2020-2021 Student Schedule
SHS school counselors spent some time last week meeting with students (virtually) with schedule conflicts and proposed options for potential solutions. We ask that you continue to be patient and proactive as we finish this process. We try our best to accommodate each student's scheduling need, however, scheduling conflicts can create some compromises within student schedules. Please contact your teenager's school counselor with any concerns. Students will have the first two weeks of school in Aug/Sept. to make any schedule changes.
Final student schedules will be available on Powerschool two weeks before the start of school.
As in the past, student schedules will be available to view and print on PowerSchool at 4:00 PM on August 24th. Students and families that may have lost their username and password or are new to Scituate High School should contact the school at 647-4120. We ask that parents and students remain patient with any schedule errors as our guidance staff is working hard to “clean up” any loose ends. https://scituateschoolsri.powerschool.com
