  • Smiths Station High School is beginning the process of registration for the 2020-2021 school year.  The Course Selection Guide is available on our school webpage under the "Latest News" section.  Important dates and reminders about registration and schedules will also be available on the school webpage as well as the SSHS Facebook page (www.facebook.com/SmithsStationHighSchool).

    Course selection and registration is a serious process, and not a task to be taken lightly.  Beginning on Monday, February 24th, counselors will be meeting with students during their History classes to discuss course offerings, courses required for graduation, class prerequisites, and other topics related to registration.  They will also be handing out Course Selection Sheets.  Course Selection Sheets should be completed, signed by a parent/guardian, and returned to the student’s History teacher NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MARCH 6THIt is important that the courses selected on this sheet are done so with care, as this sets into motion a complex process.  Once choices are made, the master schedule is developed and the school is staffed for the coming year in order to meet that demand.  Students need to understand the importance of the decisions they make when selecting courses and that he/she will live with the decisions they have made.

    Students will be able to view a DRAFT copy of their schedule for next year in late May or early June on their Chalkable/STI Home account.  Understand that this will be a DRAFT schedule.  A student’s schedule may change from May to the time that school starts due to changes in the master schedule.  Students will be offered the opportunity to make schedule changes for elective courses until Friday, July 31, 2020 and for core classes until Friday, August 14th (pending the 2020-2021 school calendar).  Schedule Change Request forms will be available in the main office, as well as online (students may submit in person or online using their school email account).  Any schedule changes will require administrative approval.  Schedule changes requesting a different teacher for the same course will not be considered.  Schedule changes will not be permitted after the deadlines, unless the school has made a mistake in the schedule (this includes during the school year and second semester).  

    Students that do not complete the registration process by the established deadlines and with the required signatures will have all courses selected by his/her counselor or an administrator and will forfeit the opportunity to make any changes.  PLEASE ADHERE TO ALL DEADLINES AND PROCEDURES TO ENSURE THAT YOU RECEIVE A SCHEDULE THAT IS THE MOST BENEFICIAL TO YOUR DESIRED LEARNING OUTCOMES.

  • 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.
