Saura Weekly Updates 8/28/2016

Weekly Updates - August 28, 2016


Welcome Back!
Thank you to everyone who came out to our Open House on Tuesday.  We had a great turnout and hope you will stay involved throughout this school year.  Students will return to school tomorrow, Monday, August 29, 2016.  The bell will ring at 8:25 and students should report to the main gym.  After a brief opening assembly, students will be dismissed to homerooms where they will go over student information and receive an updated copy of their schedule.  Students will be bringing home lots of school and class information Monday evening.  Please help complete all of the necessary forms and return them to school on Tuesday.  If your address, phone number, or emergency contact information has changed since last year, please send a note to the office with updated information so we can keep our records up to date.  

Student Safety
Please note that all students should be dropped off and picked up in the front parking lot of the school.  We also ask that car riders and student drivers not arrive on campus before 8:00 am due to limited supervision in the early morning hours.

Student Progress
The PowerSchool Parent Portal should be activated by the first week of school and will allow you to track your child's grades and attendance.  If you have used the Parent Portal in the past you should be able to log on with the same information.  If you have forgotten your username or password you should be able to click on "Forgot User Name or Password" to reset your account.  I button to the Parent Portal is located on the South Stokes High school homepage.  If you are in need of assistance please contact Jill Tuttle at South Stokes.
