New Meal Ordering Process

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The SANY mission is to provide support, challenges and opportunities for its students through education. It also remains critical that our students continue to receive safe, healthy, and nutritious food. In an effort to bridge the access to nutritious food SANY has utilized as a way for families to “order” meals.

If your student is new to SANY or you have not set up a account you will need your student(s) school ID. Should you need your student’s ID please contact the main office of the school your student attends. Reference enclosed instructions for more assistance with account set up.

Once you log into you will be on the parent home page, select the Events & Activities. You will see a list of available activities for your student, look for Remote Learning Meals (this is for students that are remote learning only), Mon/Tues Students (this is for students attending in person classes on Mondays and Tuesdays) or Thurs/Friday Students (this is for students attending in person classes on Thursday and Fridays). Look for “How To Pre-Order Meals” video on all SANY social media platforms.

Please note that Remote Learning Meals will be used until your student starts to attend in-person classes.

Should you need meals starting September 8th, the order must be in by NOON September 4th.

After September 4th, the cut-off for ordering will be every Wednesday by midnight, the week prior to when the meals will be needed.

Please watch the provided video below on how to register and/or how to order meals.

Please see link below for the my payments plus website:

In order to ensure that families have enough storage space pick up will be Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday will provide breakfast and lunch for Wednesday and Thursday; Thursday will provide breakfast and lunch for Friday, Monday and Tuesday.

We are in this together and together we will get through this interesting time.

We wish you a healthy and safe school year. 

Citizenship Academy Revised Reopening Plan

Dear Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship Elementary School families,

After assessing our reopening plan with teachers, parents, families, and community members' input, we have made some changes to our reopening plan in order to ensure the health and safety of our students, families, staff, and community, while continuing to support the social-emotional and academic growth of our students.

Syracuse Academy of Science and Citizenship Elementary school's first day of school will remain September 8th, we will begin with one (1) week of online instruction. After the initial week online, we will begin to bring back each grade level for hybrid instruction one week at a time. Following a staggered schedule to return students back to school will give the school additional time to meet with new families and prepare classrooms. It will also allow us to teach our Kindergarten students foundational skills in a smaller environment. In addition, it will give all students, whether they selected hybrid or full-time online, an opportunity to acclimate to online instruction with the full support of their teachers and administrators.

All families will receive a dojo message with your child's teacher's name, the instructional model that you selected, and if you selected hybrid, the 2 days that your child will attend in person.

Any families who selected full-time online instruction will remain online throughout the staggered return dates.

The schedule will be as follows:

➡ Week 1: September 8th - September 11th
Grades K through 5 will begin online instruction begins September 8th.

➡ Week 2: September 14th - September 18th
Families who selected the hybrid model will send their Kindergarten students to school following their scheduled days starting on September 14th. Grades 1 to 5 will remain online.

➡ Week 3: September 21st - 25th
Families who selected the hybrid model will send their First and Second Grade students to school following their scheduled days starting on September 21st. Grades 3 to 5 will remain online.

➡ Week 4: September 28th
Families who selected the hybrid model will send their Third through Fifth grade students to school following their scheduled days on September 28th. All families who selected full-time online, will remain online.

The health and safety of our school community is of the utmost importance. Staggering the return of students allows us the unique opportunity to take a measured approach to returning students back to school.

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to your student’s teacher or contact the main office at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or (315)-671-0270. We appreciate your partnership and in working with us to help all of our Atoms succeed during these unprecedented times.
