Dear Parents & Guardians,

SQMS is excited to be providing students with an exploratory day at Queens Place on Wednesday, December 19th.  Students will arrive at SQMS as normal, but bus dismissal will be from Queens Place at the regularly schedule time at the end of the day. Walking students will be able to catch a bus back to the school if needed.  Students and staff will be walking over to Queens Place in the morning, so dress appropriately!

We have many sessions that students have been signing up for over the past couple of days. Some of these sessions involve outdoor activities that will require students to dress warm and in layers and should bring extra clothing. Snacks and lunch will be provided by the school, but students may want to bring in some additional snacks. The lunch menu provided by the school will be grilled cheese sandwiches and vegetable soup.  Queens Place cafeteria will also be open as another option.

We will have morning transportation arranged for students will mobility issues. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the administration at SQMS.

** Storm date for this event will be December 20th.
