Attention Junior Parents: Your son/daughter received the following information regarding our upcoming ACT exam in February.  This exam is free of charge and will be offered on the SHHS main campus,  virtual testing is not an option for this exam.  There are two documents that should be completed by next Thursday, January 21st.  If your child is certain their career path will not require an ACT score submission, please scroll to the bottom of the email and complete Google Form and Opt-Out form.  

Please note two things: one, testing will occur on Wednesday, which is a short day.  To ensure all students the opportunity to complete their test and to offer lunch for those who choose to eat on campus this day, the busses will pick up the main campus students at 1:30 PM.  Two, if your child receives testing accommodations, their schedule will look differently and may test on a different day, based on what was approved by ACT.  I will call those parents and notify the students of their testing accommodations and alternate testing date/s.  If you have questions, please use the below contact information.  Thank you!
