SHS Weekly Newsletter #4

Dear Bowmen Families and Students,

Homecoming is such a special time. It’s a tradition of welcoming back alums and members of a community to an organization in order to reminisce and remember both its origins and its current existence. Homecoming gives as an opportunity to think back on a storied past and enjoy an amazing present. This year is unique for us because this is the last Homecoming celebration that we will host on this site. That comes with excitement and anticipation as well as sadness and perhaps even a sense of loss for the many who have walked the halls of the current building or competed on the current fields. We hope that what we have planned will lend itself to honoring who we are and who we have been as well as preparing us for who we will become in the future. And we hope that you have plans to join us sometime next week!

We invite you to join us for all of the events surrounding our Homecoming week- the community Lip Sync performance night, a variety of sports competitions hosted at SHS throughout the week, the Homecoming Parade on Friday afternoon and of course the football game on Friday night! We are excited to celebrate all things Sherwood High School and look forward to seeing you there! If you have any questions about events, please feel free to reach out and let us know! It’s going to be an amazing time for our community. Thank you for your support! And as always, Go Bowmen!!

Food and Item Drop-Off

We ask families to plan ahead whenever possible and to not deliver non-essential items to the high school. Every note that we send to our students is disruptive to the learning environment. Please ask yourself if your student truly needs this item today, before delivering. 

Parents may meet their student at the front of the school during their student’s assigned lunch and hand-deliver items directly to their student.  If a student or parent orders food to be delivered, the student must meet the delivery driver at the front of the school during their lunch or after school.  The Main Office will not sign for or hold pre-paid orders.

Sherwood High School does not accept food (including homemade lunches), beverages, balloons, or flowers in the Main Office.  We reserve the right to turn away other items as needed.

Food, beverages, and athletic gear for after-school events may be delivered to the Main Office, but please plan ahead whenever possible.  Students may pick-up items after school or at their release time. Notes will not be sent to students for these items. If you deliver clothing or shoes, please place them in a bag and label with your student’s name.

Thank you for helping us provide an uninterrupted learning environment for our students.

Dropping Off and Picking Up Students

Parents, it is prohibited at all times to use the Staff and Student Parking lots to drop-off or pick-up students.The west entrance (next to Soccer/Baseball Fields) on Meinecke is for staff and buses only! PARENTS MUST use the east entrance on Meinecke (at the stop light) and drop-off or pick-up students on the east side (Stadium side of school), then proceed around the turnaround and exit back out on Meinecke.
