Jennifer Edwards has been an amazing help to me and my education after high school. I had no idea where to start when it came to college, she helped answer all the questions I had.”


Way to go, Jennifer!

SSS Department Trivia

Here is what Heidi has to say about this story:

When I was 18 I wanted to see the world and quite frankly Boise Idaho was not cutting it! I wanted to experience different cultures and people. After a dismal first year of college, I decided to pack my bags and move to New York. I was hired by a family who placed an advertisement in the paper to watch their 2 children. Little did I know, it was cheaper to fly out a kid from Idaho, put a bed in the living room than send your kids to daycare. I didn’t care though because I was finally surrounded by different cultures, sounds, food and people. It was exciting for me to experience NYC as a young person. I went to a couple museums, saw a play on Broadway, ate amazing food and hung out with “mobsters” in Queens. After a short time, my family moved to Five Towns area of Long Island, where John Gotti lived. Of course, we were not neighbors, but I did see his house a few times, driving past quickly. The Mob is not something you mess with!

    Student End of Year Reclamations

    Reclamation information and return labels will start going out to all current families on 5/16. They will receive an email with the information, and a mailed packet will follow. All the information the family needs should be included in the email/packet. Please see below for some important points of reclamations:


    Computers

    • Families should only return hardware if the student is not returning next year. If they are returning for SY 19-20, they need to keep their computer. (NOTE: If a computer is returned, but the student continues for the 19-20 SY, a new computer will not automatically ship).


    Materials

    • Family should refer to materials information sent with the labels to know which materials need to be returned.
    • Materials should be returned after completion of the course. If a student will be continuing in a course for next school year, they should keep the materials until they are completely finished with the course, or, if the student is retaking a course, they should keep the materials. Materials for continuing or repeated courses will not automatically ship if they’ve already been sent.
