4-7-2020 Letter From Ms. Starr- Scholarship and Job Opportunities

Students and Guardians,

Happy Tuesday! I hope you all received my newsletter, please do read it thoroughly, as it has a TON of information from our staff and community.

An excerpt from our April Newsletter-
Parents! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE require your child(ren) to maintain “Aggressive” Social Distancing of GREATER than 6’. I’m hearing rumors about students riding around together in each other’s cars, walking around town, and students in relationships seen together in public places. I know these mandates are particularly difficult for our young and very social population, but the short-term disruption most certainly outweighs the potential long-term consequences for the entire community. PLEASE keep your child(ren) at home. This is so critical!
Thank you,
T Walker and SHS Staff

Scholarships-

Several scholarships were sent out to student emails this morning, if you did not receive these attachments, please contact me.

*Link to KPAA Scholarshiphttps://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/OneStop/OneStop.aspx?id=32898

*Link to KPBSD Scholarship Opportunities pagehttps://www.kpbsd.k12.ak.us/OneStop/Scholarships.aspx

 

*These applications are still very important, no matter what is going on in our crazy world, and filling them out will help take your mind off of things anyway.

 

Finally, I know the normal routine for the common scholarship application is to print out multiple copies for each scholarship however, while we are trying to reduce the spread of COVID-19, please e-mail Christy Jordan or I your finished application and we will print it out for you. Thank you! When you receive a scholarship please let Christy or I know! Whether you intend to accept it or not we would like to celebrate you and keep track of your accomplishments!

 

 

Most importantly– I hope you are all being kind to yourselves and practicing social distancing properly. I know it’s hard to feel so disconnected from everyone in this time of uncertainty but it truly is the safest method to stay healthy, and keep our community healthy! Take this time to write, read, exercise, create, invest time in your family, and friends. There are many ways to connect while practicing social distancing. Get creative with it and share your photos!

I genuinely miss you all.

Please stay safe and healthy,

Ms. Starr
