SHS Weekly Update

March 26, 2022

Principal's Update

This week we disciplined quite a few students for vaping and bringing in substances that are against our student code of conduct. This is an issue that we, as a school, want to address directly. I have recorded a short video explaining the events of the week and our stance moving forward as it relates to our plan to cut down on this issue in the school.


As always please reach out to me with any questions.
