In order to ensure SMHS is a place where all students' and families' needs are met, and in order to clarify involvement and engagement in the many programs and activities of the high school, we are asking all SMHS parents/guardians to fill out this survey. 

Survey Link

The information will be used during the 2015-2016 school year in an attempt to tailor offerings to the needs of the students and parents/guardians of SMHS. 

Thank you for your time.  
(Thank you to the Advanced Marketing class for creating this survey for distribution.)

Students Bringing Food/Beverages to School

Due to an increase in the volume of personal food and drink deliveries (McDonald's, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts, etc.) for students during the school day, we will no longer allow students to accept food deliveries at school. While we understand that there are sometimes special circumstances (class party, food presentation in class, etc.) that would require food to be dropped off, we cannot allow this practice to continue for personal food deliveries during the school day (for lunch or just a "special snack"). Students have access to our food service program during the breakfast and lunch hours, or they can bring their own breakfast and lunch from home if they choose not to purchase from our school program. However, these meals are not meant to be eaten in the classroom. They are meant to be eaten in the commons area. Due to these expectations, special deliveries of food will no longer be accepted by the office staff for students and will be sent back with the person who delivers them.  

In addition, we are seeing an influx in the number of students arriving late to school with outside food and/or drink product in hand. This is unacceptable. If a student is arriving late to school, their priority should and needs to be arriving to school as quickly as possible. When a student arrives late, with outside food and drink product in hand (McDonald's, Starbucks, etc.) it shows that they could have arrived to school earlier, but they chose to stop and get themselves (and, many times their friends) the special order. We cannot send the message that this is acceptable. Therefore, if a student arrives late to school, with outside food and drink product in hand, they will be required to turn the product over to office staff and will then be sent to class. Our priority for our students needs to be on them arriving to school on time, not on getting to school late due to a "coffee run".

High school administration appreciates all parent/guardian and staff support of these expectations.

Thank you.
