Principal's Update

It has been a very good start to the school year, so far, as the transition from summer has gone well for our students.


It has been great to see so many students and families at our events. This past week I had the pleasure of seeing boys' soccer, freshman football, and varsity football. Our students really represent and show their spirit. I encourage all students to come out and enjoy the great fall weather with our teams.

YOUTH CHEERLEADERS JOIN SHS CHEERLEADERS UNDER “FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS”

Last Friday (8/19) the Strongsville High School Cheerleaders were joined by over 100 youth cheerleaders (1st - 8th grade) for the season opener of the varsity football season. Their participation at the game was a result of attending a cheer camp in July, organized by the SHS Cheerleaders. At the camp, the youth cheerleaders learned cheers, chants, and the “Hey Song” dance, which they were able to perform at last Friday’s football game.

“HERE COMES THE BUS” APP

'Here Comes The Bus' is an app for SCS families to track busing information and routes for their student(s), as well as real-time notifications. The app and complementary website - available on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop, or personal computer - enables parents to see the location of their child’s school bus on its daily route. Download the ‘Here Comes the Bus’ app to monitor daily transportation information. Families that utilized the app last year will need to delete last year’s student information and add their current year information in order to receive the latest routing details and updates. Click HERE for additional information about the app.

After two years of free meals for all students in our District, we will be transitioning back to free, reduced, and paid statuses for student meals. If you believe your family may qualify for free or reduced price school meals, we encourage you to complete a Free & Reduced-Price Meal Application online, which may be found HERE. The online form must be completed by Friday, September 30, 2022.
