October 2020

Dear Families,

SAMS had a great first week welcoming students back into our building. Thank you to parents for your diligence in making sure students only come to school when they feel well, are fever free, and can answer “No” to each of the three screening questions. Our new car rider location has been a success, and we thank you all for your patience at drop off and pick up as we learn our new routine. Our building level staff and custodians have done a fantastic job ensuring that our building is cleaned and sanitized. We are asking students to continue to do their part by remembering the Three W’s...Wear a mask, Wait six feet apart, and Wash your hands.

6th Grade

6th Grade is excited to welcome students back to the classroom! We are off to a great start with in-person learning. Please check students' powerschool for grades.

7th Grade

7th grade teachers cannot express in words how amazing it felt to have students back in class. Our kickoff theme, “Having You Back is Like Getting Presents”, sums up how we feel.

8th Grade

8th grade is off to a fantastic start! We announced our September students of the month and are getting ready to do the same for October. Please keep an eye on your child’s Powerschool to ensure that they are completing all their work at home as well. We look forward to another great term!

It has been a wonderful return back to school for our exploratory classes. We are so excited to see our students again! Please remember to watch your students' grades in Powerschool and have your students remember to watch their stream, emails, and Sunday weekly schedules to know what to bring to school for their exploratory lessons.

P.E. students remember to bring tennis shoes.

Band students remember to bring instruments.

Art students need their current artwork.

All exploratory classes except PE will need students to bring chromebooks, a pencil, and notebooks.

Check Powerschool

Students quickly adjusted to our “new normal” at school. We have worked this past week on new policies and procedures. Please continue to monitor grades via Powerschool. This is the best way to see any missing, incomplete, and graded work. We are working hard to close out Q1 and rock Q2.

Cozy Up to a Good Book!

Medical Reminder

Students cannot attend school if they have a fever > 100℉, more than 2 episodes of vomiting or diarrhea in 24 hours. They may return to school when the symptoms have been resolved without the use of fever reducing medication (Advil, Tylenol, Acetaminophen, Ibuprofen) for at least 24 hours.

It is more important than ever to keep your child home if they are sick. We do not want students or staff to spread illness and lose time from school or work. Your cooperation is needed and appreciated.
