Week #30 of the Academic year is upon us! Monday – Friday, March 22nd – 26th is spring break, a well timed and well deserved time of rest and relaxation for students and teachers. We are grateful to God for our safety, health and wellbeing and the opportunity to take a break from the daily routines of the school year. We hope and pray that all students return to the Ledge safe and healthy on Monday, March 29th.
SKYWARD ACCESS FOR QUARTER 3 GRADES
Skyward access for families will reopen at 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 19th after Quarter 3 grades are verified. After that time, parents, guardians and students may once again access Skyward to print a Quarter 3 Report Card.
Prom for juniors and seniors is scheduled for Saturday, April 24th from 8:00 – 11:00 p.m. at Whispering Springs Golf Club at 380 Whispering Springs Dr, Fond du Lac, WI 54937. Of course, we are gratified to be able to offer and plan this event! Due to COVID-19 restrictions, however, SMSA will be sponsoring Prom as a dance event only this year. Therefore, Prom 2021 will not include Mass, a traditional on-site meal, or post-prom activities.
SMSA parents may be taking steps to support some form of post-prom planning (not an official school event). More information will be shared with families in the weeks ahead.
Tickets for the school sponsored dance event will be sold for $15.00 each. Students may purchase Prom tickets during lunch at school from Thursday – Friday, April 8th – 15th. PA announcements will remind students of ticket sales.
Guests of SMSA juniors and seniors may be permitted to attend Prom under the following conditions:
1) they are enrolled in high school (administration may grant exceptions for students under the age of 21);
2) an SMSA student purchases the guest ticket;
3) an approved (authorized by Mr. Krueger) SMSA Guest Dance Form is presented at the time of Prom ticket purchase.
SMSA freshmen and sophomore students may attend when accompanying a junior or senior Ledger.
Since Whispering Springs enforces a capacity limit due to COVID-19 health restrictions, should ticket limits be reached, administration reserves the right to review and prioritize the attendance of SMSA students over non SMSA guests.
While attending Prom at Whispering Springs, everyone shall be required to properly wear masks (covering nose and mouth). We recognize that social distancing practices may not be possible, which underscores the importance of mask wearing at this indoor large group event. The Fond du Lac County Health Department will still require SMSA to contact trace the event in the event of a positive case of COVID-19. Students or guests who do not comply with masking expectations at prom will be asked to leave the dance. No refunds will be provided.
Our Lady of the Ledge, pray for us!
Be well, God bless.
Eamonn O’Keeffe, Principal Grades 9-12
