Last Day of School Changed to May 15

Due to the generosity of parishioners, alumni, and friends of SMC, we are going to be able to replace the roof on the high school building.  This is a major project that has needed to be done for several years.  It will involve extensive demolition and construction.  To insure the safety of the high school, junior high, and elementary students and staff, we will be dismissing school a week early.  The last day of school for PreK-12 for the current school year will be Friday, May 15.  We will still conclude the year, as usual, with an all-school Mass.  Adjusted finals schedules and elementary and junior high events will be published on the school website at a later date.  High school graduation will still take place on Wednesday, May 13.
