School Closure 2020


May 29, 2020

Sylvester Families,

I hope this letter finds you safe and well. June 19th will be the last day of school, and we want a strong finish for all students. To do this it is important for students to complete work in all courses. Please make sure they dedicate an average of 20 minutes/day for every subject. Now is the time to check Synergy. Missing assignments are marked as N/C and completed assignments are marked as P, please reference this video if you need help checking grades. 

To ensure they feel supported, remember your student’s advisor is the first point of contact. 

Please also remind your student to attend their Subject Areas Office Hours for support as well as Advisory’s Zoom on Monday. For additional academic support, go to the Sylvester website under the Academics tab labeled “Success Team” to receive the supplemental tutoring and college readiness support we have offered throughout the year. 

Students will be able to purchase yearbooks May 25th through June 8th. Here is the link to the website for purchasing and contact information for the bookkeeper. Pick-up details are still to be determined. Just in case you missed our letter last week we compiled a heartfelt message as a staff!

Take care of yourself and your family and remember,  “We are in this together and will do our best to get through this together.”
