Click this Link to see course offerings, dates, and registration information. There will also be a summer session of eCredit Recovery which may be a good alternative for students who can not attend the Longmont High School summer school dates. Space is limited and offered on a first come, first served basis so register now! Contact your student’s counselor with questions.
Advanced Placement tests. Our students’ good-faith efforts on the state assessments also provide us with important data to gauge how well our classrooms are teaching the standards and the requisite skills students need in order to be successful in college and in most careers. SCHS is certainly well known for producing strong leaders and great citizens who understand and routinely exhibit their commitment to community in all senses of the word. We look forward to proving yet again on this year’s state tests that SCHS is also among the best schools… anywhere… academically.

Senior Class President
Check out the updated 2015-16 Maroon/Silver SCHS Calendar. There have been a few updates since the beginning of the year. The calendar includes spring break through graduation. Note the SCLA Evening of Excellence time change. This event will now start at 6:00 p.m. instead of 6:30 p.m.
Please see Ms. Lindsey if you are unable to attend Prom because of the date change. Bring your wristband to her office and receive a refund. Tickets will be sold in Ms. Lindsey’s office this week and begin again on Monday May 9th.
If you ordered a tuxedo from Generation Tux please keep your order. The company has very generously agreed to let you keep your order until Prom.
Online registration for all 2016-17 sports will open on July 1, 2016. In order to be eligible to tryout, all student-athletes must be registered online as well as have a current physical on file with Ms. Lehman in the Athletics Office.
Visit the SCHS Athletics website: http://schs-raptors.com/ for schedules or additional information.
All those interested in trying out need to complete the forms in the online registration system as well as turn in a valid physical with Ms. Lehman in the SCHS athletic office. Physicals are valid for one calendar year, so students who already have a physical on file with Silver Creek just need to verify that information with Ms. Lehman. Need a blank physical form? Click HERE to print.
Once the online registration forms have been completed and physicals turned in, athletes are given a clearance card. Coaches will collect the clearance cards at the first tryout date.
You may NOT participate without a clearance card.
For registration questions, please contact Athletic Secretary, Melissa Lehman: 720-494-3729 or email@example.com.

It also gives you peace of mind — not having to worry about looking for lunch money every day or having to worry that it might get lost or used for things other than lunch.
Meal Charging Guidelines – It is very important to keep you child’s account current. If you have any questions about the account, please call your child’s school kitchen manager.
MY School Bucks now can be used to make online payments to your student’s lunch account quickly, easily and securely. Online payments are a simple, safe and secure way to make payments to your students account 24 hours a day at your convenience.
Click here to make prepayments to your child’s meal account online anytime at MySchoolBucks.com!
Send Check or Cash
You can always bring money personally or send it with your student. Please place it in an envelope marked clearly with your student’s name, their ID #, the $ amount and the check #. Turn in prepaid deposits to the cafeteria cashier(s) or school office.
TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE – please contact Lois Davis at 720-494-3721 or her direct line: 720-494-3738, or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include the student’s first and last name as well as the date and reason for the absence. The absence must be called in or reported by email within 48 hours of the absence in order to be excused. After 48 hours, absences can only be excused by the student’s assistant principal.
TAKING YOUR STUDENT OUT OF SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL DAY– Any student who needs to leave during the school day should bring a signed note to the attendance window before school (or you can email a request to email@example.com) indicating the time you would like him/her to be excused. The student will receive a pink pass to give to the teacher for the class from which the student will be leaving early. Students should always sign out at the attendance window before they leave. You can meet your child at the attendance window or tell him/her to sign out and meet you outside. The attendance clerk will use the note to excuse the student in Infinite Campus. If the absence is a last-minute appointment, call the office as soon as possible so your student can pick up a pass during passing period. We know that emergencies arise and want to make the pick-up as easy as possible. Planning ahead limits classroom disruption.
Extended absences (vacation) – There is an “Extended Leave of Absence” form students should submit prior to leaving for an extended time. Forms are only needed if a student will be absent for more than 3 days. This form allows teachers to document any assignments a student will be missing and their current grade in class. Parents and students are required to sign the form, and after teachers have added grades/homework, students must get signatures from administration and return the form to the attendance clerk.
Health office visits- Students who are not feeling well need to let their teacher know so the students can be excused to visit the health office. Students leaving school from the health office can sign themselves out and meet parents outside. Parents/Guardians have 48 hours to excuse absences. We strongly encourage students to contact their parents from the health office and not from the classroom.
