St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy has developed a fully remote learning model for students, staff and parents in the event we have to resort to this method of teaching and learning either on a short-term basis or long-term basis during the course of the 2020-2021 Academic Year as a result of the pandemic. This plan applies for the entire school, including all grades from Pre-K3 through 8th.

The New York City Department of Education is delaying an answer to St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy’s proposal to continue to offer free pre-kindergarten services to families in our North Brooklyn community. Our Academy has had this program in place for the past 6 years and our future viability depends on having it!

I would like to first reiterate that at SSKCA we are committed to the safety of our students and staff. We are monitoring the news about COVID-19 and working with our local health officials to keep our schools safe. We want to share that we are continuing to take the necessary precautions to prevent the introduction and spread of viruses and other germs, and are cleaning off high-contact areas, such as handrails, towel dispensers, light switches, doorknobs and desks. The status of this situation is extremely fluid, and we are monitoring the progress of this matter thoroughly and consistently.
We encourage parents and students to continue following the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention promoted safeguards, such as washing hands with soap for at least 20 seconds; covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues; and avoiding others who are sick and staying home – if ill. Completing daily health checks on Option C before dropping off your child/ren is also mandatory.
We will continue to evaluate our school facilities and health guidelines to ensure the continuity of learning in a healthy and safe school community. It is a monumental task that lacks precedent and challenges our ability to continually adjust and recalibrate to a “New Normal” while grappling with any budgetary shortfalls and economic recovery efforts.
Thanks for your tremendous support and understanding as we venture forward to reinvent our school designs to optimize learning for our students and refocus our professional development to in-person and virtual learning support for our teachers and staff.
Let us continue to work together for the benefit of each child.

With everything else we are currently dealing with, this week before Christmas break, we now have been informed of a pending snowstorm for Wednesday into Thursday morning.
Planning for a snowstorm during a pandemic will be much different, since all schools can switch to remote learning. Although our school building may be closed, “snow days” no longer exist, as SSKCA will move to a remote learning platform. Full-day instructional schedule will still be provided.
Due to the uncertainty of the pending snow forecast. We are taking the necessary precaution to ensure the safety and welfare of all students and staff. As always this still remains one of our top priorities.
We will have early dismissal on Wednesday 12/16. Please follow the schedule below:
12:20 p.m.- Pre-K 3A , 3B, Pre-K for All
12:30-Grades: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th,7th, and 8th
12:40-Grades:1st and 2nd
Thursday 12/17 We will switch to Remote Instruction even if the New York City Department of Education decides not to close. Please refer to the remote learning plan that was sent to you earlier in November. Students are expected to be online promptly Thursday morning following their remote schedule.
These changes are all based on the weather forecast. We will resume In-Person instruction on Friday 12/18.
Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.
