UNIFORM INFORMATION FOR SCHOOLS
SUMMER 2020

WE ARE NOW SHIPPING (for free!)
First and foremost, we are excited to announce that we have begun shipping online and phone orders from our Philadelphia distribution center!  Please note that delivery times will be delayed as we work back up to full operational capacity.  FlynnO’Hara will continue to offer Free Shipping on all online and phone orders as long as our stores remain closed.

RETAIL STORE UPDATES
As of now, all 34 of our retail stores remain closed; we do not anticipate any locations opening to the public until mid-June at the earliest.  Reopening dates will be determined on a state-by-state basis according to local guidelines, along with an internal company evaluation of safety and readiness.  We are doing everything in our power to resume normal business operations as soon as we can, but we will not reopen our stores to foot traffic until we are confident that the proper measures are in-place, and that our staff is trained to ensure the safety of both customers & employees.

At the very least, we know that when we reopen, it will be with reduced capacity and highly modified in-store processes (for example, most stores will only be able to accommodate a fraction of normal foot traffic, and it’s unlikely that it will be safe for customers to try on products for size).  As such, it is critical that we encourage families to shop online if they can, and to shop earlier in the season to avoid an August rush.  We are asking for your support in relaying this message to school families.

DISCOUNTING
In order to relieve some of the financial burden of back-to-school shopping, FlynnO’Hara will be offering discounts ranging from 5%-20% off during the months of May, June & July.  These discounts will be offered online only and will be tiered in order to incentivize customers to shop early, and to shop online

If you haven’t done so already, please make sure to encourage your incoming families to opt-into our FlynnO’Hara emails & follow us on social media by sharing the attached flyer.  We will begin releasing discount information within the coming weeks; the earlier families shop, the more they’ll save!

 SHOPPING-IN-PLACE
After 50 years in business, and almost two decades of ecommerce, we know the reasons why some families prefer in-store shopping to ordering online, namely: sizing concerns, shipping costs, discomfort navigating online, and an inability to receive packages to their homes.  Knowing that remote shopping will be the safest options for families this summer, we’ve implemented the following initiatives to these address customer concerns:

FOR THE CUSTOMER CONCERNED ABOUT SIZING: AT-HOME MEASURING RESOURCES
One of the biggest challenges our customers face in shopping online is how to choose the right sizes for their child. So, we’ve developed the following measuring resources to help parents make accurate, informed decisions from home:

    • At-Home Measuring Tutorial: This short video shows parents how to measure their child for his / her clothing dimensions using either a soft measuring tape or a piece of string. The video then offers guidance on where to find – and how to use – FlynnO’Hara’s size charts to choose the right garment sizes for each of our uniform products!  These videos will be live on our website early next week; in the meantime, view Our girls video HERE!
    • At-Home Measuring Kit: Parents who don’t already have a measuring tape at home can easily order an at-home measuring kit from our website.  The kit is free and will arrive at their doorstep in just a few days!  The order form for this kit will be available on our site early next week.
    • Size Charts: Finally, each uniform item at Flynnohara.com now has a product-specific size chart linked beneath the website product listing for parent reference.
    • Please note: These resources will live on our website, but we will be sharing them with families via email and our social media accounts as they become available.  Once again, it’s important that families opt-into our emails and follow us on social to stay in the loop!

FOR THE CUSTOMER WHO PREFERS A PERSONAL TOUCH: OUR PHONE LINES ARE OPEN!
For customers who prefer a personal touch or are uncomfortable navigating our ecommerce platform, our customer service team is available Monday-Friday from 9AM-5PM to take orders over the phone.  These hours will be expanding to evenings and weekends as we move back into the summer season. Up-to-date customer service hours can be found HERE.  Please note, discounts will be applied to phone orders!

 

FOR THE CUSTOMER WHO CAN’T SHIP HOME: BUY-ONLINE PICK-UP IN-STORE
For customers who have trouble receiving deliveries at home, FlynnO’Hara will be offering the option to buy online and pick-up orders at one of our local stores.  Although our stores are currently closed, it’s likely that this in-store pick-up option will become available to families before our stores reopen to foot traffic.  We will communicate directly with schools and customers as soon as we activate this option, which will be available to choose as a shipping method at check-out on our ecommerce site.

 

FOR THE CUSTOMER CONCERNED ABOUT ADDED FEES: FREE SHIPPING!
As outlined above, while our stores remain closed, FlynnO’Hara is offering free shipping on all online and phone orders with promotion code FREESHIP.  Once our stores reopen their doors, we will continue to offer free shipping over a minimum order value threshold.

