Welcome to Southern Garrett High School

Facebook @SGHSrams
Southern Garrett High School, the largest educational facility in predominately rural Garrett County, Maryland, strives to provide students with a variety of educational experiences to meet their individual needs. By providing successful school experiences, we prepare students to become life-long learners. We challenge students to strive for personal excellence and responsible citizenship as they develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.
The mission of Southern Garrett High School, in partnership with our community, is to provide rigorous instruction within a nurturing environment. We dedicate ourselves to educate and inspire all students to become innovative, adaptive, and caring citizens who can thrive in an ever-changing world.


Holiday Lights at Broadford Park

We are so excited to bring our community some extra holiday cheer! Last year Southern High School started the Holiday Lights event at Broadford Park. We are going to be even bigger and better than last year, and need community support. Please look over the registry and see if there is something you'd like to contribute. We need items ranging $6 to $6000. The lights will be on display from Nov. 26 to Dec. 23. More details will be released in a few weeks and can be found on the school website and in the Republican newspaper. We appreciate your time and look forward to seeing you at the park!!

Cell Phone Change

Beginning with the first day of Semester II (currently January 26, 2022), students will only be permitted use of their cellular phones/devices and accessories (earbuds, etc.) during lunch shifts in the cafeteria. Cellular phones/devices should be turned off and kept in the student’s pocket, purse, bag, backpack, or locker. (This includes use of smart watches connected to networks)
Failure to follow the rule will result in the following consequences:
First offense - teacher will issue three days of lunch detention.
Second (and further) offenses - the phone will be surrendered to the office, with student pick-up at the end of the school day.
*If the issue persists, parents will need to come to the school to retrieve the phone and have a conference with administration, at which time, further consequences will be determined (ex: SWAP, Detention, or Suspension)

COVID Quarantine Information

In the event your student is quarantined from school, here is the information you need to know:
Students will be notified by the School Nurse or through the Garrett County Health Department if they are to quarantine due to close contact or due to a positive COVID test result.
Students who are quarantined will have schoolwork available on the Schoology platform and they should have access to their school-issued Chromebook or laptop.
Hot Spots may be available for students who are in need.
If you have any questions concerning the quarantine or the completion of school assignments, please contact your teachers via email

Bathroom Change

There has been a change to the bathrooms near the Band Room. Both bathrooms are now Gender Neutral Single Occupancy bathrooms. Either bathroom may be used by any individual, but there is to be only one person in the bathroom at a time. There is a thumb lock on the door. When a student enters the bathroom, they are to lock the door behind them.
Use of these bathrooms will be monitored through the camera in the hallway, and any individual who is not following the guidance provided will be subject to suspension.
