Principal Update - October 1, 2021
The leaves are starting to change, the nights are getting cooler, and the days are getting shorter. We have just finished a round of parent/teacher conferences at Seymour High School. Parent/teacher conferences are not the only way to contact your students’ teachers. Please use email, telephone, or Harmony Portal to stay in touch with your students’ grades. If you would like to meet with a teacher, please contact student services at 522-4384.
It’s hard to believe that we are talking about graduation already, but seniors will soon meet with representatives to order graduation announcements and caps and gowns. Seniors will also participate in mock interviews this month. This is an excellent opportunity for our students to gain experience by talking to experts in their chosen field.

As I did last month, I would like to emphasize this point again. Parents, please use Entrance/Exit 3 and Exit 1 only. Entrance/Exit 2 is intended for student use only. Minimizing the left hand turns into the student parking lot off of northbound Community Drive will help keep traffic moving and the road clear. Please remember that for safety reasons, Exit 1 is a RIGHT TURN ONLY exit.
Also, if your child is going to miss school, please notify us as soon as you know of the absence so that we can excuse the absence. Call us at 812-522-4384 and choose option 2 or extension 1238. Having the absence excused in advance will prevent the student from being marked UNEXCUSED because we are unaware of why the student is missing.
As always, if you have any questions, please give us a call or an email. We are ready to help.
