RE-ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN
A letter was mailed home to all current SCCS families last week with students entering grades 1-12 explaining the re-enrollment process for the 2019-2020 school year. Families may call to set up an appointment, or choose the online re-enrollment option through Final Forms. Once enrollment is complete, the tuition contract will be sent home for you to review, sign, and return with the $200 family enrollment fee. The $200 family enrollment fee is due by Friday, April 27, 2019 to be applied toward next year's tuition balance. After April 27, the fee will no longer be applied to tuition. You may pay the fee online; however, Final Forms charges a 4% fee, so you may still pay SCCS directly via cash or check if you wish. Please contact Mrs. Chrissy Snow at 419-626-1892, ext. 311 or
with questions or to set up an appointment.
