Because of the new direction regarding the school reopening plan, we are asking parents to login to the Sapphire Parent Portal and complete a brief survey that asks about choice of educational program and includes other questions regarding transportation and extended drop-off and pick-up times.  Please be sure to click the NEXT button to continue through the entire survey, as some questions are conditional.

Information regarding the educational program options, SoCo Live and SoCo Cyber, are available in the Sapphire Parent Portal, as well as in the Health and Safety Plan Draft located on the District’s COVID-19 Update Page.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation, as we continue to develop a safe and effective plan for the reopening of school.
