Sanford's new Distance Learning Website

Switching from the traditional classroom setting to Distance Learning is new territory for students, families and teachers. To aid in this transition, we have created a website to support all families in this new process of Distance Learning. Information will be posted on the website including important links for your student to continue their learning.  Please visit our Sanford Distance Learning Website to view assignment calendars, connect with teachers, and find resources available during this time.
