Saura Summer Updates - June 28, 2020













Attention Class of 2021!
Appointment cards for senior pictures were mailed to rising seniors from Lifetouch this past week.  Pictures are scheduled for July 14 and July 22.  Please be sure to go to www.prestigeportraits.com to confirm your appointment or select a different time. Please be sure to be on time for your appointment to assist the photographers in ensuring social distancing.




Summer Workout Information
Stokes County Schools will use the two weeks in June (15-19 & 22-26) to educate our coaches and student-athletes about the procedures and expectations set out by the NCHSAA.  The health of our student athletes and coaches is extremely important to us and we want to make sure we have plans in place with the required social distancing, sanitizing procedures, and supplies needed before having students workout.  June 27 - July 5 is a "dead period" with no workouts allowed.  Our student-athletes may begin summer workouts on July 6, 2020.  Coaches are reaching out to student-athletes to let them know about plans for July.  If you need a coach's  contact information, please contact Mitch Adams, Athletic Director, at mitch.adams@stokes.k12.nc.us.



As we receive workout schedules, we will add details to the Summer Workouts List.

You can view all of the NC High School Athletic Association's guidance regarding summer workouts online at https://www.nchsaa.org/news/2020-6-8/nchsaa-summer-guide-reopening-sportsactivities.




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.

Saura Weekly Updates - June 7, 2020












Congratulations, Class of 2020!
This week was full of celebrations.  Friday evening, we shared the 2020 Virtual Graduation Ceremony.  Please join us in celebrating our most recent Saura graduates in the video below.







As we get further into the summer, we will continue to update seniors about any additional celebrations planned including an August 1 live ceremony.

This week we also released the 2020 Awards Day and our theatre classes' "Home Plays:  Snapshots of Life in Quarantine".  If you have not had a chance to view the many celebrations released this past week, be sure to check out the links below.  To view the 2020 Talent Show, students should check their school email for an email with the link to the show.
