Sumner class of 2020 Family:
We truly miss our Sumner Family!!!
Sumner Family and my Class of 2020are working on how we can celebrate our students. As we know this is a tough time and we are preparing ideas and ways we can still celebrate them. Please email and call if you have creative ideas for our students!
On Monday, March 23 we will be serving meals for students at 26 Saint Louis Public School sites to Saint Louis City students and families. The program serves bagged meals for breakfast and lunch, Monday - Friday, 8:00 am to noon. The meals will be for any student, regardless of their school site (charter, public or private), and families will be able to collect food for the entire week if they choose. Please find the nearest location to your home out of those 26 schools and you can visit that site. No need to visit your child home school if the distance is far from your house. “Stay in Place” order issued by the city, county and Illinois DOES NOT prevent grab-and-go operations run by schools, as confirmed by these entities. We appreciate our Food Service Department, our vendor and our Student Support Services Department teams for leading this effort on behalf of public, private, parochial and charter schools.
Our number #1 priority at Sumner is educating ALL of our students. While we know learning is an important aspect, safety of ALL is critical. As we are ensuring both our students and staff are safe, we are creating a system to allow our teachers to come and pick up essential items in regards to academics. We are currently working extensively with the district to ensure we get up and running online with more efficient ways of communication as it pertains to academics. Please be patient with us as we will be preparing instructional materials for your child and expect to hear back from us on April 6, 2020. While this process is taking place the district has provided instructional packets at the sites to pick up along with the bagged meals for all grad levels. If you would like to access the materials online please follow the link https://www.slps.org/keeponlearning to access. No assignments should be submitted online at this time nor should teachers be assigning graded materials. Everything is for enrichment purposes only. Grades are not to be issued at this time. More information will be forthcoming regarding the issue of grading. In addition, at the link above you will find information on the Charter Spectrum offer of 60 days of free Internet and Channel 9 is also televising lessons.
Social distancing concern/Other additional support:
SLPS has developed a student and family help line to provide social work intervention, counseling and support. The District’s direct hotline for students and parents requiring social and emotional support is (314) 345-6900 or email@example.com.
Parents if you need to pickup medicine Please call (314) 371-1048 to set an appointment to retrieve medicine. Parents must have identification and the name of the student’s medicine to pickup.

I believe in the ideals of good citizenship
Both in my school and in my community
I resolve to obey the laws of the school
To respect its traditions
To be respectful and obedient to my teachers
To be courteous and kind to my school mates
To do my work as thoroughly as I can
To be punctual in attendance
And clean in mind and body.
