End of First Quarter Monday, October 19
Picture Re-Takes Monday, October 19, 2020
The Stanley County School District will be moving back to Level One for the school day and Tier 1 for athletics beginning Friday evening. Saturday's homecoming football game will be under Tier 1 guidelines, which allows for open attendance. If you are not feeling well or are in quarantine, please do not attend on Saturday. Thank You
The volleyball match tonight is Tier 2. Only parents of participating athletes and current students are allowed to attend.
We thought we maybe the best Monday Night Football game on tv next week, but the beast hit again. Mt Vernon-Plankinton has had an out break of covid-19 and has cancelled all activities until October 12. So our game with them is cancelled with no chance of rescheduling.
Applications to be a legislative page are available in the counselor’s office. This opportunity is open to juniors and seniors. See Ms. Natvig for more information.
Washing Face Masks: The CDC guidelines recommend washing masks “regularly.” Experts more specifically say that masks should be washed at the end of each day, especially if they are dirty or wet. But there’s no need to wash masks separately from your regular laundry.
Tonight's home volleyball match vs. SBA will only be open to the parents/guardians of players and current Stanley County and SBA students. - - - Stanley County Schools are currently operating under the Tier 2 guidelines set forth by the SDHSAA
This message is going out to all Stanley County students, parents, and guardians, We wanted to share a few kind reminders before our return to in-person learning tomorrow, Thursday the first. Appropriate face coverings are required when social distancing is not possible. This Friday, the 2nd is a full regular school day. Homecoming will be next week; please see the school website for themes, dress-up days, and events. Thursday's home volleyball game will be held under SDHSAA Tier 2 guidelines, which limits attendees to parents/guardians of participating athletes and SC and SBA students. We believe and hope these measures will allow the district to return to Level 1 in the next two weeks.
We are finishing our second week and, hopefully, our final day of distance education. Three quick reminders for our return to in-person learning on Thursday When we return on Thursday, appropriate face coverings will be required for all students and staff. A break from wearing a mask will happen when social distancing is possible, and during lunchtime, at all other times, students and staff will be required to wear an appropriate face covering. Friday will be a regular school day. Please bring all school devices and student-work with when returning to school Thursday morning.
It's not too late to sign up for tonight's Financial Aid Informational Presentation There will be a financial aid informational presentation for students and parents/guardians on September 22nd at 7:00 p.m. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the application that most higher education institutions use to determine a student’s financial need, which determines a student’s eligibility for student loans, grants, and many internal scholarships. This session will cover how to apply for the FAFSA, and it will also provide information on many other financial issues related to higher education. We will be doing this year’s financial aid night by zoom. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know that you would like to participate and please specify the email address to which I should send the invite.
