“When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.”
Psalm 56:3-4

Dear SCS Community, 

I hope this letter finds you safe and healthy. I am writing to update you on the plan for SCS during the current COVID-19 crisis. In order to fulfill our mission of continuing to provide your children with an exceptional, Christ-centered learning experience, we have been hard at work preparing for a transition to remote learning beginning on March 30.

Please know that it is our intention to return to campus as soon as it is deemed safe to do so.

In the interim, our faculty and staff maintain the same commitment to excellence in Christian education as they always have. In order for your student to be ready to transition to remote learning they must have both a reliable internet connection as well a technological device (such as a laptop or desktop computer) in order to access daily lessons. Students in Kindergarten-2nd grades may access remote learning with an iPad. Note that a smartphone is not an acceptable device for remote learning. If your student does not have access to these two things, please contact Mrs. Jensen by Wednesday, March 25 so that she can help make arrangements for your student.

Instructions and details on the remote learning process will be communicated to parents next week. Students in grades 6-12 will also receive direct instructional emails from teachers and should plan to log in on their own devices. In addition, a time will be made available next week for students who need to retrieve textbooks, materials, or musical instruments to better equip them for the remote learning experience.

Additionally, please note that all field trips, extra-curricular activities and events are cancelled until at least April 15th, including Grandparents Day. Parent/Teacher conferences will still be held "virtually" and you will be contacted by your child's teacher with more details soon . Future events and activities beyond the April 15th date will be assessed and decisions will be communicated when they are made.

We are continually monitoring the global situation and the impact on our community. Our planning and response efforts will remain focused on protecting the health and safety of our students, families, and employees while continuing our important educational mission. As a team, we continue to pray for your safety and for God to be glorified during these unprecedented times.

We will get through this together.
