Online Learning Information

Dear Parent/Guardian,

I hope this letter finds you well! It's hard to believe we're already approaching the end of the 1st grading period. The year has flown by! We've had a fantastic start to the school year here at SC, and we appreciate your partnership and support.

The purpose of this letter is to provide information on our virtual learning and eLearning days this school year. We have two virtual learning days built into the school calendar for teacher professional development days. Those are November 1st and March 6th. On those two days, teachers and students will be on live Google Meets in the AM, while the afternoon will be for teacher meetings and training. The building principals will send out schedules and information very soon specific to those two days.

For inclement weather, we'll potentially utilize eLearning days, virtual learning days, and snow make-up days. We are only allowed to use up to three (3) eLearning days in a school year, per Indiana Code. eLearning days would be our "old fashion" days where lessons are posted on Canvas (grades 5-12) or Google Classroom (grades K-4) by 9:00am, and students can complete their work at any time throughout the day. Assignments are due by 11:59pm, unless otherwise directed by the teacher. For virtual learning, students are required to be on live Google Meets for at least 50% of the school day in order for it to count as a day. So those days we will use our 2-hour delay schedule like we have in the past, and live Google Meets will begin at 9:00am. The JH/HS will operate on the 2-hour delay bell schedule. The elementary school will provide a live instruction schedule for each grade level that will also begin at 9:00am.

If we happen to use up our 3 eLearning days, we'll then plan to use 3 virtual days with live instruction. While I certainly hope we don't have that many inclement weather days, if we get past those 3 eLearning days AND 3 virtual learning days, we'll utilize the built-in snow make-up days. Snow make-up days are built into our calendar on January 15th, February 16th, and April 26th.

I understand that this is somewhat confusing, which is why I wanted to provide this letter to try and clarify the differences. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the school office if you have any questions or for further clarification!

Thank you for your continued support!

Ben Anderson, Superintendent

Changes to Textbook Rental Fees for 2023-2024

Dear Parent/Guardians,

The 2023-2024 school year is right around the corner! Can you believe it? Summer flew by! I hope you were able to relax and recharge some with your family. We are gearing up for another fabulous year at SC! We can't wait to see students in just two short weeks.

I wanted to let you know that due to some legislative changes from the Indiana General Assembly this past session, families will not be charged for textbook rental, Chromebooks, or class fees as you have been in the past. I would've sent this information to you sooner, however, we've been working to understand the full extent of this new law. Most school corporations are in the same spot, working to understand the new law. We will be sure to communicate with you if additional information becomes available or on items your child/family will still be responsible for, such as band instruments or welding PPE. If your child is in band, they'll still need to rent or provide their own instrument. If your child is in welding, they'll still need to have their own personal protective equipment (PPE). Please note: students/families will still be responsible to pay for lost or damaged textbooks and Chromebooks.

We do still ask that students bring in their typical supplies (pencils, paper, crayons, folders, etc.). If you need assistance with school supplies, please let us know! Enjoy these last couple weeks of summer! Please don't hesitate to contact the school with any questions or concerns. 

Go Satellites!

2023-2024 Registration Information

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Beginning Monday, July 31st at 9:00am, South Central will open online registration via Harmony Family Access. We would like to remind you to check your demographics, update phone numbers, update emergency contacts and their phone numbers, update your email addresses, and your home/mailing address.

There are some registration forms that will need to be electronically signed. Some forms will need to be signed annually when you register online (Parent Right to Know; Active Duty; Residency Information; Work Survey; CTE; Transportation Needs). The forms are listed in the online registration section in Harmony Family Access.

If you have already registered your pre-k and/or kindergartner, you will not have to come into the school for new student registration BUT you will need to log into your Harmony Family Access account to update demographics and fill out the consent forms. You will receive an email with your student's registration code on Friday, July 28th.

All new students are required by the state to provide proof of residency. Any returning students who have moved to a new address from the one listed in Harmony are also required to provide proof of residency. Your proof of residency should be one of the following documents: Current (within the last 60 days) utility bill, telephone bill, tax return, bank statement, mortgage statement, rental/lease agreement, medical bill, and/or other official information that verifies your address. A driver's license and mailed advertisements do NOT meet the residency verification requirements set forth by the Indiana Department of Education.

Beginning Wednesday, July 26th, the school will be scheduling appointments for NEW STUDENT registration which is on Tuesday, August 1st, Wednesday, August 2nd, and Thursday, August 3rd. Please call the school to schedule an appointment. On those days, we also welcome families that cannot register from home to come to the school to register students. Please call to schedule an appointment. Also, please bring your usernames and passwords with you.

If you have forgotten your password, you will need to click the "forgot my password" link and Harmony will send an email to help you. Unfortunately, we are unable to retrieve usernames and passwords at the school.

We are looking forward to a great school year ahead!

Thank you,

SC Drama Club Presents Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel

SC Drama Club Presents Rodgers & Hammerstein's Carousel

South Central Drama Club will be presenting Rodgers & Hammerstein's historic musical Carousel. Set in 1873, Carousel follows Billy Bigelow, a swaggering, carefree carnival barker, who falls in love with and marries the sweet but naive Julie Jordan. Many of the men in this story are veterans of the Civil War and struggle with issues of anger, anxiety, and insecurity in themselves and their relationships. Billy is no exception and struggles to overcome his issues to be a better man for Julie. However, he is not necessarily successful and finds himself on a search for redemption. Showcasing renowned songs like "June is Bustin' Out All Over," "Soliloquy," "If I Loved You," and "You'll Never Walk Alone," Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical will have you laughing and crying and will leave you wanting to be a better person.

SCDC will be performing Carousel on April 28th at 7:00pm, April 29th at 7:00pm, and April 30th at 2:00pm. Seniors will be honored on Sunday after the show. According to Concord Theatrical's website, Carousel is for ages 10+, as it contains mature content and trigger warnings for intimate partner violence. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $5.00 or $7.00 at the door. Contact a drama club member or the school office to purchase in advance. Come join SCDC for their final performance of the year!

New Cafeteria Software & Parent Portal

Starting April 10, 2023, the South Central Food Service Department will be using a new meal software program called Titan.

Harmony Family Access will no longer be an option to add funds to cafeteria accounts (all other features of Harmony Family Access will remain unchanged). Any previous student balances from the old meal software program (Harmony) have been transferred and families do not need to do anything further. Additionally, student 4-digit pins have not changed.

For any questions, please view the Titan Family Portal FAQs or contact food service director Karen Hagenow.
