Daily Announcements–Wednesday, August 4, 2021

To be intentional means to act on purpose. Being kind is the most important intention we can have—for ourselves and for others. When we begin our day with a thought or action that is intentional about what we hope for the day ahead, being kind should be at the top of the list. A smile or a nod to let another know you see them, a word or greeting to say that you care, or an act that helps someone, even when they don’t ask are the most simple and intentional ways to be kind. Gryphons, be kind to yourself and others…on purpose!

    Good afternoon Ms. Price,

    Have you heard anything from DPS about regular covid testing being offered in school? I know they were doing it at the end of last year and through June, but I didn’t see anything for July or August. I took my daughter to the drive-thru at Walgreens for a test after the first 2 weeks (negative) but I doubt every family has this capability. I’m also wondering how SCS can get ahead of an outbreak if there is no regular testing.

    Thank you for everything you have in place to keep the kids, teachers and staff safe. I hope we do not have to return to virtual classes. in-person school has been such a benefit for our 6th grader’s mood, learning and enthusiasm so far.

    Best, Zareen Kapadia

      We do not have plans at this time for regular testing.
