Please Note:  Any student who is absent from school or leaves school early because they are not feeling well,

will need a doctors note to return to school. 

Effective 10/5/20:

Incarnation Catholic Academy is still open!
We are all safe and are monitoring the situation.
We are not included in the Hot Spot zip codes.

Parents please do your part and complete the Health Affirmation every morning.
Only 19 families set up their accounts, and not one of them filled out the affirmation this morning.

 

In compliance with New York State, CDC, Department of Health, and the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens, if any person, whether they are a student, staff member, teacher, or parent volunteer does not come into school, or leaves in the middle of the day, because of a physical ailment of any kind, they CANNOT return to the building without a doctor’s note giving them medical clearance.

–No exceptions will be made.

** This only applies for In-person School Learning Students **

* * This doesn’t need to be completed by the home-schooled students. * *

Every student who will enter the building must complete this health assessment every morning during the school week!

Myschoolbadge parents onboarding directions

The email for the student is something required in their system as a unique identifier.
 
However, that email of the student does not need to be a real email and can be made up like Studentid@incarnationqv.org.
Only for the student can a dummy email be added.
 
 
* * * Please purchase a thermometer if you haven’t done so already. The App asks for a recorded temperature everyday. * * *
 
7th grade parents: our class is setting up a collection to purchase a large room air purifier which goes for around $150.00 for our classroom. Please feel free to let me know if you find something cheaper but yet reliable =)
Please keep in mind that the windows will be closing soon due to the cold and we need ventilation.
Please contribute your donations towards this since this cold weather is quickly approaching us! You can send your donations with your child to bring to class and/or directly to me via our main office. You can always contact me if you have any questions or like another method of donating. Thank you!

 

* * * Our school is looking for additional parent volunteers for the month of November
For every day that parents volunteer, they will receive $25.00 off their monthly tuition bill!
Days could be Mondays or Fridays, not necessarily every day! You do not need to do everyday!
You can volunteer once a week or whatever works with your schedule.
Parents please email Principal Mary Bellone  at principal@incarnationqv.org with you availability
so she can make the new schedule by Monday or Tuesday of next week. * * *

October 15 Walk-a-  Letter for October 19 2020

The Walk-a-Thon is in progress (through the month of October).  All the required forms were given out in school and are posted on this website (scroll down).  We ask every student in the school to recruit 20 sponsors for each walker.  If each sponsor pledges $10, then we can raise $200 per student for this event.  This can only happen if every one gets involved and participates.  The child that raises the most money and the class that raises the most money will receive a prize.

 

* * Please read the attached letter from our Principal, Ms. Bellone. October 15 Walk-a-thon * *

 

Also, please let me know how many sponsors each of you have

and how many steps you have walked for our Walk-a-Thon!

 

I still need completed forms! This is a competition!

* * We will be making a chart for outside of our classroom showing how many steps our class has walked each day. * * 

 

All parents should have downloaded the MySchool Badge App.  This is a daily health check in that all students, teachers and administrators have to do in order to ensure our safety.  This short questionnaire needs to be completed by everyone every morning before they arrive at school.  This doesn’t need to be completed by the home-schooled students.  Each student is to provide their school email address that allows the system to identify them as a unique person logged in to the system.  If the student doesn’t have an email, then they can make one up (example: studentname@incarnationqv.org).  Please purchase a thermometer if you haven’t done so already.  The App asks for a recorded temperature everyday.

We are still looking for parent volunteers to help with hall duty and lunch distribution.If you are interested you must first make sure that you are Virtus trained.  You can find their website and information online at virtue.org.  Please email Ms. Bellone your availability at principal@incarnationqv.org.  Each day you come in  , you receive a $25 credit on monthly tuition bill.

The Zoom or Google meetings for our home-schooled learners are only for Incarnation Catholic Academy students.  Please do no share these unique class codes with anybody and parents should not be involved with these daily lessons.  Only the student should be seen on the screen.  Each student must also show their face at all times.  The teacher has a right to remove anyone who has their camera off or is not able to be seen on the screen.   If a teacher removes someone from a meeting, then they will be marked absent.

Late online assignment submissions will be met with a penalty (a reduction in credit).  Only assignments that are 2 days late will be accepted.  Students cannot hand in assignments that are weeks late.

Thank you for your cooperation in these above mentioned items.

 
7th & 8th grade students: There will be an Open House, which is by appointment only, on
 October 17th & 18th. 
Parents can schedule their appointment in the Admissions tab on the website, www.stjohnsprepschool.org.

I am still waiting for some of my home school students’ Opinion essay on Covid-19 that I assigned in class on Wednesday, September 9th. Please email this to me by Monday, September 14th to receive credit!

Starting next week, parents will have to fill out a “Daily Affirmation” on Optionc.com.  This electronic survey will be used as a check-in by parents, every morning, to assure that their child is being sent to school feeling well and free of illness.  More information will follow on how to fill out this important daily survey.

Thank you for your understanding.  

Keep safe and healthy! God bless! Have a great weekend!

9/9/20-In Person Students starts tomorrow at 8:30am-12pm.

 Tomorrow morning the students who opted for in person learning, will enter the building, wearing their masks. They will use Door “C” located at the rear of the building in the small school yard. That is the door closest to the church.  After they have their temperature checked they will proceed up the stairs directly to the 7th grade classroom. Please remind your children that they must maintain social distancing going up the stairs as well as in the hallways.

The homeschooling students will meet on Google Meet. The codes will be given in the morning for everyone. Students must be on Google Classroom by 8:30-8:45am for attendance and to meet your new teacher Ms. Kiely.

The teachers are working on the daily schedule which is contingent on the number of students physically present in the building. We should have a better idea after tomorrow and I’ll post a schedule as soon as it’s ready.

All grades will have a full day on Monday, grade 7 will enter the building through the “C” door between 7:45 and 8:00 and proceed directly to the classroom. 

9/14/20-Morning program, after school, and lunch will all begins. Lunch is a “grab and go” cold lunch. Please have your child bring a few extra masks in a Ziploc bag for their personal use. They should have hand sanitizer and cleaning wipes with them.

Please check the school website as well as your OptionC email daily. 

Any questions or concerns, please contact kkiely@incarnationqv.org.
