Dear Stagg Chargers,
As I have shared in many communications this past month, our culture of “Say Something” is an important component of individual, group and community efforts to maintain a safe environment for all of our students. Where as recent events have shown schools across the nation adopting the “Say Something” motto, I am proud to say that at Stagg High School, we have embraced and supported the “Say Something” campaign for the past three years. It is not something new to our community and its focus on both individual and school safety has provided an excellent foundation to deal with the current societal challenges our students, parents, school and community face. We will continue to enhance and expand our efforts as we move forward, and we are encouraged by the adoption of the “Say Something” program by our partner districts and the support we have received from our first responders. With that being said, I am proud to share that….
Amos Alonzo Stagg High School has been awarded the 2017 Say Something Week Student Spirit, Creativity and Sustainability Award by the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation!
This award recognizes the following:
Student spirit, creativity and ownership: Demonstrated that Stagg students led the Say Something Week efforts and used their own creative voice, spirit and expression to make the week a success.
Community Reach: Demonstrated Say Something Week reached the broader Stagg community, including parents, school/youth organization staff, community leaders, media, first responders and community members.
Sustainability: Demonstrates that the Stagg Community has concrete plans, a calendar and commitment to sustain Say Something throughout the year.
Our Say Something Committee will be heading to Raleigh, North Carolina this month to be officially recognized at the national Sandy Hook Promise Youth Summit.
Important Spring Reminders
As we enter into the final months of the school year, there are several events and activities that are important for the following school year. Among these is the Annual Residency Verification Process. Every Stagg family must complete ARV each year for their child to attend school for the following year. A number of dates are made available for parents to bring in their residency documents during the spring.
The final dates for the Annual Residency Verification are:
Wednesday, April, 11, 2018 - 8:00 a.m. to noon and 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 5, 2018 - 8:00 a.m. to noon
It is important that this process is completed so your child can begin the 2018-2019 school year on time. Students of families who have not completed ARV will not be allowed to start school until the process is complete. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Guidance Office.
Freshmen physicals and senior vaccinations are also due prior to the beginning of the school year. Seniors must have a second Meningococcal vaccination before beginning their senior year. Failure to have a freshman physical or having vaccinations updated will prevent a student from beginning the 2018-2019 school year. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Health Services Office.
On a final note, any unpaid balances on school accounts must be paid in full before the end of the school year. Unpaid balances may prevent students from being able to obtain their official transcripts which are required for post-secondary education institutions and potential employers. If you have any questions, please contact our Cashier's Office or the Main Office.
