The month of November is almost over, and we are very happy that three months into the school year, we are still COVID-19 free. This is thanks to extensive cleaning and sanitizations as well as wearing protective masks. UMCA is doing all it can to protect its students and staff. We ask all parents to keep reminding students the importance of always wearing masks, keeping social distance, and washing hands. We all have elderly parents or grandparents, that we wish to protect, as well as students with asthma who are at a higher risk if infected. Let's all work together to protect each and every student and staff member and keep our school COVID-free. We ask parents to avoid birthday parties with many participants, sleepovers, and playdates.  

UMCA wishes you all a wonderful weekend!
