SHS Administration Team Message

August 13, 2020

Big picture

We hope this message finds you all healthy and ready for your students to return to school. Our teachers have been preparing diligently and are very excited to see their students!


Each student will have their own chromebook to check out from the district. This device will go home with students. It will be the responsibility of every student to care for their chromebook, including bringing it to school fully charged. The device will be passed out during advisory on the first day(s) of school.

In order for your student to receive a chromebook during their first advisory, please review and sign the following two forms and have your student bring the signed form with them on their first day. They will return the form to their advisory teacher. The first document is for chromebook use, while the second shows the most commonly used applications and websites students will access.

Printed copies will be available in the main office foyer of Severance High School if needed.

School Supplies:

In an effort to simplify the back to school process for our students, the teachers have collectively made a list of supplies that students will need. This list will include most items needed for both the first and second quarter. Please understand that there may still be some specialized supplies needed in specific courses (Ie: a sketch pad for Drawing), but this list will allow the students to begin their year with learning tools in hand. Teachers will inform students of any additional needs during the first week of school, and also post on their canvas pages.

Tomorrow's communication will include information on at-home learning, and more return to school details.
