Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of July 25.
Thanks for a great first week. We monitored carpool times daily and the times decreased each day. We hope this continues into this week as bus routes normalize and everyone gets accustomed to the new school year. You can assist with morning times by having children with their bookbags nearby ready to exit the car as soon as you get to the front sidewalk and traffic stops. You do not have to wait until you get to the front door to let your child out.
School begins at 8:30 a.m. and drop-off begins at 8:10 a.m. in the carpool line at the front of the school. School dismisses at 3:20 p.m. Remember that all carpool students are dropped off in the front traffic circle in the morning. Middle school students are picked up on the side of the building in the afternoon. High school students are picked up in the front carpool line. Siblings that are in mixed grades go to the front with the high school students.
If you need to find your child’s bus information please use the Secure Bus Stop Information Service link. You will need your child’s PowerSchool ID number. You may also want to download the Here’s the Bus App which will allow you to track your child’s bus. Both links are located on our website or the DPS website. You may contact Ms. Durkin, assistant principal, if you need assistance with your bus.
Schedules/Schedule Change Requests
You and your students may access their schedules in PowerSchool anytime. The deadline to request a change has been extended to 9:00 a.m. Monday, July 25. The link has been shared via Canvas Global Announcements, my blog, the SCS website, and Ms. Settle’s website throughout last week. Students must be signed into their DPS account to complete the form. Students must follow their current schedule until a schedule change is approved.
Breakfast/Free & Reduced Lunch Applications
All students may receive free breakfast in our cafeteria. Applications for Free/Reduced Lunch are on our website or paper forms can be picked up in the cafeteria or the main office. Contact Ms. White, our cafeteria manager, if you have any questions.
Parking Permits for Student Drivers
Parking permit applications are available in the main office for those students with drivers’ licenses who wish to drive to school. The cost is $75.00. These may be purchased anytime during the school year.
PTSA is Selling Spirit Wear
PTSA is selling SCS sweatshirt hoodies and other swag. Please visit their website to place your order. Deadline is July 31.
Before School Care Applications
We’re excited to be a site for Community Education Before School Care. The applications are on the SCS website.
Mark your calendars for Curriculum Night and PTSA General Meeting which will be held August 16 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in-person at SCS. You will be able to attend our first PTSA General Meeting of the year and visit each of your child’s classes to learn more about what they will experience during the year. You don’t want to miss this event!
