If you have questions or concerns, please visit the SHS Student Support in your Canvas account for help.   Thank you!
It’s time to change the batteries in your household smoke detectors. Teachers in Zoom breakout rooms have observed the sound that indicates that the batteries in some of your home smoke detectors need to be be replaced with new ones.  Stay safe SHS!
Reminder, don’t forget to change those clocks back one hour Saturday night, October 31.
The Girls Tennis Team just wrapped up an eight week season. This season was one that no one will forget because of the current climate of Covid-19 and the restrictions that were placed to keep everyone as safe as possible.  Thankfully, we were able to have a season in 2020.  That being said, our girls team competed in the Edwardsville Sectionals on Oct 16th and 17th and did an incredible job of competing at a high level against some very tough competition. The varsity players competing at this event were Sophmore Megan Becker, Senior Astra Nimavat, Junior Julia Mitra, Sophmore Sheelah Ingebrigtsen, Senior Elise Huffstedtler and Freshman Nischi Korrapati.  A special congratulations goes out to Nischi Korrapati for finishing 4th place out of 20 participants in the regional meet. Her strong play qualified her for the state finals, but because of Covid-19 restrictions, there will be no state meet.  Job well done everyone!
And now the Pledge of Allegiance!

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
