Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, SCS has been working steadily to make decisions that prioritize the health and safety of the students, families, employees and the community we serve. The development of best practices through this frequently changing health crisis is a historic undertaking, but we are committed to returning stronger.

Superintendent Ray presented his S.A.F.E. plan for school re-entry to the School Board on June 30, which is based on recommendations from the District's Re-Entry Task Force. The Task Force met weekly beginning May 28 to discuss key factors related to the safe reopening of schools and provide advice to SCS planning teams. The group's weekly updates can be viewed here.

In addition to a wide range of health and safety protocols based on CDC and Health Department guidance, the S.A.F.E. plan provides multiple learning options for students in the fall in direct response to parent input. Families can choose between two options for the first semester based on the needs of their child and the format they feel will best support his/her learning, including a fully in-school option and a fully virtual model.
