Next week students are on a minimum day schedule for Monday - Friday so teachers can meet with parents before school and from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m.  Teachers are scheduling conferences and reaching out to parents for some students.  If you would like to schedule a conference with one of your child's teachers, reach out and send them an email.  We are unable to meet with all students and parents during Conference Week.  Teachers are available during their Office Hours time slots to schedule meetings with students and parents.

We hope you will check out our new SCSD Pandemic Care & Support website that specifically addresses resources for our school community during the Pandemic.

We've created a Parent Education Calendar and will keep that updated with new events. Note: we will be adding new events to this calendar regularly, so you may wish to link the calendar to your own.

The site also houses pages for Counseling & Mental Health where you will find links to make appointments with your school counselors, along with information such as the Green Folder which details an action plan to help during a mental health crisis. We added a page about Meals & Groceries just to make sure everyone knows how to order weekly meal boxes and get support from the PTA if you need groceries.

Finally, you'll find our newly-released guidelines for families about the process we are following if a student is ill. Each time those processes are revised, we will let you know.

SCEF is thrilled to announce that the School Board approved an amendment to the budget to provide Music for Minors to K-4. Music for Minors is a local nonprofit and leading provider of comprehensive, sequential standards-based music education. The mission of Music for Minors is to nurture in children a lifelong love of music. Without the generous and overwhelming support of our donors, we could not support our kids, teachers and schools in these important and meaningful ways.

Your contributions continue to make a real difference for our students during this challenging school year. Thank you!
