Community-Wide Announcements & Reminders

Health Reminder

If you test positive for Covid-19, please contact the school nurse Angela Hildreth RN, BSN at

Calculating Return Dates if you are positive:

Day 0: Onset of symptoms or positive test whichever was first.

Day 1-5: Isolate at home.

Day 6-10: Return with mask as long as fever free for at least 24 hours and symptoms have improved.

Student Pick-up/Drop off Procedure

Drop-Off: If traveling Northbound enter the main entrance at Davis Witty at the SHS sign. Drop off your student and turn right out of Simeon Wilson back onto Boston Post Road. If traveling southbound on Boston Post enter Simeon Wilson, drop your student off and exit left onto Boston Post Road. This will help maintain a steady flow of traffic. (see picture below)

Pickup: For pickup if entering Davis Witty and you are not able to turn left into the pickup area. Please form a line on the side of Davis Witty in the gravel portion. This is so that we can maintain bus flow into the school. Robin Bowkett will be monitoring the traffic line to get all the parents through.

Important notes: Please do not attempt to turn left onto Boston Post Road off of Simeon Wilson. This backs up Simeon Wilson Road substantially. Please do not turn around at the student pickup/drop off area.

Grading and Reporting

Click here to review the latest changes that are being implemented this year regarding grading and reporting!

Info Center

Summer Reading: This year, Souhegan Reads returns to our pre-pandemic annual summer reading program. We provide a list of options, found here on this website. This list of options is purposefully expansive, as we seek to provide diverse options, as different types of books appeal to different readers. Every Souhegan student should pick (at least) one book from these options to read over the summer. Copies of all books on the list are available physically in the Info Center & on eBooks or audiobook via Sora. On Monday, September 12, we will host a full school summer reading event in which students have a chance to connect with other readers and develop community through books. This year we will have 54 groups facilitated by our staff. We are also excited to have 11 groups with student facilitator partnerships.

The Learning Commons is a space at Souhegan where students can work, rest, and get support. Drop-in tutoring in math, reading, and writing is available often. Check the Learning Commons Support Schedule to see what support is available during each period. Students can also get more information in the Learning Commons section of the Library + Learning Commons Google Classroom.


Next Week’s Athletic Schedule

Full season game schedules can be found here.

9/22-Media Day: A new Souhegan Athletic’s tradition. The schedule for the day is attached here. This will also be our first seasonal Media Day, where members of the local media will be invited for team, player and coach interviews and to get some action shots at practices. The Amherst Citizen, Nashua Telegraph, Union Leader, WMUR, NH-High School Sports, and Friday Night Lights NH have all been invited. In future seasons, this will be done at the end of the pre-season and uniform hand out will happen that day as well.

Club Day 9/22: Extra and Co-curricular activities fuel learning by stimulating creative thought, improving social and organizational skills, developing unique interests and talents, and offering you the chance to discover and do something you really enjoy. So, if we’ve captured your imagination, check out club day from 3-3:30pm on Sept 22nd.
