News and Information

New! COVID-19 "Planning Page" on Website.

Our families spoke and we listened! In an effort to keep all COVID-19 related resources in one place, we have created a special page on our SMSA website. “Life on the Ledge COVID-19 Planning for 2020-2021” can be found on our home page by scrolling down about halfway, under the header “Ledger Happenings.” The top left box, in green, is a link to this page. For your convenience, this page can also be found by typing in (lotl = Life othe Ledge), or by visiting the eLedger and clicking on the link under the “featured” tab. We hope you find this web page helpful! The pandemic is a fluid situation, so as information changes, we will regularly update this page and encourage you to check back for updates.
In a System communication sent last week Friday, we mentioned that we will not be communicating each time a positive case is identified on the Ledge. We will only communicate to those with direct exposure. However, we made note that you should expect a weekly dashboard update containing information pertinent to the pandemic in our Springs community. A link to that dashboard is now housed on the “Life on the Ledge COVID-19 Planning 2020-2021” page and will be updated each week in conjunction with the release of the weekly eLedger.
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

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 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.
