The 2020-2021 academic year
Classes began  on August 24, with a two-week period of virtual learning. On-campus classes begin on September 8. Beginning December 1, following the Thanksgiving break, the school will return to a virtual learning model through December 18 when the holiday break begins. The second semester schedule will be evaluated later this fall and families will be notified of plans in early November.

Visitors on campus
For the health and safety of our school community, visitors to campus are being limited. Visitors must have a scheduled appointment and complete the school's campus access screening form 24 hours in advance of arriving on campus. In keeping with Saint Mary's health protocols, visitors must wear a mask/face covering and maintain social distancing while on our campus.

Administrative offices:
Saint Mary's School continues its phased-in reopening process after the closing of the campus in March 2020. With the start of on-campus classes, faculty and other employees essential to school operations are working at school in compliance with campus health and safety protocols. Some administrative staff continue to work from home to minimize potential COVID-19 exposures on campus. Here is a link to our online faculty/staff directory to assist you in contacting our faculty and staff.  

With the health and safety of our community our first priority, Saint Mary's continues to closely monitor COVID-19 developments and make plans in accordance with guidance provided by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS).
