Welcome to Seymour High School
We are well into the second nine weeks grading period, report cards from the first grading period have been distributed, and students and teachers are continuing to work hard. Please remember that ALL students will be taking final exams this year. The final grade in a class is determined by the combination of the first nine weeks grade (40%), the second nine weeks grade (40%), and the semester final exam (20%). There is a lot of time left to influence a final grade. The grading policy is explained on page 27 of the student handbook. Also, we areexcited to announce that our newsletter is available at the following link.

Counselors will soon be meeting with freshmen and their parents to discuss their four year plans. Students who have yet to receive a Chromebook will do so on November 2. After this date, all Seymour High School students will have the technology that makes us a 1:1 school. Thanks to the Technology Department and to the Seymour Community School Board of Trustees for allowing this to happen!
Our winter athletic teams have been working hard and preparing for the 2015-2016 season. Please check the web site, daily announcements, and the student handbook for the basketball, wrestling, gymnastics, and swimming schedules. We appreciate your support and attendance at SHS athletic events.
