March 16, 2020 ..... the last day of our 2019-2020 school year due to the Covid19 Pandemic.  It seems only right that we return to the classroom 1 day shy of that anniversary.....March 15, 2021.
There are so many people to thank, so many people who we have never met, and so many that are part of our extended Memorial Day School family.
Thank you to our Board of Directors and our Head of School Jennifer Farris for putting in place a system where we could continue to educate our students and to keep them safe and healthy.  Purchasing the needed technology was a surprise, but doing what we need to do is what Memorial Day has always done.
Our faculty members had to learn a whole new way of teaching using on line technology, putting lesson plans "on the cloud", and communicating with their students via zoom and other methods unfamilar to them.  
BUT WE DID IT !!  WE MADE IT !!  And we are stronger and better for it.  
We will celebrate on Monday, March 15th as we open our arms to welcome home our students to 6500 Habersham Street.  We have missed their smiles and the interaction they bring in the classroom.
The worries of the pandemic are not completely over but we can see that "light at the end of the tunnel".  We will continue to pray for everyone's health and safety.  We will continue to be vigilante regarding mask, hand sanitizing, and social distance AND we will celebrate just being with each other.
Now, we can look forward to returning to some of our wonderful Memorial traditions like Junior Ring Ceremony, Prom, Honors Assemblies and, of course, Graduation.
Welcome Home.  Welcome home to a school where family and students truly do matter.

Goodbye 2020..... and HELLO 2021.
We made it through some real tough times ...but we did it together.  At school, we adapted to a new way of learning IN and OUT of the classroom.  Our wonderful faculty and staff learned how to teach using new technology to make the most of "distant learning" - BUT WE DID IT.
We are beginning to see the "light at the end of the tunnel" and we are excited to welcome back our students and family to the second semester beginning January 5, 2021.
With prayers for a return to some normalcy....read a letter from our Head of School Jennifer Farris:

Dear Memorial Family:

I hope you and your families had a joyful Christmas season and are looking forward to the new year.  I am looking forward to the second semester of the school year and want to make sure we begin it as safely as possible.  During the past several weeks our community has seen an increase in COVID-19 cases and they are projected to continue to rise after the holidays with family and friends.  Below you will find some updates and reminders regarding our return to school on Tuesday, January 5th.  As the semester progresses we will continue to monitor COVID-19 in our community and hope to all be back in school together when conditions improve.  Please remember students who are showing any signs of COVID-19 should stay home.  I know working together we will continue to keep everyone safe!

  • Lower School and Middle School students will return with the same policies in place.  Students will continue to be self-contained in their classrooms.  Please read below for changes in lunch options.
  • High school students will come back to school on our Hybrid plan, but with some modifications.  All high school students will come back on the Hybrid plan (last names A-J on Mondays and Wednesdays and last names k - z on Tuesdays and Thursdays) this includes all athletes and students who were coming on other days due to special circumstances.  If your athlete will struggle to make it to practice please contact Coach Helmly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  • We are excited to offer a hot lunch option to our students upon our return to school.  Lunches will be boxed and sent to classrooms each day.  The lunch will include a drink and will cost $5.00.  Please note the first week's menu below.
    • Tuesday, January 5th - Chicken Parmesan over noodles, Italian green beans, and apples  
    • Wednesday, January 6th - BBQ meatballs, mashed potatoes, carrots, and banana pudding
    • Thursday, January 7th - Fish, red rice, peas, and jello with fruit

    • Please note the lunch menu will be sent home for Pre-k - 8th grade each Wednesday and will need to be returned each Friday with payment to order for the following week.  You will receive a lunch form on Tuesday for only next week and will be asked to return it on Wednesday.  High school students will order their lunches during first period each day.

Happy New Year,
Jennifer Farris
Head of School

And so ...... WELCOME BACK, wer are glad you have chosen Memorial Day School for your child's education.

The month of November is half-over and our thoughts turn to those school and family traditions of the holiday season ahead. 

During this time of a national pandemic and to assure that we can do what we can to keep our students safe, Memorial Day School will miss our Thanksgiving Family Feast.

Over the years, we have seen this event grow from a turkey dinner served to our lower school and their families to a full-blown feast for over 400 members of our Memorial Day School family.   Our memories make us even more conscious of what we need to do to stay safe so that we can return to those wonderful events.  Our school administration holds on to the traditions as we continue to monitor the local, state and national guidelines for safe schools during the Covid19 outbreak.

Over the past 3.5 months, our staff and students have cooperated with our rules and we have continued to provide a safe enviornment while education prevails in the classroom.
The month of November also means the end to football season and the beginning of basketball season.  This too gives us an opportunity to share the joy of being with one another during school events, yet again, with a little different atmosphere.  Social distancing, mask ordinances, and limited seating are necessary for all of us to remain safe and to continue to be aware of our current situation.

Doing what is right and doing it together is truly what family is all about AND there is no better family than ours at Memorial Day School.
As the semester draws to a close, we want to take this opporutnity to wish everyone a HEALTHY & HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON.  We love our staff, faculty, students and their family.  When we adopted our new "tag line" last year, the one word resonated throughout our community.  We have even had several other businesses begin to use this single word to express care, to express love, and to express their dedication to their clients.

It all started at Memorial and it continues every single day because we truly and honestly mean it....... at Memorial Day School

                                                                                                                      YOU matter.
