2018-2019 SBA School Calendar Overview
Please refer to the link below for the 2018-2019 School Calendar Overview.


Safety Protocols - Reminders to Parents
Lock down drills are a necessity in helping students to prepare for emergency situations. The drills allow for students to understand how our safety protocols work and how to think and act if we go into lock down mode.

It is imperative that parents do not notify their daughters that a drill is about to occur. It defeats the purpose in preparing students for critical thinking and problem solving when the need calls for it. Please allow us to teach them necessary skills for safety while they are under our care every school day. 

Drill alerts go to parents so that they are aware that our lock-down is a drill. In the future, I ask that you not communicate the drill information to your daughters. I am grateful for your cooperation.
