reminders

ROOM MOM MEETING AUGUST 30 VIA ZOOM

There will be a meeting for all Room Moms on August 30 at 10:00 a.m. via Zoom. Room Moms for each classroom have been notified.


SCHOOL PICTURE DAY SEPTEMBER 1

PLEASE NOTE IMPORTANT CHANGES FROM PAST YEARS

School pictures will be taken on September 1. Students should dress up for pictures. No jeans, T-shirts or tennis shoes (except kindergarteners). Lifetouch made some changes last year that remain in effect:


  • Only those students and staff members who are photographed on September 1 will appear both in class composite photos and in the yearbook. Those having photos taken on retake day (October 14) will appear in the yearbook, but not in class composites.


  • Lifetouch has also streamlined photo packages, and to eliminate handling of paper order forms, checks, and cash, we are using an online-only ordering system. To view the Lifetouch packages and place an order, please go to www.mylifetouch.com and enter Picture Day ID code EVTPWF4HH. Questions about ordering school pictures should be directed to Lifetouch via their website linked above.


CURRICULUM NIGHTS SEPTEMBER 1 & 2 - NOTE NEW SHORTER TIME FRAME

Please join us for our Curriculum Nights on Wednesday, September 1 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for grades 6-8, and Thursday, September 2 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. for grades K-5. Due to COVID-19, we will not begin in Horning Hall as we traditionally do. Parents should report directly to classrooms to begin the evening.


  • These evenings are intended as informational events for parents only.
  • For grades K-5, there will be three 15-minute sessions in each classroom to accommodate parents with multiple children going to more than one classroom.
  • For grades 6-8, the parents will follow the students’ schedules, with each “period” lasting 7-8 minutes.
  • Changes from one session to the next will be announced over the PA system.

This would be done not to exclude any student, but to respect parents’ wishes. Similarly, if you have consented on this form, you now need to understand the additional implications of your consent for your child if he or she participates in an event that is live streamed.
