Hello SkyHawks!

I hope that you are enjoying a relaxing Summer! It’s hard to believe that school starts in just two weeks, on Friday, August 6th. Classes begin at 8:30 AM and end at 3:30 PM. Therefore, our Office hours will be changing to 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

For those of you who are new to Summit, we send out this “From the Nest” to families each Monday. However, we thought you might want the following information a little sooner since we have a lot going on.

  • For our 9th grade parents, our Freshmen Parent Orientation will be on Monday, July 26th, at 6:00 PM, in-person, in our Summit Gym. You will need to wear a mask in order to enter. We have lots of important information for you in order to help your 9th grader be successful in high school. You won’t want to miss it.

  • Student Business Days begin next week (get your schedules, pick up textbooks, take your ID/yearbook picture, etc.) See below for the flyer if you are interested in ordering school pictures.
  • August 2nd – Seniors (see below for times by last name)

Last names M-Z is on August 3rd from 8:30 AM to 3:00 PM in the Summit High Gym. Students will receive their class schedules, pick-up their textbooks, take their ID/yearbook photo, & get a campus tour from their Link Leaders.

  • Laptop distribution for freshmen & new students will be on June 29th and June 30th.
