WELCOME TO ST. CECILIA CATHOLIC SCHOOL
St. Cecilia Community,
I hope this email finds you well. You will find the St. Cecilia School Re-opening Plan on the right hand side of the screen located under 2020-2021 School Information. Thank you for your patience as we created this document. As explained in the plan, not every foreseeable circumstance can be addressed in this document. Some topics are already covered in the Diocese's plan which was sent out last week and is also linked within our plan. Many of the procedures of the day to day are still being worked out by our staff and will be further detailed in later communication. Detailed procedures of pickup and drop off which have remained pretty much intact will be sent out for those unfamiliar with the process.
You will also find a "checklist" of sorts with any sort of call to actions from the Re-opening Plan. Much of the documentation will be sent home within family folders.
You will also find an updated School Calendar on this page. Please, note that we will now be in school on Tuesday, September 8th and Friday, May 28th. Additionally, on the calendar, you will see six planned NTI days throughout the school year for student preparation and teacher collaboration. Please, see the Re-opening document for more details concerning these days.
Other important events/ dates:
School Office Hours
The School Office will officially be open starting Monday, August 3rd on Monday-Friday from 9am-Noon. On August 14th, the school office will be closed for the Holy Day. Masks are required to enter the building.
"Open House" for our families will take place on Sunday, August 9th from 12:00-2:00pm. As is tradition, it will follow the 11:00am Parish Mass. Students and families can come into the school building to drop off their supplies, check out their classrooms, and see their teachers.
Students and families entering the building will be required to wear masks. Within the building, families are to head straight to respective classrooms to drop off their things and then exit the school building after. Families should not be touring the rest of the building.
Families are recommended to enter the building according to their last names to avoid congestion by the following time slots:
12:30-1:00 - G-L
1:30-2:00 - T-Z
Outside there will be a Kona Ice truck for qualifying ticket sellers as explained in other communication, PE uniforms available for pickup for those who have ordered and nap mats will also be sold for Kindergarten students. Outside the building physical distancing is strongly encouraged. This event is optional and school supplies can be brought on the first day of school.
Kindercamp will still take place on August 4th and 5th according to the communication sent out by Mrs. Parnitzke and Mrs. Whisman. The parent orientation for Kindercamp has been cancelled. Please reach out to Mrs. Parntizke or Mrs. Whisman with questions.
First Day of In-person Instruction
We are scheduled to begin in-person instruction on Monday, August 17th. An updated calendar is provided on this page and an opt-out policy is explained in the attached document.
Thank you again for your support, patience and understanding. We are blessed with such a great community, and staff. Though there will be obstacles, I have no doubt we will get through this temporary situation stronger than ever. We are all in this together! Let me know if you have any questions. Keep the faith!
