Summit Family Newsletter
Happy to have all our students back!
We hope your kids have had a great experience being back to school four days a week! Our teachers and staff have had a great time beginning to build the classroom culture of a new and large community of learners.
We knew traffic would be busier for both morning drop-off and pick-up as we started full return to learn! Thank you for everyone’s patience!
I would encourage you to be mindful of the fact that the school day begins at 7:40am. Students should arrive prior to 7:40am in order to be in class on time! Please try to leave home earlier than normal to make it through the traffic each morning. Currently we have 50-70 students arriving after the tardy bell rings each day.
Time is running out for you to purchase your 2020-2021 Summit Middle School Yearbook. This years' yearbook costs $35. Please click the link and order today!

Free Tax Filing Assistance
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the IRS is partnering with the Oklahoma Department of Libraries to help disseminate information regarding the IRS-sponsored On-Line Taxes program, which allows free tax filing for middle- and lower-income citizens.
On-Line Taxes can now be accessed via most libraries in Oklahoma. Using this program, any taxpayer with an income of $72,000 or less can file their federal and state taxes free of charge. There is no age limit and the program also supports non-resident returns. Tax certified volunteers are also available to answer taxpayer questions.

Remember to Report
With students returning to the classroom four days a week, it is still imperative that families contact the school if your child is exhibiting symptoms or tests positive for COVID. Please contact Mr. Self directly by phone at 340-6003 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org should your child's absence be related to a Covid quarantine or isolation. Please leave a message EVEN if this occurs over days when we are not in school.
