Dear Paramus Catholic Students and Families,
Thank you, Paramus Catholic students and families, for the ease in which you transitioned to virtual instruction. I would also like to publicly thank the faculty and staff who, as a team, worked together to achieve this success. Unknowingly, at the beginning of the school year, I had chosen a quote of St. Teresa’s to guide us through our school year, “Together we can do great things”. Little did I know how true her wisdom would shine through.
Our Paramus Catholic families’ sacrifices have not gone unnoticed. As we begin summer break, I want to reassure you that we are prepared, as a school community, for the fall. Regardless of the direction and guidelines that we are given from the Archdiocese, the state, and health department, your child’s safety and health will never be compromised and you can be assured that each student will continue to receive an excellent education. Your child’s education is our number one priority and the quality of PC instruction will never be compromised. PC remains vital and steady and strong. As Principal of the school, I can assure you that the teachers, staff, and administration have not ceased in their dedication and commitment to your child’s education.
At this time, we have begun emptying lockers and putting contents in bags, as students are not allowed in the building. Underclassmen pick up directions have been posted on Plus Portals as well as emailed to families. Each student has an assigned date and time. Please drive to your assigned area, front or rear of the building and a staff member will deliver the bag to your car. Students are not allowed to get out of the car. State books will be collected, please make sure your name is visible. Sports equipment will be collected in July following a different procedure.
As we navigate through the plan for the 2020-2021 school year, please check Plus Portals and the website for announcements and letters. The first day of school for the 2020-2021 school year is Friday, September 11, 2020.
On behalf of the administration, faculty, and staff, we wish all a safe, happy, and well-deserved summer.
In your gratitude,
Dr. Stephanie Macaluso