 

RETURN & EXCHANGE, SCHOOL-YEAR WARRANTY
Our sincere hope is that our generous product warranty and return policy will provide some peace of mind to families shopping earlier this year.  As always, FlynnO’Hara will accept returns / exchanges on any unworn products (with tags) up to one year from their date of purchase.  Additionally, our school year guarantee remains in effect: if families aren’t satisfied with the way their uniforms are holding up, we’ll replace them up to one year from the date of purchase – no questions asked!

Distance Learning Survey

Distance Learning is a new experience for all of us. Your input and insights are important and will help develop the instructional plan while school is closed. Please fill this out anytime and multiple times and don’t hesitate to reach out to your teacher. Thank you in advance for completing this form.

Please select the survey in the following languages:

Principal’s Message for the Week of May 11

I hope all mothers had a good Mother’s Day weekend. We call on our Blessed Mother for her protection and guidance for our school and for our country.

On Friday all Progress Reports were available on Option C. If you are unable to receive the report on Option C please contact the classroom teacher and we will email you a copy. If we can answer any questions about your child’s progress so far this trimester, please reach out to the teacher and me as well with your concerns.

Last week I was able to meet with parents from grades 2-8 each week night. This week I will conclude the parent meetings for grades 1 and kindergarten.  On Wednesday, we will ask parents to take a survey in technology so that we may go forward with planning off site, distance learning. The survey will be in English, Spanish, and Mandarin. Please be honest in answering this survey as we only see the instruction from our point of view and we need parent input as we move forward.

A few reminders: 

  • The Relief Fund deadline is this Friday, May 15th This one time assistance is being offered by the Diocese of Brooklyn for parents who have lost their jobs and are having difficulty paying the remainder of the tuition.
  • Financial Aid for September 2020 applications are still being accepted until May 31st.

Statement by the Superintendent Regarding the Remainder of the School Year

Diocese of Brooklyn Symbol

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 1, 2020

Statement by Superintendent of Brooklyn and Queens Catholic Schools Regarding Remainder of 2019-2020 School Year

          Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, Superintendent of Schools for the Diocese of Brooklyn, which includes all elementary Catholic academies and schools in Brooklyn and Queens, has issued the following statement following Governor Cuomo’s school closure announcement:

          “We just learned of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s decision that all elementary and secondary schools shall remain closed for the duration of the current 2019-2020 school year, as New York continues efforts to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. As such, the Catholic academies and parish schools within the Diocese of Brooklyn, which includes Queens, will remain closed through the end of June. The distance and digital learning platforms in place will serve as the instructional program for our schools for the remainder of this academic year.

          I am very proud of our schools and academies, who were successfully able to transition to a distance and digital learning platform almost immediately upon our school buildings being shut down. This would not have been possible without the hard work of our teachers and the leadership of our dedicated principals, who rose to this enormous challenge. Our Catholic schools and academies have continued to provide each of our students with a faith-based academic program, ensuring that they are being challenged to learn every day. Our parents have also contributed immeasurably to the success of this new digital learning environment.

          We will be working with our principals and teachers to ensure that our milestone celebrations (graduations, step-up ceremonies, and other achievements) will be honored and recognized. As we have done so far during this pandemic, we will continue to assemble and share resources for our families as we confront this challenging end to the school year.

          The Coronavirus statistics indicate that both Brooklyn and Queens have been the hardest-hit areas in New York City and State. As a Catholic school community in the epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to pray for everyone’s health and safety. Our faith, love, and hope remain central to all we do now and in the future.”


PARA PUBLICACIÓN INMEDIATA: 1 de mayo del 2020

Declaración del superintendente de las escuelas católicas de Brooklyn y Queens sobre el resto del año escolar 2019-2020

          El Dr. Thomas Chadzutko, Superintendente de Escuelas de la Diócesis de Brooklyn, que incluye todas las academias y escuelas católicas de primaria en Brooklyn y Queens, emitió la siguiente declaración después del anuncio de cierre de la escuela del Gobernador Cuomo:

          “Acabamos de enterarnos de la decisión del gobernador Andrew M. Cuomo de que todas las escuelas primarias y secundarias permanecerán cerradas durante el año escolar actual 2019-2020, mientras Nueva York continúa los esfuerzos para prevenir la propagación del coronavirus. Como tal, las academias católicas y las escuelas parroquiales dentro de la Diócesis de Brooklyn, que incluye Queens, permanecerán cerradas hasta finales de junio. Las plataformas de aprendizaje a distancia y digital en el lugar servirán como el programa de instrucción para nuestras escuelas por el resto de este año académico.

