Good Afternoon Viking Families,
It’s hard to believe that we are nearing the end of the month of May. It has been wonderful to see more and more students return to in-person learning. It has been a blessing, one that I will never take for granted again, to be able to greet the students and wave to families as you are dropping your students off for school. I know there are still safety guidelines that must be adhered to, but at least we have injected a bit more life into our hallways and classrooms here at SIS/SMS.
As we begin to finish up the year, there are some key aspects to finishing up that everyone needs to be aware of. Yes, we will be celebrating our eighth grade students. It will be similar to last year in that it will be a drive through promotion. If you are an eighth grade parent, you will be receiving an email directly from Mrs. Nau about times and the logistics. We are working on some celebrations for our fourth through seventh graders as well. We have to make sure we follow guidance, so not sure what those will look like at this time.
We will be collecting chromebooks at the end of the year. As we get closer to the last day, please be aware that textbooks and chromebooks will all be turned in for inventory. Specific dates for grade levels will be announced soon.
We have been planning for the 2021-22 school year as well. We are anticipating a full day schedule, five days a week. We would also return to our Monday morning late starts. All of our planning at this time centers around returning to a normal school year next year.
As always, if you have any further questions do not hesitate to call the school office. We would be happy to answer them for you. Have a wonderful weekend,
