Dear Parents and Guardians of Incarnation Catholic Academy,

As we continue to work on re-opening Incarnation Catholic Academy for September 2020, some questions have come up by phone or email.

First, while most of you are happy we will be going back to full days Monday through Friday (hopefully), some parents have expressed concern about this, and already know they are not sending their children to the Academy building for instruction. For these students, the curriculum will be taught by remote learning. Tuition rates will be the same for all students, regardless of whether they are being taught in the school building, or at home.

Also, this is a gentle reminder to those families who still have not finished paying for the 2019-2020 school year, that you must have a zero balance in order to hold a seat for your child, for September 2020.

If there is a hardship that has occurred, please email me so we can set up a meeting to figure out a solution. Fr. Gannon is very willing to listen and help in any way he can.

Ms. Williams will be transferring all old debt to the FACTS system on August 1, 2020, which will be added to your August 15th bill. She would like all 2019 -2020 arrears paid to FACTS by July 31, 2020.

Please email me with any questions or concerns at my email address:

Stay safe,

Ms. Bellone

Dear Parents and Guardians of Incarnation Catholic Academy,

Incarnation Catholic Academy is planning on opening in September! Fr. Gannon (our new Pastor), Mrs. Eileen Griffo, and I, have been working and planning to ensure that our students, faculty, and staff remain healthy, while having access to the school building for a 5-day, in-school model.

Governor Cuomo will be informing us of his final decision on school opening, during the week of August 1-7.

While some Catholic Schools cannot accommodate a 5-day in-school plan for their entire student body; we can. We have enough spare classrooms to have all our students attend school all week, all day.

There is much more information to share with you from the New York State and Department of Health guidelines. Therefore, I will be up-dating you on a weekly basis, on our Academy Homepage.

As we continue to work on these plans, there is something you, the parents, can do to help your child and the teachers—- start having them wear a mask, extending the time each day, so they get used to it.

To go from not wearing a mask, or hardly ever, to wearing one for 6 hours straight, is not fair to the children. I think you would agree, that if you get them used to this routine, they will be ready for September 9th. I know you will help us in this endeavor, as it is our hope to get back to learning together in one building.

Compliance must be 100% for the safety of all. More updates will follow.

Stay safe,

Ms. Mary Bellone
