Dear Parent or Guardian: On Thursday, October 19, 2023, at 8:45 AM the District will be conducting an emergency evacuation drill involving all UPK-12 students and staff. The purpose of the drill is to familiarize South Lewis students and staff with procedures to be used when evacuation of the building and/or campus is necessary. The New York State Education Department recommends school evacuation drills as part of the New York State Commissioner's Regulation 155.17 and the United States Federal Government Homeland Security Act (HSA) of 2002, Pub. L. No. 107-296, 16 Stat. The general plan for the drill will include: • Informing staff and students that this activity is a drill and not a live event. • A building fire drill and/or lockdown may be utilized during the drill. • When directed to do so, students and staff will be moved to "safe zones" identified at each building. The safe zones may include gymnasiums, cafeterias, athletic fields, the bus garage, or other on-campus locations. School administration and staff will review the drill with students and staff at each "safe zone" and/or relocation site. • In previous years we have had students and staff load buses as if they were being evacuated from the campus to an alternative off-campus site such as a local fire hall. However, for the purpose of the drill this year, the students will not be loaded onto buses and/or brought to an alternative location. • The drill will conclude and students will return to their buildings and classrooms to resume the normal day. We would like to thank you and your child(ren) for your cooperation in helping to make this drill a success. I would encourage you to discuss with your child(ren) to take the drill seriously and to use it as a learning experience. The safety of our students is of great importance. This drill will help us be prepared should a real situation take place that requires a lockdown, internal movement, building or campus evacuation, and/or cooperation and communication with emergency services/personnel. Lastly, please be aware that your access to our campus and your child will be restricted during the drill from approximately 8:45 - 9:30 AM. Therefore, we ask that on Thursday, October 19th you plan accordingly for any on-campus needs or visits between 8:45 - 9:30 AM. If you have questions or concerns, please contact your child's building principal or me. Sincerely, Douglas Premo Superintendent of Schools

⚽️ Our on-campus summer soccer clinic, hosted by the Utica City Football Club was a great success! 35 participants focused on ball handling, footwork, skills, and drills. Thank you to the Utica Football Club, and South Lewis Coaches for your time and dedication, and thank you to our students and families for taking part and making this experience possible.
Look at these South Lewis high school students: Living their best lives and making the most of the summer! Shown here are a few students learning the art of the English language with Mrs. Duell, and one student who is getting back to basics by studying life on a cellular level with Miss D'Ambrosi. Keep up the great work, everyone!
These high school students know the benefits of summer learning: some are exploring the science of our living environment with Mrs. Kaiding, and others are learning the basics of good health and well-being with Mr. Bernard. Thank you, students, for staying motivated during the summer months, and thank you, educators, for keeping our students on the path of educational success. "Together we can do great things."
