We are currently not offering official HSE testing. Our priority is the health and safety of staff and students. We are watching health directives from the county to see when we can resume testing for a limited number of people. We will notify students when the test center will begin offering HSE tests again.

We know that graduation is important to students and their friends and family so we have postponed it until we can have a regular graduation. Students at SAS complete throughout the year, and everyone who has earned a HSE or HSD since the last graduation will be invited.

Sometimes screen time is a necessity if we have children at home and work we need to do. Here are three apps that make screen time a learning time:

  1. CodeMonkey: a game-based education program that teaches children to code. It comes with a membership fee, but there's a free 14-day trial that doesn't require a credit card.
  2. BrainPop: Online learning across subject areas for children in kindergarten through middle school and ELL learning for all age groups. Free.
  3. Khan Academy: Online learning in math, science, and literacy for all age groups. Standards-aligned. Free.
