PreK For All
Parent Verification Week
November 30th -December 4th
Parents of students who are in the PreK For All Program are requested to sign in and sign out each day this week. Ms. McGarry will be at the entrance of the Church with Mr. Woods with sign in sheets. Please take a moment to sign your child in for this week only and then sign out at the end of the day.
All students will enter through the Church doors this week so that this information may be collected.
If grandparents etc. are dropping off/picking students they can sign in for the parent. This is only for this week as data must be collected for the annual BEDS (Basic Education Data System).
PreK For All Students that are remote are asked to be present each day this week. The teacher will be taking attendance at the remote classes that are held daily.
Exhaust Fan Installation in Classrooms
On Sunday November 30th exhaust fans were installed in all the classrooms. These fans were installed at the recommendation of the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) for complete air exchange in school classrooms. Reminder sweaters are a must this year as doors and windows must be open a little to have complete air exchange. Please make sure if your child loses things that their names are in the sweaters.
Catapult Learning Extended Day
This a free resource for students who are experiencing Academic difficulties in grades K-8 or who wish to have an added push.
As you see from the information below there are only 31 students enrolled.
If you need more information please contact either Alba or Mr. Guzman and we will have Catapult Learning contact you.
As of today, there are 31 students registered from your school. Registration remains open and students are grouped as they enroll. A summary sheet is attached containing each student with their registration status and Title I eligibility.
Our Parent Workshop Series has been very successful so far and is continuing through the next couple of weeks. Parents can sign up for upcoming workshops at this link. Please feel free to forward it to your parents.
Parent Program Orientations
We held parent orientations in each borough over the past two weeks with great parent participation and excitement.
The menu for December is available for parents. Please e-mail Mr. Woods at email@example.com and the menu will be scanned and forwarded to you.
As you may know Washington Heights (below 190th Street) and the Fordham Road area of the Bronx were declared Yellow zones by the New York State Health Department.
What does this mean for Catholic Schools?
As per Governor Cuomo schools would be mandated to have 20% of the staff/children tested once a week who are in - person learners. This will all be arranged to be done in school.
The test is only administered to children/staff who are 6 years old and above and is a modified test wherein a Q-tip is used to swab the nose.
Should we become a yellow zone we will need to have this done and more information will be sent home along with permission slips. If a parent refuses to have their child tested then the child will have to go on remote learning module for the remainder of the school year.
Mr. Woods will have a general Zoom parent meeting should this occur to speak to the parents directly.
As for now continued diligence of mask wearing, spacing yourself 6 feet away from each other and constant hand washing along with good nutrition.
