School Closing

Dear SCCA Family,

I just received confirmation that all Catholic Academies and Parish Schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn will be closed during the Week of March 16, 2020 to March 20, 2020.

In preparation for the success of Distant Learning:

SCCA Faculty will have a Professional Day on Monday to plan for distant learning, ways of assessing students work, and accommodating those without Wi-Fi accessibility.

Students will be bringing all books home today.

Parents will receive a code to join google classroom by Tuesday morning via option C.  In order to sign into Google Classroom, the student must have access to a valid gmail email address.  If you or your child does not have one it is strongly recommended to create one as soon as possible.

Each teacher will provide instruction and work through google classroom and /or the SCCA website.   Teachers will be able to communicate and assess student work. Grades 6-8 already have an account for Google Classroom.

In order for distant learning to be effective, students must have access to technology.  This Academy does have Ipads available to lend, but the number is limited.  If you need an Ipads please sent a request to SCCA@stclarecatholicacademy.org and we will try out best to accommodate. 

More information will follow as planning continues.

I will communicate with parents via Option C.

Thank you for your understanding as we continue to make accommodations for the continuation of academics and well-being of  all.
