Picking up your child from school?
Please leave the spaces between the playground and Rectory on the school side of the street OPEN for buses. It is a safety and congestion concern to have cars directly on the school side at dismissal. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
A Message from our Library

Our school librarian, Mrs. Polovich, has curated a list of books to support students' mental health, character building and socio-emotional learning. We currently have many of the books listed in our school library.
Should you want to borrow one, email her at MPolovich@saintmarkschool.com

Also, please return any library or school books from the 2019-2020 school year. We are waiving fines for library books from last year, so you may return any books with no penalty!

The NYSDOH has released a COVID-19 Toolkit which includes a decision making chart for student attendance. Per our Reopening Plan, this tool should be used by parents every morning before leaving with their child(ren) for school. It is also on our school website. This does not have to be printed and returned to school; we ask that you use it with your child(ren) at home.
