SLCS District Update
September 2, 2021
Note from the Superintendent
It has been 12 months since the beginning of my first “First Day of School” with SLCS. In a short twelve months we have been through a lot together and there is no place I would rather be. It is unquestionably a privilege to lead this dynamic school community. A partnership between school and home is one of the cornerstones of our district and paramount to our students' success.
Yesterday and today it was a pleasure to watch our staff prepare to greet your children. The excitement, energy, and passion that was on display was incredible. It filled me with pride and should instill great confidence in our families as our staff is ready, dedicated, and committed to helping our students learn and grow.
It is with much excitement and anticipation that we look forward to the new school year and greeting students on Tuesday. I want to wish everyone a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend. It is going to be a great year!
SLCS Proud! SLCS Strong!
Our school nutrition staff looks forward to welcoming students back to school and into our
kitchens! We will continue serving healthy school breakfast and lunch to fuel our students for success. This school year, thanks to federal pandemic waivers, all students will be eligible for free meals, regardless of family income. School meal programs nationwide are experiencing many of the same supply chain issues that have impacted restaurants and grocery stores throughout the pandemic. Our school nutrition team is committed to ensuring students continue to have access to healthy meals each school day. Just as families had to make substitutions on grocery lists last year, schools will have to make some last-minute changes to our regular menus, based on availability. We hope parents and students will be patient as we sort through these supply chain issues. We may not have the same number of menu choices or may need to change the menu for the day, but we will be sure that all students are nourished and ready to learn. We will work to substitute for items that are unavailable. We look forward to serving your child this school year.
Have a great Labor Day Weekend!
