HFRCS Newsletter SY2021-2022

January 4, 2022 - Vol.1 Issue 20

From the Principal's Office

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to 2022! We are pleased to be back in school today after yesterday’s unexpected snow day with no snow! Returning to a regular schedule is sometimes very helpful after a long break!

As we navigate through these weeks of increased spread and positive cases, please continue to be proactive and monitor your child’s health each morning and do not send your child to school if they are sick. Please keep your child home if you are waiting for test results. If you have not completed the consent form to have your child tested, the form is attached to this newsletter. All safety protocols remain intact: masking, keeping as socially distant as possible, cleaning and sanitizing, and health monitoring. As always, we are working to keep our learning environment as safe as possible for all students, teachers, and staff, so that in person instruction is not interrupted.

If you have any COVID questions or require a test for your child, please contact Mrs. Barbara McKnight, 215-269-9604 or email her at hfrcs.nurse@hfrcs.org

May God bless our school community in this New Year!

Sincerely Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Haggerty

Lunch Menu Change & Feb 2022 Lunch Order

Please take note of the updated lunch menu for Jan 6: cheese pizza, broccoli, sunset sip vegetable juice, and cherry craisins. If you ordered lunch for Jan 6 but prefer not to have the updated menu, please pack lunch accordingly. Check the school website for the latest menu.

February lunch order is due today, Jan 4:

  • YEAR-LONG LUNCH ORDERS: If you already indicated in previous online orders that your child will receive lunch for the rest of the school year, there is no need to complete the form again.
  • MILK ONLY ORDERS: We must know your child's milk order by the deadline since we have to place the milk order separately with NDS. We are unable to provide milk for your child if there is no order. Please send in the payment for milk for the month of February.
