Coffee talk & cookies
Be on the lookout for a coffee bar in the high
school cafeteria, offering hot and iced coffee ($1.25 and $2
respectively), as well as flavorings. Pair your choice of coffee with a
fresh-baked, smart snack-approved cookie for 50 cents.
Planning ahead: Please note test dates
Athletes, parents/guardians and SCS sports fans please note for planning
purposes: Some of the dates on which SAT and ACT tests are offered
conflict with regional and state competitions. Specifically, Nov. 5 SAT
conflicts with Fall Regionals; June 3 SAT conflicts with Spring
Regionals; June 10 ACT conflicts with Spring Regionals. Being aware of
these dates helps with advance planning.

Body Mass Index is part of required school health check
New York State Education Law
requires body mass index, or BMI, and weight status group to be included in
a student’s school health examination. The State Health Department
also surveys some schools concerning BMI each year.
Prescription drug alert
Many young people believe it is safe to take
medicine out of the cabinet even if it was not prescribed
for them. And many of today's prescriptions are written for pain
medications that can be deadly, addictive and in some cases lead to
the use of very dangerous illegal drugs like heroin.
Education is the key. Parents: speak to your teens
about the dangers of misusing prescription drugs and why they should not
use other persons' medications.
