SST School Closure Extended until May 4th

Dear SST Family,


The Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued an executive order to close all schools in Texas, both public and private, until Monday, May 4. The gravity of this announcement emphasizes the pressing and urgent need to shelter at home. There is no cure or vaccination for COVID-19, and social distancing presents the best course of action to stop it.


The executive order issued by Governor Abbott impacts six million Texas children, and abiding by the COVID-19 recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is critical to protecting all children and vulnerable individuals. We must each do our part to halt COVID-19.


In a recent message I stated that SST will do whatever it takes for as long as it takes. We are more committed than ever to serve SST children, parents and staff in ways that support learning and thriving as individuals, families and an educational community. All our SST family has responded remarkably to this unparalleled, fast paced public health challenge.


We are strong, resilient and innovative. We will grow through this experience by working together and by taking positive action. We will keep you updated through emails, texts and social media. Again, I am grateful to each one of you and all that you are doing.


Sincerely,

Mehmet Nalcaci

Superintendent

CARING & RESPONSIBILITY


School Counseling Services by Mrs. Graves

Dear Students/Parents:

Mrs. Graves, our school counselor has created a Google Classroom specifically for counseling where she will post daily discussion posts, therapeutic activities, and helpful strategies for students to use daily during this time. She will also begin setting up Zoom meetings to check in with students specifically on her caseload already.

The campus code for Advancement- swi3szu.
Join in and receive the use of her helpful videos to ease your worries and help with the challenges we are all facing today.


Google Classroom

Dear Falcon Parents/Guardians,

Google is letting parents snoop on their kids' school work with a new feature for Google Classroom. When a teacher invites a parent to Classroom, they can see daily and weekly summaries of what their child has accomplished, and view any class announcements. Tutorial links below will guide you through the Google Classroom. You can email to your child's teacher for further assistance if you need it. We hope this would ease the transition for DL-Distance Learning. We wish y'all best and have fun with DL during this time.

SST Food Distribution beginning Monday

In response to the school closures scheduled through April 10, SST schools are working to address the nutritional needs of our students by providing drive-through food distribution.

Beginning Monday, March 23 from 11am - 1pm, drive-through food distribution will be offered at select SST campuses across the districts Monday through Friday. Food will be provided based on one meal per student/child 18 years and under. The student/child does not have to attend SST schools in order to receive a meal. Drive-through food will consist of one breakfast meal and one lunch meal.

Distribution Sites


  • SST Discovery (5707 Bandera Road, San Antonio, TX 78238)

  • SST Corpus Christi Elementary (6633 Evans Road, Corpus Christi, TX 78413)

  • SST Sugar Land (10007 Clodine Road, Richmond, TX 77407)

  • SST Excellence (330 N Sam Houston Pkwy E, Houston, TX 77060)


Distribution Dates: Beginning March 23, 2020 through April 10th, 2020 (Date change will be announced if there is no participation at each campus)

Distribution Times: 11am - 1pm

Process: Food will be distributed to vehicles in the pick-up areas. One meal per child will be provided to children 18 years and under. No one will be allowed to enter the building.

If you need other help during this time, please visit 2-1-1 Texas or call 211. No matter where you live in Texas, you can dial 2-1-1, or (877) 541-7905, and find information about resources in your local community. Whether you need help finding food or housing, child care, crisis counseling or substance abuse treatment, 2-1-1 can help you.


SST School Closure Extended through April 10, 2020

Dear SST Family,

The School of Science and Technology will be closed through April 10, 2020 system wide (San Antonio, Houston, and Corpus Christi). This decision was made in line with guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as well as state and local health organizations and educational systems. SST administration will re-evaluate on Monday, April 6, to determine whether a longer closure beyond April 10 will be necessary.

Teachers and campus leaders will be in contact with parents and students. Two major areas that may concern you are instruction and nutrition.

Instruction: We know that there is no software program or learning packet that can substitute your child’s teacher; however, we will do everything in our capacity to minimize the academic impact of this unforeseen event.


  • During the closure SST leadership, teachers and staff will work from home to address instructional needs by providing online and print materials.


  • An online folder with instructional material (by grade and content area) will be shared with all parents and students by Friday, March 20.


  • Students without access to computers at home can pick up printed packets at their campus offices on Monday and Tuesday from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.


  • These high-quality instructional materials, designed by SST teachers and the curriculum department, are for self-study or self-study with home support and guidance.


  • Students are also asked to work on their weekly instructional software program goals by logging in through their Clever accounts.



Nutrition: Families will be able to pick up breakfast and lunch meals for students during the closure. Parents will receive more detailed information about pick up times and locations. A list of other feeding sites provided in each city will be included so parents have options for convenient pick up.

SST will continue to closely monitor the situation during the closure and provide operational updates as necessary. At this moment, our local, national and global communities are working together in service to each other and the most vulnerable individuals among us. I appreciate your patience and commitment in doing what each of us can to do minimize the impact of the Corona virus while continuing to support learning and our children.

Stay healthy, and thank you for your ongoing support,

Mehmet Nalcaci

SST Superintendent
