SCS MISSION STATEMENT
As a Catholic school community, we believe in the uniqueness, dignity and potential of every student.  Following the life and example of Jesus Christ, we strive to build character while teaching compassion. By strengthening our students in spirit, mind and body, we prepare them to lead lives based on faith, values, and learning. 
NEWS & UPDATES
SCHOOL SURVEY
An email was sent today containing the link to the annual Accrediation Survey for the school.  If you have not completed the survey, please follow this link as soon as possible.  The more responses we have, the more information we have on areas for improvement for the school.  


DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP REMINDERS

School issued carline tags should be visible, until your student(s) enter your vehicle. Teachers and staff on the curb should be able to see carline tags, so they may direct students to the appropriate loading station. If a car does not have a name tag displayed in the window, you will be directed to park. You will have to go into the office to sign your student out at 3:30 PM.

 


To ensure the safety of our children during arrival and dismissal times, it is imperative that families cooperate with the following traffic plan:
 
  • The first 7 spots in car line are reserved for those who purchased the spot during our PSA auction. These families will park in the school driveway pick up zone. Those families who have rights to the first 7 carline spots must be in their respective spots by 3:00 PM. All others please form two lanes of cars on the gravel area and one lane on Black Oak Blvd.
  • Beginning at 3:00 PM, the car closest to the school building (Lane 1) may begin to move forward, followed by the next gravel lane (Lane 2) and finally the lane on Black Oak Blvd. (Lane 3) may move forward.   Please be courteous and allow all vehicles to follow the lane rotation.
  • Drive close to the curb, and move all the way forward when discharging or picking up students.
  • Do not exit your vehicle while in the drop-off/pick-up line. If you need to enter the building, you must move your vehicle to a spot in the parking lot to avoid disturbing the flow of traffic.
  • Please do not attempt to enter the back lot against the flow of departing traffic. The back lot entrance is closed to in-coming traffic during normal student drop off and pick up times. Everyone's time is valuable, and if you stay in your car and move through the line, it will be better for all involved. The only thing that truly matters is the safety of all our students and staff.
  • Drivers should refrain from using cell phones during carline.
