SCSD2 will be on fall break all of next week. Enjoy your time away from school. Don't forget that all Responsible Technology Use policies will be enforced over break. Please make wise choices about iPad use and storage over the week.

We'll return to school on Monday, October 19th and we will start on a B day. Teachers will be finalizing grades on that Monday and we'll be preparing Quarter 1 report cards mid-week.
