Weekly Message–August 26-30, 2019

Good Evening SCS Families. This is Ms. Price with your weekly message for the week of August 26.

 

Parents, it is very important that we have your current contact information on file. If your phone numbers have changed, contact Ms. Fleming, our data manager to update them. In the event of an emergency, we need to be able to reach you. Also we need to have your children’s medical information on file. In the event of a medical emergency, we need to know quickly how best to treat your child. You may update this information with Ms. Fleming. All of your students’ information is confidential.

 

The PowerSchool Parent Portal is now online and accessible for the 19-20 school year! If you have a returning student to Creative Studies, you can use the same login information you created last year. If your student is new to Creative Studies you will need to set up your Parent Portal account. Parents or guardians who have never created a Parent Portal account are strongly encouraged to do so as this is a very useful tool to monitor your child’s grades, attendance, and assignments, as well as communicate with teachers via email. Parents who have never created a Parent Portal account will need to come to the school in person during normal office hours with a photo ID to pick up the login information and account setup instructions for your child. We will not release this information without a photo ID, and it MUST be a parent/guardian who picks up the login information. Please email our data manager, Ms. Fleming, at jennifer.fleming@dpsnc.net, if you have an existing account and are locked out or have other technical issues.

 

I’m excited to announce that we have made a recommendation for the Math I position and I will announce a start date after the applicant has been cleared through our Human Resources Department. In the meantime, Mr. Blanchette is serving as the substitute and Dr. Tuck Thomas is supporting him with the content.

 

Parents and students, previews of the SCS Cardigan and windbreakers are available on the SCS website. Order forms were sent home with progress reports and all orders must be placed by September 20, 2019.

 

Ms. Sims students will complete their second mile of the semester between Tuesday, August 27 and Thursday, August 29, 2019.  Ensure that your child has all necessary medications, such as inhalers, if needed.  If possible, have your child bring a water bottle to stay hydrated during the activity.  If you have any questions please contact Ms. Sims.

 

School will be closed Monday, September 2 in observance of the Labor Day Holiday.

 

Finally, I wanted to let you know that we have all been concerned about some of the news over the last week about incidents of violence in our communities. While these incidents did not involve our school directly, our students and families can be affected even simply by hearing the news. Please reach out to our school counselors if your child needs assistance. We have access to mental health resources to help. We are here to support your child.

 

Have a great evening from everyone at SCS where we practice the 4 C’s—Creativity, Communication, Collaboration, and Community.

Attention all carpool drivers.  The carpool drop-off area begins at the sidewalk.  In an effort to keep carpool moving smoothly and to reduce congestion on the roads near the school, students should exit on the right side of your vehicle as soon as you pull up to the sidewalk in front of the school.  You do not need to wait until you get to the front door.  Students should never be dropped off in the parking lot.  If your child requires assistance exiting the vehicle due to a health issue, kindly inform the staff on duty.  Additionally, please follow the directions given by the staff on duty.  Drivers, the safety of our students and staff are depending on you to be attentive while in the carpool line. So, please watch your cellphone use.

Attention parents of student drivers!  Your child must have a valid SCS parking decal to park on campus. This should be displayed from the rearview mirror while parked on campus.  Students must park in the lot in front of the school and only in spaces of the front lot near the end of the building. We will enforce decal use!

Parents and students, previews of the SCS Cardigan and windbreakers are available on the SCS website.  We will begin taking orders soon and more information is forthcoming.

Were you featured on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook???  You won’t know unless you follow or like us? Check us out on social media to see if you were caught doing something aMazing and to stay on top of all the SCS happenings!
