Required Documents Cover Sheet
Families are strongly encouraged to upload their tax documents directly via the Family Portal. If you cannot for some reason, you'll need to mail any required tax documents along with the cover sheet found in the SSS Family Portal. After you log in, click on the “My Documents” tab in the upper right corner. Click the “Print Cover Sheet” link on that page to print our customized cover sheet. Make sure to mail your documents at least 10 days before your school deadlines time. You will find our regular and overnight mail addresses on the cover sheet as well.
