Are your friends and family looking for a great school for their children? Did someone you know miss out on a seat in another school's lottery? Refer them to SLLIS for a bilingual, transformational education! You'll earn $25 when you refer an eligible family to take a virtual SLLIS tour. If the family enrolls, you'll earn a $100 gift card!

SLLIS has been busy preparing for the coming year! We know we can best deliver our dual language immersion program onsite (and did it safely for all of 20-21!), so we urge our families to participate in onsite, in-school learning. We also know being in school is not possible for all, so we are offering Virtual Learning as an accommodation for those who require it. Please review the information attached here (https://5il.co/vnxv) to learn how to apply for a Virtual Accommodation. The deadline for Virtual Accommodation applications has been updated to Friday, July 23. If you'd like to review the safety measures on campus for 2021-2022, check out our Safe Return to Instruction Plan here: https://5il.co/u9v0.
The summer mailer is here! Go to https://www.sllis.org/browse/226144 to print individual items! Deadlines will be extended by one week to accommodate the physical mailer being sent later than expected.
