Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Dear Families,

As we look forward to the upcoming months, we need your help in contributing to our Virtual Career Day! Do you, or someone you know, have interest in being interviewed by one of our Smith students for our Virtual Career Day Series? We are looking for entrepreneurs, business partners, government and city employees, first responders, and many more to create a series of virtual interview videos so that our students, both in-person and virtual learners, can learn more about what you do! If you or someone you know is interested, please contact We know our students will love learning more about you do and about career opportunities for themselves.

We hope that everyone has a great 3-day weekend and a wonderful week of learning!

Courtney Rodriguez,

Covid Guidance for Students

If a student is exhibiting these symptoms, please keep them home and call our nurse.

  • Cough; difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Severe headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
  • Feeling fevering or having fever greater that 100 degree F.

If someone in your household has Covid, or is suspected of having Covid (even if waiting for test results), or your child is exhibiting any of the above symptoms, please fill out the self-reporting form below.

When students are home due to quarantine, they can participate in their school work on Canvas so that they don't get behind. Logging in to Canvas each day and completing assignments counts as their daily attendance.
