How to use a sign-up sheet. Each sign up sheet will have a date, time, location, and a description. It is important for you to read the description so you know what the activity is and what to expect. Signing up is important so we can arrange transportation, get tickets, and get enough supplies for activities.
How to check out items. You need to meet with a Rec. Therapist when you check something out. You can check out sports equipment, games, and other items.
How to access the Student Activity Room. There are laminated sheets in the SAR with the rules on them. We just ask that you be respectful of each other. In the evenings, you need to sign up in the HSW ofice in order to access the room.

ScenicView Academy Student Group on Facebook. We encourage you to join that group to get more information on community events.
Signing up for Activities. For many activities, we have sign-up sheets. They are located at the front desk in a binder. We have deadlines for signing up for certain activities because we need to plan transportation, supplies, and tickets. It is important that you follow the sign-up sheet's guidelines. Each sign-up sheet will give you a date, time, place, and a description of the activity and when the deadline is. Please read the sign-up sheet in its entirety. If you forget any of that information, check the sign-up sheet first. If you have further questions, visit with a Rec. Therapist. We encourage you to write down any activities you are attending in your planner, so you won't forget. For activities with a deadline, we ask that you change your mind before the deadline. If you drop out of an activity at the last minute, you will be responsible for the cost of that activity, unless you are able to find a replacement. If you have an emergency, please visit with a Rec. Therapist. We do not want to punish you for coming to activities, but we do encourage you to be responsible and follow through with commitments.
