Welcome to Seymour High School
Welcome to the 2016-2017 School Year!
We are off to a good start for the 2016-2017school year. Our current enrollment stands at 1488 students. So we have grown by almost 100 students since last year. The freshmen are finding their way around campus and the senior class is doing their part of assuming a positive leadership role for the underclassmen. It’s early, but so far, so good. The seniors had their class meeting during the last week of August and soon will be in the middle of their fundraising campaign by selling magazines. We also have had our pictures taken for the yearbook. Retakes are scheduled for September 23 in case we missed somebody. Our Riley Hospital Dance Marathon will be on September 24.
Of course, with more students, that means we have more mouths to feed at lunch. Mr. Reasoner and Mr. Urbanski have been working with cafeteria staff and teachers in determining the most efficient manner in which to get students through the lunch line. Power Hour runs from 11:30 until 12:30. That does NOT mean that students have 1 hour for lunch. Teachers have office hours from EITHER 11:30-12:00 or 12:00-12:30. Teachers are available to help students make up work or get extra help during office hours. The lunch line is much longer from 11:30-11:50 than it is after 11:50. Students who participate in office hours FIRST, have a much shorter wait time for their food.
More students also mean more issues concerning transportation to and from school. Students who are dropped off at school by car should be dropped off on the sidewalk on Community Drive or on the sidewalk in the Student Parking lot. For your child’s safety, please do not drop off/pick up your child in the teacher parking lot, the bus lobby, 2nd Street, or on the ditch side of Community Drive. You do not want your child crossing through traffic. At this time, the crosswalks at the corner of 2nd Street and Community Drive are the only approved traffic signals that allow pedestrian traffic to cross 2nd Street or Community Drive.
September is a busy month at Seymour High School. Parent Teacher conferences will be held from 4:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 21. There are many sporting events in which our students exhibit their athletic abilities. I invite you to support our student athletes.We have a big day planned on September 9. We are celebrating football Homecoming with our game against Floyd Central. We have many school activities planned during the week. As always, if you have any questions, please give us a call or an email. We are ready to help.
We welcome Officer Williams back for another year as Seymour High School's School Resource Officer. Seymour Community School Corporation is committed to the safety of our students and staff. Our continued partnership with Seymour Police Department allows for the presence of 3 School Resource Officers at our school sites. School Resource Officers are at all school sites at various times during the school day and school events. The School Resource Officers provide campus security and educational opportunities for our students and staff.
