Saura Summer Updates - July 26, 2020

 Enrollment for 2020-2021

The enrollment forms for the 2020-2021 school year are now available online on the South Stokes and Stokes County Schools websites.  We ask that enrollment forms be completed for all returning and new students in order for our records to be current.  The enrollment form also includes the option for full time remote learning mentioned in the
 Stokes County Schools Re-Launch 2020-2021 Plan.  We ask that anyone opting for the 100% remote instruction commit to at least one quarter. 

Schedule and Orientation Information
The week of August 17 will be Orientation for all students.  The website to schedule your orientation session will be live on July 30  beginning at 8:00 am and you will be able to find the link on the South Stokes website.  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.  The South Stokes calendar has been updated with this schedule as well.

Students who are interested in the 100% Remote Plan should indicate this on their 2020-2021 Enrollment Forms.  We ask that anyone opting for the 100% remote instruction commit to at least one quarter. 

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

Drivers Education Classes                      
The in-car portion of the driver's education class has resumed. The driver's ed teachers will be calling students who have completed the in-class portion of the class to schedule their driving. 

Summer Workout Information
This week the North Carolina High School Athletic Association (NCHSAA) announced the fall sports season is delayed until at least September 1.  Football, volleyball, and soccer workouts continue until fall sports begin.  The week of August 17 will be a "dead period" with no workouts that week.    Contact coaches for information

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.
