Dear Parents and Guardians,
The Archdiocese of Seattle has written a letter to all Principals and Pastors regarding the closure of schools during the Corona Virus spread. After much consultation with public health, CDC, local government, and Archbishop Etienne it has been decided Catholic schools will also close. If a school is in a district which has closed we are also asked to close.
Per Governor Inslee's announcement schools in Washington State are closed until April 24.
St. Mark Parish School is closed as part of our combined effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
Please check the website for assignments daily. All school homework should be put into a folder to be turned into their teacher upon return on Monday, April 27. The completion of the homework is mandatory for the students. The time away from school will not need to be made up if the work is complete. Please be diligent about checking the website and completing schoolwork.

I continue to pray for the protection of those most vulnerable and for patience through this time of uncertainty. You are all in my prayers. I do plan on coming to school on most days so if you have a question or concern please call or email.
