News and Information

COVID-19 Resource Page on Website

Our website now has direct access to the COVID-19 “planning page,” by clicking the COVID-19 button on the top right corner of the homepage! As a reminder, this page houses all COVID-19 related resources, including the “COVID-19 Reporting Form” that you are to use to report if your child(ren) feels ill with COVID-19 symptoms, is being tested, or has been exposed outside of school. This page also houses our weekly dashboard numbers update and the Exposure & Symptoms Flow Chart, which guides families through response protocols if your child(ren) feels sick or has been in close contact with a confirmed case.

The pandemic is a fluid situation, so as information changes, we will regularly update this page and encourage you to check back for updates.

If there is something else that would be helpful to have housed on this page, let us know, we are all ears! Contact Chelsea McKay, Marketing Coordinator, at cmckay@smsacademy.org.

Extension of the COVID-19 Federally Funded Relief Package “Seamless Summer Lunch Program” for Kindergarten - 12th Grade

St. Mary’s Springs Academy is excited to announce our students (on the Ledge and Virtual) will take part in the USDA’s extension of the Summer Lunch Program.  This Federally Funded Program provides each student a Full Lunch at no charge!  The program will go into effect tomorrow, Friday, September 18, 2020 on the Ledge, and will expire Thursday, December 31, 2020 or until federal funds are no longer available.  If your child(ren) has taken a hot lunch since August 26, 2020, your school account will be credited the total amount spent for a Full Lunch.

 

This Federally Funded Program is an “all in” support, meaning every single student will be granted a Full Lunch at no charge.  If you prayerfully choose to still “pay” for a lunch, donations are welcome in lieu of a Full Meal charge.  Contact Kristin Zitlow at kzitlow@smsacademy.org or 920-322-8006.

 

Please Note:

  • The free lunch covers a Full Lunch.  Any food purchased beyond the Full Lunch will be charged as normal. ie: student adds another slice of pizza to their Full Lunch, student will be charged for extra slice of pizza at the normal rate.
    • Highschool (9-12): one main entreé, milk and up to four sides (fruit and/or vegetables)
    • Elementary (K-8) one main entreé, milk and up to three sides (fruit and/or vegetables) 
  • The free lunch is available to all students in grades K – 12th whether they are learning on the Ledge in person or virtual (see below for information on virtual lunch pick up).
  • Students will still go through the Point of Sale as normal when getting their hot lunch.

 

Questions?  Please contact Mary Karrmann at mkarrmann@smsacademy.org.

Final Call for Clipped Box Tops - Last Day to Bring in October 9th

During this challenging time, our teachers and students need more help than ever. No matter what school looks like, Box Tops for Education is a fast and easy way for you to help out from home.  

 

This is a request for ONE FINAL COLLECTION of clipped Box Tops and to encourage everyone to use the Box Tops app.  The collection form is attached — attached your clipped Box Tops to the sheet — please check to make sure the Box Top has not expired — and bring them back to your home room teacher by Friday, October 9, 2020.  Click here to download the collection form.

 

The Box Tops program has been around for over 20 years, and it really works. In fact, Box Tops for Education has helped give almost a billion dollars to schools since 1996. Over the years SMSA has participated we have received over $52,420! Last year with the clipped Box Tops and families using the Box Tops app we earned $1,442.  

 

The Transition from Clipped to Scanned Box Tops.  In 2019, the program evolved to become digital so that you can earn for your school with just the touch of a button.

 

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Buy participating products and use the Box Tops mobile app to scan your store receipt. The app identifies eligible products and automatically adds Box Tops to your school’s earnings online. Even if you’re shopping online or doing grocery pickup, you can still submit your e-receipts and earn Box Tops. Twice a year, our school gets a check!

 

Your earnings may seem small, but they really do add up. The more people that participate, the bigger the impact we can make. So let’s give our teachers the support they need and help give more kids the opportunity to dream. Little by little, we can help make a big difference.

 

Blessings to all and for a successful year!

 

Sherry Holmes, Box Tops Coordinator
