Frequently Asked Questions
What is a "Thursday Folder"?
Thursday Folder is a communication tool between you and the school. It will contain the week's important papers: students work, order forms, important messages, fundraiser flyers, etc. Please access the electronic folder via Mrs. Salmon's Weekly Announcement email.
How does your Lunch Program work?
SACS offers students the option to purchase lunch five days a week. We have partnered with Keystone Restaurant who delivers lunches to our school daily. Lunch must be ordered by 8:45 a.m. daily.
All lunch charges are invoiced via FACTS as an incidental billing weekly.
Every Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter, we invite families to join us for a catered lunch to celebrate the season. Special order forms will go home in Thursday Folders when those dates are announced. (Family invitations are suspended for the 2020-21 school year due to COVID-19).
What is an Acceptable Uniform?
We have created a presentation for your convenience explaining our school uniform policy and where purchases can be made. Please view here.
What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a fundraising program in which you can purchase popular retail gift cards, receive full face value of the card, and still enable our school to receive a small donation. The program is very popular and earns funds for tuition scholarships.
What is SACS' Vacation Policy?
Ideally, family vacations should be planned around school holidays and closings so that your child's education is minimally disrupted. We DO NOT give work to a vacationing student ahead of time. All work will be assigned upon students return.
What is Race for Education?
Race for Education is a spring fundraising activity that directly involves our students. You will supply names of friends and family likely to sponsor your child as he or she runs laps in a local park. It is great fun, very profitable, and requires almost no planning.
