Raising Resilient Kids

Thank you



Dear Parents,


I would like to thank you for another successful week!  It has been wonderful welcoming the students back to their “new norm” of school during a pandemic.  They have been absolutely wonderful and we are blessed that you send them and trust us to do what is best for them while they are in our care.  This week we began using the parent locker app with faculty and staff and we hope to start using it with parents soon.  I would also like to thank all of the parents that attended the Back to School meetings in the K-2, 3-5 and 6-8 grade bands.  I have posted the Powerpoints shown at the meetings on the website under the “Parent Portal” on the right hand side of the website.  I will post all notices there as well. 


     As I posted in our meetings we will be creating new and different ways to do fundraisers and create service hours opportunities.  I have been working on an idea of a “Truck or Treat” if anyone would like to work off hours collecting donations of candy from local businesses or community members willing to donate, please let me know.  We will also need assistance making the bags.  If this is something that interests you, please email me at office@notredamecatholicacademy.net.

     Wednesday evening we will be having a High School information virtual meeting for the 8th grade parents.  This is a mandatory meeting for all 8th grade parents.  We will be giving out important information regarding 8th grade activities and the High School admission process.  A message with the Zoom link will be sent to your children through their Google classroom and we will create a notice and post it in the Parent Portal as well.

     In closing I would like to that all of the families that are helping and supporting us in our ‘New norm” and just remember:

  You can help keep your school community safe and healthy by following these important “Core Four” actions to prevent COVID-19 transmission:

· Stay home if sick: Monitor your health and stay home if you are sick, except for getting essential medical care (including COVID-19 testing) and other essential needs.

· Physical distancing: Stay at least 6 feet away from people who are not members of your household.

· Wear a face covering: Protect those around you. Wearing a face covering helps reduce the spread of COVID-19, especially if you are sick and don’t have symptoms. For more information about face coverings, visit nyc.gov/health/coronavirus and look for “FAQ’s About Face Coverings.”

· Practice healthy hand hygiene: Wash your hands often with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, if soap and water are not available; clean frequently touched surfaces regularly; avoid touching your face with unwashed hands; and cover your cough or sneeze with your arm, not your hands.


Stay well, and have a wonderful week!

Parent Locker Health Screening App

Good Morning Parents,

Thank you for all of you patience and support throughout our opening process.  In an attempt to make things move along smoothly we will be moving forward using the Parent Locker for Health Screening.  I have attached information below and hope to start using it by next week at the latest.  I ask that you please read the literature on it and be on the lookout for your information from the teacher to activate the app.

Thanks so much!

Welcome Back Letter to Parents – September 2020

Good Evening Parents,

I apologize for the delay in getting this out to you.  Covid-19 is an ever changing situation and our regulations are changing day by day.  I wanted to give you the most accurate information as possible.  The teacher’s have sent home supply lists already, or they are posted on the class page for each grade.  I will be posting hard copies as well on this page by Tuesday.  Please keep in mind that all children that have an NDCA iPad at home must bring it with them on their first day of school.  It is also necessary for ALL CHILDREN to have headphones with them in a plastic zip loc bag labeled with their name on them to leave in the school. 

Thank you and stay safe everyone!  Enjoy your labor day weekend!

Mrs. DiLorenzo

NDCA Reopening Plan has been submitted to the state.

Dear Parents,

I hope this finds you all safe and well.  I wanted to keep you aware of the status of NDCA for September.  On Friday we submitted our reopening plan for opening in September 5 full days with social distancing of 6 feet apart and masks for children in grades K-8.  Please see the reopening plan attached below.  I will be setting up Zoom meetings in grade bands of K-2, 3-5 and 6-8 next week where I will review the plan and answer questions as best as I can next week.  As you review the plan write down the questions so I can make sure I answer as much as I can.  I can’t wait to see everyone back in the building in just a few weeks.  You can also email any questions you have to me at office@notredamecatholicacademy.net.

Stay well and safe and enjoy the end of your summer!

Mrs. DiLorenzo
