Daily Symptom Screening

A reminder from your School Nurse:   Every student needs to check the daily symptoms screening before coming to school each day. The screening can be found on the SASD website under Back to School or below. If you have any of these symptoms, please do not come to school, but continue with virtual learning.  Daily-Symptom-Screening-updated-Jan2021 (1).pdf

Class of 2021 Scholarship Opportunities
SENIORS:  in-house scholarship season here and the second deadline is Friday, March 19!   Posted below is the Senior Scholarship Handout which gives a brief outline of all of the in-house scholarship and their deadlines.   Please make time to read it and see which scholarships you qualify.  Note:  only apply for scholarship in which you are eligible and meet the criteria.  Scholarship committees will not consider your application if you do meet the criteria - do not waste their time and yours.  

When you are ready to upload your completed application to the scholarship repository found on the Class of 2021 Google Classroom, scan and create 1 PDF with all of your documents and rename the scan with your last name, first initial and the scholarship name - ie. Smith, J. Millvalean.  A video tutorial showing you how to scan and turn your application into 1 PDF using the Notes app on your school-issued iPad has been posted to the Class of 2021 Google Classroom.  If you have any questions about scholarships, please reach out to your counselor.  Good luck to all who apply!    Senior Scholarship handout 2021.pdf

2021-2022 Course Description Book
The 2021-2022 Course Description Book is now available on the Counseling Office webpage under the Quick Links section.  Scheduling for the upcoming school year will begin in February.  Please take time to review the course offerings and talk to your teachers about what courses will be best for you next school year.  
Student Driving & Parking
The 2020-2021 HYBRID parking application is now available under the "Quick Links" section.  Eligible juniors and seniors wishing to drive to and park on campus MUST secure a parking pass before driving to school.  ALL campus parking (including Matulevic Field) is by permit only. Permit applications will be accepted in the High School Activities Office on Tuesdays and Fridays during the regular school day.  The permit fee, normally $45 for the school year, has been reduced to $30 and will be prorated as the year progresses - $20 after November 30 and $10 after February 28.  HYBRID permits are only valid during the HYBRID session and students who have a HYBRID permit will need to reapply - with no additional fee - when we return to a traditional model.  New applicants who apply during the traditional session will be assessed a fee based on the start date of the traditional session. Please call ext. 1530 with any questions.