          Estoy muy orgulloso de nuestras escuelas y academias, que pudieron realizar una transición exitosa a una plataforma de aprendizaje digital y a distancia casi de inmediato al cerrar nuestros edificios escolares. Esto no hubiera sido posible sin el arduo trabajo de nuestros maestros y el liderazgo de nuestros directores dedicados, quienes estuvieron a la altura de este enorme desafío. Nuestras escuelas y academias católicas han continuado brindando a cada uno de nuestros estudiantes un programa académico basado en la fe, asegurando que estén siendo desafiados a aprender todos los días. Nuestros padres también han contribuido enormemente al éxito de este nuevo entorno de aprendizaje digital.

          Trabajaremos con nuestros directores y maestros para garantizar que nuestras celebraciones históricas (graduaciones, ceremonias de graduación y otros logros) sean honradas y reconocidas. Como lo hemos hecho hasta ahora durante esta pandemia, continuaremos reuniendo y compartiendo recursos para nuestras familias a medida que nos enfrentamos a este desafiante final del año escolar.

          Las estadísticas de Coronavirus indican que tanto Brooklyn como Queens han sido las áreas más afectadas en la ciudad y el estado de Nueva York. Como comunidad escolar católica en el epicentro de la pandemia de COVID-19, seguimos orando por la salud y la seguridad de todos. Nuestra fe, amor y esperanza siguen siendo fundamentales para todo lo que hacemos ahora y en el futuro “.


即时发布:2020年5月1日

来自布鲁克林教区天主教学校部负责人,关于2019-2020学年余下学年的安排通知:

布鲁克林教区学校部负责人Dr. Thomas Chadzutko在州长Andrew M.Cuomo宣布关闭学校后,发表了以下声明:(此声明适用于布鲁克林和皇后区的所有天主教学校和堂区学校)

“我们刚刚得知州长Andrew M. Cuomo的决定,因为纽约将继续努力防止病毒(COVID19)扩散,所有中小学在目前2019-2020学年期间将关闭。因此,布鲁克林教区(包括皇后区)内的天主教学校和堂区学校将一直关闭至6月底。在本学年剩下的日子里,都将继续使用远程教学和网络学习平台来进行我们学校的教学。

我为我们的学校感到自豪,他们能够在我们的学校关闭后,立即成功过渡到远程教学和网络学习平台。如果没有我们的校长和老师们的辛勤工作和敬业,这将是不可能的,他们迎接了巨大的挑战。我们的天主教学校和堂区学校继续为每个学生提供基于天主教教育的教学计划,以确保他们每天都有学到的新知识。我们的家长也为这种新型网络学习的成功做出了不可估量的支持。

我们将与校长和老师们合作,​​以确保我们的孩子们在人生中重要时刻的庆祝活动(例如:毕业,升学典礼等)都会被授予和认可。正如疫情爆发迄今所做的那样,我们将继续为我们的家庭收集和分享资源。直到这充满挑战的一学年圆满结束。
 
冠状病毒的统计数据表明,布鲁克林区和皇后区都是纽约市和州重灾区。作为身处该区天主教学校社区,我们继续为所有人的健康和安全祈祷。我们的信德,爱德和望德仍是我们现在和将来所做的一切的核心。”

Food Pantry

We are looking for St. Michael’s Catholic Academy families who are possibly having trouble feeding their families. St. Michael’s Parish Food Pantry is distributing food to those who need it by appointment only. Food can only be distributed outside the rectory and naturally when it is not raining. If interested please contact your child’s homeroom teacher or Mrs. Rogone

Message from Mrs. Rogone – Week of April 27

English | Spanish | 4月27日

Message for the week of April 27

This past week we began Title I Services in ESL, Reading and Math. Please contact the teachers or myself if your child needs to join in on the sessions. As of now we have all services available to students since March 13-face to face classes, Title I, speech, SETSS, and OT.

We have not been in school since March 13.  Teachers have been contacted by parents asking about when we return and the summer program. According to the Superintendent’s letter from last week, the EARLIEST we can return is May 18th although that is not definite either. We must remain in compliance with the Diocese, City, and State.

Since March 13th, the building has been sanitized and no one has been permitted in the school building. Maintenance is in to check on the burner, pipes, and the building.

We welcome new families to our school for September. We are taking registrations from our website and our FB activity. I encourage our families to re-register for next year as the Board of Directors has extended the 5% discount rate until May 30th.

If you have not done so please apply for Financial Aid . The deadline is quickly approaching.  If you lost your job due to the virus, there is an Emergency Relief Fund supported by the Diocese. This deadline is approaching also. Contact Ms. Janett, Sr. Bin Lin or me to assist you in this application.

Each Friday the faculty is required to meet (although we meet throughout the week also) and participate in professional development classes. Our school year has changed and what we do now is planning for the future in adapting apps which will help in our distance learning.

So on Friday I encourage parents to have their children participate in Music and Physical Education classes which are posted for all to use.  Please use Friday when the teachers are in training to catch up on work, participate in Music and Physical Education.

