    SHS Weekly Update for October 18

    Spartan Families: 

    Parent-Teacher Conferences 

    Remember that sign-ups will remain open until Monday 10.18.21 @ 12:00 pm. Please note that conferences are primarily intended for families of students who are struggling in their classes. This information is shared with you since you may not be able to schedule a conference with every teacher.  You may also notice some teachers will have limited slots because they are split between two buildings.  You are encouraged to contact your student’s teacher via email if you do not see an available time slot that works with your schedule. 

    Links to the SHS & LCTC teacher conferences may be found on the SHS Communications Corner page. 

    There is no school for students on Wednesday 10.20.21, as staff will be engaged in their District Teams and Professional Learning Communities. Thursday 10.21.21 is a half-day with all six periods running. The schedule is attached. Students with a LCTC course will report to the South Cafeteria instead of reporting to their regularly scheduled class.

     

    Picture retakes are Friday 10.22.21 in the PAC lobby.

    All the best!

    YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE! SO Talk and Talk Often. They Hear You.

    TALK - THEY HEAR YOU

    SAMHSA's "Talk. They Hear You." We Do Hear You PSA-60 Seconds - YouTube

    Research suggests that one of the strongest influences on a teen's decision about drugs and alcohol is the open relationship with their parent or caregiver.  Research also shows that parents/caregivers are the number one reason young people decide not to drink.

    SAMHSA, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's Campaign Talk, They Hear You provides information, resources, and tips to help any parent or caregiver start, and continue, these vital conversations with the teen in your life. 

    Concerned about your teen contact the Student Assistance Provider at your school.

  • Friday, October 15, 2021 | Student Check Out Process

    Posted by SHS Administration on 10/14/2021 2:00:00 PM

    Dear SHS Parents and Guardians,

    Our students have done an amazing job with spirit week and everyone is looking forward to the festivities surrounding Homecoming weekend. The first event is the Homecoming assembly on Friday, 10/15. The pep assembly is slated to occur outdoors at the athletic stadium. The weather forecast for tomorrow is not favorable. If the weather does not cooperate, we have backup plans to still offer a shortened pep assembly in the Competition Gym.

    In the event you need to check your student out of school on Friday, 10/15, please do the following:

    Send your student to their Assistant Principals office first thing in the morning with a note from you.

    Mr. Stromberg (Business Office): Last Names Beginning with A - G

    Mr. Mitchell (Main Office): Last Names Beginning with H - O

    Mrs. Akaraz (Scheduling Office): Last Names Beginning with P - Z

     

    Please do not call the school to check your student out on this day unless it is an emergency. Due to the high volume we anticipate receiving, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to clear all messages that are called in prior to the assembly.  

    * The pep assembly will begin at 1:30 pm. No check-out passes will be delivered tomorrow, so students who do not bring a note first thing in the morning will have to stop by their assistant principal's office to pick up their check-out passes.  

    The special assembly schedule for Friday, October 15th is posted below.

    Thank you for your support and cooperation,

    SHS Administration

    Posted by SHS Administration on 10/12/2021 3:00:00 PM

    Parent Directions: Registering for HS Parent/Teacher Conferences with PTCFast.com

    You can begin signing up for virtual conferences on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, at 12:00 pm.

    The site will be open until Monday, October 18, 2021, at 12:00 pm.

    Sign-up is first-come, first-serve due to the limited number of slots each day.

    Parent tasks to set up P/T conferences:

    • Click on the school conference link or you can find it in the “Communications Corner” section of our school’s website.
    • Select all the teachers you need to see for your child.  Click “submit”.
    • Choose the option on the screen that applies to what you are scheduling.
    • Fill in the fields for Student First Name, Student Last Name, your (parent) name, your (parent) email address, your (parent) email address again to confirm it, then a phone number.  Click “submit”.
    • Go to the email account you used to register and open the email from PTCFast that says, “Select date/time for Teacher Conference Now”.
    • Click on the link in the email message that says, “Click here to select conference time”.
    • Select the day and time you want to meet with each of the teachers shown on the screen.
    • Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “confirm selections and exit” if you are done.  If you need to schedule additional conferences, click “register for additional classes”.
    • You will get an email sent to the email address you used when registering with PTCFast that has your conference schedule and the virtual conference links for each teacher--these are the links you will use to access your conferences.  Please note that each link will be different, as each teacher has their own meeting link.

    Parent tasks to access P/T conferences during your scheduled day and time:

    • Open the email from PTCFast that was sent to you after you chose the times for your conferences--the links to get to the virtual conferences are in that email.
    • When it’s time for a particular conference, click on that teacher’s conference link in the email from PTCFast and that will put you into the waiting room for that teacher.  The teacher will let you in from the waiting room when it is time for your conference. 
    • Please remember that we are running five-minute conferences to meet with as many parents as possible.  We must stay on schedule to ensure parents are not waiting longer than necessary to meet with a teacher and then potentially missing their scheduled time with the next teacher.

     

    Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.

  • SHS Interim Assistant Principal

    Posted by Stevenson High School on 9/8/2021 2:00:00 PM

    Dear Spartans and Families

    I am excited to announce that Mr. David Mitchell will be serving as our interim Assistant Principal in the Attendance Office as the district looks to find a permanent replacement. 

    As you may have heard, Ms. Lindsay Rousseau transferred to Emerson Middle School just prior to the start of the school year.

    You may recognize Mr. Mitchell as a long-time teacher at Holmes Middle School and the current hockey coach at Stevenson. I have no doubt that Mr. Mitchell will be a great asset to the Stevenson Community during his time with us. 

    His contact information is as follows

    dmitchel@livoniapublicschools.org

    734-744-2660 ext. 48991

     

    Please give Mr. Mitchell a warm Spartan welcome. 


    All the best

    Mr. Mazzoni

    Posted by Stevenson High School on 9/7/2021 3:30:00 PM
    Dear Spartans and Families.
     
    It was awesome to see our students in the building today. 
     
    If by chance anyone still has textbooks / Chromebooks / other LPS issued materials from previous years, it would be greatly appreciated if those items are returned to the Main Office. 
     
    As a reminder, we are returning to our regular daily schedule tomorrow - Wednesday, September 8, 2021. First hour starts at 7:25 am
    Doors will open at 7:00 am. Breakfast is available. 
     
    If you have LCTC 1st/2nd block, the bus will leave from the bus loop at 7:05 am
     
    Last, the proper wearing of the mask is that the nose and mouth are both fully covered. 
     
    Go Spartans!

    Pete Mazzoni
    Principal, Stevenson High School
