School Loop gone, Infinite Campus on the way

SRCS is in the midst of switching our systems over to a powerful new product: Infinite Campus. Stay tuned for announcements from the school about when Infinite Campus will be ready for student and parent access.

A message will be delivered to the student so he/she may be excused from class.
