Saura Summer Updates - July 19, 2020



Stokes County Re-Launch Plan 2020-2021

On Friday, Dr. Rice released the Stokes County Schools Re-Launch 2020-2021.  The week of August 17 will be Orientation for all students.  South Stokes will send information about scheduling your Orientation Appointment at the beginning of August.  Orientation will allow students and their families to learn about how the 2020-21 school year will look different, check out Chromebooks, meet their teachers, and more.  We hope all families will attend an Orientation Session.

Beginning the week of August 24, Stokes County will follow Plan C, all remote learning.  Students and families will learn more about how coursework will be delivered during their orientation sessions.  Remote instruction this year will include regular live instruction during the school day allowing students to follow a traditional school schedule whether on campus or working remotely.  On September 8, Stokes County will move to Plan B participating in in-school and remote learning on an alternating schedule.  Students whose last names begin with A-K will attend school on "A" Days and last names L-Z will attend on "B" Days.  The calendar for this alternating schedule is available in the Stokes County Schools Re-Launch 2020-2021 Plan. 

Students who are interested in the 100% Remote Plan should check the Stokes County Schools' website on Monday for information.  

Please review the re-launch plan and contact the school with any questions.


Senior Pictures!


The next day for Senior Pictures is July 22.  Appointment cards for senior pictures were mailed
to seniors earlier this summer Be sure to go to www.prestigeportraits.com to confirm your appointment or select a different time.  If you did not receive an appointment card, you can schedule a time online at www.prestigeportraits.com as well.  Please be sure to be on time for your appointment to assist the photographers in ensuring social distancing.

The pictures taken this summer are the pictures for the 2020-2021 yearbook so please have your picture taken if at all possible.  

Cap and gown pictures will be taken in Spring 2021 once your graduation orders arrive.

Summer Enrichment
Students have not been in the school building in a while, and we all know how important it is to always keep learning.  Our teachers have put together lists of suggested activities students can do this summer to review, explore, and enjoy.  Check out their suggestions: doing a couple of activities each week will help students be more prepared for the upcoming school year.









Chromebook Collections

Students should return Chromebooks, chargers, calculators, and other school materials this week.  The office will be open 7:30 am until 4:30 pm Monday through Thursday.  Please call the school and let us know if you need assistance getting materials back to school and we will work with students to get items returned.
