The first two days of school (August 29 & 30, 2017) for kindergarten & 1st grade are Family Connection Meetings.

Family Connection Meeting is a scheduled time that gives you and your child’s teacher an opportunity to meet individually for approximately 20 minutes.  This is a wonderful opportunity for your child’s teacher to learn more about your child during this meeting.

You will receive a letter with your scheduled Family Connection Meeting date and time during the second full week in August.

Please feel free to bring your child and school supplies with you to your scheduled Family Connection Meeting.

New Morning Routine at Sacy!

We are excited to begin year two in our beautiful building! With this new school year will come a new morning routine for student arrival. Beginning Wednesday, August 31st, we will be bringing students into the hallways in the morning instead of lining up on the playground. This new procedure is aimed at increasing student safety and maximizing instructional time. Please read below to learn about our new plan and help us by talking with your kids!

  • Students will be welcome to enter the building starting at 8:30 each morning.
    • Unlocked entry doors for students are the double doors off the playground near the center set of stairs.
    • **Students coming for breakfast will still be permitted to enter the café at 8:15.
    • Students will walk to their hallway and sit along the wall outside of their classroom door.
    • While sitting in the hallway, students can read a book, talk quietly with friends while in their classroom line, work on homework or any other independent activity in their backpack.
      • Sacy staff members will be monitoring the students in the hallways.
      • Teachers will welcome students into their classroom at 8:40am to begin their day together.

Thanks for your help with ensuing a smooth transition with our new morning routine!
