Textbooks: Students should bring their textbooks to class every week. Along, with that, we request all students to bring a 1 subject notebook, pencil, and erasers. Almost all the students in grades pre-school to 5 received their textbooks on the 1st week of school. If you were absent until now, please reach out to the school principal to collect your textbooks. Some students may not have received their story books. We will supply them once they are available. Books for grades 6-8 are not available yet. Please use the online textbooks for now. Textbooks are available through the catamilacademy.org parent login [Parent Access > Child Resources Info, look for the textbook column/icon at the end].
COVID-19 safety check: We’d like to remind you to perform a daily symptom check on your child before sending them to school and to keep them at home if they are feeling ill for any reason. With your support, we can reduce exposure to COVID-19 and other illnesses to keep our school community safe. Face coverings are recommended for students & individuals on the school campus.
At-home COVID-19 tests: All should have received a free at-home CoVID-19 test kit. We still have a few left and if anyone wants them, feel free to stop by our front office. FDA has extended the expiration dates for these COVID-19 test kits. See here: https://www.fda.gov/media/158007/download. For the lot code we supplied, 221CO20214, they are valid till Feb 13, 2023.
If your student (or the volunteer) receives a positive test result, please do the following:
- Follow the SCPH Guidance & Decision Tree
