Important Information from Guidance

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!  We look forward to seeing all of our students return on Monday, August 19.  There will be a new student orientation on Thursday, August 15 at 9 AM.  Student Orientation is only for 9th graders and students who are new to Socastee High School.  9th graders and new students along with their parents/guardians are invited to the school that morning for a welcome meeting and an opportunity to meet the teachers.  Administrators and Guidance Counselors will be available that morning as well as representatives with the Cafeteria and Transportation Office to answer any questions.  We look forward to seeing our new students on August 15.


For ALL students, schedules will be live in PowerSchool on Wednesday, August 14.  Guidance Counselors have been working on schedules to ensure that everyone’s schedule is correct for the start of the school year.  You can view your schedule online on Wednesday.  Please review your schedule and contact your grade level guidance counselor if you have questions.  Please check for the following:


  • Is your schedule balanced?  Are your core subjects balanced or are they all in the same semester?
  • Have you met the pre-requisite for your courses?
  • Are you classes scheduled in order? (i.e. Spanish 1 before Spanish 2, etc.)
  • Are you missing a class in your schedule?  Are all 4 blocks scheduled?


Please remember, many of you selected your courses in the spring and you will be scheduled in the classes that you selected.  If you have questions or concerns about your schedule you can contact your grade level counselor by e-mail.  Please understand that due to the volume of schedules we would prefer to receive an e-mail.  We appreciate your patience as it may take a few days to respond to all e-mails and phone messages. 



We look forward to seeing our students and we anticipate a successful 2019-2020 school year.
