Good Afternoon SMS Families, We have two announcements today. First, in the interest of safety for our children at play in the parking lot, we will be closing the main school parking lot daily when children are playing or walking in the parking lot. There will be a chain blocking the entrance. If you come to the school between 10:30 and 2:40, and the chain is up, you will need to park on the hill and walk to the office door. Second, we would like to remind you that students may dress up for class Halloween parties on Wednesday, October 26. Please make sure costumes are Catholic school appropriate and will not prevent students from participating in normal school day activities. Have a great weekend!
