As you learn more about the specifics relating to your individual schools, now is an ideal time to contemplate a discussion with your child about what they should expect as school reopens.... Perhaps even more importantly, this will likely be the first time the children will have seen so many of their friends in person since March. Given they will be wearing face coverings and won't have the usual physical contact or freedom of movement, there are conversations that can be started now addressing the social and emotional aspects of coming back to school in a COVID environment.

The re-opening of school in September has been on all of our minds since before the last school year ended. Like many of you, I have been carefully following CDC and NYS communications regarding the re-opening of school and waiting for the Archdiocesan task force to issue the plan for re-opening... While we continue to face challenges as we begin a new school year, I am confident that we have the right combination of parents, faculty, and staff to make school “work” optimally for our students.
Since April, the Catholic Schools Re-Opening Council has worked tirelessly to prepare guidance that will ensure the safe return of our students, teachers, and staff to our school buildings. I am grateful for their efforts. Today, I am pleased to share with you the result of their work – Catholic Schools Opening: Moving Forward Together.

Each student chose an insect and drew an accurate zoom in picture, enhancing observational skills. While the students were free to use whatever supplies they wanted or they had at home to make their insects, our artists had to use “scientific eyes”, maintaining the proportions of the body and without forgetting that all the insects have two antennas, the body is divided in three parts, they have 3 pairs of legs (6 in total) and some of them have a pair of wings. Students completed their study, writing the scientific names of your insects and facts about the insects they chose.
Uncertainty and inconsistency invariably leads to speculation, and at the forefront of recent COVID-related speculation has been the question of when school buildings will open again. That question is always followed with, "What will it look like?" In the first days of the COVID-19 crisis, my office established our Health and Safety Task Force. Guided by the advice and direction of government officials and health experts, we have been proactive and thorough in establishing policies to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff.
We respect those who want to honor George Floyd’s memory with peaceful protest against the horror, evil, and sin that is racism. We also support the members of Floyd’s family who said, in part, “We cannot endanger each other as we respond to the necessary urge to raise our voices in unison and in outrage. Looting and violence distract from the strength of our collective voice.”
