We pray for and thank those helping battle the coronavirus pandemic.

During these unprecedented times they need to know that we are grateful for their service to others.  Our frontline medical personnel face an unprecedented challenge and the best thing we can do in return, other than staying at home, is thank those risking their own health to help others.

 

Dear Visitation Parents,

This health crisis is all very new and ever changing.  Every day creates new challenges.  I applaud how our community – faculty, students, parents – have stepped up to surround our children with love and reassurance.  We are all frightened by this virus and how it has abruptly changed and shattered our daily routines.  Please keep in mind that our children are anxious and confused too; they hear the news and feel our tension and anxiety.  They have never experienced anything like this before; being off from school, might at first seem novel and fun, but the reality is that we are all trapped at home and students cannot see their friends. In addition to schoolwork, parents need to schedule things for children to do to help them deal with the anxiety, anger, or disappointments of not being able to do their normal activities.  Maybe it is to play outside, go on a walk, bake cookies, paint pictures, play board games, do a science experiment together, go on a virtual field trip, start a book and read together as a family, do yoga, or participate in an online exercise class.  We all need distractions to help us through this difficult time.

All the students are in the same situation – online, distance learning.  As educators, we are working to keep the students engaged as learners.  It is important for students to be reading (or read to) and writing everyday.  The teachers are posting work and activities for the students.  This process is novel and requires much patience on the part of everyone; I appreciate the support that parents are able to give the students.  When we are back in the classroom, we will all be able to come together and continue our learning. Teachers are working hard to ensure the students are continuing to develop their academic skills.

At the end of all of this, students will remember feeling their parents’ love and patience as the guiding force through this challenging time. These feeling of being loved and protected will stay with them long after the memory of what they did during those weeks is long gone.

Stay safe and be well,

Jean Bernieri

I want to provide you with an update on Visitation’s response to the escalating coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. The safety and well-being of our students and the entire Visitation community continue to be our priority.

In an effort to help contain the spread of COVID-19 at our school, Visitation announced the suspension of face-to-face instruction starting on Monday, March 16.

The rapid spread of the coronavirus in our community has led the Mayor to close the public schools until April 20th. In view of this and the latest CDC recommendation of halting gatherings of 50 people or more, we have made the decision to extend online instruction until April 20th.

All Visitation events are cancelled for this time as well. In the weeks ahead, we will make an announcement about plans for Visitation’s various events and activities, currently scheduled after April 20th.

We ask for your patience as we continue to develop academic plans for Visitation students.

We hope and pray that school closures will help to limit the potential exposure and transmission of the virus in New York City. I wish to thank all of you for your continued support and understanding during these challenging and unprecedented times.

This is an extraordinary time for everyone, and I am grateful to all the members of our community for their dedication and flexibility as we transition to digital learning for the next few weeks.

Jean Bernieri

Head of School

 

 

 

Prayer – Tom Chadzutko  Superintendent~Catholic School Support Services

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas. We fly to you today as your beloved children. We ask you to intercede for us with your Son, as you did at the wedding in Cana.

Pray for us, loving Mother, and gain for our nation and world, and for all our families and loved ones, the protection of your holy angels, that we may be spared the worst of this illness.

For those already afflicted, we ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance. Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful, wipe away their tears and help them to trust.

In this time of trial and testing, teach all of us in the Church to love one another and to be patient and kind. Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts.

We come to you with confidence, knowing that you truly are our compassionate mother, health of the sick and cause of our joy.

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection, keep us in the embrace of your arms, help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus. Amen

May God continue to watch over each of you, your children and family!

Sincerely,

Thomas Chadzutko
