The data families submitted for the STMS Alerts has been submitted to the Wayne County Emergency Management System.    Not only will school closings be sent through this system, this system will be used to alert you to other school events.  We had a test run of this system this past week and it was successful.  If you did not submit your info to the school and still want to be part of this group, you can register by going to http://entry.inspironlogistics.com/stmaryschool_oh/wens.cfm.  This link will be available on the school website under the parent tab. 

Update to St. Mary School Uniform Policy:  Hoodies with the St. Mary School logo can now be worn in the classroom.  These can be those purchased through the fall spirit wear sale or those now available through our online spirit wear store (link available on the school website under the parent tab).  These are the ONLYhoodies that can be worn in the classroom.
