- We have a little bad news for SHS students who have been using the microwaves in the cafeteria. It has been determined that the electrical wiring capacity in the cafeteria isn't sufficient to operate the cafeteria equipment and the microwaves too; so unfortunately, the microwaves have been removed. We appreciate our Sparkman PTO for providing the microwaves the past few years and regret that students will no longer be able to heat lunches at school.

You may send check(SHSPTO) or cash in a sealed envelope addressed to Sparkman PTO to the SHS or S9 office. You may also pay online at My School Fees on the SHS website. Look for PTO heading, then blanket. Please include in the comments section: your name, student's name, an email and telephone number. Last day to order is August 26!

Bus routes are also in an adjustment phase and once the route logistics are worked out, then pick up/drop off times should be fairly consistent throughout the year. Please let our schools offices know your concerns. Our administrators need know of the problem areas, so they can be fixed.