Contact me at any time or the classroom teachers. I am grateful for the time and hard work the teachers have shown to assist students over the past five weeks.  We are here to support and work with all families. We miss you and you and your families are in our daily prayers.

Have a good week.


Mensaje para la semana del 27 de abril

La semana pasada comenzamos los Servicios del Title I en ESL, Lectura y Matemáticas. Por favor comuníquese con los maestros o conmigo si su hijo/a necesita unirse a las sesiones. A partir de ahora tenemos todos los servicios disponibles para los estudiantes desde el 13 de marzo- clases en línea, Title I, Speech, SETSS y OT. 

No hemos estado en la escuela desde el 13 de marzo. Los padres han contactado a los maestros para preguntarles cuándo regresamos y el programa de verano. Según la carta del Superintendente de la semana pasada, lo más temprano que podemos regresar es el 18 de mayo, aunque eso tampoco es definitivo. Debemos cumplir con la Diócesis, la Ciudad y el Estado. 

Desde el 13 de marzo, el edificio ha sido desinfectado y nadie ha sido permitido en el edificio de la escuela. Se realiza mantenimiento para verificar el quemador, las tuberías y el edificio. 

Damos la bienvenida a nuevas familias a nuestra escuela para septiembre. Estamos tomando registraciones en nuestro sitio web y nuestra actividad de FB. Animo a nuestras familias a volver a registrarse para el próximo año escolar, ya que la Junta Directiva ha extendido la tasa de descuento del 5% hasta el 30 de mayo. Si no lo ha hecho, solicite ayuda financiera. La fecha límite se acerca rápidamente. Si perdió su trabajo debido al virus, existe un Fondo de Ayuda de Emergencia respaldado por la Diócesis. Este plazo también se acerca. Póngase en contacto con Ms. Janett, Sr. Bin Lin o conmigo para ayudarle con esta aplicación. 

Todos los viernes se requiere que la facultad se reúna (aunque también nos reunimos durante la semana) y participe en clases de desarrollo profesional. Nuestro año escolar ha cambiado y lo que hacemos ahora es planificar para el futuro adaptando aplicaciones que ayudarán en nuestro aprendizaje a distancia. 

Así que el viernes animo a los padres a que sus hijos participen en las clases de Música y Educación Física que se publican para que todos puedan usar. Utilice el viernes cuando los maestros estén en estas juntas para ponerse al día con el trabajo, participar en Música y Educación Física. 

Contácteme en cualquier momento o con los maestros de clase. Estoy agradecida por el tiempo y el arduo trabajo que los maestros han demostrado para ayudar a los estudiantes durante las últimas cinco semanas. Estamos aquí para apoyar y trabajar con todas las familias. Te extrañamos a ti y sus familias están en nuestras oraciones diarias. Que tengan una buena semana.


4月27日 — 本周来自校长的信


在过去的一周中,我们开始了ESL(英语第二门语言),阅读和数学的Title I服务。如果您的孩子之前有接受这些教学服务,请与老师或我本人联系。自3月13日以来,我们现已为学生提供所有教学服务,包括直播课,Title I,语言矫正(speech),SETSS和OT。

自3月13日起,我们就再也没有在学校里上过课。有家长询问老师,我们何时能返校并且是否有暑期课程。根据教区学校主管人员上周的来信,我们最早返校的日期是5月18日(周一),并且也是不确定的。我们必须遵守教区,州和市的规定。

自3月13日以来,我们学校的教学楼已被消毒过,并且没有人被允许进入教学楼。只允许维护人员进入检查供暖设备,管道和楼道安全。

我们欢迎的新学生9月份入读我们学校。我们可以通过我们的学校网站和FB(脸书)接受注册登记。我鼓励我们的学生家长为下个学年重新注册,因为董事会已将5%的优惠延长至5月30日。

如果您还没有申请助学金,请尽快申请,截止日期将至。如果您因疫情而失业,则可以申请教区支持的紧急(学费)救济金。这个截止日期也临近。请与Ms. Janett,Sr. Mary (Bin Lin)或我联系,以协助您完成此申请。

我们每星期五都要求教职人员开会(尽管我们一周平时也开会)并参加教师专业发展培训。本学年已发生改变,我们为日后更好的教学,正在应用更好软件来提高我们的远程教学效果。

因此,在星期五,我鼓励家长让孩子参加音乐和体育课,这些课内容已在网站上发布。请利用星期五教师接受培训时,让孩子们参加音乐和体育课。

随时与我或班主任联系。我非常感谢老师在过去的五个星期内为帮助学生而付出辛勤工作。我们在这里为所有家庭提供帮助和服务。我们想念您,每天我们都会为您和您家人祈祷。

祝您有个愉快的一周。
