We are aware of the governor’s policy lifting mask regulation in most settings. This policy DOES NOT apply to all Pre-K through Grade 12 NYS schools. Therefore, all individuals on St. Jude the Apostle School grounds will continue to be required to wear masks. This DOES include parents at drop-off and pick-up times. Thank you for your cooperation.



Summer Camp is almost at full capacity! There are only a few spots remaining!! Once spots are filled, we will no longer be accepting registrations. If you are interested, send in your registration ASAP! We only have a couple of openings left in week 6. All the other weeks are closed out.


St. Jude the Apostle School 2020-21 Year Books – We only have a few Year Books Left! If you would like to purchase the 2020-21 year book please send the form that was sent home in with the$15.00 fee for each book that you order. They are going FAST!  We are taking orders until they are gone. We will not be ordering any extra. Please make checks payable to St. Jude the Apostle School. Some of the students have received their year book. They may bring them into school and have them signed beginning Monday, June 14th.


Clynk It – Start saving those returnable bottles! Create your account at www.CLYNK.com. Bag it, tag it and drop it at your local Hannaford Supermarket! Let us know if you need any more bagsJ We have had

such an overwhelming response to this fundraiser that we have had to order more bags!!! Keep sending in your requests for bags, we have plenty more, and we will get them home to you! This fundraiser will go till the end of the school year. Thank you!!


The Knight Tea – Visit Unbreakable Nutrition located in the 43 Mall in West Sand Lake and purchase our very own tea, “The Knight”. The tea is Blue Razz Lemonade: a mix of Lemon Lime, Blue Raspberry and Lemonade flavors and is offered in caffeine free, or a variety of caffeine levels. $1.00 from every tea purchase will be donated to St. Jude the Apostle School! Get energized and help out our school!


Use of Online Daily Attestation Form ALL families need to complete the online attestation prior to 7am each day to allow us time to download, print and disperse the daily report to all staff members located at school entrances. This will also require ALL parents of drop-off students to accompany their child(ren) to the entrance to show your completed screen to the staff member assigned to your child’s entrance. For siblings, parents/adults will need to take a screen shot of all siblings’ approval screens to be able to show the staff member at the door each day. If multiple adults drop your child(ren) off at school during the week, please share the link or the daily screenshot(s) with that adult doing the drop off. Remember that the screen color changes daily to ensure that we do not admit a child whose attestation has not been submitted. For children who ride buses to school, Miss Larkin will use the printed report to grant entrance to those children.




Registration for 2021-22 – Help us spread the word! We are still accepting students for the 2021/2022 school year. New families may register through our school website: www.stjudetheapostleschool.org. We have limited availability in all grade levels, and classes are filling up quickly. Don’t forget . . . any current family that refers a new family receives a $500 tuition refund in January.


Please make sure your child/children are coming to school with a clean mask on. Please wash

masks nightly. If they come to school with a dirty mask they will be given a paper mask.            


Reminder for Drop-off & Pick-up Families – When dropping off students in the morning, cars may not park on either side of Dana Avenue (in front of school). Cars that do so are blocking a fire lane and blocking traffic. ALL cars must park in the school parking lot, and parents must exit their vehicles to accompany their children to their assigned entrances. For families that pick-up students at dismissal, you must loop through the school parking lot and exit back out Dana Avenue toward Hidley Rd. Ext. YOU CANNOT PASS BUSES WAITING TO BOARD STUDENTS NEAR THE CHURCH!!! Doing so is against the law and North Greenbush police have received complaints of our families violating this law during dismissal. Please comply with procedure for the safety of all of our students and staff!


Health Office Update 5/21/21 – Health Office – For the end of the year class parties, please be mindful of our “Nut Free” classrooms.  Please do not send in any items containing nuts if your child is in one of these classrooms.

Emails have been sent to the parents regarding the immunizations required for students entering grades 6 & 7 in the fall.  Please let me know if you need that form resent.

The NYS student health forms have changed for 2020.  Grades that need physicals for next year (2021-2022) are students entering PK, K, 1, 3, 5, 7 and new students to St Jude’s. Let me know if you need the form.

The end of the school year is quickly approaching!   All unused medications must be picked up by the end of the school year.  Unless your child has current permission by their provider to self-carry their medication, the school cannot allow your child to bring the medication home on the bus.  If you need to make special arrangements to pick up medication, please call to make those arrangements.  Medications not picked up, will be discarded by the nurse on June 23.

Guidelines and protocols for NYS change often. Please refer to this website for up to date information www.governor.ny.gov .

Please call or email me if you have any questions or concerns 518-283-0333 bvermilya@stjudetheapostleschool.org .
