Dear SPC Families, 

It is wonderful to be back at school! The children looked great today, and they were all ready to smile for the camera! Please see below for a few housekeeping reminders:

Tomorrow CTS Out of Uniform Day:

We have rescheduled the October CTS Out of Uniform day for tomorrow since we were not in school two weeks ago. 

Confusion About Re-enrollment Packets and Email Regarding Medical Forms:
Yesterday our re-enrollment system generated a reminder that health forms must be uploaded or your child will be excluded. Some parents did not realize they had to finalize their accounts. If you have previously uploaded your medical forms on FACTS, you just need to finalize and submit so that we can print your forms out. If you have not uploaded the required forms, please bring them to the office or send them in with your child. 

  • Physical Examination Forms are required for preschool, kindergarten, 6th grade, and all new and transfer students in any grade.

  • Dental Examination Forms are required for kindergarten, 2nd grade, 6th grade, and all new and transfer students in 1st - 8th grade.

  • Eye Examination Forms are required for kindergarten and all new and transfer students in 1st - 8th grade. 

Halloween:

Sadly we must cancel our beloved Fun Fair for this year. While it is easy to focus on what we can’t do, I would prefer to focus on what we can do:

  • Students may wear costumes to school on Friday, October 30th. They still must wear masks during the day, so I recommend not sending them with any other mask. Costumes must be appropriate for school. 
  • Students will have small Halloween parties in their classrooms. 
  • Students will be provided with a pre-packaged treat. Do not send treats from home; they will be sent back with your child. 

Dropoff and Pickup Safety:
For the safety of our children, we are asking all students to please cross at crosswalks. Parents, we cannot have students crossing in the middle of the streets. It is too dangerous.

No Parking Along Summit in Front of School:
Parents--do not park on Summit in front of the school in the morning. This is the kiss and go line for 7th and 8th grade. 

Social-Emotional Wellness Resources:

Community Resources:

Social Skills Group: Ages 5 & 6

Urban Wellness Parent Webinars

SPC Virtual Girls Group: 

What: Raising resilience - A virtual group for girls focused on self-empowerment. Some topics covered will include building self-esteem, friendship, kindness, cyberbullying, leadership, and tackling conflicting emotions. 

Who: 5th and 6th-grade girls

When: Starting the week of October 26th lasting 8 weeks during lunch and recess 

Who leads the group: Missy Williams and Katie McCarthy are clinical interns at Chicago Psychotherapy and in their second year of receiving their Masters in Counseling at Northwestern University.

St. Viator High School Upcoming Enrollment Event October 22nd

 

Dear SPC Parents,

It was lovely to have the kids back in school today, even for one day. Given the long weekend (although Conferences are Thursday and Friday), I wanted to send the Thursday mailing today as it relates to a review of travel restrictions should you be thinking of traveling over the weekend. Thank you for your efforts in keeping our students safe.

TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS
Given the upcoming holiday weekend, I think it bears a reminder of travel restrictions. We are using the Chicago Travel list per the guidance from the Archdiocese of Chicago. We are required to use the most strict list since we are along the border of Chicago and Park Ridge.

If you plan on traveling to any of these states (listed below) — you MUST quarantine for 14 days upon return. No questions!!! This applies EVEN if you are just going to a cabin and not going anywhere else. The rules are even if you travel for less than 24 hours— so no apple picking in Wisconsin, No outlet shopping in Kenosha, no quick trip to Mars Cheese Castle, no spotted Cow beer run. No trip to the Field of Dreams in Iowa. This guidance also applies to travel sports.
The old guidance was less than 24 hours, which has changed. If you are in the state for any amount of time, you must quarantine upon return.
Please see below for the updated Travel List:
https://www.chicago.gov/city/en/sites/covid-19/home/emergency-travel-order.html

NEW COVID TESTING AND DOCTOR’S NOTE GUIDANCE
The local departments of public health in Illinois, Cook County, and Chicago have recently updated their guidance concerning COVID-19 testing and return-to-work/school admittance.

