Welcome Back for the 2016-2017 School Year
New Teachers at SHS and New Tech
Our Scheduling Software: Pinwheel
SHS and SMS have moved to a new scheduling software, named Pinwheel, for 2016-17. Pinwheel enables faculty, staff, parents, and students to subscribe to our school’s athletic calendars and activity calendars. Users have the ability to receive messages about and updates to the calendars via text and email. Please visit www.trypinwheel.com to create an account and start following the calendars of your child’s activities.
We are looking forward to utilizing this enhanced method of communicating with our faculty and families about SHS activities.
Student Financial Aid Night
The Scott County Community Foundation will once again be having a scholarship and financial aid information night. Students and parents are invited to come to the SHS Commons on Wednesday, August 17th from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.
Scott 2 Drug Prevention Initiative
Scott 2 School Board recently passed the Student Random Drug Testing Policy for students at Scottsburg High School. Students electing to be in athletics, extra-curricular and co-curricular programs, or students who drive will be included in the random drug screen program.
Here is the link to the new policy: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1RLmVFmwd02yc5EMFtAt6g4e1vnvg1p2DJJJcZvHA3T
In addition, Scott 2 has partnered with our local law enforcement, including the K-9 Unit, as a part of the county-wide drug prevention initiative. As part of our partnership, we will be periodically conducting searches in our buildings.
After School Credit Recovery
Credit Recovery after school is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, August 16th. Students may stay from 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays to work on their online courses. Transportation is provided by Scott 2 after the class is over. We hope that our SHS students will take advantage of this great opportunity to make up credits in the evening.
