Message from Principal Schwan

SHS School Community

Happy Monday! We have concluded our SBAC Testing as well as all of the AP tests and now we will be moving onto our final iReady testing window. All students in grades 9-11 will be participating in the final iReady session in both Math and ELA. I will provide dates and times this week. This session is extra important as a school we will be digging into the data to make changes to instruction and to monitor your student(s) progress over the year. As always I am asking for your assistance in securing the best possible testing opportunity for our students. As parents if you could insure your students follow the suggestions below:

1. Plenty of rest

2. Assuring that student(s) are in attendance during the testing window

3. Contact the school if there are questions or you need to excuse an absence that may be occurring the testing window.

As your year comes to a close, I want to thank our school community for all of the support over the year. We must continue to work together while keeping our students at the forefront of all practices. Thank you for being a part of "Bulldog Nation"!

I wish everyone a happy, healthy week!"

Mr. Schwan

2023 Cell Phone Policy

As the new year has rolled out, so has the implementation of the SHS Cell Phone Protocols. As a staff we are committed to "Teaching and Learning"! Through this continued commitment, we noticed that the use of cellphones during class time was extremely being misused, causing a large disparity between "Teaching and Learning" and classroom participation. This heightened awareness has allowed our teachers the opportunity to teach more effectively and our students a much greater opportunity to learn. It is not perfect, but we will be diligent in our efforts. Please see the SCSD 303 student handbook at I greatly appreciate your continued support in providing the highest quality of education for all students!
