Hello SEMS Families,

This is Dr. DeBora with six pieces of important information as we approach the end of the year activities.

First, I would like to thank everybody for their patience during our solar upgrade. Our project is now complete, and the parking lot should be back to normal.

Second, our district will be switching over to a new website platform in the very near future. This might interrupt our teacher pages, as staff will need to re-create their pages. While we will support this change, please be patient with teachers during this time, and please use the Synergy site to track your student’s progress. We will work to get the links to teachers’ classroom sites as soon as possible.

Next, last year there was some concerns over a new show on Netflix dealing with mature issues from an adolescent’s perspective. We wanted to inform our community that the second season of 13 Reasons Why is coming out this weekend. In preparation, we have placed parent resources on our website. The address is: https://www.13reasonswhytoolkit.org/parents. We encourage you to visit this site and talk with your students if you believe they have access to this show.

Fourth, we encourage all of our students to finish strong with the State testing this week. Please help us by having all of our students here and ready to go every day.

Fifth, to our 8th grade students and families, information regarding promotion and the 8th grade party is now up on our website. There will be communication in the near future regarding these events.

Lastly, as we recognize Memorial Day with no school on Monday, May 28, we want to thank all of the service men and women who help protect our country. We are eternally grateful for your service and sacrifice.

Thank you for your attention. As a reminder, a text of this phone call can be found on our website under the About Us channel.

Have a good evening.
