SPS will not provide transportation, so parents are responsible for the drop off and pick up of their child(ren). Students can be dropped off for breakfast at 8:45 AM and must be picked up at 12:00 PM. Secondary students can attend two sessions during the day but must be dropped off and picked up at the appropriate session time. Violations of the drop-off and pick-up times will result in the student not being allowed to attend future sessions. Breakfast and a snack will be provided.

Medication/Health/Safety: Parents are asked to administer medication to their student(s) prior to attending SPS Saturday Academy. If medication is required during the session, it is the parent's responsibility to bring the medicine to the program and meet with the administrator for distribution. 

Parents are responsible for screening their student(s) daily for symptoms of Covid-19. If your student has any Covid-19 associated symptoms or is quarantined as a result of close contact or having Covid-19, they are not allowed to attend the SPS Saturday Academy until after they are permitted to return to school. We recommend the TutorU Virtual Tutoring option for the student(s).


SPS Saturday Academy will also offer Virtual Tutoring Services through our instructional support partner - University Instructors/TutorU. Students will be able to register for live virtual sessions with qualified tutors in all available content areas. Students must register and have reliable internet to ensure a quality session.
