Student ID Cards
We are happy to inform you that student ID cards have arrived to Sagamore this week after a long delay due to COVID 19. Students have been receiving the cards in homeroom. The cards have bar codes which can be used when purchasing lunch in the cafeteria. This helps reduce surfaces being touched by multiple individuals. Student ID numbers are not printed on the card, they are incorporated into the bar code that will be scanned. Lanyards are provided along with the card. Our expectation is that students will wear their ID badges throughout the day, while at school, for security purposes.
This is a school-wide policy, as all faculty and staff will be wearing their ID badges as well.

Survey- Willingness to allow your child to be COVID Tested at School
District Survey - This survey asks about your willingness to have your child COVID tested at School if our community is designated a yellow zone. Your response to this survey does not bind you to testing. You will receive a testing consent form that would be completed before your child is tested if we are mandated to test.
Holiday Travel Links
Dr. Pellettieri, Superintendent of Sachem Schools, shared information about holiday travel in a community notice on November 20, 2020.

The district asks that all families who did travel over the holidays, or at any time, follow the quarantining and testing protocols before returning to school.
