Happy Friday, SMCS Families!

Report cards will be issued Tuesday, March 23rd.  Please review the card and If you have any questions, comments, concerns, please contact the teacher of the subject in question.  Thank you.   

SMCS has been blessed to remain open with face-to-face instruction since August!  We are certainly praying we continue through spring break (through the end of the year!).  As a gentle reminder to all of us, the following is still in place: any SMCS family choosing to travel during the pandemic, upon returning home, will need to keep their children out of school for an additional 3-5 school days to monitor for Covid-19 symptoms.  If during the 3-5 days after returning home signs/symptoms of Covid-19 develop, students are to remain at home and the family should seek advice from the Chippewa County Health Department and/or seek testing.
 
A week from today we have another half day.  March 26th brings the beginning of our spring break, with a staggered dismissal from 10:30-11:00 a.m. 

Great News!  After spring break, Preschool-3rd grade will begin attending Mass. 

 Have a great weekend, everyone!
