FALL 2020 REOPENING
(Updated September 25, 2020)
South Central is returning to 100% full attendance on Monday, September 28th. Please note that families may still utilize the fully virtual option but it will not be as robust as physical attendance at school. South Central will also once again utilize late-start Wednesdays. Beginning Wednesday, September 30th (and continuing each Wednesday thereafter), the beginning of the school day will be pushed back by 30 minutes.
As a reminder, please note that LaPorte County and Governor Holcomb's mask orders are still in place, so students will be expected to wear masks during specific times of the school day when social distancing cannot be maintained.
