SCA Parent Newsletter

May 5, 2016


Due to Dutchfest set up behind the school, parents picking up elementary students after school tomorrow should pull in front of the elementary entrance, NOT the playground area. All students riding home on the bus will board at the high school (main) entrance. Thanks for your cooperation in helping to ensure the safety of our students.

Students staying after school Friday are not officially supervised unless assigned to a specific project. We ask that students return home after school, and then accompany their parents to Dutchfest.


There will be no school for students Monday, May 9th. The school offices will be closed.


This week is National Teacher Appreciation week. Remember

your student’s teacher by sending a note of encouragement and thanks!
