Friday Update – January 14, 2022

Dear St. Matthew’s Elementary School Families,
This week we welcomed back most students and it was wonderful to see them!  I was very proud of how diligent your children were with wearing their masks and washing and sanitizing their hands.  Only a few reminders were needed!  Your children are true troopers and you have trained them well:)Thank you for your support;  we truly appreciate it.

A friendly reminder:  the masks your children wear should fit properly.  Please note that it is now recommended that well-fitted 3-ply masks are worn.

Let’s continue to pray in a spirit of courage for an end to this pandemic and for the safety and health of our community.

Sincerely in Christ,
Miss Welsh


Proclaim His marvelous deeds to all the nations.
