Registration for the 2021-22 school year will be the first week of March.  At this point, we fully expect the next school year to return to a sense of “normal” and we are excited to move forward.  

We will no longer have paper registration forms for you to complete.  We will be registering new and returning families through FACTS Management. On March 1st, you’ll receive an email from FACTS, that will include instructions and the link to register your child or children. You will need to know the District Code: TRIN-NY to create an account. Important: the email address we have on file in Facts Management MUST be the same email address you use to create your account, otherwise you’ll have to re-enter all of your information again. 

After creating your account, you’ll be directed to the Family Portal to begin the process. From there, you will find all of the necessary registration forms on the left of the screen. Some information has already been added, but please double check all information in FACTS. Some documents may need to be uploaded into FACTS. 

For current students who will re-enroll for September, you’ll complete an Enrollment Packet

For new students (joining Trinity in the fall of 2021) you’ll need to complete a New Student Packet.

The login and registration process is different from the FACTS Grant and Aid application that we already use for tuition. That is through the Payment Plans/Financial Aid tab right below the Parent Login tab.

New students will pay $20.00 for an application fee. There is a $15.00 fee per returning student to re-enroll. Therefore, Trinity will not be collecting our usual $55.00 fee for registration. 

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the school (315-769-5911) or contact Sarah Tsibulsky at sarahtsibulsky@yahoo.com or call/text 1-607-382-5878.

Good evening.  This is Mrs. Giroux from Trinity Catholic School with a weekly update.  Tomorrow, which will be a day 2, we will have a Monday morning prayer service led my Ms. Burns’ 3rd grade class.  We will celebrate any birthdays for the week, honor our Disciples in Action and recognize our IReady winners for the week.

This week will be Wellness week, so Mrs. Butchino will have some healthy food choices on Wellness Wednesday, and Mrs. Boyea will provide a fun and fit activity for us on Get Fit Friday.

Thursday of this week is another Take Time Thursday.  Our family support coordinator, Mrs. Behrens, is asking us to have a family discussion about – wait for it – something positive that happened during the pandemic.  She is asking that after your discussion you create a poster, a journal page or picture and send it to school with your child or send it to Mrs. Baillargeon at advancement@trinitycatholicschool.net. The items sent to school will be posted around the school for our school community to see.

Mrs. Baillargeon also sent out a survey for parents to fill out asking about how you feel Trinity has done during our time during the pandemic. She is asking for parent testimonials which she will place on our webpage.  Each person who submits a tribute will have their name in a drawing for a gift card from a local business.

Tomorrow begins our registration week!  As mentioned on Dojo, emails and Sunday calls, registration will be online this year.  You will be receiving an email from FACTS management inviting you to register.  Returning students’ information will automatically be uploaded, but each family will need to officially register and create a parent account.  Remember, the email address that you use on Facts Grant and Aid must match the email address you use to register. And, if you tell another family about Trinity and they actually enroll their child or children for the 2021-22 school year, you will receive $100.00 towards your tuition for that same year. And, as you know, our PreK3 and PreK4 classes fill up quickly, so if you are registering for one of those classes or know someone who is, please spread the word.

And, just a heads-up: there is a staff day listed on the yearly calendar on Friday, March 19.  Instead of taking that day, we will have a staff day on Monday, March 22.  We know that Massena Central students are all remote on Mondays, so we are trying to accommodate families who have students at Trinity and in the Junior High and High School.

 


 

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
