Nurse's Corner

Thank you to everyone for keeping your children home when they are not feeling well and keeping us informed of any illnesses. With your cooperation we will continue to keep our school community safe.

Just a few reminders:

  • If your child is home sick for more than 24 hours we will need a doctors note in order for them to return to school. 
  • This year with COVID-19 continuing to be active the State Department of Public Health is encouraging everyone to receive an influenza vaccination by the end of October. The vaccinations are now readily available. Once your child receives the vaccine, please send proof into school for the nurse to document. 
  • If your child is home sick and the doctor recommends a COVID test please do not get a rapid test. We will only be accepting the PCR test in order to return to school. 
  • Many of us suffer from seasonal allergies and may experience symptoms similar to COVID-19. 

Symptoms more common of seasonal allergies and not COVID-19 are itchy or watery eyes and sneezing. 

Symptoms more common of COVID-19 are fever and chills, muscle and body aches, new loss of taste or smell, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea. 

If you obtain positive results after school hours, please email Mrs. Tiezzi and the nurse

When in doubt call your pediatrician. 

Recent Online Surveys

Thank you to everyone who completed our most recent online survey on what you feel is going well this year and what ideas you may have for continued improvement. Overall your responses indicate that SRS is doing a great job with both in-person and online learners. Some concerns mentioned include working with the remote students on building community, additional mask and fresh air breaks, minor technology issues, concerns about the colder weather approaching, and our ability to get outside as often. I will be sharing the results of the survey with the teachers and staff, and together we will address those areas of concern. Once again, we are most grateful for your support, encouragement, and feedback. Working together, we will keep our school community safe, well, and moving forward.

Be the Light

Our school-wide theme this year is Be the Light. Especially in this year of COVID, it is up to each of us to offer everyone in our St. Rita school family encouragement, kindness, compassion, and hope each and every day. In times when someone in our school family is struggling, we can offer encouragement to help them regain their glow and help their light shine. As Matthew says in his Gospel, “let your light shine, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”
