SPS Family Feedback on Reopening of Our Schools – November 2020

Important: Please complete a separate survey for each child in your family who attends SPS.

Our school district's focus for this school year has been to develop a safe school environment for our students and staff that prioritizes everyone's well-being and enables high levels of learning for all. 

Now that our educational program has been up and running for eight weeks, I am asking that every family complete this survey so that we have a sense of how things are going for each of your children.  If you have more than one child in the school district, please repeat the survey separately for each of your children, as having information specific to each school and grade level will be very helpful to us. 

Thank you very much for your assistance and your continued support of our schools.

Respectfully,

Joe Sawyer

Superintendent of Schools
