Summer Bridge is open for student registration. If you registered earlier in the year, you will need to register again. Summer Bridge this year will be entirely virtual and staffed by Sanderlin Staff. Summer Bridge is voluntary but will involve some excellent and fun enrichment opportunities for your student. Please consider registering for Virtual Summer Bridge.
Many of you have asked about yearbooks. As with many things COVID-19 related, our yearbook shipment has been delayed. We will not receive them until later in June which means that we will not be able to distribute them on the 19th. We will come up with a plan to get yearbooks out later in the summer.
Ms. Armstrong would like to ask that our families fill out the form at this link below. I am trying to gauge how you are doing and if there is any additional support that individual families need outside of just the educational services. We want to help and support you - not just with education but with food, clothing, health, technology, internet, etc. issues. Our support services team is here to assist you. Please take a minute to fill out the form - even if you don't currently need assistance. We just want to see how our families are doing.
