Monday Morning Memo
St. Mary of the Assumption School
August 30, 2021
Note from the Principal
We are blessed and privileged to be welcoming our students back on campus, beginning with a meet and greet this afternoon from 1-3 p.m. Please see below for details on where to park, where to enter, and what time to arrive. As a reminder, we are doing our best to provide this opportunity for parents to come into the school building for photos, but the safety of our community is still paramount. Please limit your time in each child's classroom to 5-10 minutes at most. If you wish to speak with your child's teachers about any questions or concerns that should be given the attention of a longer conversation, please reach out to schedule a meeting at a different time.
Also in this email are details on arrival and dismissal procedures. SMA prides ourselves on being efficient in carline, however, the first week is always a learning experience for new parents and students, so your patience is appreciated. If you are a new parent, please be ready with a photo ID so we can confirm that you are an authorized pick-up person for your child. As we learn all the new faces in the first few weeks, dismissal will get faster and faster!
I look forward to seeing you this afternoon!
