SHISD Welcomes Adrian Knight, Assistant Superintendent of College and Career Readiness

On Monday December 9th the Spring Hill ISD Board of Trustees approved the hiring of Adrian Knight for the position of assistant superintendent of college and career readiness. Mr. Knight currently oversees the Region VII career and technology education program for the entire region. Mr. Knight is a graduate of Spring Hill High School and currently resides within the district.

The Spring Hill Board of Trustees and the district leadership team are very passionate in assuring that our students are fully prepared for the world in which they will enter once they leave the halls of Spring Hill ISD. We also believe that aligning our course offerings to the job demands of East Texas will benefit both our students and the greater Longview area.

With guidance from Mr. Knight our junior high began offering a career explorations class in which they are able to investigate careers while in 8th grade. These students are also learning about the career and technology opportunities they will be able to choose from while in high school.

Chase Wildt with Wildt's Wiring Speaks to Aspiring Electricians at SHHS

I had the opportunity to speak to a class full of aspiring electricians at Spring Hill ISD’s electrical class. They were extremely intrigued and asked a lot of questions about what to expect in the trade for their futures. I didn’t expect many to pay attention, but they were all intrigued! They were asking a lot of great questions and even stayed after the bell rang to let them go home! The fact that they considered me to be their guest speaker was both flattering, and inspiring to me. I am thankful that they had me and hope that I helped inspired one or more to hop into a trade that has been more than great to me! ~ Chase Wildt, Owner of Wildt's Wiring

A Message From Nurse Jaymie Walton

Spring Hill Parents,

FLU season has arrived!

Common signs and symptoms of the flu are fever greater than 100F, coughing/sneezing,

headache, body aches and extreme fatigue.

Please help us minimize the spread of the flu by keeping your student home if they have a fever

greater than 100F. Your student must also be fever free for a full 24 hours WITHOUT the use of

fever reducing medications like Tylenol or Ibuprofen before they can return to school.

Good handwashing, staying home when running fever and exhibiting flu symptoms and yearly

flu vaccines are the best way to protect your family and reduce the spread of the flu.

Thank you for helping us keep our Spring Hill students healthy!
