Message From Associate Principal Mike Stead
I hope this message finds you well after a week of inclement weather. As we returned to our regular routine this week, I want to extend a warm welcome back to each and every one of you.
Yesterday the district sent out important updates to our calendar for the 2023-2024 school year as a result of last week’s inclement weather days. As a result of the inclement weather days, our district will need to make up one day. Please note that this makeup day will occur on Monday, February 19 (Presidents’ Day), which had already been identified on the 2023-2024 academic calendar as one of our inclement weather makeup days. This means that February 19 will be a regular school day.
Additionally, we will need to adjust the length of the 2nd trimester to rebalance the trimesters for the year. 2nd trimester will now end on Thursday, March 14, and the teacher work day (no school day) will move from Monday, March 11 to Friday, March 15. This means that March 11 will be a regular school day, and March 15 will be a no school day. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding with these changes.
In addition to our calendar updates, I wanted to highlight a couple of important reminders as we move into early February. Course selection for the upcoming academic year began this Tuesday and will continue through Sunday February 4th. This is a crucial time for you to consider your academic path, and our staff is here to assist you in making informed choices. Counselors will be available to students in the Commons at lunch every day next week, and will also be running Flex support periods Tuesday and Thursday to assist students with course selection.
Winter Conferences are now scheduled for Thursday, February 8th, from 4:30 pm to 8:00 pm. This is an excellent opportunity for parents and guardians to engage with teachers, discuss current progress in classes, and make connections with SHS staff. We hope to see you there!
Go Bowmen! Have a wonderful weekend!
