Somersworth High School Presents:

The October Issue

We've made it past September and are diving deep into the thick of Fall. As the school year is underway we'd like for you to keep a couple things in mind: 1) Progress Reports are coming out October 5, 2015. 2) Flu season is upon us - Somersworth High School is offering a Free Flu Clinic for students - for more information see below. 3) Pumpkin Fest is coming soon - Oct. 10th - come and support our students as they fund raise for their classes and extracurricular activities!


As always we encourage you to please contact us if you ever have a concern about your student. We'd love to be of service. Happy Fall!
