Principal's Message

Whew, that was the first full week of school in a LONG time! In visiting classrooms, there are clear routines forming, deep thinking and learning occurring, and everyone is excited to be back in school. We have spent time being reflective of our traffic issues and have some new procedures for student drop-off explained below, please be sure to read through them. Additionally, our transportation department continues to make adjustments to their routes to ensure that students are arriving on time. Finally, just a friendly reminder that our students need to wear a well-fitting mask that covers their nose and mouth at all times inside, and outside when they are within six feet of someone else. Have a great weekend!

Go Bowmen!

Mr. Mitchell

Student Drop Off/Pick Up Guidelines

In order to help improve traffic flow before and after school please note the following guidelines and suggestions for the SHS Parking Lots:

  • There is no stopping or student dropoff or pick up on the driveway into the parking lot. All student dropoff and pickup needs to occur in the area in front of the school. (see the diagram below)

  • Vary dropoff times before school to avoid the congestion from 8:10-8:25

  • Vary pickup times afterschool to avoid the congestion from 3:20-3:35

  • Consider dropping off students in upper parking lot and enter the school through the commons

  • If possible, approach the school from the North on Elwert to avoid congestion at 99W and the roundabout
