Our Media Center is now open and staffed for students from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students wishing to ride the activity bus should get an activity bus pass from one of their classroom teachers.

A New Friendly Face in the Media Center

After 23 years of service to Shakopee High School, Ms. Moriarty retired over the summer. We congratulate her on her retirement, are grateful for her time at SHS, and wish her much happiness in this next chapter of her life!


Please stop by the Media Center to welcome Lynn Fountain to our school as our new afternoon Media Center Assistant. We are excited to have Ms. Fountain join our staff!
