Weekly Message–November 23–December 4, 2020

Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your Weekly Message for the weeks of November 23 and 30.

We’d like to recognize all of our students who earned recognition for Quarter 1 A and A/B Honor Roll. Certificates and a surprise for students will be mailed this week! We will communicate our plan to recognize students virtually. 

Progress Reports are available for parents to review Tuesday, November 24. You may access your child’s Progress Report by visiting your Parent Portal account. If you don’t have your Parent Portal account, we are available Monday-Friday 8:30-4:30 for you to stop by the school to pick up your Parent Portal Account information. You will need to bring your picture ID. If these hours are not convenient for you, please call the school so we can assist you with getting your Parent Portal information. 

I’m happy to announce two upcoming Pop in with Price sessions where I’ll have some guests join me. The sessions will be Tuesday, December 1, 5:30–7:30 and December 10, 5:30–7:30 p.m. Ms. Fleming, our data manager, and Ms. Bridges, our Instructional Coach, will be in attendance to assist you with Parent Portal access and Canvas Observer accounts. So, please stop by anytime during those times on either date and chat with me or get your log-in information for Parent Portal and register for your Canvas Observer accounts. 

We are happy for Ms. Mitchell as she is out on maternity leave, we are looking for a long – term substitute for her classes. Lessons and activities will be posted in Canvas by Monday, November 30. Once assignments are posted, students should contact Ms. Price if they have any questions. 

Seniors, it is not too late for you to order your cap & gown. Visit jostens.com and select our school. 

The deadline to submit proof of required immunizations and school health assessments has been extended to Dec. 30, 2020. After this point a student must be excluded from in-person and remote learning until compliant with requirements.

All 7th graders in North Carolina are required by state law (Statute G.S. 130-A-152 (a), Administrative Code 10A NCAC 41A.0401) to receive one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis) vaccine and one dose of MCV (Meningococcal) vaccine. All 12th graders in North Carolina are required by state law (Statute G.S. 10A NCAC 41A .0401) to receive Meningococcal Conjugate vaccine (MenACWY). If your student is in need of these immunizations, you should have received a letter from the school via US Mail. 

Please plan to stop by the office to pick up the science kits for grades 6 and 7 that will be used for instruction this quarter. 

We encourage you to join our PTSA. Students are also encouraged to join. We have regularly scheduled meetings for students so they can make their voices heard about activities at our school. The link to join: www.thescsptsa.com

One of the measures of the health of a school is the membership in PTSA. Let’s increase our membership from last year! Also mark your calendars for some important PTSA events–our next General Meeting will be held December 15 at 6:30 p.m.  Plan to join us for our upcoming Dine-Out Nights: City BBQ Hwy. 54 on December 3 and  at Chipotle Roxboro Rd. on January 11 from 4:00 – 8:00 p.m. 

Check Global Announcements and social media for future college visits and other important activities for Wednesdays. 

Go to the SCS Wellness Wednesday Canvas Page for the link. Click here to join the SCS Wellness Wednesday Course to access all Wellness Wednesday activities. 


The directions for creating a Canvas Parent Observer Account can be found at canvas.dpsnc.net.  There you will find step-by-step written directions, a video explanation, Canvas Observer Guide and information for downloading the mobile app.  It is important that you create an observer account because some announcements will only be sent to Parent Observers and you can see your child’s activity in Canvas. 

This week is a short week as we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving Break. School is in session for students Monday and Tuesday. The school is closed Wednesday through Friday. Students return to school Monday, November. 

Have a good evening from all of us at SCS where we practice the 4 C’s – Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Community.
