Principal's Message

In just a few short days we will be opening our doors to welcome our students. We have been eagerly awaiting the return of our students, teachers, and staff.  As we look ahead to the 2020-2021 school year, we will be faced with the challenge of creating a new way to view, approach, and address education. Teachers are in the process of preparing digital learning platforms for remote learning, preparing classrooms, and creating lesson plans that address the various learning needs of our students. Custodial staff and maintenance are creating plans and processes for ensuring the health and safety of our students while ensuring that classrooms are prepared for student learning.  Administration and County Office personnel are diligently working to create schedules, plans, and procedures for students, staff and teachers, that allow for a conducive learning environment that is safe. Our current plan is to conduct a virtual Open House that will be posted to the SSHS website and to FaceBook on August 13th. 

Students will be able to come to pick up a map of the school (9th grade only), printed schedule, and a calendar that indicates their student grouping: A, B, or C. Students will also pay their $15 Tech fee (cash - exact change please or check). In addition to the Tech fee, Juniors and Seniors will purchase Parking Passes for $20, if desired. The pick up days are:

  • Freshmen & Sophomores: August 12th from 9:00am-Noon and 2:00pm-4:00pm 
  • Juniors and Seniors: August 13th from 9:00am-Noon and 2:00pm-4:00pm.  

Please come to the table  located at the bus parking lot entrance. Students will not be allowed in the building, and we ask that masks are worn as you approach the table. Please practice social distancing if someone is being helped at the table.   Please continue to be patient with us during this process as we continue to work on ways to make this transition to remote and face-to-face instruction as seamless as possible. If you have additional questions or concerns, please contact the school. We will be happy to provide you with information as it comes available.

I look forward to a great year!
