    Good Afternoon, Brave Nation!


    All of us at SHS would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful start we have had for the 2020-21 school year. The students have taken all of our changes in stride and are adjusting flawlessly to the new guidelines. I am so proud of our students and staff for their ability to adapt to whatever obstacles and challenges come their way. In my four years at SHS, we have not had a school year that has not presented a challenge or obstacle for SHS and the community to overcome.  From thousand-year floods, to hurricanes, to a pandemic, this staff, these students, and our community have risen to the challenge every time. It is such an honor to be the principal of SHS, and we always strive to make our community proud!

    Today marks the interim of the first quarter of school.  Please take a moment to check your student’s grades on PowerSchool, especially since we will not be sending a paper copy home this year. Instead, you will receive an email on Monday giving you access to your student’s interim. If you have any questions about your student’s grades, please contact their teacher.  We will continue with the Hybrid Model the week of October 12 through October 16.  No determination has been made at this time for the week of October 19 through October 23; that determination will be made next week. 

    Moving forward, we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of our students and staff.  Our custodial staff has done a tremendous job cleaning our building every day, and I would be remiss if I did not thank our teachers for all the cleaning they are doing between each class. It is definitely a team effort by all to keep our high traffic areas clean. While eating lunch in a classroom is not ideal, our cafeteria staff has done a tremendous job prepping food every day for staff members to deliver to the classrooms.  

    If we have a staff member or student with a positive COVID-19 case at SHS, we will complete contact tracing. If your student has been in a classroom with the staff member or student, you will receive an email and phone call from me notifying you. DHEC will also provide you with a letter that I will attach to my email.  

    Tonight, our Braves Football team will travel to Conway to take on the Tigers at 7:30 p.m.  I hope to see some of you there. Next week is our homecoming week, and our Braves will take on the Panthers from Carolina Forest. The game will be televised, so the start time is 7:00 p.m. Please visit our athletic website, socasteeathletics.com, to purchase your tickets online. Enjoy your weekend, and it’s a great day to be a Brave!
