GREEN ENVELOPE
Update for the SRLA Community
 
 
Welcome Back to SRLA
 
Dear Families,
 
We hope you had a nice Christmas and New Year break.
 
Please remember to complete the required COVID-19 questionnaire prior to returning to school in person on Monday. The questionnaire was emailed to everyone this week, and it can also be accessed here. You may complete it online or print a hard copy to fill out and return to the office.
 
With the exciting news in December of two approved COVID-19 vaccines we remain hopeful that a tide will turn in this pandemic. However, we also need to remember to stay vigilant about protecting ourselves with frequent hand-washing, wearing our masks, and social distancing.
 
Though the holidays were different this year, we hope you had a restful and peaceful break. We'll see you all again--in the classrooms or on the computer screens--on Monday!

ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
Update: SRLA Masks/Magnets
Happy New Year, SRLA Families!
 
The masks and magnet orders will be distributed in school on January 11th. If you would like your order in advance, please email Margie Naughton (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) to arrange a pick-up from her porch in South Orange. 
 
Unfortunately, the mask factory was temporarily closed due to Covid. Due to this delay everyone who paid will be receiving additional masks (example: if you ordered 2 masks, you will be receiving 4 masks). Also, please note that the deadline for placing an order has passed--we are no longer accepting orders at this time.
 
For any questions, please contact Margie at the email above.
 
Thank you, SRLA Families!
Teacher Christmas Fund Update
 
Thank you to all our families who so generously donated to our annual Teacher Christmas Fund. Because of your kind-hearted generosity, we were able to give our teachers a wonderful Christmas gift and new SRLA monogrammed face masks that we presented to them before the Christmas break.  
 
Our deeply touched and grateful teachers enjoyed a delicious lunch—a to-go lunch this year—where we had the opportunity to thank them for their dedication to our students and our school. Especially this year with so much change and uncertainty, it was wonderful to be able to give back to our teachers and let them know how much we appreciate them. 
 
On behalf of the H.S.A, and all our staff here at St. Rose, THANK YOU for your participation and support. 
 
-The H.S.A.
 
In Case You Missed It!

Enjoy the show!
