Although school is out, the summer is a busy time for Stagg High School. Final preparations are being made for the 2017-2018 school year and we are busy completing capital improvement projects across the campus. We hope that everyone is having a safe and enjoyable break and we look forward to welcoming our newest Chargers, the Class of 2021, August 16, and our upper classmen on August 17.
Schedule release will be held on Tuesday, August 8 from 12 noon to 7 p.m. and on Thursday, August 10 from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Our Freshman and Transfer Parent Meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 15 at 7 p.m. in our Performing Arts Center. A school mailing has been sent out detailing all of the beginning of year information parents need to know for the 2017-2018 school year.
Many improvements are happening to our facilities at Stagg this summer including new bleachers for our varsity softball field, cosmetic concrete work around the building windows, and new gutter guards in our pool. We are very appreciative of the support our community provides in order to make sure that our students have the best and safest facility.
As many of you may recall, last year all freshmen and sophomores were issued Chromebooks to support our school and district’s Digital Learning Initiative. We are excited that during the 2017-2018 school year, all students will be issued Chromebooks for utilization both in and out of the classroom. The success of last year’s phase has laid the foundation for full implementation and students will receive their Chromebooks in the first days of the school year.
On a final note, please make sure that you have completed your residency verification and all physical and vaccination requirements are met before school begins. Students who have not met those requirements will not be allowed to start school on time and may result in elective courses being dropped from your child’s schedule in order to allow incoming students who have completed requirements access to electives. You attention to these requirements will ensure an exciting and smooth beginning of the school year for your child.
We hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable break and we look forward to welcoming everyone back in August! Go Chargers!
