A Message From the Superintendent

As the school year comes to a close, I would like to thank everyone for the part they have played in helping us make it through this year successfully. Now more than ever it has truly taken a team effort to complete this school year. I want to remind parents that we will continue to have lessons available through the month of June, if you would like to continue in home learning. Expanding instruction for our youngest students can have a tremendous impact on their academic career. The rate at which our primary and intermediate students are able to learn new concepts is incredible when compared to adult learning capabilities.

We are currently in the process of preparing for the upcoming school year and whatever it may look like. We are fully anticipating that our students will return in August and are adjusting how we will conduct school in the midst of a pandemic. We have already ordered infrared thermometers for every classroom and are looking into how we can adjust our classrooms to maximize the space between students.

I want to wish all of our incredible mothers a Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Secretary's Day to our Secretaries

Even with school closure and social distancing in place, campus administrators found a way to let their secretaries know how much they appreciate them. Tokens of appreciation included flowers, gift cards, sweet treats, future lunch dates and cards.

How do you know you work with the best?!?! When you get flowers personally delivered to you at home for secretary's day. Thank you so much David Lynch and SHJH. I can't wait to get back to work ~ Suzanne Barlow

Spring Hill ISD Receives National Athletic Trainers’ Association Safe Sports School Award - This Program recognizes high schools that prioritize keeping young athletes safe

Spring Hill ISD is the recipient of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA) Safe Sports School award for its athletic training program. The award champions safety and recognizes secondary schools that have met the recommended standards to improve safety in sports. The award reinforces the importance of providing the best level of care, injury prevention, and treatment.

“Spring Hill ISD is honored to receive this 1st team recognition from NATA,” said Katie Billingslea, Head Trainer. “We remain committed to keeping our student athletes safe during physical education classes, team practices, and games so they can accomplish their own goals of great competition, winning records, fair sportsmanship, and good health. Our goal is to lead our athletics program to the highest safety standards for our players.”

“The health and safety of student-athletes is critical as it has both immediate and long-term effects,” said NATA President Tory Lindley, MA, ATC. “NATA created the ‘Safe Sports School Award’ to recognize and champion schools nationwide that are committed to enhancing safety in sports. We are proud to see the list of award recipients grow exponentially each year as schools see the immense value in holding themselves to best practices and policies that ensure a high standard of athlete care.”

In order to achieve Safe Sports School status, as Spring Hill did, athletic programs must do the following:

· Create a positive athletic health care administrative system

· Provide or coordinate pre-participation physical examinations

· Promote safe and appropriate practice and competition facilities

· Plan for selection, fit function and proper maintenance of athletic equipment

· Provide a permanent, appropriately equipped area to evaluate and treat injured athletes

· Develop injury and illness prevention strategies, including protocols for environmental conditions

· Provide or facilitate injury intervention

· Create and rehearse a venue-specific Emergency Action Plan

· Provide or facilitate psychosocial consultation and nutritional counseling/education

· Be sure athletes and parents are educated about the potential benefits and risks in sports as well as their responsibilities

To apply, schools complete an in-depth questionnaire that assesses adherence to best practice standards and recommendations. For more information about the Safe Sports School Award, please visit www.athletictrainers.org.
