School News

LINK The 2020/2021 School Directory can be found on the Sycamore homepage under documents/Family section.
Health Screen Update:  Due to the recent increase in COVID cases we have decided to postpone the annual health screens until after the first of the year.  Students opting for remote learning still need to comply with health screens.    Due to the ongoing pandemic and if you so choose, you may choose to submit one of the below options in place of your student being screened this year.  In addition, if your student in grades 1st-4th have had a health exam or vision screening in the last 6 months or will soon have an exam you may submit these results and your student will not need to be screened.  The student may also be excused from hearing, vision, and/or dental screening if parents bring a signed statement from a physician, PA, or APRN stating that the child has had these screenings done in the past 6 months.
