  • SHHS Updates for the week of 11/23

    Dear Parents and Guardians, As the superintendent stated in his letter on Saturday, all schools will remain learning remotely. While we continue to adjust how we engage with and teach our students, our dedication to them remains the same. Our teachers are available before and/or after school for extra help. If your child needs additional support, I encourage them to reach out to their teacher for time to meet one on one, or to visit during their online office hours which can be found here. In addition, our clinical support staff: school social worker, Amy Walsh, our school psychologist, Jennifer Kuhn, and our student assistance counselor, Gina Donahue, continue to be available to support students and their families. Their contact information is on our website, or you may email them by clicking on their name. The schedule for next week and other updates can be found below. Monday, November 23rd - ODD day, regular bell schedule, all students and staff will be remote. Tuesday, November 24th - EVEN day, regular bell schedule, all students and staff will be remote.

  • Youth Leadership Initiative

    Local, state and national elections are excellent opportunities to educate students on the democratic process and increase civic engagement. At Sleepy Hollow High School, students have been participating in a nationwide mock election for two decades. Executed by the University of Virginia Center for Politics as part of its Youth Leadership Initiative (YLI), the mock election is the largest secure, student-only, online mock election in the nation. The program offers each school the ability to tailor the ballot to each student’s home legislative district.

  • Rose Ceremony

    Dear Parents and Guardians, We regret to inform you that after repeated attempts to hold the fall Rose Ceremony, we will have to postpone the event until the spring. Due to the recent COVID-19 reports, we believe that it is in the best interest and safety of both students and families to reschedule the event for a later date. Traditionally, the spring ceremony is when our first graders bid farewell to the senior class. Since we are postponing the fall ceremony, we will combine the welcoming of the first graders with the celebration of our graduating seniors. The spring ceremony is scheduled for May 20, 2021, and it is on the district calendar. We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2032 and the Class of 2021 at that time. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Please know that your children’s safety is at the forefront of all of our decisions. Sincerely, Tracy Smith Torrance Walley High School Principal W.L. Morse Principal
