We are officially in flu/Covid season at SCCS.  Please remember that if your child is ill, he/she should be at home until he/she feels better, or symptoms are improving. If your child has Covid, please keep him/her at home until the fever is gone, symptoms are gone or improving, and he/she can return to participate in a regular school day.

Thank you for your support and understanding as we navigate this flu/Covid season.
