Starting Tuesday, January 19, 2021, SRES will transition to an AM/PM Hybrid Model

Please note the following important information that we hope will help you plan and have a smooth transition.

  • Students in Cohort A will follow the AM schedule and students in Cohort B will follow the PM schedule.

  • Students will remain in the same cohort they have currently unless previously notified by our principal secretary confirming a change. Again, students who will be changing Cohorts from A to B or B to A have already been notified via email. It is our priority to maintain cohorts as much as possible for the health and safety of our students and staff. Please see the instructions below to check your student cohort in Aeries.

  • Drop Off and Pick Up will remain the same. The main lot is for grades 3-6, the "bus loop is for grades 1-2, and the kinder parking lot is for grades TK-K.

  • Thank you for always wearing face masks when dropping off and picking up students, even on the sidewalks. The campus will remain closed to visitors.


"Take and Bake" breakfast/lunch pick up instructions (please note that if desired each student may pick up a free breakfast and lunch that may need to be heated before eating and instructions will be included):

  • Please follow the schedule below to pick up "Take and Bake" lunches for AM/RVC and PM students.
  • PM students will pick up breakfast and lunch to take home for the next day. Since these lunches may need to be heated at home.
  • TK, K, and 1st grade, "Take and Bake" lunches will be delivered before the end of each session to classrooms.
  • 2-6th grade students will pick up "Take and Bake" lunches from the multipurpose room door (as we have been doing).
