January's Staff and Student of the Month


Mrs. Wilson is our school nurse. Mrs. Wilson takes care of the SHS study body every day with unlimited kindness, compassion and empathy. We all greatly appreciate the grace and diligence you have shown while you deal with the constant challenges of Covid. You are always willing to lend a helping hand. Thank you for all you do to keep SHS a healthy environment.


Addy is a senior at SHS. Addy was chosen for student of the month because of her selfless and positive attitude. This school year is obviously not what she thought her senior year would be like but she has tackled all challenges with a smile and upbeat attitude. She encourages others and you just can't help but be in a good mood around her. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and goes above and beyond what is expected of her. She has a great sense of humor and she is an outstanding role model.

Congratulation to these two outstanding individuals!!!

All current sophomores will participate in the PSAT assessment January 26th. It is very important that your student be present to test on this day. The PSAT is not just for college bound students, but provides free information to students about their career choices (access to a website that correlates scores to occupations) and provides teachers with information on ways to help students achieve more in English and math classes. Additionally, students who are intending to go to college will have score report information that enables them to focus on areas necessary for success on the SAT.

COVID Reminders

  • Students MUST wear face coverings on the bus and at SHS.
  • Students will be given 2 masks to wear or keep in case they forget their mask.
  • Desks will be wiped down at the end of each class.
  • Students should wash their hands often throughout the day.
  • There will be 6 lunches instead of the standard 3 lunches.
  • Lunches 1, 3, 5 will be in the cafeteria.
  • Lunches 2, 4, 6 will be in and around Garrett Gymnasium.
  • Students must practice social distancing guidelines.
  • Students can't loiter in the hallways at this time.
  • Any student or family that questions whether they should come to school because a potential positive COVID test of a close contact should contact SHS prior to coming to school. Please be aware of your symptoms and be responsible.

Face mask Guideline Changes

Face mask guidelines have now changed for different types of face covering that are acceptable

or unacceptable to wear. At this time, neck gaiters made of fleece, polyester or one-layer nylon

will not be permitted due to the lack of protection they offer when a person speaks, sneezes or

coughs. Bandanas of any material are not permitted.
