Road Closing

Saturday, January 18, 2020, Ford Chapel Road will be closed for approximately eight weeks. The road is being closed so construction work can be completed on the Skybridge from Sparkman 9th Grade Academy to Sparkman High School. It will reopen on March 2, 2020.

For years, traffic on Ford Chapel Road has been stopped or altered so students could walk from one school to the other. Ford Chapel Road was designed to be an access to Jeff Road. Once this skybridge project is complete, that road will be used for its original purpose. We realize this is an inconvenience, however, in the long run, the project will provide safety for children and a quicker route across the road.

Also, we are encouraging motorists not to drive through the parking lots of Sparkman 9 or Sparkman High. This would put our children at risk. Student safety is our number one priority. The car rider map for both schools is posted below. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

PowerSchool Tips

Parents, thank you so much for beginning the process of registering your students for the 2019-2020 school year. Here are a few tips to help you during the registration process:

  • If you are NOT finished uploading your documents, DO NOT click submit. You must SAVE & EXIT to come back to it at another time. If you submit, you no longer have the opportunity to make additions or changes. The registration is locked at that point. To make changes or to upload documents, you will have to notify the local school registrar. The registrar is the only one that can make changes or additions after you click SUBMIT.
  • All students should have the requested documents uploaded prior to the beginning of the 19-20 school year (currently enrolled and new students). Our goal is to have the most up-to-date documentation on file for your student.

  • Madison County Schools requires a Huntsville Utility bill as one proof of residency. Harvest Monrovia Water bills are NOT accepted.

  • A second proof of residency should be uploaded (deed or lease or property tax statement or mortgage statement).



Check-outs are strongly discouraged after 3:00 p.m. due to traffic and the proximity of the end of the school day.

MySchoolFees Discontinued at S9GS

Going forward, S9 will no longer offer the option for parents to pay with credit cards via myschoolfees. We hate to see this program go, but cannot justify it to be the best use of funds at this time.
