Principal Update - Spring is Almost Here!

posted Mar 9, 2021, 12:40 PM by Beth Dean

It is almost Spring!


As the weather warms up many students typically start pulling out some of their lighter clothing to wear at school.  Due to this, I want to send out a friendly reminder related to our dress code policy at SHS.  


  • No clothing that promotes drugs, alcohol, or has explicit language

  • Students should show proper attention to personal hygiene.

  • All clothing must fully cover the belly and buttocks for males and females, and undergarments should not show during normal activity.

  • Shorts and skirts need to be worn at an appropriate non-offensive length.  Shirts and tops may not reveal excess amounts of chest, shoulders and back for both males and females.

Thank you for all your effort in keeping SHS a school where the primary focus is student learning.


                                                                                        David Miles II - Sandpoint High Principal

posted Feb 17, 2021, 1:19 PM by Beth Dean

An Open Message to the Students from Principal Miles-

posted Feb 4, 2021, 9:46 AM by Beth Dean

Hello All,

 
I hope you had a great first semester/term 1 and 2!
 
I'm glad we were able to successfully complete half a year without too many interruptions and I'm looking forward to the second half of the year.
 
I have two things I hope you can help me with:
 
1. We are running out of masks to give away each day. I give out around 110 daily. We will eventually run out requiring you to bring your own. Please try your best now to remember to bring your own mask each day so we can extend the time we can hand out masks to those who are truly in need or forget. 
 
2. Please be aware of your garbage. We are finding an increase in breakfast, lunch, and mask garbage in the mornings and evenings. With the fluctuating weather patterns, they are getting wet, breaking, and freezing to the benches and ground where they are being left. Please try to get your garbage into the garbage cans provided so we can keep a clean and professional looking atmosphere for visitors!
 
I appreciate all the efforts you have been making this year. If you have any questions or concerns you would like to share with me I am always interested in having conversations.
 
Thanks,

Welcome Back - 2021

posted Jan 4, 2021, 6:43 AM by Beth Dean

Hello All,


I am very excited to see you all again for the new year. I am looking forward to a better year though I have been impressed with how our community found solutions to the difficulties faced this past year. I look forward to continued progress and problem solving as we close out this challenging school year.


A few reminders:

  1. Please come back ready to continue our safety protocols with a renewed vigor. I know it’s easy to forget, become overwhelmed, and feel ready to move on but we must continue to do our best to maintain the safest possible environment. I am willing to be uncomfortable and inconvenienced from time to time to keep school open and I hope you will also choose to do so as well. These protocols include: a) wearing a face covering at all times, b) maintaining social distancing, and c) following proper hygiene practices such as washing your hands often and staying home when you are not feeling well.

  2. The end of Term 2 is fast approaching! The last day of this term is Jan. 29th (a non school day). Progress reports will be sent after this week to help you identify your current progress. The time will fly by quickly so be sure to continue your academic progress. Talk with teachers and counselors and if you have any questions or need help completing your classes. All IPs from last spring will also need to be completed by this time.

  3. Please remember class work is on Schoology for almost all classes. You should be checking your class sites and completing work everyday whether you are attending school in person or not.

  4. If you are involved in any extracurricular activities or athletic teams for SHS, please help us follow the new protocols from the State of Idaho. It is paramount we follow the guidelines in order to continue to offer sporting events this season. You can read the guidelines here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Oztu2rnBbdbWYBamTr89hOw032DM_fv-/view?usp=sharing



Thank you again for your continued support and please feel free to reach out to me with questions, concerns, or suggestions.
