Dear Parents,

The only constant during the coronavirus pandemic has been change. We have all adopted to meet the needs of our students and staff while ensuring safety for us all. This included classroom modifications to protect our students and staff as well as giving students and staff additional time out of the classroom after Christmas break. Hopefully this strategy has allowed time for potential symptoms of the virus to appear.

Moving forward, Jay (second grade) and Corinne Sirhal (PK-3) will be baptized on January 9th at 2:30 pm in the church. 

On Monday, January 11th at 10:30 am, James (kindergarten) and Leigh Falls (sixth grade) will be baptized at 10:30 am in our church. SRLA students will stand by to witness, socially distanced, of course. Please welcome our four newly baptized children to St. Rose of Lima Church. 

Important Items for next week: 

  • Lunch will be brought from home all next week
  • In-seat instruction will begin again on Monday
  • After-care will start again on Monday afternoon (please remember to let Danny know if your student will be staying)

My continued prayers for Catholic schools, students and educators and all that we have accomplished so far. Thank you parents for believing in us! I do see a glimmer of hope and a feeling of renewal of our devotion to working together to regain purpose and gratitude for what we may be called upon to do in the future.

Have a great weekend,
Principal Underwood

Dear Parents,

As the back to school date quickly approaches, there are a few things we as parents can do to help our children experience a successful return. Children spend so much time looking forward to the holidays that the transition back to the second trimester can be a somewhat depressing letdown for some of them. We can help ease the transition back to school for students who have trouble readjusting after a few weeks off by trying some of these ideas. 

Ready: Prepare your student for the return by discussing the schedule for the week of January 4-8. We will hold classes virtually and from 8:10-12:10 each day. Although we will have music for our on-line learners in the near future, that will not happen until the week of January 11, 2021. So that means that if you have a music period on your half-day schedule any day next week, you will not have a class that period.

Set: Have a dedicated work area set to go for Monday morning!

School supplies at the ready, devices charged, pads, pens, pencils ready, enjoy a healthy breakfast and a good night's sleep.

Go: Sign-in on time...between 8:10-8:20 am is perfect! Below you will find a special schedule for next week. You will not see every class every day but know that every class is seen the same amount of time over the course of our school year.

Everyone, please remain vigilant and do all that you can to protect yourself and those around you during this transition time.

 I send my best wishes to you and your family for a Happy New Year and look forward to seeing everyone either in-person or virtually on January 11th!!!

Sincerely,
Principal Underwood

Dear Parents,

Congress is moving closer to a deal on the next COVID-19 Relief package.

As Congress looks to be wrapping up deliberations this week on COVID-19 Relief, please let your members of Congress know that Catholic Schools should NOT be excluded from education relief! Nonpublic schools, including Catholic Schools, educate approximately 10% of ALL students in the U.S., many of whom are from struggling communities. 

Please ask Congress to include our students in COVID-19 Relief Aid using this link: 

 http://www.votervoice.net/Shares/BbCnSAsdACpJTAj6HbX7FAA  

This pandemic has seriously affected all students and families; please tell your Congressional Representatives that ALL STUDENTS need COVID-19 Relief, and they should not leave Catholic and other nonpublic school students out in the cold! 

Many thanks,

Tina Underwood

Dear Parents,

A major East Coast snowstorm is increasingly likely for Wednesday and Thursday of this week.

 Early preparation plans are based on the following information currently forecast by the National Weather Service.

I am releasing the schedules for an early dismissal on Wednesday and a delayed opening for Thursday morning based on the following information:

·     On Wednesday afternoon there is a 60 % chance of snow with 1-3" of snow expected.

·     On Wednesday evening the chance of snow increases to 80% for 8-12 inches of snow predicted.

·     Thursday morning travel may be restricted as well. 

Should school be cancelled for Thursday---We will have an old-fashioned Snow Day with no classes!!!

Special schedules are listed below.

 

Sincerely,

Principal Underwood
