The Garrett County Board of Education voted on January 12, 2021, to accept the Superintendent’s recommendation to remain in the “red model” in which students are learning virtually. Students will begin transitioning back to in-person learning when the Garrett County metrics are at 5% or less positivity rate and 15 or less per 100,000 for 14 consecutive days.

Anyone with a question or concern may contact, and you will receive a response.

There have been 1,760 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Garrett County. Current metrics from the Garrett County Health Department are: 7-Day Positivity Percentage: 11.02%; 7-Day Case Rate Per 100,000: 20.19.

AP Information

Greetings from Southern HIgh Guidance!
As AP coordinator, I will try to keep you posted of important information about AP this year.
Here is what you need to know and do now:
1) Please create an account for yourself in Schoology, if you have not yet done so. Then, I can add you to the AP Schoology group. I set up this group this morning and am still needing to add some parents. When you have an account, please email me so I can add you to the group. I am trying to communicate about AP through the Schoology account.
I am attaching to this email important forms for ordering AP exams. These forms can also be found in the Schoology AP group. The forms include:
AP exam order form - the priority deadline to order exams for students who are enrolled in an AP course this Fall is Oct. 23. The fee this year is $95. Students who are enrolled in any Fall AP courses, need to order and pay for their exam(s) by Oct. 23. Students who are not in an AP course until Spring, can choose to order now or wait and order at the end of January.
Parent request for reduced fee form - if your family meets any of the standards on this form, you may request a reduced fee for AP exam(s). You still need to pay $53 per exam by Oct. 23. The form needs to be returned to me, Mrs. Sincell, in the SGHS Guidance Office.
Form to verify parent knowledge that a student elects to not take the AP Exam - This form needs to be returned to me asap. This allows me to know who is not taking the exam, so I don't hold up the AP exam order needlessly(and don't keep calling you for the order and fees).
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
