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.

Upcoming Senior Events and Reminders
Seniors received a list of important upcoming events and also reminders about finishing the school year strong by upholding their academic responsibilities as priorities. 

Any senior who has incomplete school work or is failing a class will not be able to participate in senior events until assignments are completed. Also, any senior who has missed more than the 20-day limit for absences will need to make up time before graduating.
