COVID-19 Update

The document below is an updated plan for COVID-19 mitigation protocols that will exist beginning Monday, February 14th as we transition to a mask optional policy for the school. With the cooperation and collective efforts of all stakeholders we have been able to keep the school open over the past two years.

Transitioning to a mask optional status is not a decision that we make lightly, and we recognize that there will be people on both sides who may not be in favor of the new protocols and mitigation policies that accompany the mask optional status. However, after consultation with Father Brownholtz, we feel that these policies are what is best for the school, our students and school community.

We made this decision based on our current case counts, past case counts, local vaccination rates, and in consultation with the Bucks County Department of Health. It is important that you read the attached Health and Safety Plan. There are some revisions to past policies. Contact Tracing when a student is exposed in class is now back in the plan, but we will not reinstate mandatory quarantining for exposed students. This plan is different from our neighboring schools. Many have reinstated mandatory quarantine for exposed students. Each school community is different, and our plan to go mask optional should not be compared with neighboring schools.

2/22/22

On "Twosday", 2/22/22 we will celebrate this very unique date in history with several school wide activities.


Dress Down Day- Students are permitted to dress down in twos: two different shoes, socks, hair items, hats, or combination of clothes. It is sure to be a crazy looking twosday!


Charity Collection- We will be collecting two things that are made for each other, PB and J in place of the usual dollar we collect for Dress Down Days. We are asking each student to bring in a jar of peanut butter or jelly. All donations will go to Mary's Cupboard in Levittown.


Twosday Snacks- Special snacks for everyone!


2/22/22 at 2:22pm Celebration- it's a surprise!

DESIGNER HANDBAG BINGO

A huge shout out to our Handbag Bingo Committee: Nancy Patrick, Helene Crozier, Jodie McVan, Dorothy Aschenbrenner, Nicole Kloc, Sarah Urlich, Koren Wizeman, Anna Hysore, Bridget Karo and the night wouldn’t have been successful without Dave Crozier running the bingo board, Greg Ruppersburger calling our Bingo’s and Chris DiLeonardo and Dan Berard for selling those 50/50’s!
