From the Principal
As many of you are aware, St. Elizabeth and all Archdiocesan elementary schools WILL be opening in August! The staff and I are very excited to not only be welcoming your students back, but welcoming them to our new school – St. Elizabeth of the Trinity!
The Archdiocese released their Re-Opening guidelines last week to all principals, as well as a summary sheet to parents. I want to ensure you that we are going to do everything in our power to ensure that students are returning to a safe environment. I will be working diligently with staff and parents to accomplish our goals of re-opening with the safety of staff and students in mind. I am also aware of the challenges posed with the re-opening guidelines, such as the wearing of masks. I do encourage you to practice with your students wearing them for an extended period of time, even if you have to start out small and gradually increase the time. I know that this will be difficult for our staff and students, so please rest assured that as a staff we are developing ways to help students wear their masks that will not inhibit their learning, such as a “mask break” for our younger students, outside six feet apart. In no way will this be an easy task, but we are committed to our students, their health, safety and education!
When the details of the St. Elizabeth plan have been finalized, I will be sharing them with you through School Messenger. I will also send bi-weekly updates once St. Elizabeth’s School Messenger account is set up and we can access it. In the meantime, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org (Don’t forget the dot, nor the 2nd N in Hillmann!)
I cannot wait to meet all the students and families of St. Elizabeth and I wish you a wonderful rest of the summer!
Kristine Hillmann, Ed.D.
