​**ALL NEW INFORMATION WILL BE HIGHLIGHTED**

PREPARATIONS FOR FALL:

  • Please read this letter written by the Superintendent of Schools of the Diocese of Harrisburg on reopening this fall.  Fall Re-Opening

  • Many things are still unknown for fall; however, here is what we do know...

    • School will start on August 19 as scheduled.​

    • It will look different than our usual starts.

    • Student health & safety will be our number one concern.

    • We tentatively plan to start school with 100% of students present for instruction.

    • We may not follow the Waynesboro School District for decisions as we have done in the past.

    • Parent volunteering in the school will be limited. Alternative options are being sought for those who chose volunteering as an ATP requirement.

    • Busing may be limited. Carpooling will be encouraged.

    • We will continue to rely heavily on Google Classroom in the event our school would have to move to virtual instruction for short closures.

    • Sanitation in classrooms will happen frequently throughout the school day.

    • We have applied for two grants and will use any money rewarded to purchase extra sanitation supplies for the safety of students as well as more technology for grades K-4.

    • A Covid-19 Preparedness and Safety task force will be formed and brought together with a task force from Corpus Christi School to create a plan that works for our Catholic Schools in Franklin County.

  • To help our task force with planning, please take this short survey on ​the start of school for fall 2020.

 

IXL SUMMER LEARNING:

  • We are excited about our new summer program. No more papers, no more fuss!

  • This program begins with a diagnostic assessment so it can completely tailor learning to your child's needs in reading and math.

  • Log in information is exactly the same as Sumdog for your convenience.

  • The program is completely optional but highly recommended to avoid the "Summer Slump"

SUMMER OFFICE HOURS:

  • Monday- Thursday 8:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

  • We are still working from home until we get permission to resume a normal work schedule. You can always email myself, Nina, or Sylvia for assistance until we are back in the office full time.

 

TENTATIVE 2020-21 CALENDAR:

ROCK GARDEN:

  • Now that the weather is growing warmer, we had big plans to create a prayer & kindness garden outside of the office. We would still like to go forward with our plans. We had a generous donor give money for the garden boxes, fresh mulch, plants, statue, and solar lights. The garden will be donated in memory of Mariana Krawczak, who was former student of St. Andrew School. 

  • We would very much like the students to be involved with this project. If you are looking for a fun family activity, we ask that you paint large rocks and add kind words, messages, passages from the bible or anything similar to the photos provided. We will use these rocks in our garden to bring joy to those who visit our school. There is no limit to how many you paint. The more the better!

  • You may paint and place the rocks in the area outside the office at any time. We will take care of the rest. Thank you for your help!

SCRIP NEWS:

  • Scrip Cards are still available and we have a large inventory of Martin's and Walmart. Peg Wagaman can be contacted via email (pwagaman@saintandrewschool.org) if anyone wants to make arrangements to purchase these.   We won't be able to fill Klines, NuVogue or China Maple at this time.  A reminder to use the online purchasing available through ShopwithScrip.com, as explained in the papers sent home in the last Thursday folder prior to school closing. The online enrollment code is AB1L6E36873.
