REOPENING PLAN 2020-21
Welcome Back Eagles!
Frassati Catholic Academy is excited to welcome students back for the 2020-21 School Year! We offer the options of 5 full days of in-person instruction for our Kindergarten-8th Grade Students, 5 In-Person Preschool Options, and long-term E-Learning for our students. Our reopening team is working diligently to ensure we are prepared to welcome students back in a safe environment where we can address their social-emotional and academic needs. As updates and guidelines are finalized and released, we will update this page with the most up to date information regarding our Reopening Plan for the 2020-21 School Year. Thank you for your continued dedication and support of Frassati Catholic Academy. We are excited to be bringing our school community back together this fall and appreciate the support from our families. If there are questions, concerns, or topics that you feel need to be addressed in upcoming communications please don’t hesitate to reach out to the office staff so we may assist you.
Reopening Guidelines & Documents
School Specific Updates & Announcements *Updated 8/5/2020*
The Frassati Catholic Academy Reopening Handbook includes important information regarding our school reopening for the 2020-21 School Year. For additional updates and clarification of items in the handbook, please review the information below regarding the 2020-21 School Year.
Please review the attached arrival map to determine which door your student will be entering in the morning. All families should enter from Church Street by the playground to ensure one-way traffic around the building. If you are dropping off students in multiple grade levels, we ask that you follow this same one-way path around the school for drop off.
If you ordered school supplies with 1st Day school supply, they will be delivered to school and will be packaged and put directly in your student’s classroom. If your kit came with a backpack, water bottle, lunchbox or other extra materials, we will contact you about picking those items up prior to the start of the school year.
For our youngest students who might be learning to tie their shoes, it might be best to consider non tie shoes for the fall. This will avoid teachers and students touching shoelaces that have been possibly dragging on the floor.
In the past, we have had a late start on Fridays because students who use the District 118 bus come later due to the District 118 professional development time on Friday mornings. With the recent release of the D118 school plan, they have moved their professional development to other times of the week, so late start has been eliminated. School will begin at 8:30 each day with arrival and check in taking place between 8:00am and 8:30am.
First Day of School Update
In an effort to help families and students adjust to the first days of school we are making a modification to our opening day schedules. To help students have time to learn the new check in process, the safety protocols in the building and have time to put away their materials we are modifying the schedule.
Wednesday, August 19th: if your last name starts with A-M you will attend school from 8:30-11:45 (no lunch service.)
Thursday, August 20th: if your last name starts with N-Z you will attend school from 8:30-11:45 (no lunch service)
