Dear Parents and Guardians,
Governor Evers spoke to us about the importance of unifying to win against COVID-19. Please continue to lean in with us to keep students learning in person at SMSA. We need your partnership outside our walls to mitigate risk and keep as many students on the Ledge as possible. I’m so proud of our teachers and staff for the job they are doing to create a learning environment for the 2020-2021 school year. They are a fabulous team to work with at SMSA. Thank you for journeying with us.
I appreciate families being mindful of the greater community as they decide when and when not to send their child/children to school. Please keep in mind the ripple effect as we travel through this school year.
