Dear Saint Leo the Great School Community,
We are looking for your financial support to help allow Saint Leo the Great School to continue to offer its top tier faith-based education. We plan for a September school re-opening that will be safe and healthy, and one which continues to offer diverse state-of-the-art educational opportunities which will maximize the learning experience for all students. We must turn our attention now to the upcoming school year. It is reasonable to assume we will be living with COVID-19 for the foreseeable future. We cannot allow that reality to diminish all the work and effort put forth by so many to educate our children.
It is vital that our children are welcomed back to a healthy and safe environment for in-person education. Governor Murphy and the New Jersey Department of Education released the “Road Back: Restart and Recovery Plan for Education,” which puts forth guidance that ensures a safe school re-opening. Measurable steps specified in the plan have already been undertaken by us at considerable cost. We now need the support of generous donors like you to continue to make the necessary changes and to help defray earlier costs.
We have established a COVID-19 Relief Fund in order to raise the $425,000 needed for the health and safety of our more than 600 students. Unfortunately, because of the COVID-19 pandemic we were forced to close our school and thus were unable to conduct our traditional fund-raising opportunities. By making a tax-deductible donation to our COVID-19 relief fund, you will be directly contributing to the future of our children. In addition, your generosity as a supporter will be acknowledged on our School web site and on the Classrooms of Tomorrow Donor Recognition Wall located on the second floor in the school.
Below is a brief financial recap of expended funds that were required because of the COVID-19 Pandemic:
- Bathroom Renovations - $115,000
- Plexiglas Desktop Barriers - $50,000
- HVAC Cleaning and Sterilization - $20,000
- HVAC Sterilization System - $100,000
- Video Streaming Equipment - $55,000
- Technology Upgrades - $40,000
- Entry System - $15,000
- Daily Cleaning Service - $30,000
Total Costs - $425,000
Funds raised that exceed the cost of COVID-19 related improvements, will go directly to the following projects:
- Classroom Re-Configurations - $85,000
- HVAC Equipment Upgrades - $150,000
- School Boilers - $75,000
- Preschool Stair Entrance Area - $30,000
