Several parishes within the Diocese of Brooklyn are hosting COVID Antibody testing sites, conducted by Northwell Health or Somos Healthcare.  We would recommend encouraging parents and students to avail themselves of this offering.  The testing is being done by appointment at no charge, regardless if a family has medical insurance or not. 

To sign up to be tested, go to:  https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/find-test-site-near-you showing testing site locations. Listed below are the specific phone numbers to schedule an appointment for the sites below.  

Here are the locations:

Most Holy Trinity at 140 Montrose Avenue, Brooklyn– this Northwell Healthcare site is located near Queen of the Rosary and Stanislaus Kostka Catholic Academies:  Testing begins on Monday, June 22 through August 31. Telephone: 1-833-422-7369

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS

We will be open from 8:00am – 1:00 pm Monday to Thursday through July 15.

As of now, the school building is not able to accept people inside. However, we will be available during those times to answer any phone calls and take payments using a credit or a debit card.  

SCHOOL UPDATE: JUNE 22, 2020

Dear SRCA Families,

Remember tomorrow we begin the process of picking up personal items and dropping off textbooks.  See the schedule below.

A table will be set up on the mezzanine and parents will come with their child’s returned materials.  You will receive a plastic bag where you will place the textbooks inside.  In turn, you will receive a plastic bag with your child’s personal belongings.  

Upon arrival, make sure of the following…

  • Everyone should wear a Mask and Gloves while picking up materials, if the person picking up the materials does not have on a mask and gloves, no materials will be given.
  • Only one person allowed in the designated area at a time
  • After receiving the materials, the parent immediately leaves the school.

I am aware that some parents have children in multiple grade levels and will wonder if they can come and pick up their children’s belongings in one scheduled pick up time.  Unfortunately, the answer is no because teachers are also scheduled at different times to come in the building to clean out their classrooms and prepare your child’s personal items for pick up.  We still have to adhere to social distancing protocols and to ensure everyone is staying safe and healthy.  I apologize for any inconvenience this will cause. 

Report Card Distribution

On your scheduled day of pick up, you will also receive a copy of your child’s report card for the year if all financials are paid in full.  In addition, you will be able to see your child’s report card on OptionC on Tuesday June 23rd

This week, the 2019-2020 academic year will come to an end.  This academic year will go down in history as; one that moved learning from the classroom to the distance learning environment, one where the emotional needs of everyone was addressed through Zoom meetings, and one that through all the challenges we faced, focused each of us on sustaining the Mission and Ministry of Catholic education in what became, the new normal.

 

Together, we have accomplished much and I THANK YOU for all your PATIENCE, UNDERSTANDING, and COOPERATION throughout these last few months.  As we close out this end of the school year, I offer you the following prayer:

 

At the end of this academic year we give thanks to God:

For all the teaching and learning that has taken place in our Catholic Academy/Parish School, both in and out of the classroom,

For the talents and gifts that have been shared and the challenges that have been faced;

For the burdens that have been lifted and the hurts that have been healed; For the respect and care that has been given.

We give thanks for the friendships that have just begun and for those that have grown.

For the faith that has been lived in our daily struggles,

For the hope that has lifted our hearts on the dark days and for the love that has kept us going.

We give thanks for the community that we are, and we ask you Lord – Bless our students may your Spirit inspire them with confidence and calmness

Bless our families as we take our holidays, may our time together leave us with memories to cherish.

Pour out your love on us that we may return renewed and refreshed to continue our journey together.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.   Amen

Ms. Pinto’s Weekly Letter to Parents

June 8 -12, 2020

Hello Salve Regina Community,

I hope everyone has had a refreshing weekend and had a chance to practice some sort of self-care for you and your families.

All over our country many of our fellow American citizens have been advocating through hosting protests for the rights of George Floyd and many other victims that have lost their lives due to racial biases. In last weeks letter, I urged all of you to reflect on the best ways to provide spaces of understanding and healing for our students who may feel confused or deeply impacted. As a community we most educate one another as we take time to reflect on what is taking place throughout the country. 

Here are a few resources below that can assist with interacting with children as well as your own families:
