Shark Bites

Informational bites to let you know what's going on!

Welcome to Smith Intermediate!

Hello Smith Sharks! The Smith Intermediate staff is excited to meet everyone soon! Below you will find information on virtual Meet the Teacher videos, phone calls home for all face-to-face students, and more. Also, please check out our plan for re-opening school! We will send another newsletter before Monday explaining our traffic routes, as well as Virtual Student Grab & Go Meals, etc. We look forward to the start of a great year!

Virtual Meet the Teacher & Phone Calls to All Families

Our teachers are working hard to create videos and slideshows to introduce themselves to our students and families! Videos will be going out on Friday via email, newsletter, and will also be posted on our website.


In addition to virtual meet the teacher videos, our teachers will be calling all face-to-face homeroom students (and parents) on Friday to introduce themselves to you, get to know you, tell you room numbers, verify transportation, etc. We can't wait to get to know you!

A Note from our Nurse

We are excited to welcome your students in just a few more days! We know many students keep medication in the school clinic for daily or as needed use. Please consider dropping those medications off over the next few days prior to school starting.


You can also call and make an appointment with the school nurse should you need to speak with her regarding any health concerns for a student. If you are sending medication with your student to school, please make sure to fill out the parent permission form for each medication.
