Dear Students,


Student and staff safety is of paramount concern for everyone here at St. Mary's. The board of directors, administration, faculty and support staff works hard every day to ensure that our students and employees have a safe and respectful learning environment.


St. Mary's has been working diligently with local law officials and with Homeland Security to assess vulnerabilities and assemble a plan to better secure the campus. We have developed an Emergency Response Crisis Management Plan that follows the National Incident Management System protocols and includes procedures for mitigation and prevention, preparedness, response and recovery efforts. Information contained in the manual has been designed to include appropriate measures for a variety of emergency situations. Site administrators and faculty/staff have been informed on a variety of scenarios. Drills have been conducted in various emergency situations, with more planned for the future. We systematically review protocols and troubleshoot areas of concern.


In addition to various drills, our faculty/staff are instructed to report to the administration, any potential threats to a student or to his/her safety and well-being. We encourage all members of the school community to contact school administrators with their concerns in order to help maintain a safe and respectful learning environment.


Although this crisis management site plan has been in place for a number of years, we are presently moving forward with a security measures project that includes raising funds through community donations for the following:

  • Fencing and Gates

  • Locking Systems for Classroom Doors

  • Security Cameras

Saint Mary's is very grateful for the support of our community along with the service and support of our first responders in partnering to keep our children, teachers and staff safe.


In Mary's grace,


Kathy Smith

e-transcripts are here!  St. Mary's High School is making the college application process easier.


Are you getting ready to start the college application process? St. Mary's has teamed with Parchment to make the process easier for families


One of the required documents you will need when applying to college is an official high school transcript, a student's academic record. St. Mary's High School has a new, online service where you can request an official high school transcript and send it to the college of your choice with just a few clicks.


Parchment sends your transcript securely, accurately and confidentially to any college or university.  The best part is you can request your transcript anytime from anywhere.  Just click the "order transcript" link on the SM website to visit


Just follow these 3 easy steps to get started:

1.   Register for a free account at

2.   Request your transcript

3.   Track your transcript


The fee for eTranscripts is $5. When registering with Parchment you will be prompted to put in your payment of choice information.


Sending the transcript electronically is easier, safe and saves money! Because it's online, it is processed much faster; your high school can send it instantly, and the college or university receives it immediately.  You no longer have to wonder if your transcript was sent by St. Mary's, or received by the college or university to which your child is applying.  Now you can track it all online at your account on  That's peace of mind!


University of California campuses do not want a transcript until final grades are complete in June. CSU campuses and private and/or out of state colleges will vary. Please check with each campus and check all emails sent by the universities. Students applying via the Common Application will automatically have the initial and midyear transcripts submitted by their counselor. In June, ALL seniors must request a final transcript to be sent to the college they will be attending.
