We Live the Word!

From the Principal's Desk

Dear FJVD Families,

We have now completed our third week of full, in-person learning! There have certainly been challenges and bumps along the way, but we're grateful for the dedication of our staff, the understanding of our parents, and the joy of our students!

This week we:

  • Continued learning inside the building, outside the building, and from home.
  • Learned about social emotional growth and relaxation techniques from our school counselor, Mrs. Johnstone.
  • Held our virtual morning prayer service live on Youtube each day!
  • Held our first PTO meeting of the year! Thank you to all who were able to attend.
  • And much, much more! See the photos below!

I want to once again thank you for adhering closely to our safety protocols and procedures throughout the week, including social distancing, wearing masks, and completing our screening tool. These tasks are not always easy, but we all play an important role in keeping our community safe! With this in mind, please do not congregate in large groups after dismissal.

Probable Cases & Testing Procedures: The Department of Health has released additional resources for families regarding how to proceed if your child has symptoms at home or becomes ill at school. You can find the RIDOH Resources for Families here. Please note, if your child is experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 that indicate a probable case, please call 844-857-1814 from 7:30am-9:30pm seven days a week schedule a test through the K-12 Testing Network. You should also notify the school as soon as possible.

If your child is experiencing symptoms and is being tested, two tests will be conducted at the K-12 testing site - a rapid test with results within 24 hours, and a PCR test with results within 48 hours. Please note, students are not permitted to return to school until both tests are negative and symptoms have resolved. In addition, families must complete the After Illness Return Attestation Form which can also be found on the homepage of our school website under "Important Links."

FJVD Spirit Wear: The PTO is thrilled to launch a new line of FJVD Spirit Wear!

Items include: hoodies, quarter-zip tops, vests, beanies, hats, jackets, and much, much more!

2019-2020 Yearbooks: Our 2019/2020 yearbooks have arrived! It was certainly a year to remember! If you ordered a yearbook for your child last year, it will be sent home with them this week. We do have a few extra soft cover yearbooks for sale on a first come first serve basis. The cost is $35.00. Please email Mrs. Marra if you would like to purchase a remaining yearbook.

Flu Clinic: Father Doyle will be hosting our annual flu clinic on October 15th. Additional precautions are being taken to ensure a safe experience for all who attend. Please see the flyer attached under Forms and Important Documents for more information. Thank you!

Have a great weekend everyone! God bless and Go Saints!

Aluminum Can Tab Collection

What: Aluminum can tabs are being collected

Why: To support the Ronald McDonald House in Providence

How can you help? Save can tabs and send them in to Mr. Godin’s room.

Bottle Cap Drive

We’re excited to share that our school is part of the Coca-Cola Give program. This provides new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students. The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply send in bottle caps or product codes from boxes of beverages and our school receives a donation.

All caps and codes should be sent to Mr. Godin. Codes will be entered on one account to gain larger and quicker donations.

Thank you!
