Monday Morning Memo
St. Mary of the Assumption School
March 15, 2021
Note from the Principal
Saturday marked one year since St. Mary of the Assumption pivoted from full on-campus learning to virtual instruction with less than two days notice. Our teachers, students, and families have showed ingenuity, flexibility, positivity, and love for each other over the past year in ways that we previously could not have imagined. We are so grateful for this community as we remain socially distant but together in faith.
Our Phase II reopening plan is almost ready for distribution. Please note that we have changed March 29th-31st to asynchronous learning days for K-8 to enable teachers to set up their classrooms and participate in professional development. We are very excited to welcome some of our students back to campus soon!
