Want to make this Halloween the best ever? If you will be 16 years or older on October 31st, you could have a blast and save at least 3 lives at the same time! The American Red Cross is hosting a high school only blood drive at Southpoint Mall on October 31st. Your blood donation during the event will contribute to scholarship money for our students here at SCS and there will be prizes and giveaways for donors. Stay tuned for more information!

It is still an instructional day, with asynchronous and social emotional learning, for all students.  The protocol for SCS is that students must log into Canvas and check in at each of their classes by 2:00 p.m. and complete any assignments that teachers choose to leave for them.
