For students and parents/guardians new to Smiths Station High School, some information about morning and afternoon traffic flow:Mornings - Please keep in mind that students should be in their 1st period class (or for the first day of school, homeroom) by 8:45 EST. We recommend arriving early for at least the first few days until you are comfortable with the routine. Traffic issues do not excuse tardies. Student drivers can enter either the main entrance (at the school sign) or the secondary entrance. Students should park in the main student parking lot, closest to Lee Road 430 (the back parking lot is used for overflow parking only). For parent/guardian drop off, please use the secondary entrance (the one further from the school sign). You will enter the first parking lot that you come to from that direction to drop your child off (please do not park), and turn left to exit back out of the secondary entrance. Neither student nor parent drivers should enter the bus line parking.Afternoons - The bell rings for dismissal at 4:00 EST. At this time, the main school entrance is exit only for students leaving the student parking lot. Students going right should be in the right lane, students going left should be in the left lane. Students cannot drive straight to cross the railroad tracks across from the school. For parents picking students up, you will use the secondary entrance to enter, and follow signs to the first parking lot that you come to from that direction and park in a parking spot to wait for your child. When leaving, you will go left and exit back out of the secondary entrance. Again, neither student nor parent drivers should enter the bus line parking.Please be cautious in both the mornings and afternoons of school staff directing traffic. Also, deputies will be out to enforce school speed zones and other traffic laws.
All Schedule Changes for the 2019-2020 school year were due to the SSHS Main Office by 3:00 EST on Friday, August 2nd.
No more schedule changes will be done unless the school has made a mistake on your schedule, or you were on the waiting list for a class that has become available. This includes once school begins.
The SSHS PTO is offering parents/guardians the opportunity to run a banner on the SSHS school marquee for 3 days to wish a student happy birthday. The cost is $10, and you must give a 10 business day notice. Information is available in the SSHS main office.
PayPAMS.com for ALL FEES is now available. This system provides a convenient and safe place to make school meal and fee payments, eliminating the need for students to bring cash/checks to school. It is available on the web or any iOS or Android mobile device.When signing up, select Lee County Board of Education - Opelika, complete the registration form, enter student info, and select the appropriate school. If you already have a lunch account, you must create a separate account for school fees.
Parking Passes for the 2019-2020 school year are now being sold in the SSHS main office for anyone who would like to purchase one. They are $20.00 and will increase to $25.00 on October 1st. All students who park on the SSHS campus are required to have a parking permit.
Food deliveries from services such as UberEats and GrubHub or pizza deliveries cannot be accepted at Smiths Station High School.
Any food brought to SSHS for a student must be brought by someone on a student’s contact list and should be delivered in a brown paper bag or lunchbox/bag.
FYI, SSHS can no longer accept checks written in gel ink (pink, purple, red, etc). These checks cannot be read by the scanners that our bank uses for processing.
