Corona virus/ influenza update:  We have been monitoring the progress of the corona virus and staying in contact with both the Indiana state health department and recommendations from the CDC-center for disease control. Patients with confirmed COVID-19 infection have reported mild to severe respiratory symptoms, fever, cough and shortness of breath.  In Indiana, the Influenza A and B has been a greater concern and has directly affected SMG students. We will pass on any health updates or new procedures needed to control the virus spread. Our staff members are taking preventative measures to prevent further illness in our school. Parents please remind your student to follow these good hygiene preventative measures:

  • Bring water bottles from home
  • Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Cover cough or sneeze with a tissue and throw the tissue away. We have lots of tissue in all the classrooms
  • Please keep your student home when sick

Tardy/Attendance line
During this busy cold and flu season we have had many absences/ late arrivals and parents forgetting to call in. Please call the nurse attendance line by 9am each morning. Please state your student’s name, teacher, homework request for grades K-5th as needed and reason for absence or late arrival.  You may also email teachers to request homework or email nurses with medical requests or details, but the phone call is the preferred way to report an absence or late arrival.
