Dear St. Mary’s Parents, I hope you all are well! I would like to take this time to provide an update in regards to Tuesday’s storm, as well as to share the good news that we will be able to return to School on Monday, May 13th! On Tuesday night, St. Mary’s School sustained damage to the roof of the building as a result of the high winds from the storm. The School notified the Archdiocese of Cincinnati of the damage and began cooperating with assessor’s to evaluate the extent of this damage. School administration also met with the Catholic School’s Office to develop a plan that would serve the best interests of our school family. Because student safety is of the upmost importance, part of this evaluation involved a safety inspection of the building with a structural engineer. After conducting this inspection, the engineer determined that the building remains structurally sound and safe, though the roof sustained damage which will require a roof replacement this summer. The engineer determined that the building was safe for students to resume classes and that we will be able to complete the school year . Out of an abundance of caution, St. Mary’s has implemented the following measures to ensure the greatest safety for our students per the recommendations of the engineer. ● Fencing has been erected to block off access to areas where possible loose debris could fall and pose a potential risk to pedestrians. We will utilize the main entrance for pick-up and drop off as usual but we ask that students do not linger in the parking lot near the fencing. ● The religion and the kindergarten classrooms will be relocated to other areas of the building. A temporary kindergarten classroom has been set up in the cafeteria. ● Outdoor recess will be held on the playground only. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at twiedenmann@smsgvl.com. Due to the interruptions of the storm, St. Mary’s School will reassign the I-Ready assessments to provide the best opportunity for St. Mary’s students to be as successful as possible. Testing will be held Wednesday and Thursday of this week. St. Mary’s School is excited to wrap up the school year together. We are grateful for the community’s support and patience as we took the necessary steps to ensure student safety and to return to school as soon as possible. God Bless, Tim Wiedenmann
