South Country School District prides itself on its partnership with parents and community. We believe that extensive family involvement is an integral component of improving educational performance and strive to improve District communications to support this goal. Parents are encouraged to contact their child's teachers and school office for more information and partner opportunities. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any suggestions that may help make our district the best it can be.

2016-2017 District Calendar
As part of our ongoing effort to “go green”, the South Country School District is joining with an ever increasing number of schools in the movement towards a paperless environment. As we move in this direction, we will be implementing more and more communication via online delivery.
Among the new changes that are being implemented is this year’s District Calendar and Directory. To save on postage, reduce printing and paper costs, the calendar will not be mailed home. Instead, it will be available online at our website www.southcountry.org in both a printable format and an online interactive service via iCal Subscribe that can connect via your mobile device or personal calendars. Along with the cost savings, this method will provide the most up-to-date information during the course of the school year as events are added, rescheduled or canceled.
To accommodate those families who may not have access to electronic forms of communication, the District has a limited number of printed copies available at each school building. Please check with the principal of your child’s school.
Please join with us as we “go green”. If you wish to connect the calendar to your cell phone, personal calendar or other mobile device, please visit the Calendar section of our website to access iCal Subscribe. This will allow you to select a calendar to receive live updates as they occur and/or customize the calendar view by school or activity. You will note instructions available for Outlook, Google, i-Phone, Android etc. We will also be updating the printable pdf version of the calendar on a bi-weekly basis.
