Every year, our school district receives funds to provide services to all students with Indigenous ancestry. The funding is intended to ensure Indigenous student success by improving school completion rates, creating a stronger sense of belonging, building cultural pride and increasing the awareness of all students.
If you would like your student to receive services from our SHSS Indigenous support workers, we require a signed consent form so that we can include your child in activities and initiatives that meet their wishes.
We have a dynamic team of Indigenous support workers at SH who are designing fantastic learning opportunities for all of our students and we hope that you will let us know if you are interested in finding out more.
You can print and sign the Consultation Form here or look for the paper copy that will come home with your child on Thursday. Please return this form by Monday, September 24th.
Last year’s Hide Tanning workshop
Collaboration Mondays at SHSS are a time for staff to co-create and learn from each other. This means a 9:49am start for our students. Buses run later than usual, so please consult the SD20 Transportation site to find out what time buses will be at your stop.
This calendar shows all of our Collab days for the 2018-19 school year in yellow.
Note: The purple Early Dismissal days in November are for Elementary Schools.
I am sure we are all feeling the effects of the smoky skies. To minimize student exposure to the smoke, we will be consulting the Air Quality Health Index daily. As per district direction, when the reading is of 7 or greater, PE and any other outdoor activities will be reprogrammed so that students can be inside.
We will let students know daily what the Index reading is so that they can make an informed decision on where to spend their lunch break.

Thank you for your support and we hope that we will be seeing blue September skies soon.
As we start up our new school year, we want to ensure that our kids are creating good work habits and are ready to focus on their learning. While we know that technology is a powerful learning tool, we want to encourage responsible use and help students regulate their phone habits during class time.
We will be using common guidelines in our classes and want to share these with you. Students will be receiving this information from their teachers and the best way to manage technology use is for us all to be on the same page.
Note: Should you need to get a hold of your child in an emergency, please call the office (250-365-7735) as we can easily find students and communicate important messages.
We are looking forward to seeing the SHSS community back in action on Tuesday morning.
The day will start at 8:33 with a homeroom class to get everyone oriented. Schedules and all necessary forms will be handed out at this time. Homeroom lists are posted on the doors at our 3 main entrances. Students will then move through their Tuesday block rotation (B-C-D-A) and be dismissed at 11:05. Buses will start running by 11:10.
Wednesday will be our first full day of classes.
We want you! Student Council is a great way for all students to show leadership, participate in activities, and share your voice with students, teachers and the community. Come and find out more on Friday, September 7th.
