Newsletter January 11 – January 15, 2021


Mission Statement: The mission of St. Malachy’s Memorial High School is to create an environment in which students excel academically and to provide a safe and supportive community which encourages growth and contribution to the larger community.

Vision Statement: St. Malachy’s Memorial High School is committed to educating the whole person.  Through a rigorous and comprehensive program of studies we prepare students academically, socially and morally to assume their places as conscientious, involved and contributing members of society.


It was great to see everyone this week.  Even with the phase change to “orange”, students did well with their attendance on in school days. The attendance schedule for January is posted to our schools’ website.  We have two weeks of classes leading up to assessment week.  The assessment week schedule was distributed to students prior to the Christmas break and can also be found on our website.  It is very important that we have strong attendance leading up to the end of first semester and final assessments.  Students should be looking to submit any missing assignments as soon as possible.


** Clarification with regards to the Student Attendance Schedule in the event of a snow day**.  In the event of a snow day the schedule will shift forward.  For example, if we had a snow day on Wednesday January 13th, the A – K group would come to school the next day, Thursday January 14th. The L - Z group would then come Friday January 15th.  This would move all subsequent days forward.  If this should happen, we will send out a revised attendance calendar.


If we do have a snow day prior to Assessment Week, that schedule will not be altered and will begin as scheduled.
