Student absences related to COVID-19

If your child is absent due to a COVID-19 symptom (one or more symptoms that are not otherwise explained), is being tested for COVID-19, has had a positive COVID-19 test, or has been determined to be a close contact of someone with a positive COVID-19 test, they will need to stay home from school for the full 10 or 14 days depending on the situation. When reporting your child's absence, please indicate why they are absent. Please have your child keep in contact with their teacher(s) on assignments that will need to be completed.

If the school receives a report of a positive test result and your child is determined to be a close contact, you will be notified by the school, the local health department and/or the Indiana State Department of Health (1-833-670-0067- this will be the number that shows up on your phone).


Please register your student ASAP if you haven't already done so.

The Food Pantry will be open on Wednesday, August 5th from 3:45-4:30 and on Wednesday, August 19th from 3:15 - 4 at Gate D4

Locker Clean Out

All locker contents that haven't been picked up from the previous school year will be donated on August 7th.


Approximately 600 students were eligible to swap their iPad out and upgrade to a newer model. If you weren't contacted, your iPad is a newer model and doesn't need to be updated. All SHS students (this includes incoming freshmen from SMS) should bring their iPad to school on the first day. All students will be given a new iPad case with a keyboard to replace their current case. We apologize for any confusion about ipads throughout the summer.
