School Calendar Updates and Reminders for January 2019

With schools closed three days for inclement weather thus far in the 2018-19 school year, the
following adjustments have been made to the school calendar:

-Thursday, January 17 is now a full day of school for students. The end of the first
semester (second grading term) is January 22. Report Cards will be released on Tuesday,
January 29.
-Wednesday, January 23, is now a professional day for staff in the afternoon with a three-

Parent Email Groups

In an effort to improve communication between the school and families, the high school has created parent email groups. We now have the ability to send out notifications to families based on a whole school format or by grade level. We are striving to send out SGHS news once a week to parent/guardian email addresses. Please direct any questions or email address updates to the main office.
