Happy Friday, Sci HIgh Families!

I hope this message finds you doing well. Yesterday evening, many of you participated in our very first “Virtual Back to School Night” and were able to meet your students’ teachers, get your questions answered, and hopefully, were able to better understand your students’ virtual classroom experience. As I’ve mentioned before, we’re all working through this together, but together, we’ll be successful! Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!

Mandatory Vaccines

Many of our students are behind in their mandatory vaccines. All students are required by the State to provide proof of the required vaccinations or immunity. If your student is not up to date with their vaccines, please schedule an appointment with the Student Based Health Clinic, ASAP, by calling 504-613-5648.
