SSKCA Snow Plan

Dear Parents/Guardians,

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  

12:50-Grades: Kindergarten

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.

Happy Thanksgiving From SSKCA: Stay Safe, Travel Guidelines

Holiday Celebrations and Holiday Travel:

As we enter Fall and Winter many of us are starting to make plans for the holidays. Whether you’re visiting family members one state over or across the globe, travel makes up a huge part of the holiday season. There’s always a risk of getting sick while traveling because of the inherent stress of traveling, interacting with frequently touched surfaces in public places, and changes in climate and environment. But this year brings different considerations because of the Coronavirus Pandemic and the New York State Travel Advisory.

Things to consider as we enjoy this time with Family.

NYS COVID-19 Travel Advisory

The NYS COVID-19 travel advisory requires individuals who have traveled out of New York State to noncontiguous states for more than 24 hours to either quarantine for 14 days upon return to New York State or “Test to Exit” quarantine.

For travelers who were out-of-state for more than 24 hours:

  • Travelers must obtain a test within three days of departure, prior to arrival in New York.
  • The traveler must, upon arrival in New York, quarantine for three days.
  • On day 4 of their quarantine, the traveler must obtain another COVID test. If both tests comes back negative, the traveler may exit quarantine early upon receipt of the second negative diagnostic test.

The Office of the Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn has expanded the International Travel Advisory to include all International Travel.

Full Information on the NYS COVID-19 Travel Advisory can be found at: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory

CDC Recommendations for Holiday Celebrations and Travel

Full Information on the CDC Recommendations for Holiday Celebrations and Travel can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays.html

Please Note: As per the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) schools can implement safety and health protocols that go above the NYS DOHMH and NYC DOHMH required safety and health protocols.

SSKCA Supports North Brooklyn Angels – Help Us Reach our Goal!

Dr. Green has set a goal for SSKCA to receive 120 frozen turkeys from the SSKCA family on Turkey Day.  SSKCA is partnering with North Brooklyn Angels. Read on for more information about how to donate!

Dear Friends in the St. Stan’s community,

Sharing food and addressing food insecurity is one act that has brought many diverse members of our community together. We want to invite you to join us as part of such a timely opportunity again as we approach the Thanksgiving/Holiday season.

Thank you for your past support of the work of the North Brooklyn Angels. None of the new and significantly expanded food distribution effort, which the Angels have achieved in our North Brooklyn community, could have happened without the donations and support from you and others like you.
With your help and the help of over 1,300 volunteers, we have successfully distributed 100,000 meals, 600,000 pounds of groceries/produce, 10,000 diapers, 5,000 socks and more.

As the holidays come closer, and the days grow colder, we will continue working hard to marshal our capacity to bring some joy to less fortunate neighbors. These efforts will start with Neighbors Giving Thanks, a week-long series of food distributions.

1) those who can cook at home will receive turkeys, trimmings and goodies for that special day;
2) those who can’t cook are offered to come to the Brooklyn XPO center to pick up a pre-reserved meal and go safely. For our homebound, isolated seniors, we plan to deliver a special meal, one by one, so they know that we care about them.

We are extremely thrilled that St. Stan’s has offered to assist us this year by sponsoring a Turkey Day, with a goal of receiving 120 frozen turkeys donated by their families, that we will be picking up starting on Friday, 11/20. We are asking that these turkeys be around 10-12 pounds and dropped off frozen, so that we can distribute them according to our needs. If it’s not possible to donate a frozen turkey, we are also accepting desserts (think about something that can be portioned for easy
distribution). However, if you would like to make a monetary donation, that would be great as well, but the intention is to provide a delicious meal to those who may go hungry on Thanksgiving Day.

For those that are interested, our GoFundMe link is:
https://www.gofundme.com/f/neighbors-giving-thanks-2020

If you want to help in other ways tell us on social media or email
at neighborsgivingthanks2020@gmail.com.

Our wish for you and yours is a safe and beautiful Thanksgiving, whatever way you end up celebrating. On behalf of the Angels, please know we are so grateful that you have allowed us to blossom to face the pandemic.

In appreciation,
Founders: Neil Sheehan, Fr. John Merz and Executive Director: Felice Kirby

 

 

SSKCA Launches Student Council to Promote Civic Engagement

The Student Council has multiple goals. The first and foremost is to create an environment where students feel that they have the ability to affect real change in their school and then give them to the tools to actually make that change happen. Through the Student Council, we want to create an additional opportunity to learn collaboratively, to work cooperatively, think critically, and foster their leadership skills as they listen to and work with their fellow students to make St. Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academy an even better place for growing socially, emotionally, and academically.

To accomplish this, we will have class representatives from grades 4-8. These representatives will listen to the concerns of their classmates and bring those issues to the council to discuss. Among these representatives, we will have several members serve as our executive board and fill several specialized positions: President, Vice President, Public Relations Officer, and Secretary.  These positions have the shared role of representing not just their classes to the student council but also representing the school as a whole to our community. More specifically:

The President will run Student Council meetings. They are in charge of setting the meeting agenda and moderating discussion and votes. Ideally, by the end of the year they should be able to smoothly run council meetings with only minimal input from the council’s director. The President will also be in charge of giving two State of the Academy speeches per year as a way of boosting their public speaking skills while also representing the feelings of the student body to the school as a whole.

The Vice President holds a position very similar to the President. They will be helping to set the agenda for and run meetings along with the President. They will also fulfill the role of the President if they are unable to attend meetings. Additionally, they will also present their own Vice President’s speech to the school once a year.

The Public Relations Officer will be in charge of overseeing the creation of any student made promotional materials and also formally proposing potential School Spirit events. These events will be designed to raise money for the Student Council to use to the school’s benefit. The Public Relations Officer will be in charge of tracking these funds. It is our hope that over time we will be able to grow and split this position into both the Public Relations Officer and a full time Treasurer position.

The Secretary will be in charge of keeping a record of what goes on at Student Council meetings. And, perhaps most importantly, they will be in charge of liaising with the teachers of younger grade students who do not have representatives on the Student Council so that all SSKCA voices are heard.

The students have been working on positions and campaigning over the past month. Elections will be held Monday, November 8th, 2020.

Reminder: Daily Healthcheck Form Required

Parents have to complete a Health Screening Form for each student every day they come to school. 

Rather than running off papers and us collecting the papers, Option C has developed a way to complete the forms online through the parent portal.  Attached are directions on how to find and complete the forms. It is a time saver for both you, the teachers and the office staff and it is fairly easy to complete.  If you should have any questions please let me know.  Have a most blessed day!
