Dear SLHS Families,

March has arrived and our scheduling for 2017-2018 school year is in full swing for our 9th, 10th & 11th graders. Students will be meeting with Mrs. Bell and Miss Grytebust during the month of March to complete their course selections for next year. For seniors, scholarship packets are available in the guidance office and are posted on the SLHS website. Most applications are due on March 31st, but some are due as early as March 27th.

Each year, the Saranac Lake High School is proud to recognize the superior academic performance of a select group of students. This year the following seniors have been named top ten percent of the Class of 2017; Valedictorian - Silas Swanson, Salutatorian - Witter Swanson, Jared Bandru, Eliza Cowan, Hayden Hartman, Aaron Hesseltine, Hannah Latour, Elodie Linck, Taylor Murphy, Alivia Sapone, Lorenzo Villani & Ethan Wood.The administration, faculty, and student body congratulate these students and their families for this outstanding accomplishment.

SLHS Music Theatre Department is pleased to announce their 2017 spring musical, Fiddler on the Roof. The production runs March 23, 24 & 25 at 7:30pm in the High School Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students. For more information, call the SLHS Music Office, 897-1473. Spread the word and be prepared for a GREAT time! 

As we approach the middle of third quarter I would like to remind parents to continue to monitor your child’s grades on the SchoolTool Parent Portal.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child’s grades, please contact their teacher. If you have not logged onto SchoolTool, I encourage you to do so. You may contact Mrs. Diana Schwartz in the main office (891-4450) or schwartdia@slcs.org for instructions if you are unsure how to do so. SchoolTool affords you the opportunity to not only look at current grades but you may also monitor your child’s attendance. The third quarter ends March 31st.

As a reminder, please refer to the school calendar when you are making vacation plans. It is expected that you make your plans within the time allotted. If there are extenuating circumstances that necessitate an absence at another time, students must obtain a Prior Notice Form and submit it to me for approval. The Prior Notice Form can be picked up in the main office or can be downloaded off the SLHS website www.highschool/slcs.org.  This form should be completed at least 24 hours prior to the absence.

Please visit the SLHS website to stay up to date on school activities, assignments and important dates.

Sincerely,
Joshua Dann, Principal
