School Drop-off Protocol

Please see the link below and complete the following COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire if you have not done so already.

Click link below:

COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire

Failure to do so will result in your student not being able to gain entry until we contact you and get a completed form.

Note that the first two weeks of school, (weather permitting) students will line up with their homerooms in the parking lot.

The students will then proceed to the homeroom with their homeroom teacher.

Please follow the procedure for drop-off, and refer to the accompanying diagram.

See attached for printable versions of diagrams.

Diagram One

Diagram Two

PreK 3 and PreK 4:

Will enter and exit the school through the playground door. Pre-school parents who want to walk their kids to the playground door should park in the back part of the parking lot. From there, please walk kids to the playground door only. 

Kindergarten-Grade 4:

Will enter and exit through the Devine Center door.

The Devine Center is situated between the church and the school.

Grade 5-Grade 8:

Will enter and exit through the school's main door (Short Hills Ave).

Pick-Up via Car Line

Please refer to this diagram that details the car line and afterschool pick-up. The diagram will soon be posted on the SRLA website. For returning families, the main change to this year is that there will need to be THREE lines formed in the parking lot for car line.

COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire Clarification

Parents,

There have been some questions about the COVID questionnaire that was sent out on Monday 8/30. In an effort to clarify the instructions, please take note:

Questions 6 & 7 must be filled out with your child's name. If you have more than one child attending St. Rose, the oldest child's name & grade should be used here.

Questions 8 & 9 - If you have additional children attending St Rose, please put their name & grade here, one per question. If you do not have an additional child at the school, these may be left blank.

Question 14 - Due to the way the questionnaire was designed this time, question 14 must be completed. If you answered "no" to question 13, just enter the date you are completing the questionnaire.

Please note: if you do not plan to travel this last weekend of summer, the questionnaire may be filled out at any time. However, it must be completed and submitted prior to your child(ren) entering school on Wednesday, September 8.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please see the link below and complete the following COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire either electronically or fill in the form we sent home before the break to gain entry into the school building on Wednesday, September 8th.

Policy Regarding Mandatory Use Of Face Masks

August 11, 2021

Good Morning Parents,

As I am sure everyone is aware, I wanted to share with everyone information about Executive Order 251 which requires masks in schools. As per the Executive Order...

"All public, private, and parochial preschool programs and elementary and secondary schools, including charter and renaissance schools (collectively “school districts”), must maintain a policy regarding mandatory use of face masks by staff, students, and visitors in the indoor portion of the school district premises,"  This is regardless of their vaccination status.

There are some exceptions (circumstances where masks can't be worn, such as those under the age of 2 years old) to the Executive Order which are outlined in more detail at the link below. Please note the Executive Order is effective as of Monday, Aug. 9th, thus this order does apply to ESY and summer school programs. This does not apply to summer camp programs which are governed by other executive orders. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Below is a link containing more information:

As always this information is subject to change.

Best regards,
