Dear SLHS Families,

Believe it or not, May is here and June is just around the corner! Both months will move very quickly and summer will be here before we know it. However, there is still a great deal of work to accomplish between now and June 23rd.  In order for students to achieve at the level they are capable of, it is important that students are at school every day and on time.

The week of May 8th-12th is designated as National Teacher Appreciation Week, with Tuesday, May 9th being National Teacher Appreciation Day. Time is set aside to provide students, parents, administrators and community members the opportunity to express their gratitude and appreciation for the hard work and dedication that our teachers demonstrate every day. The Saranac Lake High School is fortunate to have well-respected and exceptional teachers. I want to thank them for their tireless efforts to make the SLHS a place that both challenges and cares for its students.

The SLHS is hosting our Ninth Grade Open House on Tuesday, May 16th, from 6:30pm - 8:00pm.  The Open House will begin with a meeting in the gym at 6:30pm.  After the meeting, students and families will have the opportunity to tour the school and visit classrooms. Clubs and groups will also be available to share what they are doing and to answer any questions. We hope you and your family can take advantage of this opportunity to see what is going on at SLHS. Refreshments will be available.

As the weather gets warmer, I want to remind everyone of the dress code. Garments such as tube tops, net tops, halter-tops, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines (front and/or back) and see-through garments are not appropriate. Shorts, skirts, dresses, jumpers, rompers, pants and similar outer garments must have an appropriate and modest length and fit. Students who are in violation of the school’s dress code will be asked to change into more appropriate clothing. Discretion may also be used to determine if a garment is inappropriate for school due to being too short, too tight, and/or too loose.

We’re excited about finishing the year strong as we head towards graduation. As always, please feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or comments at dannjos@slcs.org or by calling 891-4450.
