Use the link:https://www.scholastic.com/bf/skinnernorth to start shopping the book fair today! We're also working to provide our classrooms and libraries with more books. If you can help in this quest (previously called teacher wish lists), consider purchasing a gift card and sending/addressing it to: Skinner North New Books. Send it to the email SNbookfairwishlists@gmail.com. This will directly get many new books into the classrooms and library our students use next year.

School eligibility for student COVID testing is based on city data on COVID-19 rates in zip codes, which are updated monthly.
