Student Information Update Forms Coming Home

In an effort to ensure that we have the most current contact information for student’s families we are sending student update forms home with students.  The forms will be handed out in SAS classes, on Thursday Jan. 14th and are due back Thursday, Jan 21st.   Forms should be returned to the student’s SAS teacher.  We are asking both students and parents to review and correct information.  We absolutely need the most accurate information possible for each of our students to ensure timely and effective communication with parents/guardians.  

All students should return forms and if there are no changes they should write No Changes across the form and return it to their SAS teacher.  

The forms coming home are individualized by student.  A generic form can be downloaded by clicking here.

FAFSA!

Seniors! It is time to submit your FAFSA online. Nationwide, seniors and their parent/guardians are doing this in order to be eligible for financial aid. Even if you aren’t sure of your plans after graduating, it’s important to do this just in case. Colleges, including community and technical colleges, give their funding to the students who submitted the FAFSA before priority deadlines.
