Mrs. Murphy’s Weekly Updates: Here


Mrs. Murphy

For 9th and 10th graders: We need parents to chaperone the upcoming dance on Saturday, February 5 from 7:30 - 10pm. Please ask yours if they are available! Starting on Monday, new COVID guidelines will go into action. Morning Meeting will once again be in the Great Room with all four grades at once! Seating charts will no longer be necessary. We are now able to safely welcome guests to events. Food will also be allowed at clubs and advisory, but please do not eat in the hallways or lounges. A majority of students will now be able to fit in the Dining Hall, and we will make accommodations in the Main Building for everyone else.
