Dear StM Community,
The uncertainty we are facing right now is incredibly difficult.
Tackling simple tasks and living our day-to-day lives is requiring significant amounts of courage, strength, and faith. We hope that you and your family are able to rely on your support system and your extended StM family to help you through this time.
We are saddened to announce that our return to campus will be postponed at least until May 1, based on the new guidance from federal and state authorities. The Spring Break holiday will remain as scheduled, April 10 - 16. Our Episcopal tradition reminds us that Easter is a time for spiritual rebirth and renewal. We hope that you’ll be able to take this time as a family to unwind and refresh your mind, body, and spirit.
Please know that the health, safety, and wellbeing of our school community is our top priority. We hope you continue to let us know when you need any social or emotional support, technology assistance, one-on-one tutoring, or pastoral care.
St. Martin’s Continuity of Learning Plan (distance/online learning) remains robust. Our guiding philosophy with this plan is to maintain realistic expectations of our students while prioritizing their mental wellbeing. Please continue to reach out to the faculty and your division head if you have any concerns or need support.
We will closely monitor official local, state, and federal government communications; consult with health officials; and update you as necessary. As soon as it is safe to reopen our campus, we will.
We can’t thank you enough for your ongoing, extraordinary support and understanding.
Together we are Saints.
