  • Questions About Vaccination and Quarantine

    To promote health in our school community, the School strongly recommends that individuals receive the vaccine if they are able, but we are not requiring it for students and employees. New York State has not communicated any plans to require vaccination for students and school employees, but we would be subject to any mandates from the State should it become a requirement. We will update families should any changes occur to this policy.

    At this time, New York State is not requiring any quarantining or testing for asymptomatic domestic or international travelers.

    Please note that the School does not have space to host students for an extended quarantine if they contract COVID 19. Families should have a plan to pick up their student within 48 hours in the event that their student needs to quarantine, especially if they elect to not receive the vaccine before coming to campus this August.

  • Summer Classes

    Registration and the full summer 2022 course catalog can be found here.
  • The Portal

    The Portal ( my.sbs.org ) is the primary means for students and families to view information about class progress, assignments (including summer assignments), individualized calendars, school events, and other resources for day-to-day life at SBS.

    It is also how you will access the Health Forms, Handbooks and Back to School Forms

    Parents can use their email address as their username to log into the portal.  Students are required to log in with their SBS email addresses.

    Please contact Tech Support if you questions regarding the portal ( techsupport@sbs.org ).
  • Health Forms

    All health forms will be available by the end of May and are to be submitted through Magnus Health via the Portal. Parents can access Magnus by logging into the Portal and selecting “Resources” and then “Magnus Health.” This is not required for students who applied to our Gravitas program (completely online for the whole year).



    Please note that students do not have access to Magnus Health. Through Magnus, you can download the forms, update vital health information, and access your submitted forms throughout the year. You will have the option to upload your forms online, fax or mail to Magnus to update your child's records. Please do not submit paperwork to the School.

    Given the current situation surrounding COVID-19, we understand that there may be some delays in scheduling your child's annual physical exam. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you find yourself in this situation, and we will work with you. 

    Please contact Mrs. Morhaim  (anita.morhaim@sbs.org) if you have any questions regarding Health Forms or Health Center policies.
  • Back to School Forms

    For questions about math placement, please contact Mr. Stortz (stephen.stortz@sbs.org).
    For questions about language placement, please contact Mr. Grant (james.grant@sbs.org)
  • Registering for Classes

    Returning students will begin registering for classes in April, and need to complete their Course Registration by May 20, 2022.

    New students will be contacted in late June with details on how to register for next year's courses.  Please note that new students WILL NOT BE ENROLLED FOR ANY CLASSES until they have submitted to the school (registrar@sbs.org) their child's Final Transcripts from 7th grade through the present year.  A late registration increases the possibility that a student may not get their desired classes.

    Please contact the Registrar at registrar@sbs.org with questions regarding registration and/or academics.


  • Textbooks and School Supply Lists

    You will find the textbook list for the 2022-2023 school year posted on the portal on the Textbook Information resource board. Class materials are still being finalized and will be posted when they are available.
  • Technology Requirements

    The school does not specify any particular computing device. Each student should have access to an internet-ready computing device with a physical keyboard. Smartphones can be used for checking emails and looking up information, but each student will need another device that is larger than a phone for school assignments. We recommend that all students have a Windows or Mac laptop computer. Having a physical keyboard is especially important for writing assignments.  Internet access is necessary for checking email and completing assignments.

    Please email the Tech Services Department at techsupport@sbs.org if you have questions.
  • Packing List for Residential Students

    A student packing list is available here and also on the Portal under "Back to School Information."

    Please contact our Director of Student Life, Mr. Dustin Mones (dustin.mones@sbs.org)  with any questions you have about packing or residential life.
  • New Student I20 & F-1 Visa Information

    We continue to monitor the latest guidance and information about this pandemic as it pertains to student immigration. We receive updates from the U.S. Student & Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) and the Department of State (DOS). The U.S. government also makes these updates available for the public. If you would like to read this guidance directly, you may access it by visiting Study in the States: COVID-19 Resources.
     
    As the situation evolves, we encourage you to monitor visa processing and travel updates through your local U.S. consulate. For additional measures such as specific port-of-entry screening processes, as well as travel restrictions, please consult the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), U.S. Department of State, and your local government agencies.
     
    Once the F-1 visa is received, please email a copy to our DSO. 
     
    If you cannot get an F-1 Visa or travel restrictions prevent you from entering the U.S. to start classes in August, please be in contact with our DSO at admissions@sbs.org.
  • Dress Code and Handbook

    The 2022 - 2023 Student Handbook is available on the Student Resources page of the Portal by the start of school. The dress code can be found in the Student Handbook. 

    Please note that policies and adjustments may be needed as new guidance comes from the Center for Disease Control, New York State Department of Health, and other organizations throughout the year.

    Gravitas students can also find a resource board that contains the SBG Student Handbook on the resource page as well.
