Lunches Brought to School
If you are bringing lunch to your child at SMS, you will need to stay with your child while they eat. There are benches in front of the school for you to sit on and enjoy the lunch with your child. Lunches cannot be taken to the cafeteria. SMS will not accept any deliveries of lunches for your child. Only parents/guardians are allowed to bring food to their child at SMS.
High School Courses Offered at SMS
I-Ready Family Center link. Parents will not need a login to access it, and it will answer many of their questions about the program. It is in English and Spanish.
Explanation of Excused Absences at SMS

You have a signed excuse from a doctor or therapist
Administrative approval- this MUST be approved BEFORE the absence occurs
Documented court proceedings – you MUST bring a copy of order

Make Up Homework
Your student is responsible for making arrangements with their teachers to make up homework. If you call the school and request it, please note that the teachers require at least 24 hours in getting the information to the front office. You are more than welcome to email your child’s teacher to request homework to be taken to the front office.
SMS Phone Message Policy
Due to the students having access to their cell phones before school, between classes, during lunch and after school, you as a parent can text your child with any messages you need them to have. We are trying very hard to limit the amount of interruptions to a class, so messages will not be taken and given to students unless it is an emergency.
Sign Out Procedure at SMS
For the safety of your child, we ask that if you pick up a child, you have your ID ready and you are on either the child’s parent / guardian, on the emergency contacts, or the Annual Student Contact Form. If we do not have you on any of these lists, we will not release the child. We cannot accept a phone call that someone can pick up your child, the parent / guardian MUST come in and add the name in person.
We also stop any check out at 2:15pm.
Truancy at SMS
We have an active truancy policy for students that show a pattern of non-attendance.
