Dear SDMA Families and Staff,

It has been great to see so many students and parents at school this week for schedule/chromebook pick up and freshmen orientation at MHS, and at 6th grade orientation at MMS. Training was held for new teachers this week and the rest of the SDMA staff will be in next week to get ready for the 2023-2024 school year.

In addition to the summer update that was emailed at the end of July and the Back-to-School Newsletter that was mailed out this week, here are some reminders and important information about the beginning of the school year.
