Important Senior Reminder

Seniors, do not forget that you will need to request your final transcripts to be sent to your college, they are NOT automatically sent. When requesting your SCHS Final Transcript now, you will need to place a "hold for grades" on it. Those will be sent once transcripts are finalized, approximately two weeks after graduation.

Summer School Information

We will be offering two different options for summer school this year. Students will have the opportunity to select an in-person credit recovery program or a virtual option where they can complete credit recovery or get ahead by taking a new traditional course.

If your student is interested in either of these options they must speak to their School Counselor by May 21st. In-person students can stop by the Counseling Office and virtual students can call or email their counselor for the application.

If you have questions please call or email your students counselor.
