The Drivers Ed classes that start on April 30th have been postponed until further notice.
A Message from the MHSA Executive Director: Because of the previous MHSA Board action, resumption of spring activities depended on our student’s ability to return to in-person instruction without restrictions by May 4th and if in-person instruction didn’t resume by that time without restrictions, spring activities would be cancelled.The spring 2020 activity season is cancelled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic which is affecting communities across our country. We look forward to the resumption of high school activities during the 2020-2021 school year with some level of normalcy. Our office will be entirely focused on contingency plans for the 2020 fall season and beyond, should they be needed.
We just want to give a shout out to our kitchen staff for the amazing work they have done to provide breakfast and lunch to those kids who need it! They are truly appreciated!!
Starting tomorrow, April 16th the breakfast and lunch meal pickup time is changing. You can pickup your meals at the high school kitchen door between noon and 1:00pm. Thank you!
The MHSA Executive Board, during a conference call to conduct Association business on Thursday morning, took the following action regarding MHSA Spring Activities: All MHSA spring activities will be suspended through April 24th. This includes practices and contests/meet/festivals. Resumption of spring activities will depend on our student’s ability to return to in-person instruction by May 4th. If in-person instruction doesn’t resume by that time, spring activities will be cancelled. We take seriously the directives from the Governor, State Health Department and CDC for the safety of our students and for their communities. Their safety is our top priority during these challenging times. If spring activities are resumed, the practice requirement for sports at that time will be five practices from resumption except for golf which will be the normal two practices required. If spring activities are resumed, post season formats will be adjusted by the MHSA with Executive Board approval.

Dear Parents, Students, and Staff of SGCHS, We have been working closely with Public Health to take the necessary precautions at school, in regard to our state's response to COVID-19. We understand the concerns and questions that you may have. At this time we are asking students and staff to please stay home if they are sick, especially if they have a fever and/or cough, shortness of breath, or other respiratory symptoms. Our goal is to keep the school healthy. I will continue to assess each individual as they report signs and symptoms of illness, and will be erring on the side of caution as when to send students home from school. Our Public Health Nurse, Jennifer Chappell, and I remain in contact as we are working together to provide you with the most recent information as it becomes available from MT DPHHS. It is always our priority to keep the health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff first and foremost. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRACTICE GOOD HYGIENE WITH A STRONG EMPHASIS ON HAND WASHING! Sincerely, Susan Sondeno, R.N.,B.S.N. School Nurse
