Parent Information for upcoming weeks
Southern Public School’s number one priority is keeping our students, staff, and our communities safe. We are sure that each family is handling this situation differently and we are here to help each of you during this school closure period.
Please follow us on our school website at www.southernschools.org or on the Southern Facebook page to stay up to date on any new developments as we navigate through this difficult situation.
Continued Learning Opportunities:
Southern staff will be providing enrichment packets and online activities to help your son or daughter stay sharp and reinforce skills that they have learned during the first 3 quarters of the school year. We are asking all families to report to the Elementary School building (PK-6) and the Jr./Sr. High School building (7-12) on Wednesday, March 25 from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. to pick up enrichment packets. Students in grades 9-12 will be provided online resources to work on different skills and not enrichment packets. If any student in grades 9-12 is currently failing the 3rd quarter, they will be provided individual learning opportunities to raise their grade to pass the third quarter. All of these activities will be sent out individually to students through their school-issued email.
Breakfast & Lunch Opportunities:
Starting on Monday, March 23, Southern Public Schools will be offering free meals for children, ages 1-18, during the school closing as a result of the COVID-19 virus. The meals will be available at both the Elementary School building and the Jr./Sr. High School building from 11:30 a.m - 12:15 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. On Monday and Wednesday, it will include 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches, and on Friday, it will include 1 breakfast and 1 lunch. Free meals will be served to all children ages 1-18 until school resumes. Children must be present when the meal is handed out and meals will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Counseling & Special Education Opportunities:
Our counselors and special education teachers will be available through email to help any student that may be experiencing a crisis during the unexpected closure.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your building principal.
