Campus Speed Limit Reminder

Please remember to observe the 15 MPH speed limit on our campus driveway, and please be cautious and courteous when dropping off and picking up students. The driveway is used by pedestrians, caretakers of horses, and riders. For the safety of our riders, please be aware of quick movements, and fast moving people, bicycles, balls, and dogs near or around the outdoor arena, and keep bikes away from the stable parking lot. We would like to keep all of our SBS riding students safe so please be cautious on the driveway, around the gym and Geissler building, and the riding ring.

School Forms Online Reminder

Parents and guardians should have received an email about our new School Forms Online (SFO) for the 2017-18 school year. SFO is an online-based system for student data that reduces paper use and streamlines the forms process. Forms are easy to update and submit, and every form automatically includes contact and other information already supplied to SBS.

If you have already returned your forms via the SFO system, thank you. If you have not yet returned forms for the 2017-18 school year, please do so.

If you have problems accessing SFO, please contact communications@sbschool.org with your name, the name of your student, and your email address.

Remember: There are several paper forms linked to within SFO. Please return those completed forms to: Stoneleigh-Burnham School, attn: Shelley Futter, 574 Bernardston Road, Greenfield, MA 01301 or sfutter@sbschool.org.

If you have questions about your daughter’s medical information, please contact Jenny Potee, Director of the Health Center: jpotee@sbschool.org.

Federal Student Aid

For U.S. families of seniors: Did you know that families planning to send a child to college next fall can file their FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) starting now? The U.S. Department of Education moved the FAFSA filing date up to October 1.

The benefits of the earlier filing date are:
Families will now use 2015 income and tax information.
This will eliminate the need for families to estimate incomes when completing the FAFSA.
FAFSA applicants can retrieve their tax data directly from the IRS.

For more information or questions, please contact College Counselor Lauren Cunniffe at lcunniffe@sbschool.org or 413-774-2711 x280.
