Sutherland Middle School Virtual Supply List 2020/2021

 We are excited to begin the school year and are looking forward to working with our students and their families  Below you will find a list of strategies to support your student in setting up a space to work from home as well as a suggested school supply list.  If you need assistance with school supplies, please reach out to the counseling department.

To help start the school year off successfully, we recommend:

  • Establishing a regular schedule for your student(s) based on the schedule provided by the school;
  • Creating a study space that is conducive to learning;
  • Reading all school communications and updating contact information as it changes.  Our main method of communication will continue to be email. Please check the main ACPS page for updates from the county;
  • Encouraging independence, but recognize that this format may be challenging for your child and continue to support developing organizational skills and strategies with your student;
  • Checking ParentPortal to monitor your students work completion;
  • Assisting your child in maintaining contact with friends, both virtually or through social interactions that comply with CDC-recommended social distancing measures; and,
