Thank you to all who purchased a ticket.



Good evening.  This is Mrs. Giroux  from Trinity Catholic School with a weekly update.  Tomorrow, which will be a Day 6, we will have our Monday morning prayer rally led by some of our special area teachers.  We will recognize our birthdays for the week and celebrate our Disciples in Action and our IReady winners.

Tomorrow begins our Souper Bowl!  Please bring in non-perishable food items or paper products to your classroom to help fill our local food pantries.  Our aim is to collect 2021 items.  We will have prizes along the way as we hit predetermined goals, and there will be a special school-wide prize if we hit our main goal of 2021.

This week is Wellness Week, which means we will be given some healthy food items to try at lunch on Get Well Wednesday, and do a fun physical activity for Get Fit Friday.  We may very well be going for a walk together on Friday, so please remember your warm winter wear that day and every day.

This Friday is also the end of the second marking period.  Report cards will be going home the following Friday, January 22.  This means we have made it ½ way through the school year.  With that in mind, because we really want to make it through the entire year, please continue to follow all the safety guidelines outlined by our Public Health Department.  Please keep your children home if they have any symptoms.  We want to avoid another quarantine situation.  Also, our children are going out for daily recess and enjoying the remnants of our last snowfall.  Children are not allowed to share sleds, so if you think your child would enjoy sledding during recess, just have them bring in one from home.

Looking ahead, we have a day off from school on Monday, January 18 to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King.  Have a wonderful week!






Dear Trinity Families, 

The New York State Department of Health recently provided updated guidance for families of students regarding  COVID-19. Please click here to review the flowcharts which outline the steps you must take if you answer  yes to any of the questions below. These documents are also posted on the COVID-19 Resources section on our website. 

Also, please note that anytime your child is experiencing COVID-like symptoms, the New York State Department  of Health is requiring that you must seek an evaluation by a healthcare provider within 48 hours in order for your  child to return to school. If you do not seek an evaluation by a healthcare provider, your child must remain in  isolation at home and is not able to go back to school until your local health department has released them from  isolation, which is typically: 

  • At least 10 days have passed since date of first symptoms; AND
  • Child’s symptoms are improving; AND
  • Child is fever-free for at least 72 hours without use of fever reducing medicines.

If you are not able to see a healthcare provider within 48 hours, or if your child is tested for COVID-19 but does not  receive the test result within 48 hours, your child will be treated as a positive case and must follow the procedure  outlined above until test results come back negative. 

Please communicate with the school immediately if your child is experiencing symptoms, or answers yes to any of  the questions below. Contact the school nurse with any questions or concerns. 

Screening Questions: 

In the past 10 days, has your child been tested for the virus that causes COVID-19, also known as SARS CoV-2? 

In the last 14 days, has your child: 

  • Traveled internationally to a CDC level 2 or 3 COVID-19 related travel health notice country; or 
  • Traveled to a state or territory on the NYS Travel Advisory List; or 
  • Been designated a contact of a person who tested positive for COVID-19 by a local health  department? 

Does your child currently have (or has had in the last 10 days) one or more of these new or worsening  symptoms? 

  • A temperature greater than or equal to 100.0° F (37.8° C) 
  • Feel feverish or have chills 
  • Cough 
  • Loss of taste or smell 
  • Fatigue/feeling of tiredness 
  • Sore throat 
  • Shortness of breath or trouble breathing 
  • Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea 
  • Muscle pain or body aches 
  • Headaches 
  • Nasal congestion/runny nose 

I understand that these new regulations will impose substantial hardship for families. Please know that these are the  regulations which the State of New York is requiring that all schools follow.
