All SHS Activities, Sports and Offices Relocate for Summer Renovation

Because of the extensive renovation happening to the high school this summer, including the repaving of the drive and parking lots, all summer activities and office hours will be held elsewhere in the district. Phone numbers and email addresses will remain the same.


The high school offices have been relocating to Kinsner Elementary School for the summer. All fees, records, athletic items, transcripts, work permits, etc. can be taken care of at our summer location.

The address is:

19091 Waterford Parkway

(440) 572-7100

Summer hours will be 7:00 AM - 2:30 PM

Enjoying the Summer

Summer is a great time of year for kids both small and big. There are so many things to enjoy about summer and one of them is our students get to spend time away from traditional learning in classrooms. This does not mean students should stop learning, but the learning should look different - more self directed.


Encourage your child to learn about something they find particularly interesting. So my challenge to our students and families is to learn something new each month of summer break. The topic and area is totally yours, and I can't wait to hear about your family's summer learning adventures when we get back together in August.


Have a great summer, and we will see you in August.

If you are planning on participating in athletics during the 2016-2017 school year, summer is a great time to finish your pre-participation paperwork. All student-athletes must have a physical examination form signed by a doctor and all other participation paperwork turned in prior to participation. All forms can be found at this link. Contact the SHS athletic department with any questions.
