Thanksgiving at SMLS

Here at SMLS we are THANKFUL for many things this year as we get ready for the Thanksgiving Holiday. The Food Drive for St. Vincent DePaul was a BIG success and the SVDP van was filled to the brim with all of the food donations the students brought in last week. Thank you for your generosity. Students will participate in a Mass of Thanksgiving on Wednesday, November 25th.

If your family is traveling out of state over the Thanksgiving Holiday, please be mindful of the need to quarantine at home for 14 days after traveling to certain states. Please see link below for states on the NJ Travel Advisory List. Please complete a Preplanned Absence Form if you are traveling and your child will need to be placed on Remote Instruction while quarantining. This form can be found on the SMLS website under Student Life/Attendance.
