    Good Morning, Everyone,
     
    It seems that time is really passing, and it is truly unbelievable that Thanksgiving is next week! For easier reading, I am bulleting the information and reminders that I have for you below:
     
    1.      Many of our schools in the Diocese of Trenton have opted to go remote the week after Thanksgiving because some families will be travelling. We will not be transitioning to remote instruction, but if you feel for any reason that you would like your children to transition to remote instruction after Thanksgiving, please advise them to take all of their books home before Thanksgiving break, and email their teachers to advise them of the change. The decision to opt for remote instruction must be for a week at a time. We cannot accommodate students for a day at a time.
     
    2.      Just a reminder that if you are travelling during the holiday season to states and countries that are on the New Jersey list of areas that require quarantine, please contact us to let us know that your children will be transitioning to remote instruction for 14 days.
     
    3.      Thank you to all of you who diligently do the morning health check in Genesis for your children. Since we have stopped the daily Honeywell Alerts, the list of non-compliance with temperature checks is once again growing. If you are not in compliance, please comply immediately as we are trying to avoid issuing morning alerts again.
     
    4.      The winter uniform officially begins on Monday, November 30th. I have prepared a winter uniform list for you that can be found on our school website under Quick Links. Please consider the daily weather forecast and use your judgement when sending your children to school in the winter uniform. Students will not be penalized if they do not wear the winter uniform for a day or two due to the weather forecast.
     
    5.      Just a reminder that the financial aid forms for the 2021-2022 school year are already on the school website for your convenience. 
     
    6.      Please note that students who arrive late to school in the morning must report to the school office for a late pass before going to their classroom. Students who arrive after the morning prayer are considered late.
     
    7.      We have been experiencing a considerable number of students forgetting items at home, and parents having to bring them to school. Even though we do not allow parents in the building and ask them to leave the items just outside or inside the door, this process is time consuming and intrusive in the school day. Please help us cut down on these many instances by reminding your children to take everything they need for school before they leave home. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
     
    8.      Our PTA is beginning their Spirit Wear Sale. Please check out the school website for further information. Also, remember to pick up your Thanksgiving pies on Monday, November 23rd between the hours of 2:15 and 4:30pm. Pies that remain and are not picked up by 4:30pm will be donated to Open Door. Due to impending inclement weather you may pick up your pies at the gym door to the left of the U in the back of the school building. 
     
    9.      Just a reminder that Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, November 24th after the half day dismissal, and on Wednesday, November 25th until noon. Check with your child’s teacher for scheduling and availability.
     
    10.  Our PTA is working hard to plan the pandemic version of the Christmas Fair for our students to enjoy safely. Please see the flyers that are attached to this eblast for further information, and ways that you can help with the fair. Also, we are working on a plan so that our remote students can participate in the basket raffles if they would like to do so.
         
     
    Important Change in School Calendar:
     
    The last day of school before Christmas vacation has been changed to Friday, December 18th. There will be a half day on this date. Christmas vacation will now begin at dismissal on Friday, December 18th until Sunday, January 3rd. School is scheduled to resume on Monday, January 4th
     
     
    Thought for the Week…
