CO-VID 19 Updates
4/20/2020 @ 3 PM
Today is the last day of our spring break. Distance learning will resume tomorrow.
Last week, the governor announced that we will not return to campus for the remainder of this school year. We are expected to continue
teaching and learning. Our online lessons will continue. We are working on a no-contact paper option for students with limited access to
technology. Beginning Wednesday afternoon, we will have filing cabinets just outside the office with paper assignments for each grade.
There is also a locked drop box. Assignments in the cabinets will be updated each Wednesday morning.
Based on the guidance we have received from the state, it is clear that we cannot host the large gatherings we usually enjoy near the end of the school year. We know you are disappointed. We are, too. This is especially hard for our juniors and seniors. We are planning safer alternatives to the traditional graduation and ring ceremonies now. Juniors and seniors should check their school emails daily for new information about these events, classes, end of year paperwork, ACT, AP, and more. As the new school year approaches and we know what is and isn’t allowed, we hope to have an event where the seniors can get together before everyone goes their separate ways. It’s important to us because we know it’s important to you.
To say the past month has been a challenge would be an understatement. We want you to know how much we appreciate our students, parents, and community for your patience, support, encouragement, and hard work. It means more than we could ever express.

A letter from our ceo in Response to Co-VID 19
Parents and community members,
Our faculty and staff are working hard to make sure that your child/children will still have access to appropriate lessons throughout this time. Our teachers are working to create on-line classes that will allow students to remain current on the content and create opportunities for the children to communicate any questions with their teachers. Last Friday, every SCCS student came through the computer lab and was shown how to log on to their email and other applications in order to access these lessons.
We also understand that not every child has access to on-line materials. To combat this, we have taken several steps to ensure that everyone will be able to remain current which include:
-The office remaining open Monday through Friday from 8am-noon.
-Sending all of the students home with their Springboard books for Math and ELA (if your children were absent Friday, those are available in the office).
-Our teachers are working to create alternative (non-internet dependent) options for those without access.
-We are working on creating free wi-fi that can be accessed by anyone’s device from the school’s parking lot.
-We are working on a schedule that will enable students to have access to the library to both check out books and use the school’s computers.
-Using this week as a “dry-run” so the students and the teachers can iron-out any problems.
This will be a learning process for all of us. Please encourage your children to communicate any concerns that they have with that class’s teacher (through email) so that we can work together to ensure a smooth transition to these alternative delivery methods.
Please check in to the school’s website and other social media outlets for the most up-to-date information.
Thank you for your patience during this time.
