Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for May 2, 2022.
This week SCS reported 1 positive COVID case, 3 close contacts were identified, and there were 0 class closures. Communication to families whose students were identified as close contacts has been completed. If you have not already been personally contacted, it means your student was NOT in close contact with any of the COVID-19 cases.
Teacher Appreciation Week
This week is Teacher Appreciation Week and we’d like to thank our teachers for all their hard work and dedication throughout the school year and beyond. Their efforts go well beyond their normal duties and working hours. At SCS, we honor all staff during this week because we believe that every adult in our building is a teacher and plays an important role in educating our students. Thanks to our PTSA for providing all kinds of treats and support during this week and our community at large for all you do to partner with us.
Progress Reports will be available in PowerSchool Monday, May 9.
Please join us for the next PTSA General Meeting on May 18 via Zoom at 6:30 p.m.
Back to School Form
This is another reminder that BACK TO SCHOOL FORM so that you can register for bus transportation, confirm your contact information, and more. You can find instructions on the DPS website at DPSNC.net. Link to DPS Enrollment Page If you need an appointment, please contact Ms. Fleming. Again, this is very important to ensure that your child has bus transportation lined up for next year, in addition to other important information. Working together, we can make next year the BEST YEAR EVER for our students. Thank you in advance!

2—Provide documentation to Ms. Neville of your chosen activity;
