Opening School Information

Opening School Information for Parent(s)/Guardian(s) and Students

Welcome back for the 2017-18 school year. A significant amount of additional information is included in the SAHS Parent Newsletter, which will be e-mailed and posted on the Web site. 

Following are some of the beginning of the school year informational items:

Informational Items:
  • Students need to have their schedules with them on the first day.  I recommend that they take a picture of their schedule with their phone. Student schedules are on Home Access Center (HAC).
  • All North Montco students will start on August 29th.  North Montco opens on the same day as SAHS this year.
  • Upon receiving this email please feel free to come to take a self-guided tour of the building Mondays through Fridays, 8:00 AM until 3:30 PM.
  • Freshman Orientation is scheduled for Friday, August 25th, from 7:40 AM to 12:00 PM.  Buses will pick students up at their regular stops and return them home.
  • Freshman will receive their IDs on the first day of school.
  • A Freshman Tailgate will be held on Friday, August 25th, from 5:00 – 6:30 PM in the Parking Lot.   There is a $4.00 admission charge, which includes a ticket to the football game.
  • On the first day, Tuesday, August 29th, all students will report to their 5th Block classes upon arrival to school. 5th Blocks have not yet been assigned. You will receive an email when they are assigned.
  • All students taking English courses are reminded to prepare for assessments on their summer reading within the first week of the course. For a list of titles required of each grade and level, please see the District Web site:

  • Back-to-School Night is scheduled for Wednesday, August 30th, beginning at 6:30 PM.  Parents will follow their students' schedules that evening and will meet the teachers for their First Semester courses. Please plan on attending this very important evening event. Please use both the Halteman and Lower Road entrances.
    • Parents of seniors should attend a college admissions presentation by our counselors at 5:30 PM in the Auditorium prior to Back-to-School Night on August 30th.
  • Student Parking: Only students with parking stickers will be permitted to park in our student lots.
