Sanford's sports physicals will be held on Monday, July 29th at 3:00 pm. In an effort to keep lines and wait times down, we ask that there be staggered arrival times as follows: LAST NAMES STARTING WITH: A-G 3:00 PM H-O 3:45 PM P-Z 4:30 PM This year it will be free of charge. A parent needs to attend with their athlete to sign the paperwork. We are also trying to send the paperwork home with your athlete to fill out ahead of time. Thank you to SLV Health for making this possible. GO MUSTANGS

Hello Sanford Nation, Just a reminder that I will be at the school tomorrow Tuesday, July 9th from 4:00-7:00pm. I would love to visit with anyone and answer questions that you have on the Yondr phone pouches. I will have pouches so that you can see exactly how they work. Thanks!

Hello Sanford Nation, I need your help, as time moves on, changes must take place to our current policies to improve our school. We, like every school in the nation, are struggling with the issue of cell phones. One concern is student engagement. In the mornings before school started, we use to see students laughing and talking with one another. Now, we see students on their cell phones. Another concern is social emotional issues that arise from cell phones. We are seeing a considerable increase in the number of students dealing with anxiety and depression. Studies indicate that time spent on platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, and TikTok can contribute to feelings of anxiety, depression, and loneliness. The pressure to present a perfect life online can lead to negative self-comparisions and low self-esteem. We are constantly dealing with students not following the current cell phone policy. As the policy stands, students can use their cell phones during passing periods and lunchtime. This isn't working out for us in the education field. Teachers are frustrated with the constant fight over cell phones. So, we need your help in making a change! Do you have any ideas on how we can tackle the cell phone issues? I'm open to any suggestions. One option I found is using the Yondr pouch. This would help our students in many ways. Schools that have implemented this have seen excellent results! I cannot find one school that has started using the pouches that has stopped. You may have recently attended a concert that uses the pouch as many are turning to this device. I'm including a video that will familiarize you with the process of using the pouches. As I stated above, I need and want your input on this matter. I will be at the school on Tuesday, July 2nd from 1:00pm-4:00pm and then again on July 9th from 4:00pm-7:00pm to discuss this issue. Please come see me and if one of these times doesn't work for you give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to visiting with you on this matter. Thank you! https://vimeo.com/703843747 Mandy Mortensen mmortensen@sanfordschools.org 719-588-1878
