The following information was sent home to all families on Friday, September 17, 2021:

1.) Mask Use in Schools: Attached is a memo from the NLESD clarifying the public health order for mask-use in schools. Villanova families were outstanding in their support of this measure in the 2020-21 school year and we are confident we can replicate this in 2021-22.
