SBCS Countdown to Distance Learning

August 15, 2020


View this short video message from Principal Williams.

Thank you to all of our SBCS families for participating in our "Meet the Teacher" night.  In many instances, we had more families attend our virtual event than our annual open house.  Clearly, this program is an important opportunity for families and teachers to connect in this very challenging time.  If today is the opportunity to build the tomorrow that we want, many families have taken a very important first step to preparing for an enjoyable remote learning experience.  Communicating with your teacher is key.

A very important second step is to pick up your technology and materials so you are ready for the first day of school, August 17th.  Today we distributed 196 devices! That is a fantastic start on the road to success.  On Saturday, August 15th, grades 4 - 8, any families with siblings in various grades, and any K - 3 families who had a scheduling conflict can pick up their devices. There was a heavy rush of cars the first hour and a half, so consider stoppying by 11:30 - 1:00 to avoid the line. 

When Ball Charter is in session breakfast and lunch are available for pick-up M-F, 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM.
