It’s Yearbook Time Again!

(Yes, we are still creating a yearbook!)

 A group or 6th graders are busy producing a beautiful yearbook for all students to be able to purchase.  The cost of each book is $24. Orders will be accepted until April 16, 2021.  We will only order a limited number, so if you want one I encourage you to order one.  After all orders are filled, extra books will be available on a first come first serve basis.  Our books should arrive around the beginning of June.

As a special bonus, those parents that order online have the option to personalize the yearbook cover with your child’s name for just an additional $3.00.  Also online only, you can add icons to the cover of your child’s book for an additional cost.

To order, click on the Memory Book icon above and enter the school code. The school code is 078820.  If you choose to not order online, you can send in the money to school in an envelope marked “Yearbook” be sure to include your student’s name and teacher.  Thank you again for purchasing this wonderful keepsake.

Love Lines can be purchased online also for an additional $4!  I will download your special messages and add them to a Love Lines page in the yearbook after April 16th.  Please make sure that your message is exactly how you would like it to appear in the book. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at lwitkop@trinitycatholicschool.net.  Thank you for your support.

Good evening.  This is Mrs. Giroux from Trinity Catholic School with a weekly update.  Tomorrow, which will be a day 4, we will be led in prayer by Mrs. Fregoe’s kindergarten class.  Please watch us as we livestream our prayer service and recognize our birthdays for the week, honor our Disciples in Action and recognize our IReady winners for the last several weeks.

As mentioned last week, the NY State ELA tests begin this week.  Tests will begin for 3rd grade on Tuesday, then 4th grade on Wednesday, 5th grade on Thursday and 6th grade on Friday.  Tests should only take between 1 and 1 ½ hours.  If a student is absent, the make up test day will be next Monday, April 26.

I want to remind you to finish your enrollment process through Facts management as soon as you can.  This will greatly help determine class sizes and staffing issues for next year.  I know it’s only April and September seems so far off, but this is actually when schools start to think seriously about the next school year.  

Mrs. Baillargeon will be posting our May calendar soon.  You will notice that some of the dates for activities have changed from the yearly calendar.  It was difficult to develop a calendar last June when we didn’t know how much Covid safety precautions would rule our events.  Please refer to the monthly calendars for more accurate information.

And, just a reminder that we will be taking a staff day on Monday, May 24.  School will not be in session that day for students.  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. 

Sincerely, 

Joyce Giroux
