Monday Morning Memo

St. Mary of the Assumption School

February 21, 2022

Note from the Acting Principal

Happy Monday!


I hope you had a wonderful weekend!


The March Hot Lunch order went out today in a separate email. It is due Saturday, February 26th. If you already ordered for your child for the entire school year, please do not fill it out.


The Catholic Schools Office released guidance on Thursday that the mask mandate is lifted in all Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Washington starting this week. Please speak to your child about your expectations for them while they are at school. Teachers will not be giving reminders about masks since they are no longer mandatory.


Friday, February 25th is a 12:30 PM dismissal day. Extended Care is offered. No lunch will be served.


Have a blessed week!

Mrs. Hannah Ruckstuhl