Based on this new guidance, any individual (student or employee) who experiences COVID-like symptom(s):

Should be sent home immediately with any siblings
All students in the home may return to school if the symptoms dissipate within 24 hours and they have not been exposed to any individual infected with COVID-19. If symptoms do not dissipate within 24 hours, the individual should be:
referred to their healthcare provider for COVID-19 testing (it is important to note the type of test administered)
quarantined with the entire family while awaiting the test result.
The individual may return to school if both of the following criteria are met:

Documentation of a negative test for COVID-19
24-hours with no fever (without fever-reducing medication)
If symptoms persist, the individual should obtain an alternate diagnosis from a medical provider in addition to the negative COVID-19 diagnosis (e.g., strep throat diagnosis and negative COVID-19 result).

If an alternative diagnosis of a communicable illness is provided, the individual should stay home until symptoms have receded per doctor’s instruction. As a reminder, a doctor’s note is not required for individuals who are:

Confirmed COVID-19 positive. For the individual to return to school, he or she must have:

  • Remained at home for 10 days
  • No fever for 24 hours (without fever-reducing medication), and
  • A general reduction of other symptoms by 75% or more

Quarantined, but not symptomatic, due to COVID-19 exposure. Individuals may return to school if they have been quarantined for 14 days and not developed symptoms of COVID-19 during that time.

Practical Strategies for Emotional Checks in at Home.
Children and adults feel an array of emotions these days as we adapt in the face of uncertainty. One trauma-informed strategy we are using at school and encourage you to use at home is emotional check-in. This blog shares simple strategies and a calendar for daily activities. Don't forget to check-in yourself!

Peace,
Dr. Erika Mickelburgh

Dear SPC Families,

This is a very exciting day for the St Paul of the Cross community. We have just been awarded the 2020 Blue Ribbon for Academic Excellence. This award is given to schools that are among their state’s highest performing schools as measured by state assessments or nationally normed tests. This prestigious award is given to 347 schools across the country, but it is only given to 50 private schools. This award represents the unending commitment, hard work, and dedication of our amazing faculty. I am so proud of the faculty, staff, and students for all they have done to make this award a reality. To our students, you work so hard each and every day at doing your best on your schoolwork, and more importantly, you all work so hard to be kind to one another and grow in your relationship with God! Thank you to our parents, we are all grateful to you for giving us the gift of educating your children.  

Please see below for our school profile on the National Blue Ribbon website!

St. Paul of the Cross Blue Ribbon 2020

We are sending home pre-wrapped BLUE RIBBON lollipops today. Here are the ingredients: 
twist pops

Sadly, we will not be able to travel to Washington DC in November to accept the award, but we will begin planning a Blue Ribbon Spirit Week for November 9-13! More details of COVID safe fun to follow! 

Now for some business and reminders…..

NO SCHOOL TOMORROW: Professional Development for our Teachers!

Sleepovers
I have heard that in some schools (not SPC), COVID is being spread at sleepover parties. Please practice good judgement when socializing outside of school. And parents, let's face it---COVID-19 is a fabulous excuse to say no to sleepovers!

Travel
Wisconsin is now on the travel ban list of states in which a quarantine is required when returning to Illinois. This would include if you have a home in Wisconsin and are traveling back and forth from Illinois. Any stay longer than 24 hours requires a 14 day quarantine.

School Photos
Thursday, October 1st, prepay online ordering only. The photos done now in the Fall will be in school uniforms. New this year, we will be offering Spring pictures and they will be done without uniforms and will also include the option for sibling photos.
PREPAY--NO ENVELOPES WILL GO HOME!
Below is a prepay site and will be closed at some point, the day after Picture Day, to process the orders. At that point, parents will need to wait for their child's Ticket Code which is delivered with the bulk package orders, approximately three and a half weeks post picture day.
Please click this link to order and prepay for your child(ren)’s photos:
Color Portraits Prepay Ordering

Dismissal Reminder - parents should leave the campus as quickly as possible at dismissal...I am noticing a lot more parents hanging around and chatting etc. You must wear your masks when on campus.

Peace,
